Following the huge success of the Auto Folding Dual Wheel Scooter, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare are delighted to launch the UltraFold, a new premium 4 wheel model designed to provide a flawless fusion of contemporary design, safety, comfort, and outstanding performance.

New for 2023, the UltraFold Auto Folding Scooter is a first-class addition to the Drive range, providing a variety of impressive new features to enhance the riders’ experience. This innovative remote folding model has a stylish slimline design, modern twin LED headlights, a rear LED light and an automatic speed assist which helps to reduce speed when cornering, providing great peace of mind. Plus… weighing only 22kg/48.5lb with the battery removed, it’s the lightest 4-wheel folding scooter in Drive’s history making it great to handle and ideal to transport in cars, planes or public transport.

Dallas Newsham – International Category Manager says:

“There are other folding scooters on the market that were designed to be lightweight, but this was often at the cost of its appearance and the loss of key features. It was imperative in our development process that the UltraFold had a stylish design, was very lightweight and included many key features and benefits to maximise the user’s experience.”

The UK folding scooter market continues to go from strength to strength, with many users choosing these compact folding scooters over the more traditional mini scooters that require splitting to fit in a car boot. The ease of remote-control folding operation is often the deal breaker, much preferred to assembling and disassembling the scooter before and after use. Plus, when folded to a compact size, they’re much easier to fit into car boots, leaving more space for additional items such as shopping.

Adam Naylor, Head of Regional Dealers told us:

“When we launched our first Auto Folding Scooter, a predecessor of the UltraFold, we were quietly confident that it would do well, however we were all surprised to see the part it played in changing the boot scooter market. This was followed by the development of our Dual wheel model, which continues to be popular and I’m now delighted to be launching the feature rich UltraFold. This truly is a step up and I’m convinced it will follow in the successful footsteps of the previous two models. Scooter season will be here before we know it, so our sales guys are looking forward to hitting the road to demonstrate this great new addition to our range”.

This new UltraFold Auto Folding scooter also features a wide front wheelbase providing enhanced stability and handling, armrests with extra-wide arm pads for added comfort and LED lights with side reflectors to help support users in lower light. It also has a comfortable padded seat with flip down backrest, a protective front impact bar and a durable travel bag comes as standard.

Dallas Newsham – continued

“This slimline stylish scooter is simple to use, it has an easy-to-understand display, variable speed functions and a height adjustable tiller. The UltraFold has a fresh modern design, features stylish black and silver wheel hubs and it is and is available in metallic red, purple or copper”.
