I haven't seen this posted elsewhere so thought I'd share. I came across a new Vectrix site via a Google search advertising what looks to be the existing VX-1 along with the VX-2 and VT-1 (no sign of the VX-3) but with newer battery packs. I thought with the auctioned off parts from the original Vectrix a few years ago meant that us owners could have a decent spares parts supply, but no further sales of new fully assembled units were available.
The range and battery pack figures for these look impressive against the original Ni-MH and even the later Li-ion models. I think the original model claimed 68 miles at a constant 25mph, with a supposed real world range of 30-50 miles. The owners manual I have differs somewhat in that at a constant 60mph range is reduced to 20 miles - and that's with a new battery pack!
5.3kWh - 66mi
8kWh - 100mi
10kWh - 131mi
13kWh - 164mi
16kWh - 193mi
No idea on pricing or availability but I think keeping the Vectrix brand alive is definitely a good thing.
The VX-1 ranges from €8,250.00 – €13,284.00
The VX-2 ranges from €4,900.00 – €5,880.00
The VT-1 isn't due to be released until 2018
It looks like vectrixparts.com (Vectrix sp. z o.o.) are still selling Vectrix scooters and spares, but under another name (vectrix-scooters.com).
Matteo needs to update the Polish Wikipedia entry for Vectrix which currently states, "Vectrix - the name of no longer existing, plant and brand of scooters produced by them".
The English Wikipedia entry for Vectrix is also in need of an update.
