Electric Husqvarna Vektorr scooter concept breaks cover 

The Husqvarna Vektorr electric scooter concept breaks cover to give a huge clue as to what we can expect from Huskie's burgeoning green motorcycle range

After teasing what will become its first electric motorcycle - the E-Pilen - last month, the wraps have now come off a concept version of the second model in Husqvarna’s zero exhaust emissions double act, the Vektorr scooter.

Talk of a Husqvarna scooter has been doing the rounds for around twelve months, ever since a sketch of the purported electric-powered model turned up in parent company KTM’s internal communications. 

Since then not a lot has been said of the erstwhile unnamed model, which would have both heralded Husqvarna’s first move into both the e-mobility and scooter divisions. Instead, attention has been lavished on the 11kW motorcycle E-Pilen confirmed towards the end of 2020 and teased in shadowy shots in April. 

 

Now it is the turn of what has been christened the Vektorr to make its bow and this time someone has flicked the light switch so we can get a good look at what we can expect. 

The official communication says it is a concept but given how faithful it is to last year’s sketch, we predict this is largely what the final production model will look like.

Questions about the spelling aside, the Vektorr is arguably exactly what you would expect a Husqvarna scooter to look like, combining many of the design traits that can be seen on its larger models, while following the trend of other e-scooters with its bulbous rear and bluff front-end. If you squint, it is a more angular take on the Vespa silhouette.

Under the skin is a 4kW electric motor boasting 28mph and a range of up to 59 miles, while underpinnings are almost certain to be shared with the Bajaj Chetak that is already on sale in India. 

It will also come with swappable battery capabilities that will make the most of an agreement between KTM, Honda, Piaggio and Yamaha to standardise the technology to ensure they can be used more widely.

When will the Husqvarna Vektorr electric scooter go on sale?

While the Vektorr is expected to be a global model, it is set to be a driving force behind Husqvarna’s expansion in Asia, while there is talk it could also spawn a KTM version. Meanwhile, the E-Pilen has European urban riders in mind.

This week we reported a leaked investor document confirmed the Husqvarna Vektorr is likely to go on sale in 2022, together with the E-Pilen, which we can only assume is also close to being unveiled in concept form.
