Posted by The Verge on Sunday, February 26, 2019 18:59:57 Tesla announced two new electric scouters at the New York Auto Show.
The first is the Viro, a 125cc scooty with 1.1 kW of electric motor.
The second is the Vespa, a electric scooto with a 10,001 mile range and a price tag of $1,800.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the two models will go on sale later this year.
The company also announced it will be selling its first electric motorcycle at the show.
“The Vespa is going to be a very good product, but it is not a mass market product,” Musk said.
“We will be making it for people who want a very nice scooter with a nice amount of power, but we won’t be making a mass product.”
The company has been selling the Vespas for a few months now.
The Vespa has a range of 10,100 miles on a single charge and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just over 4 seconds.
Tesla’s Viro comes with a 1,848-volt battery pack.
It has a top speed of 155 mph and is available with the 1,700 horsepower motor and a 10-speed transmission.
The motor is said to have a torque of 880 lb-ft and a top-speed of 190 mph.
Both the Vesps and the Vireos will be powered by an 8-volt electrical system.
Tesla is offering the Vesppa with a 20-inch wheelbase and the Vespo with a 23-inch, which is the standard for electric scotch scooters.
Both scooters have an engine that can drive a 6-volt motor that can run a 2.4-liter battery pack, and they both have electric seats.
The Tesla Viro will be available in 2018 and the Tesla Vespa in 2019.
