The unexpected hybrid between a Segway and a Vespa

Segway Vespa

Four Spaniards worked together to answer a question nobody ever asked: how about making a Segway-like vehicle with the look of a classic Italian scooter? They are Jesús Bel Vilarnau and his brother Carles Bel Domènech, David “Chiqui” López Díaz and Sergi Martínez “Piyuli” Andreu. The fruit of their work is pictured above, a 112 pounds battery-electric vehicle.

Handlebar is height-adjustable, and the two 1-kW in-wheel motors allow it to reach a top speed of 13 mph, while range is 18 miles. Hand-built in Barcelona, this Segway-Vespa is available for €3,444 ($4,715). It’s possible to buy it online in Spain through this website, and it could make a nice Christmas present.
