33. Can I apply for the THG Quote when I have the scooter via the scooter subscription?

No, since unu remains the scooter's owner, and the THG quota is only valid for owners of the vehicles, you cannot apply for it via the subscription. During the 36 months, you are as a customer, only a holder (but not the owner) of the vehicle, however, this does not entitle you to the THG quota.

34. Why don't you offer the 3kW Model for a subscription anymore?

We decided not to produce the 3kW anymore. Instead, we decided to offer our latest product addition the unu Scooter Move also for the subscription.
