Piaggio working on an electric Vespa
Vespa is making an electric version of its iconic scooter. Keeping with the times, Piaggio has come up with this concept which it intends to bring it into production by late 2017. Considering that it is Vespa and an EV , should definitely be priced little higher. Not sure if it would make it to Indian shores though.

This will be the first electric scooter from Vespa. Although no technical information is known, the press release tells that the Electric Vespa scooter will retain all its USPs
It will be a good offering IMO for India if at all it decides to bring it here...with a reasonable price tag of course
