Vespa’s first electric scooter will arrive in 2018

by John_A

Last year, Vespa announced that it was working on an electric scooter and today it has released some specs and an approximate availability date. The Vespa Elettrica is a silent, fully electric scooter with acceleration capabilities in line with those of traditional scooters, according to Vespa. It has a 62-mile range and can be fully charged in just four hours through a normal wall-mounted electrical outlet. The battery will reportedly last around 10 years, but will drop to 80 percent capacity after 1,000 charge cycles or so. The Elettrica comes in a chrome grey color, but buyers can choose between seven color options for the decorative trim.

Along with the Elettrica, Vespa is also releasing a hybrid version — the Elettrica X — which can be driven twice as far as the fully electric version on a single charge. The scooters are set to be available for sale sometime in 2018, but the exact date and pricing haven’t been announced just yet.
