Artelec 670

The Artelec 670 is perfectly adapted for the city, easy-to-use and comfortable. It will follow you everywhere you drive in the city and it is as silent as beautiful.

The Artelec scooter is leading the way thanks to its innovative dashboard, its natural elegance, its flat floor, its discrete shapes and its front wheel made in polished aluminium.
The Artelec 670 is equivalent to a 125cc scooter but offers better road performances. With a 6000W electric motor, 10 000W peak, its range reaches 46 miles (75 km) on highway and 75 miles (120 km) in the city, depending on the usage.

Unique, modern and elegant
The electric scooter Artelec 670 by ECCITY Motocycles is one of the very rare 100% electric vehicle in the world to offer similar performances (range, speed) to the 125cc petrol-powered equivalent. And its price remains attractive.
The Artelec 670 is a quality scooter, it has a very beautiful plastic finish, a digital dashboard and is very pleasant to drive. It has a unique design with its original curves, its integrated indicators and its retractable footsteps. It looks as elegant as an Italian scooter thanks to its flat floor but it looks also modern with its unique front.

Comfortable and easy to handle
Its 13 inches wheels make it easy to handle and comfortable even at a high speed. Its dimensions, its low weight, its narrow handlebar and wing mirrors allow the driver to weave easily out of traffic jams. The Artelec 670 is equipped with a rear gear which makes it even more manageable.

Motor 6.000W, 10.000W peak (125 cc equivalent)
The Artelec 670 motor reaches 6 000W when its runs normal and a 10 000W peak when it starts. This motor enables a maximum speed of 62mph (100km/h) and very strong linear accelerations.
The Artelec 670 is easy to use on city roads and on highways.

BMS System
The Eccity scooters feature a BMS (Battery Management System) designed by French experts that ensures the safety and balancing of each cell of the power pack and so its longevity.
The BMS is connected to the dashboard which displays precisely the remaining range and a LED that indicates that the battery is working properly.
This BMS energizes the power pack and starts the scooter : the battery voltage is 0V when the scooter is off. The battery is energized only if the key is on. The scooter is really designed to be safe to use and to maintain. A professional can safely change the tyres or the break pads when the motor is off and when the charger is unplugged (voltage = 0V).

On-board Charger
The Artelec 670 features a waterproof charger. The battery requires 9 hours to be charged 90% again in any standard 220V outlet. You can charge your scooter safely in your garage or on public charging spots without risking theft or disconnection of your charger. Optional external chargers are available to divide charging times by three.
