With only two wheels and about 1,000 less horsepower than the thunderous Bugatti Veyron, the first electric vehicle made by the French company comes as a bit of a surprise since it appears to be nothing more than an electric scooter.

Most people may recognize the reputable brand Bugatti as the maker of luxurious sports cars like the Bugatti Veyron with its massive 8.0 liter 16 cylinder engine and a top speed in excess of neck breaking 250 miles per hour. However, the French company has now revealed its very first electric vehicle, which will certainly be significantly slower than the four-wheeled hypercars that Bugatti is usually known for.

The Bugatti branded electric scooter was developed in collaboration with Bytech International and features a 700W electric motor which can propel the two-wheeled EV to a top speed of around 18 miles per hour, but the economy and city drive modes max out at 9 and 12 mph respectively. The scooter is made from magnesium alloy and weighs 35 pounds, while the typical range should be around 22 miles per charge. Neither the price nor the release date of the Bugatti electric scooter have been disclosed yet, but it will eventually be available in the colors black, silver and "Agile Blue".

People who always dreamed of owning a Bugatti may also be excited to hear that the iconic Bugatti badge is not just featured on the front of the scooter, but there is also an LED in the rear which projects the "EB" logo onto the ground while riding. In conclusion, Bugatti's first EV will most likely be more affordable and practical than an all-electric hypercar, which is still expected to be unveiled someday in the future.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
