Elettrica has arrived

Sticking to the much-needed zero-emissions trend, Vespa has joined the electric vehicle club with their Vespa Elettrica. This zippy little scooter boasts a 4Kw electric motor with a range of 100Km on a single charge. Vespa Melrose Arch launched the all-new all-electric Elettrica on 6 April 2019 to much applause. Here’s what the little eco-monster is all about.

Riding the Elettrica is even easier and more instinctive than riding any other Vespa. All the rider needs to do is select the power mode (Full or Eco) and the intensity of the energy recovery and consequent braking effect, when decelerating (Stage 1 or 2). At the touch of the power mode switch even reverse can be selected (it is simple with electric motors), for even easier handling in parking.

Vespa’s Elettrica talks to the rider through the TFT display at the centre of the handlebars, and a very powerful electronics suits provides ample connectivity through your smartphone via Bluetooth.
