Vectrix, the first out of the gate in an electric two-wheeler market that is finally starting to take off, has perhaps raced off a little too enthusiastically, because now they’re bankrupt and in liquidation. Their zero-emissions electric scooter, the eponymous Vectrix, was a large scooter (a “maxi” in the strange scooter subculture lingo) assembled in Poland. It had pretty decent range (65 miles, claimed) and performance (0-60 in 7 seconds), but it was generally expensive and lacked the panache of, say, the Mission Electric motorcycle.

I’m not going to lie: I wouldn’t be caught dead on one of these, but anecdotally there’s certainly enough interest in the concept for another company to pick up the flag and run with it.
