  1. Will the Hedgehog fit in my boot space?
    When folded, the Hedgehog will fit comfortably in to the majority of car boot spaces. It is roughly 2ft x 2ft x 1ft. Please check the size of your boot before purchase to ensure fit, but any standard supermini and bigger available in the UK should not prove a problem.
  2. Can I get spare batteries?
    The Hedgehog runs off two Lithium batteries (supplied) which between them will deliver between 7.5-9.3 miles each. Additional batteries can be purchased if required.
