In 1991 at the Tokyo Automobile Fair, we remember the presentation of the Frog, the brand’s first electric scooter while later the Passol or the EC-03 were soon to do their first rounds of wheels. Our little electric neo’s is thus the fruit of a long line of electric and thermal models which allowed it to arrive at this technicality, but also inspired its outdoor drawing.
