Vespa Reveals Its First Electric Scooter

The most iconic scooter brand in the world is working on releasing an electric scooter. The Vespa Elettrica Electric Scooter will have the same style, agility, ease of use and riding pleasure of a regular Vespa while being cheaper-to-run, eco-friendly and providing “technological and innovative connectivity solutions.”

Although Vespa has been in existence for about 70 years and has sold more than 18 million scooters worldwide, an all-electric Vespa would be a first for the company. The electric Vespa looks much like a regular Vespa with its standard steel body, however it does have distinct blue accents on the wheels, body and seat – a color that is popular when it comes to most other electric vehicles. Vespa is partnering up with some of the best electric motor developers in the world to develop the scooter, however exact specifications or pricing hasn’t been announced. While there are many electric scooters on the market, none of them carry the iconic Vespa badge and it is estimated the scooter would likely be priced somewhere in the $10,000 range.

Currently, production – and likely more specific details – for the Elettrica are planned for the second half of 2017.
