That’s right, a new hybrid 3-wheeled scooter from Piaggio reckons it can eke out 170 miles (nearly 275 kms from less than 4 litres of fuel–or 70+ kms per litre). EcoGeek has the news:
Scooters are fuel efficient all on their own, so when you add in an advanced regenerative and plug-in hybrid electric system, you should expect some serious results. And that’s what we’re seeing. Based on the way these scooters are driven, they can achieve up to 170 miles per gallon of gasoline. Because the electric motors can be programmed to produce various amounts of torque, the new hybrid scooter system (HyS) from Piaggio can also be molded to individual preferences.
