Default 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.

The Italian company Piaggio on Tuesday unveiled the Vespa Elettrica concept at the EICMA2016. It says that the production and sales is planned for the second half of 2017.
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

Below, I’m quoting the press release from their website
Quote:
The mobility of the future will be unveiled at Eicma 2016.
Introducing the Vespa Elettrica project, the new mobility solution according to the most elegant and beloved two-wheeled brand in the world that takes a step into the future in complete consistency with the values that have accompanied its history.
The Vespa Elettrica project confirms the Piaggio Group's commitment, not only to people mobility, but to a desire to change the way in which people move.
Because of the excellence of this project, the Piaggio Group is assessing the most advanced players in the sector on a global level to develop innovative technological electric motor solutions together. This concept will be translated into the final version of the Vespa Elettrica, for which production and sales are planned for the second half of 2017.
The Electric Vespa will, first and foremost, be a true Vespa, bringing the very latest in electric technology to a vehicle that will retain all the features that have been vital to its success. The style, agility, ease of use and riding pleasure will be the same as the Vespa we have always known, with the addition of technological and innovative connectivity solutions. A perfect mix of excitement, technology and environmental friendliness that only Vespa can create. As it has always done in its first seventy years of history.
Piaggio will also be showcasing the following other vehicles at the Milan show.
