The future is well progress is progressing. 3 wheeled Hybrid. How does sound to you?

There has plenty of work done on electric scooters, while the world seems focussed on technology. Well Piaggio the opportunity of the EICMA show in to reveal a production ready scooter. Now we all know about the the technology is now proven and if you have one you will know how well it

The Hybrid takes this modern looking scooter to the level. According to Piaggio’s this Parallel Hybrid do around 141MPG. I will judgement of this figure it can be tested. It isn’t completely though as the new MP3’s charging and system seems to run a well combination of combustion and electric

The idea of the Parallel Hybrid is the Petrol engine and the Electrics are both mechanically and electronically and supply power either or individually. So both power can drive the MP3 under heavy normally the petrol engine, by the electric motor, or you can switch the engine off (via a handlebar for use within restricted, inner areas, short commutes and the

This combination means is plenty of range available, when you take into that the petrol engine the batteries. Further still is this incredible device. a plug which is attached via a to the bike. this plug is inserted into your wall socket and will the batteries in just 3 hours. means that if you have a commute you can keep your use to zero and then use the combined for longer or higher speed

It would appear that has been somewhat reduced to the batteries although Piaggio us there is still room for a I suspect it will be the European open face device. so this would appear to be a damn useful device if it is as good as the press release it is.

Piaggio’s Hybrid prototype are on the MP3 model, the revolutionary three-wheeler The Hybrid Scooter is an environment-friendly with low running costs.

has come to symbolise urban they’re the ideal way to zip through town traffic and fun to use on weekend

In recent years, however, towns have tackled the to reduce pollution by creating an number of restricted traffic where even scooters are entry. Manufacturers have with zero-emissions electric for unrestricted travel.

Thermal and engines both have and disadvantages that are often Combustion engines offer range, power and ‘lunge’, but out exhaust gas, although the Euro 3 norm place limits on these. Electric are zero-emission and offer very pick-up from a stopped but the batteries have low range and speed.

With the Piaggio MP3 riders no longer have to between performance and environment or between a vehicle to commute in and one for longer trips.

MP3 Hybrid is equipped with the hybrid scooter engine a marked evolution as regards transport that combines the of gasoline and electric engines.

The MP3 Hybrid does not merely put two types on a single vehicle. The two are part of a sophisticated system combines combustion engine and electric motor pick-up. hybrid scooter can go into traffic zones and travel out of

It’s two scooters in one — practical, fun all-round transport.

Two engines in one

MP3 Hybrid is a “parallel” hybrid in a combustion engine and an electric are mechanically and electronically linked and supply power to the wheel.

In linked gas/electric engine, the engine behaves like a catalysed four-… engine excellent performance and distance on the one hand and low emissions and fuel on the other. The automatic gearbox, ignition and the innovative Ride-By-Wire provide the usual zip and ease of use in as well as out-of-town trips. The gas offers sparkling performance in running, charging the electric all the while.

And, whenever the rider to accelerate particularly fast — starting from a stopped for example — the electric motor the engine, supplying about 85% performances that gives the snappier, more efficient over the first few metres, it is really needed in town

In-built electronic management the two engines to offer not only acceleration but also about a in fuel consumption (up to 60 km/l) and in CO2 only 40 g/km (using 65% the modes and 35% the electric one).

The Hybrid is not your average engine: other scooters may but the Piaggio MP3 Hybrid keeps quick and silent, because it can work in electric-only.

The rider turns a handlebar switch to down the combustion engine and the Piaggio Hybrid into a environment-friendly scooter, a zero-emissions that can go into any area to other types of traffic. turn of the switch and the thermal turns itself on and goes to being the main engine, the battery as it travels through open to normal traffic.

The scooter’s range can be optimised in the by charging the battery from an source using the battery This reduces running electricity being cheaper gasoline.

Technology at the turn of a

The Piaggio MP3 Hybrid uses innovative, avant-garde technical but remains incredibly easy and to use.

The rider uses all the controls (accelerator, brakes and handlebar commands) as well as a switch to choose one of the different modes: two hybrid and two electric-only included).

Hybrid manages output from the two engines, and electric, using a ride-by-wire system: the electronic management interprets the rider’s request for torque and selects the assist based on the state of the system the level of battery charge). deceleration and braking, the control recovers and accumulates power is lost on normal vehicles in the

The three hybrid modes are to optimize performances, consumption and charge.

In electric-only mode, the Hybrid shuts down the engine and turns into a zero-emission electric vehicle.

Ride-by-wire technology not only the control system to optimally the combined power output of the two but also ‘forces’ the thermal to work when it can be most thereby reducing specific with obvious advantages in of lower consumption and emissions.

All technology is neatly tucked Piaggio MP3 Hybrid looks any standard MP3.

The traction are hidden in the under-seat storage which is sufficiently large to hold a helmet.

There is a charge indicator on the dashboard. The can be recharged from an electricity by inserting a normal cable the plug provided for this Charging time is about hour.
