We have reported on the Vectrix maxi-scooter before, and here is a rather in-depth review of the all-electric scooter. The site compares the scooter with regular gas-powered scooters in the 250-400cc range. It is also reported on the site that the manufacturer is working on a three-wheeled version similar to the Piaggio MP3 that is available in Europe and is expected in the U.S. early next year. They are also planning a hybrid version with a fuel cell to power the batteries which will extend the range to 155 miles, or 250 kilometers.
Some details if you are merely interested in specifications:
- Two hours recharge time nets you about 62 miles, or 100 kilometers
- 27hp brushless motor allows a top speed of 62 mph, or 100 kph
- 125 volt battery pack capable of 3.7 kW/h
- Price? 11,000 euros, or $14,439.70 at current exchange rates
Their verdict: pricey but well done.
