Vespa maker Piaggio has just announced its second electric scooter, the Piaggio ONE, ahead of its full unveiling at the Beijing Motor Show in June. Unlike the Vespa Elettrica, the Piaggio ONE has a removable battery and is available in a variety of configurations for different ranges and top speeds.
Piaggio is targeting what it calls the “TikTok Generation”
Several of these features, including a removable battery and keyless start, are missing from the $ 7,500 Vespa Elettrica, Piaggio’s first electric scooter. It’s hard to imagine how the Piaggio ONE will appeal to young people unless the base model is very cheap. Piaggio says you can choose between different top speeds (from “moped to motorcycle”) and between different battery capacities, which will affect the scooter’s range.
Piaggio will take a closer look at its new electric scooter at the Beijing Motor Show (9-11 June). Hopefully, the company will provide pricing and availability at the event.
