“The harsh treatment that shared escooter and ebike batteries receive is the cause of more than half of life-cycle emissions of the industry,” says Simon Fellin, CEO of Teleport Mobility AB, a Swedish startup whose founding team boasts almost 100 years of experience from the transportation and mobility sector. He adds: “Battery pack production accounts for about one third, or approx 60 kg CO​2-​ eq (median of 118.5 CO​2-​ eq/kWh - ICCT 2018*) of the total production emissions of a shared vehicle. However, since batteries are sensitive to both temperature and impact, they do not last nearly as long as
