Vehicle1999 Peugeot Scootelec
These electric scooters have been in production at
Peugeot motorcycles since 1996. I has had a previous life
in an project founded by the City of Stockholm where
scooters as well as PSA and Renault electric cars where
evaluated. All used the same type of wet NiCd batteries
made by SAFT that where state of the art 10 years ago.
I now plan to replace these with lighter LiFePO batteries
and use a slightly higher tension too.
