A brief History of Piaggio
Piaggio was first founded by Rinaldo Piaggio, who set out to produce locomotives and railway carriages in 1884.
When World War I started, Piaggio turned to producing aircraft. Once the war had ended, Rinaldo Piaggio's son Enrico, decided to aim the company at a new market and to help Italy's urgent need for a modern and affordable mode of transportation. The idea was to design an inexpensive vehicle for the masses.
However, it wasn’t until 1946 that Piaggio had its first breakthrough in the form of the iconic Vespa. Since then, Piaggio has evolved to be one of the biggest two-wheeler manufacturers in Europe.
Fast forward to the modern day, and once again Piaggio is leading the way in the two-wheeler and three-wheeler market with the introduction of the Piaggio MP3 and their first electric scooter, the Piaggio One.
