PIAGGIO GROUP: SALES BEGIN OF THE VESPA ELETTRICA, THE VESPA SCOOTER SET TO CHANGE THE FUTURE OF ELECTRIC MOBILITY ON TWO WHEELS
The first exclusive models of the most innovative Vespa scooter can be booked from today until November, only online
Milan, 8 October 2018 – Starting from today, as the online booking campaign for the Vespa Elettrica gets underway, mobility in general, and electric mobility in particular, will never be the same again. Customers can secure the privilege of being one of the very first owners of the green version of the iconic scooter of the Piaggio Group (PIA.MI).
Widescale marketing of the Vespa Elettrica through the Piaggio dealer network will commence in November to coincide with the EICMA 2018 motorcycle show in Milan. Sales will begin in Europe, to then be extended to the USA and Asia at the start of 2019.
The Vespa Elettrica is a contemporary icon of Italian technology in the world, a synonym for advanced connectivity and silence, personalisation and accessibility, respect for the environment and style. These values have always characterised the Vespa and are fully implemented again today in the Vespa Elettrica, confirming Vespa as a pioneering brand on its market.
With a power unit delivering top power of 4 kW, the Vespa Elettrica, assisted by the dynamic performance typical of electric engines, outshines a traditional 50ccscooter, particularly as regards acceleration and hill starts.
It guarantees easy, agile and enjoyable riding on city roads, even at the very low speeds of congested urban traffic, with the added benefits of absolute silence and absence of vibrations, helping to make cities less chaotic and more livable by avoiding both air and acoustic pollution.
The Vespa Elettrica has a maximum range of 100 km, a value that changes little between urban and extra-urban environments thanks to the scooter’s modern lithium ion battery and efficient kinetic energy recovery system, which recharges the battery during deceleration. To recharge the battery the rider simply plugs the cable located in the compartment below the saddle into a normal electric wall socket or into one of the recharging points that are becoming a common sight in today’s cities. A complete recharge normally takes 4 hours.
