Aiming to offer a cleaner mobility alternative in urban environments, Honda has launched its quirky personal mobility concept in the US.

Called Motocompacto, the foldable all-electric micro-motorcycle has three wheels and a tiny powertrain that can get the bike up to a maximum speed of 15 mph (25 km/h). With a range of up to 12 miles (19 km) on a single charge, this electric vehicle offers an efficient and eco-friendly mode of transportation for short trips and commutes.

Better yet, the Motocompacto folds into its compact, light, and stackable carrying case, making it easy to move in a vehicle, take with you on public transport, or store in confined spaces. As the website says: It fits in and stands out.

Honda pitches the zero-emissions bike as an easy and fun-to-ride mobility solution that significantly reduces carbon footprint while offering great convenience. It looks ideal for getting around cityscapes or college campuses and for use as a first or last-mile vehicle.

"Motocompacto is uniquely Honda - a fun, innovative, and unexpected facet of our larger electrification strategy," said Jane Nakagawa at American Honda Motor Company.

People in the US can now get their hands on this little electric scooter at and at participating Honda and Acura automobile dealers at a starting price of $995.
