Vespa Rolls Out Its Electric Scooter And We Love It

Piaggio’s debut the sleek Vespa Elettrica at EICMA, Milan in 2017 caused quite a stir and European pre-orders for the environmentally friendly, silent ride around town opened in 2018. The US and China being next in line with an early 2019 roll out.

With the iconic Vespa design intact, the Elettrica has some major upgrades such as its 4kW (5.3hp) engine with smooth acceleration and zero emissions. The generator, placed next to the electric motor doubles its range to 100km (62 miles). Plugged into a regular electrical outlet, the lithium-ion battery will be fully charged in four hours.

Piaggio called the model “a work of art with a highly technological heart,” with its new multimedia platform capable of using the AI of the company’s Gita robot. Although not available yet, these features will be rolled out in future and will include awareness of vehicles and pedestrians in the vicinity, collect traffic data and the driver’s driving habits over time. For now, it has full smartphone connectivity and a digital color TFT display to show information like range, speed, and riding mode.

The Vespa Elettrica cost around €6,390, not bad for a classic with a modern heart.
