Lambretta G325 Special electric scooter concept recently made its public debut in Milan at EICMA 2019. And now we have learned that the company will bring this e scooter to India as it braces to make its way back into the Indian market. Though the Italian two-wheeler manufacturer is yet to confirm, word has it that it will showcase a production model of an e scooter based on the aforementioned G-Special concept.
The G325 features a steel monocoque with interchangeable side panels, and a “full rider interface”, which seems like jargon for a smart digital instrument cluster. Lambretta says the G325 also feature a Lambretta logo shaped light integrated with the foot board that automatically ignites as the rider approaches the scooter. From the image, we can see that the G325 stays true to Lambretta’s design language, with long swooping lines and large body panels. However, there are some modern touches like the integrated turn indicators, LED headlight and an interesting air-intake snout above the front fender. The concept has also been equipped with J Juan disc brakes at both ends.
The electric Lambretta for India was not the only major news announced in 2018. Innocenti, Lambretta International’s parent company, also reported that it was looking at setting up an assembly plant in or around Mumbai. According to the company, the plant will provide the Indian market with ‘original Lambretta products’ and will operate as a production hub for surrounding countries and Africa. Yesterday, at EICMA, it also revealed that it’s focusing on electric scooters and motorcycles, and also on investing in technology that uses hydrogen as fuel.

Lambretta has taken a keen interest in electric mobility recently, which it also announced at EICMA 2019. But it won’t be limiting its efforts on your run-of-the-mill EV technology; the company noted that besides working on electric scooters and bikes, it is also investing in hydrogen fuel technology so as to broaden its horizons in the context of electric vehicles.
