Italdesign and Askoll collaborated for the new range of electric scooter
In partnership with Askoll, Italdesign has designed new electric scooters with new and original lines that perfectly express Askoll’s vision for the future when it comes to electric mobility, while remaining true to the values and the soul of the brand.
Designed with the aim of making it easier to navigate urban areas while optimising resources and performance levels, the DIXY range consists of two lightweight and easy-to-handle scooters with a comfortable two-seater saddle for the perfect occupancy experience. The DIXY scooters are large, with a more protective shield, and offer even better safety while driving. This was not simply an aesthetic choice, but also a functional one, to guarantee the highest performance levels.
DIXY, the entry-level model in the range, has a maximum power of 1.5 kW and a torque of 130 Nm, can reach 45 km/h and has a maximum range of 45 km, in accordance with EC reg. 168/2013. Its high-efficiency Askoll brushless motor is powered as standard by a lithium ion battery pack with a total maximum capacity of 1,045 Wh and weighing 7.6 kg. The braking system consists of a 190 mm disc brake at the front and a 140 mm drum at the rear. The new DIXY is available in three colour variants: pastel white, anthracite and red.
DIXY PLUS has a maximum power of 2.2 kW and a torque of 130 Nm, can also reach 45 km/h and has a maximum range of 71 km, in accordance with EC reg. 168/2013. Its high-efficiency Askoll brushless motor is powered as standard by two lithium ion battery packs with a total combined capacity of 2,090 Wh and weighing 7.6 kg each. Braking is assured with disc brakes with a 190 mm diameter at the front and rear. DIXY PLUS features a digital display with a Bluetooth connectivity and communication module for connection to the new Askoll Smart Drive App, which is already available to download from Google play and the App Store. Equipped as standard with a storage compartment, it is available in white, anthracite, silver, red and dark green colour variants.
