Vectrix: Simply electric!


If an F1 world champ like Damon Hill rides the Vectrix, the little electric scooter should be all right for the rest of us. Take a look at the new Vectrix video below...

The Vectrix electric scooter is powered by a motor that produces 21kW and 65Nm of torque. The nifty little ZEV (zero emissions vehicle) can accelerate from zero to 80km/h in 6.8 seconds and can travel 110km on one full charge. Top speed is 100km/h. The motor is fed by a Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery that can be fully charged in five hours. Battery life is 80,000km, after which it needs to be replaced with a new unit.

The Vectrix costs US$11,000. More details on the official website here
