Stylish and environmentally friendly: Vespa Elettrica

In the big city we prefer to move on two wheels. Not because this is the most luxurious mode of transport, but because it is very convenient. The speed with which you get from A to B is many times higher than covering the same distance in your car. To be able to do it in a very stylish and environmentally conscious way, Vespa has given us a new alternative to today’s scooters. The Vespa Elettrica is the environmentally conscious alternative to the traditional scooter.

The Vespa as we all know it has been around for quite some time. For no less than 70 years, Vespa has managed to build a product that is leading and has a very charming appearance. In 2018, things will finally change – Vespa is also moving with the times.

The Vespa Elettrica is a contemporary icon and is synonymous with advanced connectivity and driving pleasure in silence. For personalization, eco-friendliness and elegance.

The Elettrica comes in a ‘Space-age-chrome-and-blue’ livery. Something that gives the scooter a futuristic look and makes it clear that we are dealing with an electric vehicle – hence the blue accents.

The most striking detail on this scooter is the digital dashboard with 4.3 inch TFT color screen on the handlebar. It shows the ride parameters and provides ride statistics to help you improve your driving style. The Vespa Mia system developed by the Piaggio Group guarantees full connectivity between the vehicle and the smartphone.

Thanks to Bluetooth communication and a special app, the display becomes an extension of the smartphone, which you can use safely without taking your hands off the wheel: you can answer phone calls, view message notifications, activate voice commands and manage music. The app will also save the vehicle’s parameters and last position.

This scooter offers excellent throttle response, an easy and enjoyable ride and up to 100 km of continuous range thanks to a lithium-ion battery and a system that recovers kinetic energy during deceleration. The beating heart of the Vespa Elettrica is a silent, technologically advanced power unit.

The scooter is powered by a 4kW power unit and according to Vespa, this makes the scooter faster than traditional 50cc scooters. Something we can safely believe given the electric drive (which ensures that all power is immediately available). When using the normal wall socket, the scooter would be fully charged in four hours.

It is said that the battery is not removable, so you must have a driveway, storage room, shed or garage (box) with a socket. Or recharge at friends. Surely that cannot be the intention with a vehicle that you mainly use in the city, where many people live in an apartment.

A hybrid version will also be produced. This Elettrica X will be able to cover 200 kilometers and is partly powered by a combustion engine. The scooter will be expected early next on the road. As far as prices are concerned, nothing is known yet.

Vespa offers many options for personalization. And we are not used to anything different from Vespa, the design is absolutely unique and refined. Complete the Elettrica look with matching accessories, such as helmets, backpacks and glasses.
