GizmoChina’s Report According to the report, Piaggio unveiled its new electric scooter at the Beijing Motor Show. Piaggio One has been introduced. The new electric scooter has been launched in a total of three models – One, One+ and One Active. There is a difference in battery capacity and range of these three. The company has tried to keep its design simple to reach out to the rural and middle-class people. Its performance has also been limited to keep the price low. The report claims that the new Piaggio ONE series will initially be made available in China with a starting price of 17,800 Yuan (approximately Rs 2,04,000).
The new Piaggio One comes with a 1.2 kW electric motor, which is capable of achieving a top-speed of 45 kilometers per hour (km/h). The new electric scooter comes with a 48V and 25Ah unit battery with a total capacity of 1,200 Wh. Thanks to this battery, the scooter can run 55 km in a single charge. At the same time, talking about Piaggio One+, the electric motor in it also helps it to catch a speed of 45 kilometers per hour. However, the battery capacity is 2,300 Wh, thanks to which it can deliver a range of 100 km on a single charge.
Talking about the high-end model One Active, it is powered by a 2 kW motor, which helps it to accelerate to 60 kmph. The battery has the same 2,300 Wh capacity as the One+, but with a range of 83 kms. These are all removable batteries and the company claims that the battery of these three models can be fully charged in about 6 hours.
