Although it is not the first time we see electric scooters on the market, there is much to like about the new Vespa Elettrica.
It is not known yet when this model will hit the roads, we know that it will be battery-powered. Also, other details such as charging modes, top speed, and range haven’t been announced yet, but we are sure that the new Vespa Elettrica will have the same classy appearance regardless of its high-tech upgrades.
Besides styling, rumor has it the new model will retain the same handling as well. Regarding significant changes, the latest Vespa will come with no fuel costs and a tremendous power thanks to the electric torque delivery.
Range will most likely change, but this won’t represent a drawback for the Elettrica, which is a lightweight vehicle. Needless to say that this model will be quite expensive compared to other previous scooters.
Although they are more affordable than the Vespa Elettrica, the new model provides fuel savings, as previously mentioned. Also, another upgrade will be an app which will enable users to control their scooters using their smartphones.
This means that Vespa will be more than user-friendly because it will take user experience to the next level. Piaggio is the most popular company on the scooter market, and the manufacturer of the Vespa brand.
Piaggio announced the release of its latest scooter two days before the Milan Motorcycle Show and the Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo e Motociclo, or EICMA. A photo with the concept model was published on the company’s official website, and it will be called Vespa Elettrica.
Regarding its exterior, this electric scooter will have a metal body with appealing blue hues, whereas all other Vespa models are made of steel. As a company’s spokesperson said, this model promises to come with many other “technological and innovative connectivity solutions.”
The “connected scooter” idea aims to make users feel safer and more comfortable using the vehicle. Although it is not known when it will arrive on the scooter market, analysts believe that the latest Vespa will be available starting from July next year.
We can assume that Vespa Elettrica aims to become the Tesla of the scooter industry thanks to its high-tech features.
