In the realm of electric mobility scooters, particularly those designed for seniors, the arrival of the Tectus marks a significant departure from the traditional. Launched by Canadian electric mobility company Avvenire, the Tectus scooter combines functionality with futuristic aesthetics. This fresh perspective on senior mobility solutions sets a new standard in the market.

Unlike the conventional designs that dominate the market, the Tectus is a three-wheeled, fully-enclosed, all-wheel-drive vehicle. Its design wouldn’t seem out of place in a sci-fi movie like Blade Runner 2049, making it a stylish alternative to the typically utilitarian options available.

The Tectus stands out not just for its eye-catching design but also for its impressive technical specifications. It is powered by two electric motors, one for the front wheel and another for the rear axle. These deliver a combined output of 2,000 watts.

This powertrain enables the Tectus to reach a top speed of 32 km/h (20 mph) and, thanks to its lithium battery pack, achieve a range of up to 160 km (99 miles) on a single charge. Such performance metrics ensure that users can undertake their journeys with confidence and efficiency.

The Tectus features a forward-tilting motorized canopy for easy access, enhancing user convenience.

Entry and exit from the Tectus are uniquely facilitated by a motorized canopy that tilts forward, eliminating the need for conventional doors. This feature is particularly advantageous for users with limited mobility, offering easy access. Additionally, the canopy can be operated remotely via a wireless remote, enhancing convenience for users.

The scooter also includes a lidded box at the rear for transporting groceries and other items, further emphasizing its practicality. This thoughtful design consideration makes the Tectus a highly functional vehicle for everyday use.

Avvenire has introduced two models of the Tectus: the Deluxe, priced at US$6,995, and the Ultimate, which costs $8,999. The Ultimate model is equipped with several advanced features, including a backup camera with obstacle sensors, running lights, a stereo sound system, GPS tracking, and the luxury of heating and air conditioning. For an additional fee, customers can also opt for wireless charging, adding an extra layer of convenience to the Tectus experience.

With its blend of design and functionality, the Tectus is set to redefine perceptions of electric mobility scooters. It offers a stylish, practical, and efficient option for seniors seeking independence and mobility in their daily lives.
