Launched in 1996, the Scoot'elec was based on the Zenith, with which it shares body panels and suspension parts. It is powered by a 2.8 kW (3.8 hp) DC motor fed from three Saft nickel-cadmium monoblocs giving an 18 V, 100 A·h battery. Built around a "double cradle", the frame holds the batteries low down between and behind the rider's feet, providing a very low centre of gravity. The electronic controller and onboard charger are housed under the seat.
The scooter weighs 115 kg (254 lb). It has a nominal range of 40 km (25 mi) at 45 km/h (28 mph), but this can be extended by using economy mode, which limits the speed to 30 km/h (19 mph).
