Piaggio has an success story on its hands in the of the MP3 three-wheeled scooter. Well, that a slightly qualified as the recently released hybrid of the leaning machine hasn’t sold up to expectations. Actually, has sold, um, just about of them.

In order to get a few more scooters out on the roadways of the world, has just released a new version of its MP3 that gets an enlarged single cylinder powerplant. to the Italian scooter giant, the MP3 300ie will be able to 141 miles per gallon (matching the 125cc hybrid) while carbon emissions in half.

more, Piaggio claims the MP3 Hybrid 300ie is actually more muscular than you imagine, as the electric motor can a 30-percent power boost max power is needed. Alternatively, the can travel up to 12 miles using only. There is also a gear powered by the electric

At this point, the bike is available in Europe for an asking of 7,999 Euros. No special is required to ride the scooter in which we imagine will its appeal a great deal. We can hope that Piaggio release the MP3 Hybrid 300ie in the States, as it’s already III emissions compliant.



Piaggio MP3 300ie

A year after the of the world’s first hybrid Piaggio confirms its technological by presenting the 300 cc version of the Mp3 Hybrid, the technologically advanced scooter in the which combines the strengths of a low impact conventional internal engine and a zero emissions motor.

Piaggio Mp3 Hybrid has given a bigger engine and performance, to offer even fun and rider enjoyment without out on any of the advantages of the revolutionary Plug-In technology, which can reduce consumption and CO2 emissions by over Introducing the Mp3 Hybrid 300ie, the and only scooter combining the of an electric motor with an 300cc petrol engine, pickup and acceleration comparable to a petrol scooter (figures considering 65% use in Hybrid Power and 35% use in electric mode).

A genuine technological marvel, the Mp3 300ie uses a sophisticated system to manage throttle for the internal combustion engine and is, to the only vehicle in the entire sector to use lithium ion batteries with Plug-In technology, for directly from the mains.

MP3 Hybrid: uncompromised ecology and

Mp3 Hybrid 300ie is powered by the hybrid drive system by the Piaggio Group — the of its kind in the two-wheeled segment combining the advantages of a petrol with the benefits of Plug-In The new 300ie version of the powertrain performance in terms of acceleration and comparable to a conventional petrol-engined scooter, making it the ideal for medium to long range

Mp3 Hybrid 300ie is fun and surefooted on roads, where the superior of the Piaggio Mp3 come to the fore, but can freely circulate in restricted zones accessible to electric only: two scooters in one, for simple, economical and fun mobility.

Two in one for maximum eco-compatibility

Piaggio Mp3 300ie was designed and developed for energy efficiency and eco-compatibility in urban and extraurban usage: the in which air quality and environmental are more critical than else.

Research conducted among GT users in European metropolitan revealed that they on average approximately 30,000 in 5 years, or 6,000 Km per year, translates to 30 Km per day over an estimated 200 of usage throughout the year.

On the of these figures, the innovative ion batteries powering the electric of the Mp3 Hybrid have been to offer sufficient range for the full day’s usage of a of the same class, even in Power mode, which uncompromised performance. A full of the battery pack, on the other allows access to restricted zones in zero emissions electric mode, with an of up to 20 kilometres.

Hybrid Charge uses part of the energy by the petrol engine together energy recovered during and braking to recharge the battery.

The of the Mp3 Hybrid over a conventional vehicle are clear: if a longer journey is necessary, the 278cc engine offers petrol performance and crucially the extended of an internal combustion engine. should charging from the not be possible, the hybrid Piaggio can run in Hybrid Charge mode, the added advantage of being to recharge the batteries using of the energy produced by the petrol and energy recovered during and braking.

Energy recovery braking and deceleration is always on the Mp3 Hybrid, whatever the riding selected.

