UK start-up launching high speed electric scooter

Zapp i300 features two removable battery pack solution


Zapp is a new start-up for electric scooters from Great Britain. Their first product is the i300, a stylish electric scooter that packs a lot of power. It is light and fast but such performance comes at a price.

The electric scooter of British Zapp is designed with style-conscious urban dwellers in mind. The acceleration brings it near small motorcycle territory. With a torque of 587 Nm the 14 kW strong Zapp i300 accelerates from 0 to 48 kph within 2.35 seconds, according to the manufacturer.

The top speed is electronically limited but still reaches an impressive 96 kph (60 mph). The payoff is however a range of no more than 60 kilometres. But the electric scooter features two battery packs each rated at 1.25 kWh for a combined 2.5 kWh of capacity. Both are removable to allow for remote charging which should be fairly easy as they weigh just 5 kilos each.

Power and design have their price. The little Zapp i300 starts at 6,300 euros, which is the same level as Piaggio’s upcoming electric Vespa. Zapp is taking pre-orders from UK, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands as you read. The first deliveries of the electric scooter are promised for spring 2019.,

    Love how light the battery pack is. Will make it much easier to put it in your bag and charge it at the office.
