  • Piaggio is planning an EV for the Indian automobile market.
  • The first EV from Piaggio could become a reality anytime early next year.
  • The EV could either be a Vespa or an Aprilia.

Piaggio is keen on bringing an electric vehicle revolution in India that could change the way India rides on its roads. One can expect a glut of electric vehicles, including two-wheelers on the Indian streets in the future. Piaggio is evaluating the ideal EV for the Indian market. It could either be a Vespa or an Aprilia.

The Indian automobile market has specific demands. The requirements of the Indian market are different from that of the Europeans. The Elettrica with international specifications uses a 4kW electric motor with a battery that can ensure a range of 100km on a single charge. The charging time is around four hours for a full charge. The existing electric two-wheeler market comprising scooters like the Ather 450X and the Bajaj Chetak has similar specifications.

The localised content on the electric vehicle plays a critical role in determining the pricing of the vehicle. The Elettrica might be an ideal vehicle for the European market, but it will require many changes to its design and specifications to cater to the Indian market. Piaggio might have to share many components from its existing models to get the pricing right.

Piaggio could launch its electric scooter somewhere early next year.
