The Vectrix saga is not over: there is a new company in Europe selling Vectrix VX-1 and VX-2 in Europe.
We have written several stories about Vectrix over the past year, and the last one was about GOVECS taking over Vectrix’ Polish factory:
It now seems that a new Polish firm, MP Tech, bought the remaining Vectrix scooters and parts from GOVECS. MP Tech has also bought the equipment and parts left in the US factory. For now, it looks like the scooters for sale are the ones that were left over in the two factories, with newly developed batteries.
Nevertheless, MP Tech has already found a importer in France, where Vectrix was very popular. The French firm Goelectrix already got its first 9 scooters, and claims to have five French dealer/distributors. It also started a new web site:
On the site, it advertises the VX-1, a 125cc-equivalent electric scooter, and the VX-2, a 50cc-equivalent one.
The VX-2 is being advertised as having a 4 kW motor, and as being available with a 2 kWh or 3 kWh lithium battery, for a range of 50 km (31 miles) or 90 km (56 miles). Prices start at €4,990 ($5,640), with €5,750 ($6,500) for the 3 kWh version.
