This Lime-S SN2.5 e-scooter was used in countries where Lime has a presence and was intended to be launched in New Zealand. Before the launch, however, the model was deemed not durable enough for Lime's shared-use model and it was recalled globally.
Lime then started to design its e-scooters in-house with shared use in mind. This is a popular model with other shared-use e-scooter companies and as a personally owned device.
