Commuting is far from fun. Who enjoys sitting in endless traffic, swapping sweat-soaked clothes post-bike ride, or being squashed by strangers in crowded subways?
Our CEO Richard has worked in cities across the world and has always been disappointed by the lack of options available for commuters.
After coming across the first rental scooters, Richard recognised the beginnings of a solution. However, they didn’t solve everything. Often damaged, lacking a charge, or not being there when you need them makes them a pretty unreliable mode of transport.
Seeing an opportunity to transform the way we travel, Richard joined forces with Carson, an engineer who hadn’t used his feet to get around in five years. Together they knew they could build a game-changing, quality product that could make commuting fun… one designed for real roads and for real people. Six scooter prototypes and twelve test rides later, Taur was born.
Our team has expanded since then, but we remain as committed as ever to bringing the most versatile electric scooter to your streets. Why shouldn’t everyone have fun navigating the labyrinth of their city?Meet the team
We are seasoned professionals with years of expertise in relevant industries. You won’t find a group with more experience of electric vehicle technology, business, and online retailing.
Susana’s job involves communicating a consistent brand identity through all our platforms and liaising with our stakeholders, as well as advocating for our users’ needs. She tries to push for creative solutions to the brand’s problems, often questioning past decisions and forcing us all to take a step back so we can take two forwards!
Susana believes there’s no such thing as a stupid question, and that given that smiling is free, everyone should do it more often! In her spare time, she enjoys growing plants in her flat, baking (and eating) cheesecake and reading good literature.
