The Spanish brand is entering a very specific segment, that of electric scooters. Discover the SEAT MO eScooter 125, the manufacturer’s first model.
This is a big step forward for Spanish car manufacturer Seat. The subsidiary of the Volkswagen group, aware of the new challenges of urban mobility, will soon offer its customers its first 100% electric scooter, which we have already told you about in the electric scooters comparison.
The equivalent of a 125 cc scooter
This new model, dubbed the SEAT Mo eScooter 125cc, is the company’s first electric scooter. Its production was started with the company Silence, which specializes in electric motors. The objective is to meet the needs of the new generation of urban users who want personalized transport, but also ecological, efficient and agile.
Seat Mo eScooter: interesting features
Capable of reaching a maximum speed of 95 km / h, it is in fact a transport suitable for urban environments, but also peri-urban. It also has a range of up to 137 kilometers, according to information provided by Seat. In terms of power, this is the equivalent of a 125 cc.
A scooter resulting from the collaboration with Silence
What do we find under the “hood” of this new model of electric scooter? A 7 kW motor (with a maximum power of 9 kW), allowing it to reach a speed of 50 km / h in 3.9 seconds. But also a sufficient battery to give it an interesting autonomy. This is the result of the work of Seat’s R&D team with the company Silence.
An electric scooter with 3 driving modes
Three driving modes are available: Eco, City and Sport, with clearly identified uses and adapted energy consumption. Urban users will appreciate the detachable battery that allows it to be installed in the apartment at night, for example. Finally, this model also plays the card of connectivity with two USB ports. The trunk, located under the seat, can accommodate two helmets.
Seat Mo, a model for less than 6,500 euros
In terms of colors, three models are available: Daring Red, Aluminum Gray and Oxygen White. It is on the price side that things get even more interesting since the model that will be marketed in the first quarter of 2021 is announced at a price of 6,250 euros. In France, it will also be possible to save a small amount thanks to the ecological bonus. Finally, Seat also mentions the option of leasing from 3 euros per month for 48 months.
Finally, Seat insists on the ecological dimension of this product, which aims above all to “improve air quality and user mobility”.
