TGA, the UK’s leading mobility scooter specialist, has successfully launched the largest number of new products ever – five new scooters were unveiled on stand A59 at Naidex (NEC, 28-30 March).
Following an intriguing ‘launch countdown’ teaser campaign, TGA unveiled its five new quality scooters at Naidex. All visitors were invited onto stand A59 to see the Minimo Plus 4, Maximo Plus, Ibex, Zest and Zest Plus – new innovations from TGA that offer people living with restricted mobility more choice than ever before. To bring five new models to market at the same time has been a challenge for TGA however it understands the importance of providing exciting and different designs that meet evolving user needs. Compact and car boot scooters continue to be in high demand as people are looking for independence further afield whilst seeking solutions that can be stored in limited space. This resulted in lots of interest in TGA’s new compact scooters at Naidex 2017, especially the folding Minimo Plus 4.
The latest version of the best-selling Minimo includes a new front wheel design for users who prefer a more traditional 4-wheel scooter. The Minimo Plus 4 has front wheels that are further apart so stability is increased and hence more challenging terrain can be tackled with ease. This attractive model includes the ultra-fast folding mechanism that has provided highly popular across the UK and with carbon fibre components, it still weigh less than 10kg when lifting and levering into a car boot.
The friendly TGA product advisors were busy throughout the three days of Naidex demonstrating all five new products alongside the existing TGA range. The Maximo Plus is a new mid-sized folding scooter that is roadworthy with a higher top speed of 6mph, rear view mirror, LED lights and a horn. This spacious scooter provides both transportability and the comfort of a larger scooter with active suspension and pneumatic tyres. Alongside the Maximo Plus the new streamlined 8mph Ibex was unveiled which provides a new highly versatile larger scooter. Designed for urban and rural lifestyles the Ibex includes advanced suspension developed from the motorcycle industry, adjustable orthopaedic seat and a technologically advanced tiller with USB charging socket.
Completing the new line up TGA introduced the Zest and Zest Plus car boot scooters at Naidex. The Zest is a compact, well-engineered scooter that dismantles into five manageable components for strain-free lifting. Rare in the car boot class, the Zest and its larger brother, the Zest Plus, have active front and rear suspension – providing a smoother driving experience which was demonstrated on the busy TGA test drive track at Naidex. The test track gave visitors a unique opportunity to test drive all new models around a range of obstacles so a true appreciation of why TGA products are renowned for exceptional performance could be gleaned.
Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director, concluded: “The whole TGA team has worked hard to achieve our largest ever product launch and every member deserves the credit and positive response they received from visitors at Naidex. Everyone that came onto our stand was very impressed with the quality of our new range and how these products perfectly solve current mobility challenges. When introducing a new scooter there are always so many factors to consider – we have just completed this for five new products. I would like to thank the TGA team for their commitment in making this happen so that we can now help a wider range of people gain assured independence.”
