June 23, 2020—The Ford-owned scooter rental company Spin has made its debut in Germany. At 30 Euros per minute, Germans in Cologne, Dortmund and Essen can rent the electric scooters for short trips.

Ford announced the launch in a press release. The company purchased Spin in 2018 amid a flurry of activity in the micromobility market. The scooters are popular but not universally accepted. New York banned electric scooters and bikes for a time before finally legalizing them earlier this year.
