The Berylline Story

In 2009, Berylline was merely a concept on paper, but today it is an emerging young enterprise with plans to produce the first 3-wheel F2A Hybrid Scooter in Detroit, Michigan. Several entrepreneurs that had previously worked together in the automotive sector joined forces to design and build an all-new vehicle. With a 2-wheel in-front design and a low center of gravity, they believed this vehicle would provide for maximum stability, ease of handling, and extremely good fuel economy. Early marketing research in partnership with Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan, indicated that this highly efficient hybrid scooter could fit a niche segment for Baby Boomers retiring to warmer climates, college campuses, city commuters, and the coastal rental markets throughout the United States. In addition, with the assistance of OU INCubator, Automation Alley® and Ann Arbor SPARK, the company was able to develop and produce prototype vehicles, which were tested in the metropolitan Detroit area over the past two years. Berylline received positive media feedback from Channel 7 News, John McElroy’s Autoline segment, ONTV, as well as Fox 2 news in Detroit. Plans are to begin production in late 2017
