The Piaggio Group, which was founded in 1884, is Europe’s largest scooter and motorbike manufacturer, as well as one of the industry’s global leaders. The Piaggio Group is led by Roberto Colaninno, who serves as Chairman and CEO, and Matteo Colaninno, who serves as Deputy Chairman.
The Group also includes four research and development centres: one in Pontedera, one in Noale, where the Aprilia Racing Team is based, the Piaggio Group Advanced Design Center in Pasadena, California, and Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF) in Boston.
The Piaggio Museum is also located in Pontedera, and its reconstruction has boosted the annual average number of visitors to almost 60,000. The Moto Guzzi Museum in Mandello showcases the principal vehicles made by Moto Guzzi since its debut model, which are considered two-wheeler landmarks by fans.
Piaggio Vehicles Pvt Ltd (PVPL) has launched its FX electric vehicle series (fixed battery) in both the cargo and passenger markets. The Ape’ EXtra FX, according to the manufacturer, is the most powerful electric cargo in the segment, with a 9.5kW power output.
The Ape ECity FX passenger segment vehicle is designed to provide comfortable journeys for a greater number of trips. Blue vision headlamps, automatic gearbox, hill hold aid, regenerative braking, dual tone seats, distinctive body colours and graphics, multi-information instrument cluster, boost mode, and other features are all standard on both vehicles.
Subsidy for Fame II, Price and Booking
FAME II funding is available for the Ape Electrik FX series. Ape E-Xtra FX (freight three-wheeler) is now available at an introductory ex-showroom price of Rs 3,12,137, while Ape E-City FX (passenger electric rickshaw) is now available at an ex-showroom price of Rs 2,83,878 after Fame II subsidy.
The Piaggio Ape’ Electrik FX series was created to provide customers with one-of-a-kind solutions for specialised applications. Zero emissions, low NVH, greater drive and ride comfort are just a few of the selling advantages.
Warranty on the Piaggio Ape’ Electrik FX range
The Piaggio Ape’ Electrik FX electric vehicle range consists of fixed battery electric three-wheelers that can be charged at home or at work. Advanced Lithium-Ion Smart batteries provide the necessary power. The products are made to make last-mile mobility easier. It comes with a full metal body and a cargo deck that is 6 feet long. Used as a delivery van, garbage collector, and other custom applications are just a few examples.
The operating cost is less than 50 paise, implying a minimal cost of operation. Customer confidence will be boosted through unique service solutions. As an inaugural offer, the company is offering a three-year/1-lakh-kilometer “Super warranty” and a three-year “Free Maintenance” package. The Piaggio I-Connect telematics solution allows you to track your vehicle’s statistics in real time.

A 4.3-inch TFT dash on the Piaggio Vespa Elettrica may be connected to your phone. The system provides a wealth of information and interactive options, including incoming call and message notifications, as well as speed, remaining range, and battery capacity. A joystick on the right handlebar can be used to control the multimedia system, and when using a headset, the rider can also utilise voice commands to control the phone.

The One, like most electric scooters, has a long list of features, including keyless control, USB charging, two ride modes, and LED illumination. A completely digital colour instrument cluster serves as the interaction between the scooter and the rider.
The One uses single-sided trailing-link front suspension, similar to its Vespa brothers. At the back, a double-sided (and really attractive) swingarm is hung on dual shock absorbers, with disc brakes on both ends providing stopping force.
Piaggio’s future plans
Although the electric One platform is currently limited to a single electric scooter, Piaggio claims that it will eventually expand to include everything from an electric moped to an electric motorcycle. The battery packs on all of the models are planned to be swappable, and the motor output levels will vary. We anticipate a power output of less than 10kW, possibly even less than 5kW, given the scooter’s urban usage.
In terms of India, it’s unlikely that the One would be seen in showrooms. When the Vespa Elettrica was unveiled at the Auto Expo, Diego Graffi, the president of Piaggio’s Indian operations, mentioned that an other Piaggio electric scooter will be headed our way soon, but we doubt it’ll be branded Piaggio. So, while an Aprilia or Vespa electric scooter may appear on our roads in the not-too-distant future, we suspect the One will.
