In Fontainebleau, near Paris, a Domino’s Pizza store is using three T2.4 electric scooters from Govecs to deliver pizzas.

The T2.4 is the cargo version of the S2.4 model from the German manufacturer. It is a 50cc-equivalent scooter with a 3kW brushless motor and a 3 kWh lithium battery that can be recharged to 80% in 2 hours. Top speed is 45 km/h (28 mph) and the range 60 – 100 km (37 – 62 miles), for a price of €5,730 ($7,363).

A few months ago, Govecs introduced a new entry model, the S1.3, replacing the S1.2 equipped with lead-acid batteries. The S1.3 was upgraded to a 1.5 kWh lithium battery rechargeable to 80% in one hour. The 4 kW motor has 54Nm of torque. Despite its light weight (100kg, or 220 lbs ) it only has a range of 30 to 50 km (19 to 31 miles) at 45 km/h (28 mph). The S1.3 is priced at € 3,990 ($5,127).

Last August, one of the early investors in Govecs took control of 100% of the shares, but the firm declined to give his name. “The commitment by our investor gives GOVECS the security in funding and planning necessary to further grow our business”, explained Thomas Gruebel, CEO of Govecs. Let’s hope this is true, because the European scooter market seems to be entering a period of consolidation.

Peugeot Scooters, which is the second biggest scooter manufacturer in Europe and produces the electric scooter e-Vivacity, is rumored to be in the process of being sold to the Indian firm Mahindra. And that might open the doors to an invasion of Indian scooters into Europe.

    Wow that is an expensive bike for what you get. For that same $5,000 I can buy a 2 times faster (62 mph) ZEV 6000 with double the range. For the $7,300 of the top Govecs scooter I can buy a ZEV 7100 that runs 75 mph (2.7 times faster).

    I own a ZEV LRC, the 15 kw beast with 83 mph speed and 140 mile range out on the highway. Bet I could get 180 miles or more if I slowed down to the Govecs speed. http://www.zelectricvehicle.com
