You may have heard the terms First Kilometre and Final Kilometre?

These refer to a person’s first or final stage on a commute or trip, for work or leisure. Companies are looking at how the public travel to and from public transport links so they can be greener and not take their car. Many brands are also looking to change people’s total journey for shorter commutes, shopping and leisure activities.

Kymco, the South Korean manufacturer, has for many years produced Scooters to supply the residents of crowded Asian cities where congestion is prevalent.

The brand has expanded to provide Western countries, and its models are extremely popular. They strive to innovate and find solutions for not only First and Final Kilometre travel but complete journeys, and one of their new creations is the IONEX i-One.
