Helbiz is acquiring Wheels and making micromobility far more accessible

This week, Italian micromobility vendor Helbiz announced it signed a letter of intent to acquire US escooter company Wheels. Doing so will create a powerful fleet that encompasses ebikes, escooters, mopeds, adaptive vehicles, and Wheels’ two-wheeled, sit-down device. 

There are a lot of reasons why I think this is an excellent partnership: 

Targeting an underserved portion of riders 

I’ve been a big fan of Wheels for a while. Founded in 2018 in California, the company creates a type of scooter that expands the market accessibility.
