2013 Kymco Shows the Candy Electric Scooter

More and more electric vehicles surface, and that's good, because we all hope the prices will start to become more affordable once a fierce competition will be afoot and the markets will be flooded with EVs.

Kymco makes no exception and shows the Candy electric scooter at the 2012 EICMA. While this scooter comes with no design frills, it's clearly oriented toward functionality and ease of use.

The Kymco Candy sports a Lithium-Ion battery powering a 2 HP engine, seemingly enough for cruising around the city for shopping or going to work. The scooter weighs in at a very nifty 75 kg (165 lbs) and this adds to the convenience and maneuverability side.

The max range offered by the Kymco Candy is 60 km (37mi) on a charge and that's so much more than most people do in one single day. A 4-hour charging time means you can leave it plugged in over night, even if you're late at home, and have it fully charged in the morning. If the price, yet unknown, will also be as nice as the machine is, we can expect to see a lot of these in Europe's cities in 2013.
