Shortly after introducing the Husqvarna E-Pilen electric motorcycle concept in April 2021, Pierer Mobility unveiled the Husqvarna Vektorr Concept in May 2021. The company is displaying both models at the IAA 2021 (Munich). Before Germany, they were on display at the Pierer Mobility special exhibition in the KTM Motohall in Mattighofen, Austria.
The Husqvarna Vektorr Concept is a Husqvarna electric scooter designed primarily for Europe, where the brand is well-established. The company could use the feedback it gathered from viewers at the Pierer Mobility special exhibition in the KTM Motohall (in Mattighofen, Austria) before and at IAA 2021 now in the development of the production version.
Husqvarna electric scooter design & styling
The Husqvarna scooter features a two-tone body paint with the brand’s signature fluorescent green stripes on various elements. Multi-spoke alloy wheels, signature circular, LED headlamps, and sleek body panels are other visual highlights. The vehicle is a personal transport solution for the urban traveller.
Husqvarna electric scooter range & features
The Husqvarna electric scooter should feature an IP67-rated 3 kWh air-cooled battery pack and a frame-mounted motor generating 4 kW and 16 Nm. The initial plan was to offer a 10 kW motor option in this model, but it looks like Husqvarna would stick with a lower output to achieve a competitive price and align with the needs of the urban commuter.
Confirmed Husqvarna Vektorr specs at the moment are a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph) and a range of up to 95 km (59 miles). We reckon that the concept employs a fixed battery system, but future Husqvarna models would have a swappable battery, allowing customers to benefit from the widespread swap stations Pierer Mobility group’s KTM group (includes Husqvarna) plans to establish with Piaggio, Honda, and Yamaha Motor in Europe.
Electric scooter market outlook
Pierer Mobility estimates the European region to be a USD 10 billion market for electric two-wheelers in 2025. It says that short distance mobility share should grow from 5-10% to 20-30% by 2030 in urban cities like Munich, Germany and that the existing European motorcycle & scooter market in the 50 to 125 cc category will become 50% electric in the low voltage range on short distance by 2030. The Husqvarna electric scooter marks the first step of the brand to capitalise on this growth.
The Husqvarna e-scooter will be an L3e-A1 category EV as per EU regulations, and so, its power and power-to-weight ratio won’t exceed 11 kW and 0.1 kW/kg, respectively. Husqvarna intends to expand its dealer network to facilitate the growth of electric vehicles in the European market. It is searching for qualified dealers in large metropolitan cities of Europe, focusing on Germany, Italy, Spain, and France.
Husqvarna Electric scooter release date
Coronavirus’s disruption last year and the global shortage of chips (semiconductors) have affected the launch timeline. The Husqvarna electric scooter will enter production next year. Production would take place in India, as per the company’s investor presentations.
Urban E-Mobility strategy
Under the ‘Urban E-Mobility strategy,’ Husqvarna aims to be a pioneer in the PTW segment (Powered Two Wheeler segment). Its parent company Pierer Mobility aims to earn a revenue of EUR 500 million from its electrified models by 2025.