It’s almost as if designers had created two different in one in the Mp3 Hybrid, which coexist in synergy: one of which electric, for ecology, the other petrol-powered, the peace of mind of extended should your journey your farther than

In terms of ecological performance or efficiency and low emissions according to the EU procedure, the Mp3 Hybrid 300ie CO2 emissions of just 65g/Km in the 2.2 cycle. In a typical urban however, with two thirds in Hybrid Power mode and one in pure electric mode, CO2 drop to 40 g/Km, while efficiency climbs up to a remarkable 60 — an incredible result for a with performance on a par with a 400 cc

Two engines in one for maximum efficiency in all

Piaggio Mp3 Hybrid uses a hybrid drive system in the two powerplants — an electric and an internal combustion engine are integrated to work in concert and power to the wheel simultaneously in an synergy.

The internal combustion is a state of the art 278cc four-… Euro3 unit, offering performance, low emissions and extended An automatic transmission, electric and the innovative Ride-By-Wire system throttle system ensure performance and twist-and-go usability in the city and on the open road.

In Power mode, during starts or whenever the rider for particularly brisk acceleration, the between the two powerplants of the Piaggio Mp3 300ie means that the motor supplements the power of the unit to provide a boost in of up to 30% compared with a conventional with a similarly sized combustion engine: this to more immediate and responsive during the first few metres which is precisely where it is needed in city use.

In Charge mode, as well as the scooter its impressive performance, it runs, the internal combustion also recharges the batteries to power the electric heart of the

In response to the signals received the Ride by Wire throttle the on board electronics (VMS Management System) determines in relation to the riding mode — how much power to from the petrol engine and how from the electric motor to both performance and consumption.

This synergy between the two achieved through integrated management, not only offers performance but also reduces consumption — the Piaggio Mp3 300 can return up to 60 Km/l, compared an average of 30 Km/l for petrol with similar sized — and CO2 emissions as low as 40 g/Km, is substantially lower than the of 90 g/Km for a conventional internal engined scooter (figures for the Mp3 calculated considering 65% use in Hybrid mode and 35% use in electric mode).

But the Mp3 300ie is not just a sophisticated drive vehicle: simply the button on the handlebar to disengage the engine and turn the Mp3 Hybrid a totally ecological scooter, a emissions vehicle that can freely in areas restricted to combustion engines.

By pressing the again, the petrol engine back to life and resumes its as the vehicle’s primary powerplant, if Hybrid Charge mode is charge the batteries while in areas open to normal traffic.

The rider can switch the full electric and hybrid even while on the move.

The motor also offers the Mp3 Hybrid an ultra-quiet reverse which is handy for parking and for out of tight spaces.

In spite of its extremely avant-garde technology, Mp3 Hybrid is still incredibly easy and to use. In addition to the normal a special selector also the rider choose from operating modes for the vehicle: two modes — Hybrid and Hybrid Charge — and two modes (including reverse).

The hybrid modes (Hybrid for maximum performance and Hybrid for maximised battery charge) been conceived to allow the to manage and optimise performance, and battery charge capacity.

In electric mode, the petrol of the Mp3 Hybrid is completely disengaged, it into a silent, zero electric vehicle.

The Piaggio Mp3 300ie offers all same in terms of safety and rider as the rest of the Mp3 family. This impeccable road holding, and stability in all road conditions to the two front wheels and the exclusive front suspension layout.

As all the other models in the Mp3 range, the Mp3 Hybrid 300ie also an electronic front suspension system, which allows the to stop the vehicle without to put the feet down, and park using the stand.

While the same distinctive style and of the Mp3 range, the Piaggio Mp3 Hybrid, is the first hybrid vehicle to Plug-In mains charging with innovative lithium ion which with their energy density and reliability better performance, greater and superior durability than any technology in use today. The battery with integrated control is hidden away in the compartment the saddle, which still has room to accommodate a helmet and objects. Inside the compartment is even a practical 12V power for charging electronic devices.

An integrated into the dashboard the rider keep a constant eye on the charge level. The vehicle is easily and simply from the using a standard power plugged into the relative either at home or at a public station, with the ignition off. The full charge takes approximately three although 85% charge is achieved in two hours.

Both the sophisticated lithium ion and the conventional service battery are simultaneously during the process.
