Investors get a kick out of e-scooters

E-kickscooters got a jolt in investments in recent years. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, micromobility companies (those providing bicycles, mopeds, and e-kickscooters) in Asia, Europe, and North America captured nearly $4 billion in investments. The share of those investments going to e-kickscooters specifically jumped 50 percentage points from 2018 to 2022, McKinsey analysis suggests.

About 90 percent of micromobility investments now go to e-kickscooters.
