Vespa reveals plans to release an electric scooter called the Elettrica


Tesla is the main company leading the electric vehicle charge but that is quickly changing.

This shift from gas to battery power is gaining in popularity, encouraging traditional manufacturers to develop new products and offer customers additional choices.

The latest is the Elettrica, a scooter powered by just battery from the Piaggio Group, the makers of the Vespa. The company says it plans to “redesign the mobility of the future” and its two-wheel electric bike will build off 70-years of design history and expertise.

“The Vespa Elettrica will, first and foremost, be a true Vespa, bringing the very latest in electric technology to a vehicle that will retain all the features that have been vital to its success,” notes Vespa on its site. “A perfect mix of excitement, technology and environmental friendliness that only Vespa can create.”

Unfortunately Piaggio has not released additional details related to an official release, pricing, availability, or the range of the vehicle’s battery.
