An All-Electric Vespa Is Set to Hit the Roads in 2018
Iconic and Electric Vespa
At the 75th International Cycle and Motorcycle Show (EICMA), The Piaggio Group — the Italian motorcycle maker behind the classic Vespa — finally revealed the initial design and details for its planned electric scooter. Dubbed the Vespa Elettrica (which is simply Italian for “electric Vespa”), the concept for this new, stylish scooter was previously announced at last year’s EICMA.
“Vespa Elettrica is not just an electric scooter, it is Vespa Elettrica,” according to a Piaggio press statement that accompanied the launch. The company added that it’s “a contemporary work of art with a technological heart.”
