Husqvarna Vektorr Electric Scooter Concept Unveiled
The Swedish two-wheeler manufacturer, Husqvarna showcase its first electric motorcycle, named the E-Pilen, a few weeks ago. It is true that there have been talks about Husqvarna moving to electrification. The brand is ready with another electric vehicle concept. Now is the time for the electric scooter. Husqvarna has taken the wraps off the Vektorr concept electric scooter. The brand’s first-ever electric scooter will be based on the Bajaj Chetak Electric Scooter.
Husqvarna Vektorr Electric Scooter Speed
The Vektorr Concept is the first electric scooter ever produced by Husqvarna Motorcycles and is aimed squarely at the urban commuter who demands a compact, stylish and effective personal transport solution. The Husqvarna Vektorr concept has a claimed range of up to 95 kilometers on a full charge – the same as the Bajaj Chetak (in Eco mode) – and has a limited top speed of 45 kph.
The company has not revealed any technical specifications at this time. As the Husqvarna Vektorr is likely to copy the Chetak under the skin then it will be powered by the same 3 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, and a motor output ranging from 3.8 kW to 4.1 kW and generating up to 16 Nm of torque. This scooter will be a small personal mobility product.
Husqvarna Motorcycles says it “keeps an open approach to all battery opportunities, aiding the parallel advantage of both fixed and swappable solutions.”
Husqvarna Vektorr Electric Scooter Features
More details of this new Husqvarna Vektorr are expected to be released in the coming months. The production Vektorr is likely to come with a front disc brake but only a combi-brake system instead of ABS, along with ride modes, Bluetooth connectivity, and a reverse mode, just like we’ve seen on the Chetak. It gets a typical Husqvarna round LED headlamp. The white and black color combination, with a lick of bright yellow, is neatly executed.
The company is expected to launch the production variant of the Vektorr in 2022. Europe seems to be the first recipient of this scooter. The Indian market too will get this scooter and we expect it to be priced slightly lower than the Bajaj Chetak. The scooter will be manufactured at Bajaj’s factory, as part of the Bajaj-Pierer Mobility plan.
