Milan, 14 November 2018 – The wait is over. All over Europe, the first Vespa Elettrica scooters to be booked online are being delivered. One of the very first customers, Roberto Silva Coronel, has just picked up his Vespa Elettrica from the Motoplex City Lounge, the Piaggio Group store in central Milan, which he chose as his delivery point during the online booking procedure, which began in early October on the Vespa Elettrica website: elettrica.vespa.com.
Roberto Silva Coronel tells us: "As a boy, I had a PK 50 and I decided a while ago that I wanted to go back to the Vespa. In the last few months before delivery, I’ve been fascinated by the Vespa Elettrica with its fully-featured technology package, and the opportunity to ride a vehicle that is so far ahead of its competitors. This two-wheeler makes innovation its distinguishing characteristic, which, coupled with reliability, means it’s an essential partner in everyday life.
As part of my job (Roberto is founder and CEO of MMM Group, an agency active in the digital sector, ed.) I’m always exploring new paths, trying out innovative technologies and new solutions, often at first hand; I immediately realised that the Vespa Elettrica would be perfect to accompany me on my frequent trips across the city for work. Besides being the ideal choice in an urban environment, it combines all the charm and design of the Vespa with an increasingly strong focus on the environment, for an all-round sustainable vision I fully embrace: in fact, in our offices, which have just been restructured, we’ve decided to use clean energy as far as possible and have installed an impressive photovoltaic system. So from this point of view, with the Vespa Elettrica, we’ve closed the circle. Now I simply have to put it to the test…"
