WE first saw it as a concept last year but now Vespa’s electric scooter is a production model, set to go on sale throughout the world in 2018.

The Vespa Elettrica offers better performance than a 50cc scooter, according to the Italian firm, has a guaranteed range of 62 miles and fully charges in four hours from a domestic wall socket or public charging station.

It promises continuous power of 2kw (2.7hp) and a peak of 4kw (5.4hp) and operates in complete silence, Piaggio says.

An additional ‘X’ version features a generator alongside the electric motor, doubling the claimed range.  

The Vespa Elettrica also offers smartphone connectivity, managed via a TFT dash.

It comes in a ‘chrome grey finish with metallic reflections’ and with choice of seven different detailing colours, including the blue option picture.
