The unu City Series
unu launches a new video series introducing different cities through the eyes of people for whom it is home
Berlin, August 8th 2016
The city being the reason for the existence of unu, the electric scooter company have started a new series inspired by exactly that - the city. The spotlight is on the individual and it’s up to this person to introduce their city the way they experience it. In the first series it is Mathias Schober aka DJ SHOW-B who takes us through Munich.
The unu is a result of combining innovative technology, timeless aesthetics and urban flair. It’s created for the city and the people urging to explore it. The unu City Series is a new series of videos focusing on a city seen from one person's perspective. The video featuring Mathias Schober with focus on Munich is the first in line and also happens to be the city where the unu venture started.
“The city is the reason for the existence of unu and the people living in it is the reason for the success of unu and this is exactly why we got inspired to this series. We want to get to know the people living and exploring the cities that we love and having SHOW-B taking us around Munich was a perfect start to this new series.” says Elias Atahi, Co-founder and CXO.
Mathias Schober has ever since an early age been into making music and right after he turned the legal age of 18 he started playing in clubs. Though his sound is bound to the tunes of house music, he manages to mix classic elements, fresh kick drums and city sounds with a contemporary twist. To describe Mathias Schober you don’t need much more than the fours words “Just House And Passion“.

unu - the smart electric scooter
unu combines innovative technology with stylish aesthetics and urban flair. With their first product, the electric scooter with portable batteries launched in 2014, unu delivered for city residents a new mobility solution. City riding with the smart electric scooter means an environmentally friendly and practically noiseless journey.
The firm’s homepage unumotors.com allows the unu buyer to pick a configuration from six body colours and three options for the seat to personalize the electric scooter. The unu will be delivered directly to the customer’s front door. The affordability of the unu – from 1,699 Euro in Germany - is thanks to an e-mobility business model new in the automotive industry. With running costs of 70 Cent / 100 km the unu is also the most economical way of being mobile in the city.
The unu electric scooter is fitted with the KERS technology (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) familiar from Formula 1 race cars – an application of the brakes sends energy back to replenish the batteries. The batteries are portable and can be recharged at any 230 V power outlet. In several cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland anyone interested in experiencing this innovative technology for themselves can sign up for a test drive. These are organized through a strategically implemented network of unu Pioneers. In 2016 further European cities will be added to the list of those where an unu test drive is offered.
Since 2015 the unu crew is co-located in the Factory Berlin complex, a centre for start-up enterprises which is also the home of Twitter, Pinterest, SoundCloud and Freelectics. The young firm is expanding rapidly and now has a staff of almost forty. In addition there are over fifty unu Pioneers deployed to arrange test drives for potential customers.
