Husqvarna is taking the challenge of electro-mobility seriously with the unveiling of its next batch of electric two-wheelers following last month's E-Pilen concept.
Husqvarna says the Vektorr Concept is the first electric scooter ever produced by the company and is aimed squarely at the urban commuter. The target audience is stated as a rider who wants something that is not only compact and functional but also a stylish vehicle to boot that will fit in with a busy lifestyle.
Styled and ridden like a conventional moped-class scooter, the Vektorr Concept will deliver a top speed of 45 km/h and offer a range of up to 95 km.
The Vektorr shares styling cues with the E-Pilen as well as Husqvarna’s yet to be released Norden 901 concept with a large circular headlight, smooth bodywork and the firm’s signature colour combination of white, black and fluorescent yellow.
In addition to the Vektorr and E-Pilen, Husqvarna has also shown off its Bltz stand up e-scooter which aims to become a personal option similar to the Lime-style scooters we see dumped on side streets in our major centres.
Similar to other stand up scooters on the market, Husqvarna’s Bltz has a top speed of 20 km/h with propulsion provided by a 0.5kW electric motor, lighting provided by an LED and an overall simple design.
Both concepts are currently being displayed at the PIERER Mobility AG special exhibition in the KTM Motohall in Mattighofen, Austria.
Husqvarna says that the development of its E-Mobility range is well-advanced, with the company now actively searching for qualified dealers in large metropolitan areas in Europe, focusing on Spain, France, Italy and Germany.
No word on if or when these might show up in the New Zealand market, but we can definitely see a place for the Vektorr and Bltz here.
