Skand Oy’s electric scooters are ridden all year round. In addition to Nordic seniors, the customer base includes young city dwellers and professional drivers, such as food couriers. Last year, the Nurmijärvi assembly plant completed more than 2,000 vehicles, and sales are growing fast. Why get an electric scooter for Northern climates?

Skand’s CEO Elias Smouni answers: “Scooters are well suited for winter. We have covered models, and open models are also suitable for year-round use. Especially for seniors, a three- or four-wheeled scooter is a good winter option because it does not slip, as can happen when walking.  

In general, electric mobility is a trend that is interesting and will become stronger. Electric scooters will replace part of the journeys made by bicycles, cars, or public transport. Gas is expensive, parking is difficult and waiting for the bus is boring. Even with current electricity prices, you can ride an electric scooter around the world for 400 euros. It is a cheap way to get around, which is important when everything else is more expensive. At the same time, reducing emissions is of interest to everyone.

Even though the company started with senior scooters, there are customers from far and wide. For example, food couriers have adopted the Scogo model, and we are the market leader. Similarly, the electric scooter gives freedom of movement to young people. They can drive to school, friends, and hobbies and are not dependent on public transport, which runs rarely or not at all. 

According to the feedback, the quality of products, service, and genuine care sets us apart from our competitors. We have customer service in each country’s language and always have standardized spare parts in stock. Although electric scooters are virtually maintenance-free, components such as brake pads, tires, or mirrors break or wear out during use.

Final assembly and quality control are done in Nurmijärvi. The location is a logical solution for us – employees can be found here, and it is a short distance to the capital region and the port of Vuosaari. The highway runs almost the entire way from the port to here. 

All in all, electric scooters are environmentally friendly, completely emission-free, inexpensive, and bring freedom of movement. We are doing climate work by replacing journeys made with a combustion engine with electric mobility.”
