Vespa, the worlds most popular scooter brand has finally unveiled an electric powered scooter.
The popular Italian vehicle has been running around the roads of the world for decades on fossil fuels since the very beginning.
But given the rise of alternate energy and fuel, Vespa has finally unveiled an electric powered scooter called the Vespa Elettrica.
The announcement came ahead of the Esposizione Internatzionale Ciclo e Motociclo (EICMA) and was made by Piaggio, the parent company of Vespa.
Piaggio claims that the scooter will have the same style and characteristics of the classic Vespa that people have grown to love. The only thing that is going to change is that it will now have an eco friendly engine that will be cheaper to run.
The company also added:
The Vespa Elettrica 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 Elettrica will be available to purchase sometime in the second quarter of 2017. No price range has been announced by the company but experts believe it will cost around $10,000.
