Electric Scooter Evaluation in Real Conditions 2002-01-2178

The Municipality of Rome stimulated the introduction in town area of innovative and demonstrative large fleet of scooter for personal transports, referred to the electric technology. This experience was motivated by the need of a real evaluation and characterization of an innovative technology that yields promises of reduction of pollutant emission and of energy saving, in view of a possible massive introduction in the congested and polluted urban areas. This paper reports the results of this real experience in terms of the fundamental performances of these scooters (energy consumptions, reliability) and demonstrates also how the experimental results can constitute a feedback to the design phase to improve the vehicle performances. This experience also demonstrates that the electric scooter is a useful and practicable idea that confirms many of its presuppositions and takes on an important role in the innovative zero emission vehicle technology.
