Nuovo Torrot Velocipedo elettrico all’EICMA

12 nov, 2017

di Matteo Sala dall’EICMA Fonte: Torrot Milano, 9 novembre 2017. Un veicolo a zero emissioni progettato per migliorare la vita e la sostenibilità nei centri urbani, accessibile a tutti gli utenti grazie alla sua facilità d’uso. Un prodotto capace di coniugare il comfort e la protezione proprie dell’automobile con l’agilità di una motocicletta. In una parola, Velocipedo, il nuovo modello della spagnola Torrot svelato in anteprima a Eicma 2017. Il nome affonda le radici nei velocipedi a due e tre ruote sviluppati nel 1868 a Cadice, che trasformarono la vita e il volto della città, introducendo un nuovo concetto di mobilità “adatto alle esigenze dei loro tempi”. Esattamente quello che si propone oggi Torrot con il suo Velocipedo elettrico, che verrà assemblato proprio nel polo produttivo della città andalusa. Il Torrot Velocipedo è un mezzo a tre ruote, 100% elettrico, dotato di autonomia fino a 150 chilometri, recupero dell’energia in frenata, telaio in acciaio, supporti del cupolino in fibra di carbonio e degli ultimi ritrovati in fatto di connettività, con l’inedita tecnologia “e-call” che permette di dialogare con il proprio veicolo attraverso una app. Il motore in dotazione da 10 kW – alimentato da cinque batterie agli ioni di litio, rimovibili, plug&play, ricaricabili in tre ore e mezza all’80% in modalità fast charge – potrà spingere il mezzo fino a 88 km/h (velocità limitata), con quattro modalità di guida (Boost, City, Tourer, Eco) e autonomia dichiarata di 150 km. Sul mercato dal settembre 2018 (ma può già essere prenotato), sarà disponibile in due modelli. Il Velocipedo, un due posti coperto (la seduta del passeggero, però, non è delle più comode), dotato di cinture e che potrà essere guidato senza casco. Oppure, nella versione denominata Velocipedo C, monoposto, aperto (solo parabrezza, casco obbligatorio), con una maggiore capacità di carico grazie a un ampio box (capacità di 40 kg o 210 litri), pensato quindi per uso commerciale. Prezzo a partire da 6.000 euro Iva esclusa, con obiettivo di piazzare tremila unità nel primo anno. Oltre al Velocipedo, che si prende la scena, Torrot ha portato a Milano anche la sua prima moto elettrica da Trial, la TXE, e l’evoluzione dello scooter Muvi: diverse migliorie per lo scooter elettrico, che sul piano della performance si traducono in un aumento della velocità massima, che arriva a 60 km/h nella versione da 3 kW (45 per quella da 2,65 kW). Sul fronte bici, presentati anche due nuovi modelli di bici elettrica sportiva: Dakota per uso sportivo e Dakota Urban, per un uso meno estremo, entrambe dotate di motore Torrot Brushless da 250W, con batteria Samsug da 36V e quasi 500 Wh ricaricabile in sei ore. Tra le city bike, debutto per la Visiobike, disponibile in due versioni (motore da 250W o 350W) dotata di una nuova generazione di batterie agli ioni di litio: peso 3 kg, ricarica in tre ore, autonomia fino a 120 km. Infine, Torrot ha rinnovato la sua popolare bici elettrica, la Citysurfer, a Milano nella versione Special.

Torrot Velocipedo: the revolution in Urban Mobility

The revolution in urban mobility is here thanks to innovative Torrot Velocipedo Source: Torrot Milan, Italy. 9th November 2017. The future is now a reality with the launch of the new Torrot Velocipedo, an innovative and revolutionary formula for understanding urban mobility. The new 100% electric, technologically advanced concept created by Torrot combines the comfort and protection of a car with the agility of a motorcycle, increasing stability thanks to its two front wheels. This is the great commitment from Torrot to improve urban mobility. An exclusive vehicle with zero emissions designed to improve life and sustainability in cities, and suitable for the profiles of all types of drivers thanks to its ease of use. Why have we named it “Torrot Velocipedo”? Its name is not the result of any random chance or because of serendipity, but due to history. In 1868, the Bruschet foundry started manufacturing unique two and three wheeled velocipedes. A practical and ingenious vehicle designed to free the streets of carriages and prevent the accumulation of waste in public spaces. The creation of these vehicles eventually transformed the life and transport of the capital of Cadiz, thanks to its new concept of mobility adapted to the needs of its time. A legendary name that has been recovered to name once again this revolutionary and novel concept of electric mobility with the name of Torrot Velocipedo. This of course is a hint of the complicity between Torrot and Cádiz, which will be the company manufacturing headquarters of this new, highly technological model. History repeats itself, the Torrot Velocipedo is back in Cádiz, the city where it was first born. And what needs does this new concept of vehicle answer? The Torrot Velocipedo means the creation of a totally innovative and transforming vehicle in urban mobility. A three-wheeled vehicle, 100% electric, with a range of up to 150 kilometres, regenerative braking, a structure of carbon fibre pillars and with special attention to aspects such as connectivity and new technologies: e-call. A revolutionary vehicle concept that fuses the most appreciated characteristics of the car, such as ease of use and comfort, with the strengths of the motorcycle, in this case the agility, acceleration and savings. The Torrot Velocipedo combines the stability of its three wheels with the comfort, safety and protection offered by its architecture. A practical and easy to use vehicle thanks to its small size, and with zero emissions this makes this renewed means of transportation the best way of promoting mobility and sustainability in large cities. How many types of models will there be? The new Torrot Velocipedo uses the same base design for two models to meet the transport needs of individuals and companies. In the first phase, Torrot will manufacture two types of models. A two-seater, covered and with which you can drive without a helmet thanks to its seatbelt. And another second one-seater, called the Torrot Velocipedo C, with a greater load carrying capacity. It will be open, so the use of a helmet will be obligatory and designed for commercial use. Two models, adaptable to the particular needs of each of its customers. Who can drive it? The L3 electrical standard is the equivalent to 125 cc motorcycles with internal combustion engines. This means all those people with an A driving license in Spain (A1 from the age of 16) or with a B car license with more than three years experience will be allowed to drive the new Torrot Velocipedo. Where and how can they be bought? The Torrot Velocipedo is not only revolutionary in its concept, but also in its commercialization, since the first reservations can be made from its launch at the Motorcycle Show in Milan.
