Vespa's hybrid scooter

Two wheels is the best way to get around town, and if you can’t face using your own power a scooter is the next best thing. Now Vespa, the quintessential scooter manufacturer, has gone one better with plug in hybrid scooters in development. The space under the lift up seat, where the rider traditionally stores their helmet, has been filled with batteries. A luggage pod has been fitted to make up for this.

Now, if they could build solar panels into the luggage pod and get it to run on bio-ethanol it would be super cool.

Fully electrical scooters can be bought from EVT.
