"At Vectrix we are committed to bringing back the passion and excitement to transportation vehicles," said Brian Buccella, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Vectrix. "Vectrix electric vehicles help preserve oil - the earth's bloodline, while offering consumers an environmentally friendly way of transportation in urban cities. Free yourself of high gas prices and the frustration of traffic congestion; go electric with an electric cost of less than one cent per mile."
Replacing four- and two-wheel gas powered vehicles with a Vectrix will significantly lower the carbon footprint, as well as relieve urban noise and congestion. By replacing one car 70% of the time with a Vectrix, a household can reduce C02 emissions by 5 tons per year. **
Vectrix offers the VX-1 Li/Li+ and VX-2 which have an easy to use recharging system. Just plug the charging cord into a standard 110V/220V outlet. Within two hours, the Vectrix gets up to 80% of its total range back. Both models are proud recipients of the coveted European "e-Scooter of the Year" by CleanWeek 2020.
