Lucy is a new electric scooter from Naon, a German startup that aims to create light, graphic and minimalist designs. The name Lucy comes from the Latin word Lucius, which means “light”. Lucy is not just a prototype, but a production-ready model that will soon hit the market. Here are some of the features and specifications of this innovative scooter.
Two variants, two prices
Lucy will be available in two variants: L1e and L3e. The L1e is a low-power model that can reach a top speed of 45 kmph. The L3e is a high-power model that can go up to 100 kmph. The prices of these variants are different, depending on whether you want to buy or rent the battery pack. The L1e will cost around 5,500 Euros (approximately Rs 4.90 lakh) without battery, and the L3e will cost around 7,500 Euros (about Rs 6.67 lakh) without battery. You can choose to buy or rent two batteries at no extra cost, or just one battery pack.
Powerful motor and long-range battery
Lucy has a hub motor that can produce up to 7kW of power and 200Nm of torque. The battery pack is located under the floorboard of the scooter and has a capacity of 5.2kWh. This battery can give Lucy a range of up to 160 km on a full charge. The battery can be easily removed and charged at home or at a charging station.
Lightweight frame and advanced features
Lucy has a lightweight aluminum frame that makes it easy to handle and maneuver. It also has an ABS disc brake system that ensures safety and stability. The L3e variant has larger wheels and a new single-sided swingarm that improves its performance. It also has a double-bridge fork that enhances its suspension. Lucy has a signature light on the front that gives it a distinctive look.
Lucy is expected to launch in Europe in late 2023 or early 2024. It is not clear if it will be available in other markets as well. Lucy is an example of how electric scooters can be innovative, efficient and stylish at the same time.
