In conjunction with industry leading engineers, we have developed cutting edge technology that allows classic Lambretta J range scooters to be run purely on electric power. The exterior styling remains totally original whilst ease of riding, reliability, economy and environmental footprint are all brought into the 21st Century.
Our kit includes a DC brushless electric motor, sinusoidal motor controller, custom made swing arm, under seat battery tray and a single removable LG lithium-ion battery, along with a keyless ignition, battery gauge, all cables, LED headlight conversion and a charging cable. Additional batteries and chargers can be purchased separately.
We offer this as a conversion to customers who already have a classic scooter or as an engine option to customers who are looking to carry out a new restoration with us.
During the build process we strip out the old petrol engine, electrics and cabling, and install our kit as a direct replacement.
The 64v 28ah, 1800w battery is capable of up to a range of 30 miles, ideal for your daily commute. We recommend carrying an extra charger with you, to allow you to top up wherever you are or alternatively purchasing a second battery to leave at another location. Our battery range is based on real world usage not hypothetical industry ranges. Batteries can either be charged onboard or removed for charging indoors.
The J50 and J125 along with it's other derivatives where notoriously slow vintage scooters but once our electric conversion kit is installed, it results in smooth, fast acceleration and a top speed of 55 mph.
All Project: E scooters are London ULEZ and Congestion Charge exempt as well as qualifying for free road tax.
