SEAT is offering new mobility solutions to meet the needs of cities and its residents and commuters, by launching three electric urban mobility vehicles: SEAT MÓ eScooter125 (electric motorcycle) and the SEAT MÓ eKickScooter65 and eKickScooter25 (electric scooter).
Each offers a different approach to mobility, but highlights the changing face of how we travel around cities.
As the Department for Transport begins studies into the feasibility and viability of allowing electric scooters to be used on pavement, cycle lanes and public roads by trialling rental schemes, such as those seen in other European cities, the SEAT MÓ vehicles will be the perfect solution. Subject to successful completion of the trials and being legalised, SEAT will make these vehicles available to purchase across the UK.
SEAT MÓ eScooter125
The SEAT MÓ eScooter125 is making traversing towns and cities simpler and more convenient.
Integrated into its rear wheel is an 9kW electric motor (peak power) – equivalent to a 125cc motorcycle – that produces 240Nm of torque, giving the city electric motorcycle a top speed of up to 59mph (95km/h) and a 0-31mph (50km/h) acceleration time of only 3.9 seconds.
The SEAT MÓ eScooter125 has a range of up to 77 miles (125km) on a single charge of its 5.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack meaning that, based on typical usage levels, the vehicle should only need charging once a week.
Practicality isn’t limited to performance and charging times either. The SEAT MÓ eScooter 125 also offers enough onboard storage for up to two helmets in the under seat compartment. And, in an ever more digitalised and connected world, the SEAT MÓ eScooter125 enables users to track their vehicle using a smartphone app, giving information on position and status updates.
Customers can choose between three driving modes: City, Sport and Eco, as well as a reverse gear to make manoeuvering simpler.
SEAT MÓ eKickScooter65 and eKickScooter25
As demand for new mobility solutions in crowded cities increases, the SEAT MÓ eKickScooter65 offers the possibility of silent, electric progress on a scooter.
The SEAT MÓ eKickScooter65 enables longer travel across cities with a 40 mile (65km) range thanks to its 551Wh battery pack and a top speed of 12mph (20km/h). The electric scooter offers a nominal power of 350W, which is enough energy to easily tackle a climbing angle of up to 20 degrees.
Front and rear lights, brake light and side/rear reflectors increase visibility, while, perhaps most importantly, safety is assured with a front electronic and rear drum brake – one of the very few manufacturers to include two brakes on to an electric scooter.
In order to offer even more versatility, SEAT MÓ eKickScooter 65 will allow user to choose between three driving modes – Eco, Standard and Sport.
In addition to the eKickScooter65, which offers a longer range, SEAT is also offering the eKickScooter25, which has a 12 mile range (25km), ideal for commuters completing the last leg of their journey.
