Razor and Jeep Are Collaborating on a Scooter

The new Jeep electric scooter has half the wheels as a Wrangler but it's 1/10th the price—what’s the deal on the new collab with scooter super-company Razor?

It seems movies, fashion, and rekindled celebrity flames aren't the only cultural hotspots throwing back to the early 2000s lately. Razor, the creator of 2000’s
Toy of the Year
, the A Scooter, has paired with Jeep to put a grownup scooter on the market.
The Jeep RX200 runs on a high-torque, 200-watt motor which is
sustainably powered
by a rechargeable 24-volt battery, and is dubbed by Jeep as appropriate for “trail use.” The battery provides enough charge to run for 40 minutes—or a total of 8 miles—and can get up to 12 mph. 
Put a boost in your step with the twist-grip throttle built into the riser-style handlebars. A rear disc brake ensures that the rider doesn't get too carried away. Surprisingly chunky 8-inch air-filled tires keep the rider balanced and the ride smooth, which will be helpful in the off-roading conditions that Jeep hints the RX200 is built for.  

Silly kids, scooters are for adults

It's available in one color: Army Green, which not-so-subtly represents the Jeep brand, and also suggests that it's to be used by tougher, cooler individuals than the A Scooter. If color-coding isn't enough to convey the target demographic of the RX200, the directions for use are explicit: Jeep
a maximum weight of 154 pounds and a minimum age of 18 years. 
While completely understandable that a vehicle with no protective cabin that can travel up to 12 mph has an age minimum, it has caused more than a few would-be-customers to wonder how many 154-pound adults Jeep thinks are in the market for a $400 scooter.
However, it could also cost $500—it depends on whether you purchase from
website. More than a little awkward of an apparent miscommunication, given that both companies are cross-marketing the scooter on their own social media pages. 
This is Jeep’s first collaboration with Razor, and Kim Adams House, Head of Merchandising for Jeep’s parent company Stellantis, was
by the Detroit Free Press that “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.”

It's electric!

Meanwhile, the RX200 is not Razor’s first rodeo in the world of adult or electric scooters. Their 18+ product listings include the C25, E300 HD, EcoSmart SUP, EcoSmart Metro HD, and E Prime III, each of which is in roughly the same pricing ballpark as the RX200. 
EVs, e-bikes, and now possibly e-scooters are all on the rise as the technology becomes more sophisticated and consumers take on more responsibility to reduce their personal vehicle emissions. Could the RX200 become a
viable transportation
option for commuters in fair weather climates? Will it rise to cult status like the Razor A did two decades ago?
