Seat has started series production of its Seat Mó eScooter 125 electric scooter with e-motorcycle manufacturer Silence. The electric scooter is already being used in sharing applications in Barcelona and the e-scooter will also be available in Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Sweden in the first quarter of 2021.
The e-scooter, which can reach speeds of up to 95 km/h, is manufactured at the Silence plant in Sant Boi de Llobregat near Barcelona. In Spain, the model is available immediately from 18 dealers. Following the expansion into the aforementioned countries, the Seat Mó eScooter 125 will then also be launched in Portugal from the second half of 2021. The scooter will run under Seat’s Mó mobility brand, which was unveiled in June, and the purchase price will start at €6,250 in Spain.
Seat Mó eScooter 125 electric scooter has an electric motor with a continuous output of 7 kW and a maximum output of 9 kW. Seat says the e-scooter can accelerate from 0 to 50 km/h in 3.9 seconds. The manufacturer has not provided details on the capacity of the battery that gives the micromobility vehicle range of 137 kilometres. The Seat Mó eScooter 125 can be driven in Eco, City and Sport modes, and the manufacturers say the electric two-wheeler has a high level of connectivity. Colours available include Daring Red, Aluminum Grey and Oxygen White.
A fleet of 632 electric scooters of the same type has been available in Barcelona since late August. The vehicles can be booked via an app for 0.26 euros/minute or by subscription. Batteries with low charge levels are exchanged and recharged at a charging hub in the city. Seat Mó apparently does not intend to export the sharing model for the time being, currently focusing entirely on Barcelona. The company sees the Spanish city as its own “playground for new mobility solutions,” according to the launch of the sharing service in August.
