FAQs

How do you define sustainability at NAON?


By ensuring each part of our scooter meets our high standards of quality, we can be certain that our scooter will continue to operate smoothly and without degradation for years to come. For example, our aluminium parts are anodised to protect against corrosion and the transparent windscreen is treated with a multi-resist coating to protect against abrasion and UV radiation. Not only does this increase the lifespan of individual components, but it ensures that they continue to operate at their maximum efficiency. We try to use recycled as well as recyclable materials whereever applicable. We decrease the logistics footprint by means of local sourcing.




In which countries do you sell NAON scooters?


At the time of our market launch in 2024 we will start selling our products to customers all over Europe. Nevertheless, we are receiving strong demands from other countries and thus are doing our best to start shipping depending on local demand to markets outside of the EU until the end of 2024. Nevertheless, our midterm goal is to set up local factories outside the EU to guarantee optimized logistics chains.

What is Battery as a Service (BaaS) ?


Our battery subscription offer allows maximum flexibility and sets an end to battery life anxiety. To contribute to resource-saving usage of valuable resources, we are working on a solution to offer our customers the option to choose a battery rental plan with their NAON scooter, which allows them to use automotive quality batteries. Only a battery as a service approach will allow us to establish a circular economy approach and to guarantee a sufficient battery health of our products. The advante for our customers is, that the initial purchase price is much lower and we guarantee a minimum range as long as you are leasing the batteries. Worn batteries will be exchanged, returned and recycled accorningly. This is not only convenient for our customers, but also a resource-saving measure.




How is NAON trying to reduce ressources?


The scooters main components will be constructed from two key materials; Aluminium and recycled PET Plastic. PET is both lightweight and flexible, making it an excellent choice for non structural components of the scooter. Aluminium is amongst the most environmentally friendly metals on the planet. On a percentage basis, it is the most recycled of any industrial metal. We use Laser cut and pressed Aluminium to construct the main frame of the scooter as well as components from CNC’d aluminium. Where possible we use already recycled materials, or material that can easily be separated and recycled at the end of life. We are also exploring other opportunities for recycled and ecological materials including handlebar and footrest grips containing recycled tyres, as well as organic faux leather seat trim made from Cactus skin.




How is NAON helping to reduce waste?


Utilising functional components as key styling elements, we are able to simplify our product and apply more focus on refining every detail. This way we can reduce the overall weight of the scooter as well as the number of components used. We format our laser cut components for manufacture in such a way that the minimal amount of material is wasted. Smaller components are then made from offcuts of the larger components. This technique is called “ nesting” and reduces both manufacturing costs, as well as material waste. The remaining material is then ground and recycled for further use in industry.

Can you charger the scooter at a 120V system?


If we offer our products in your country, our chargers will perfectly adapt to your local 120V system, since we will work with experienced suppliers and existing chargers from the market.




How many persons can sit on the NAON zero-one scooter?


The seat is design for the comfort of two passengers. When we release our first driving videos, you will get an idea of the space we have on the NAON zero-one.

The rear passenger can simply use the footrest of the driver, since they stretch out to the very rear and thus keep the feet in position and away from the wheels.

For our serial edition, we will offer a fender sufficient enough to protect the person in the rear.
