The odds are good that if you have taken your Jeep deep into the wilderness, you saw an occasion where you could have also used a compact, portable scooter. Say that you set up camp around your Wrangler and you would like something that you can use to get away from the campsite, perhaps to dispose of waste or to head to a fishing spot. In most cases, an average electric scooter would struggle with uneven ground, rocks, roots and other obstruction, but the new Jeep RX200 scooter is far from an average electric scooter.
Jeep collaborated with top scooter company Razor to design the RX200 and, like most Jeep SUVs, this electric scooter is built to handle rough terrain. The RX200 rides on 8-inch tires, made to grip rough and uneven ground with loads of grounds clearance (for an electric scooter). It also has plates to protect the electric drive components on both sides of the scooter, rubber gripping surface on the entire deck and a dark green paint scheme that creates a very military look. Of course, it also has Jeep and Razor branding.
“Razor is always looking for creative ways to excite our riders and provide an exhilarating adventure, said Jim Wagner, president of Razor Scooter. “We are thrilled to collaborate with the iconic Jeep brand to create the RX200, which is powerful enough for off-road capability to go explore the outdoors.”
The Jeep RX200 is powered by a 200-watt electric motor with a 24-volt battery system that leads to around 40 minutes of driving on a single charge. The top speed is 12 miles per hour, or 19 kilometers per hour. There is also a pair of headlights mounted in the middle of the handlebars, allowing for use at all hours of the day. Ultimately, it is probably more capable off-road than anything in Honda’s SUV lineup.
“Our collaboration with Razor to introduce its new electric scooter is a natural extension for the Jeep brand’s licensing portfolio,” said Kim Adams House, head of all brand licensing and merchandising for Stellantis. “With its rugged Jeep brand style-and-feel attributes, the Jeep RX200 is made for adventure, capturing the spirit of the brand’s core DNA to go anywhere and do anything.”
The Jeep RX200 electric scooter has an MSRP of $499 and it is available now from the Razor website.
