Source: press release Askoll | Since their launch in 2015, Askoll electric scooters have cemented their position as undisputed market leaders and claim the number one sales spot in Italy every year. The Vicenza-based company is preparing to usher in a new era as it uses Eicma to offer a preview of its new generation of scooters featuring innovative stylistic content, capable of winning over a public that demands even more in terms of design while on the lookout for a traditional aesthetic.
In partnership with Italdesign, Askoll has developed new electric scooters with redesigned and original lines that perfectly express Askoll’s vision for the future when it comes to electric mobility, while remaining true to the values and the soul of the brand.
Designed with the aim of making it easier to navigate urban areas while optimising resources and performance levels, the DIXY range consists of two lightweight and easy-to-handle scooters with a comfortable two-seater saddle for the perfect occupancy experience. The DIXY scooters are large, with a more protective shield, and offer even better safety while driving. This was not simply an aesthetic choice, but also a functional one, to guarantee the highest performance levels.
DIXY1, the entry-level model in the range, has a maximum power of 1.5 kW and a torque of 130 Nm, can reach 45 km/h and has a maximum range of 45 km, in accordance with EC reg. 168/2013. Its high efficiency Askoll brushless motor is powered as standard by a lithium ion battery pack with a total maximum capacity of 1,045 Wh and weighing 7.6 kg. The braking system consists of a 190 mm disc brake at the front and a 140 mm drum at the rear. The new DIXY1 is available in three colour variants: pastel white, anthracite and red.
DIXY2 has a maximum power of 2.2 kW and a torque of 130 Nm, can also reach 45 km/h and has a maximum range of 71 km, in accordance with EC reg. 168/2013. Its high-efficiency Askoll brushless motor is powered as standard by two lithium ion battery packs with a total combined capacity of 2,090 Wh and weighing 7.6 kg each. Braking is assured with disc brakes with a 190 mm diameter at the front and rear.
DIXY2 features a digital display with a Bluetooth connectivity and communication module for connection to the new Askoll Smart Drive App, which is already available to download from Google play and the App Store. Equipped as standard with a storage compartment, it is available in white, anthracite, silver, red and dark green colour variants.
The suspension – telescopic hydraulic at the front and single-shock at the rear – and the large wheels (80/80-16’’ at the front and 90/80-16’’ at the rear) are central features of both versions, as are the dualcompound tyres, which are softer at the edges and hard-wearing in the centre.
As with all Askoll electric scooters, the new DIXY models also have removable batteries and can be charged easily using any electrical socket or via the scooter itself, by connecting them to the corresponding battery charger. It takes approximately 3 hours per 1 kWh to achieve a full charge from 0% to 100%.
The DIXY range will be released for sale in the second quarter of 2020, with a launch price starting from €1,990.
