Sciurus vulgaris alpinus, that is the scientific name of the squirrel that lives in Asturias, but in these lands we simply call it ESGUIL.
It is small in size with strong legs that show its true agility, dexterity and speed. His daily task is to collect large quantities of food that he must then transport nimbly to his home in the forest.
They appear to be animals with very altruistic social behaviors. They are not always grouped together, but when it is the case, they support and help each other in everything. If a threat appears in the immediate vicinity, there is one that sounds the alarm. Surprisingly, this same individual is the last to go. A very brave act.
One morning our brave squirrel, ESGUIL, came down, like every day, from his tree house to explore his surroundings and take his morning walk. Without noticing the time elapsed and the distance traveled, he found a landscape very different from the usual … gray colors, buildings, streets and roads with numerous vehicles obstructing circulation, frantic rhythms on sidewalks full of people loaded with shopping bags and luggage, annoying noises, and also an unbreathable air … THE CITY
Something inside him went wrong, something made him take a step back and think about whether to move forward or to step back and let things take their natural course. A step backwards served to gather momentum … and that’s where our story begins….
THE IDEAL SMART VEHICLES ...
…TO MOVE AROUND THE CITY AND COVER THE LAST STRETCH OR THAT «LAST MILE». A NEW COMPLEMENT TO VISIT, TRAVEL AND MOVE WITH YOUR LUGGAGE. Do you know of any single-person electric transport that is stable, that can be driven without the need for balance, that incorporates as standard a department for shopping, everyday items, parcels or luggage, that does not require parking, and that is also… PORTABLE ?
ESGUIL’s objective is to provide sustainable mobility solutions to the problem of the transformation of cities, through the development and transfer of a know-how developed, created and patented for this purpose, making the door-to-door concept a reality in the last mile ….
We believe that if we really want things to change, we cannot keep doing the same old thing. From ESGUIL , we are not developing another electric scooter, nor another shopping trolley… what we are developing is the first patented SMUBER in the world, designed for the city, betting on the improvement and quality of our environment, reducing the carbon footprint thinking in a circular economy and improving the environment.
We are the squirrel that changed the forest for a more sustainable city.
