Italian motorcycle manufacturer Piaggio finally revealed its electric Vespa, which was initially announced in 2016. The Vespa Elettrica and the Elettrica X are Piaggio's contribution to freeing up cities from greenhouse gas and noise pollution.
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.”
