Just one year after the release of the world's first hybrid scooter, Piaggio has launched yet another. Named the MP3 Hybrid LT 300ie, this scooter is a three-wheeler with a 278cc gasoline-powered engine.

Featuring a hybrid drive system with an automatic CVT transmission, the MP3 Hybrid LT 300ie has four drive modes, two hybrid and two electric. This optimizes the scooter's performance as well as making it a zero-emission electric vehicle.

Implications - If you're in the market for a new mode of transportation but are hesitant to make a large investment in a car, then this three-wheeler scooter will definitely interest you. With its planet-preserving properties and compact design, this may be the perfect starter vehicle for plenty of people.
