Lambretta has had the global premiere of its Elettra, its vision for electric mobility on two wheels, at EICMA 2023 in Milan.

The Elettra, which blends original Lambretta design with high-performance electric propulsion, has a steel frame and chassis, 12-inch wheels and a classic ‘pull-wheel’ double-shock front suspension. The rear suspension is completely redesigned with a shock-absorbing unit positioned horizontally above the engine, connected with an arm to the aluminium swingarm.

Key design highlights are the handlebar hiding the wooden ‘retractable’ brake levers as is the ‘hooked’ headlamp, and digital instrumentation. The entire rear body can be automatically lifted at the touch of a remote control. This gives practical access to the compartment that houses the battery. The body itself includes a helmet compartment.

The 135kg Lambretta Elettra, which has continuous and peak power of 4kW and 11 kW respectively, and a torque of 258 Nm, has a maximum speed of approximately 110kph. This performance is thanks to its Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) capable of ensuring great torque, the best weight/power ratio, high efficiency and reliability. The e-scooter has three different modes (Eco, Ride and Sport). Range varies from 130km (at a constant speed of 40kph) up to over 60km (at a constant speed of 80kph).

The charging time of the battery (lithium, 4.6 kWh) is respectively approximately 5h30' with a 220V home system and reduced to approximately 35 minutes with a ‘fast charge’ in a public place (up to 80%).
