Hyundai's electric Ioniq Scooter looks more fun than its electric car at CES 2017

Hyundai's ultra-compact concept is an electric scooter that fits into the Ioniq Electric car's door and charges from the EV's battery.

There's a new member of Hyundai's Ioniq family of electrified vehicles. Joining the Ioniq Electric, Hybrid and Plug-in at CES 2017 is the Ioniq Scooter concept.

The Ioniq Scooter is purely conceptual at this point, but it wouldn't be much of a stretch to imagine Hyundai offering something like this as an upgrade for future Ioniq models.

The Scooter is designed to be an ultra-compact first and last mile mobility solution. You'd ride it to and from an Ioniq Electric car parked a distance away from your home or destination.

The Scooter is stored in a pocket in the Ioniq Electric's front door -- rather than its trunk -- and can charge itself from the car's battery so it's ready to roll at the end of each trip.

Users can fold the Scooter with one hand into a compact package that can be carried indoors or tucked into a shoulder bag.

The small electric motor's acceleration and braking is accomplished when you press your foot on a pad over the rear wheel or via a thumb switch.

The scooter also features front and rear lights to enhance safety when scooting at night and an LCD readout on the handlebars with information about range.
