The Piaggio ONE also delivers the best content of Piaggio scooters: quality, reliability, and a robust chassis for maximum riding pleasure and guaranteed safety and enjoyment. It is targeted to the market dedicated to today’s young people who choose an agile means of getting around the city, avoiding traffic jams, and helping to protect the environment. The e-scooter promises to be so easy and such fun to ride that youngsters will fall in love with two-wheelers as the coolest way to commute.

Compared to the softer and rounder lines of the older sister Vespa electric, the Piaggio ONE has more decisive and squared lines, as demonstrated by the angular front panel. The motor seems to be integrated into the rear wheel, while the battery is placed in the horizontal plane of the large footrest.

The ONE wants to be a user-friendly two-wheeler to improve and simplify daily commuting in the city. Also, for this reason, the new e-scooter is very easy to manage on the road, with a comfortable riding position, a low seat, a flat, roomy footplate, plus practical and robust pull-out footpegs for the passenger. The Piaggio ONE is also the only e-scooter in its category to provide a capacious compartment below the seat.

Other technological features include a digital color instrument panel with a sensor to adapt the background and luminosity to ambient conditions, full LED lights, a keyless start system, two motor maps. As a keyless vehicle, the Piaggio ONE uses a remote start system.

The parent company has not declared further data, but the official press release says the Piaggio ONE will be available in several versions offering different powers (moped and motorcycle) and different ranges, all powered by an electric motor whose lithium-ion batteries can be easily extracted for recharging at home or in the office.
