SEAT MO eScooter 125
Spanish brand Seat, owned by the VW Group, has not been spared from the electric race that has unfolded in the last few years: unexpectedly for all fans of this brand at one of the 2019 shows, they have revealed to the world an electric scooter with a very interesting futuristic design.
The past year has shown that there is a high demand for zero-air-pollution, low-cost personal mobility around the world, and it turns out that Seat's electric scooter has gone into production at just the right time.
SEAT MÓ ESCOOTER 125 ELECTRIC SCOOTER
The electric scooter, named Mó 125, is actually based on another electric scooter, the S01, from the electric-powered brand Silence, located on the industrial outskirts of Barcelona, just like Seat. Seat and Silence have joined forces to bring the original S01 scooter to a higher level of functionality and efficiency, starting with the potential of a quick-release lithium-ion battery that can be easily charged at home.
The Seat Mó electric scooter is based on an electric motor with a constant output of 7kW and a peak output of 9kW, powered by a 6kWh battery that is sufficient for around 125km of travel. Top speed is 96km/h and acceleration from 0 to 50km/h takes 3.9 seconds. The electric scooter will have three performance modes to choose from: Eco, City and Sport. Rear-wheel drive will also be implemented for easy parking.
The chassis is equipped with front and rear disc brakes with recuperation, the wheelbase is 145cm, comfortable for a two-person ride, and the claimed weight of the electric scooter is 110kg.
Well, this is very interesting news in light of recent announcements from VW-Audi Group that they plan to aggressively develop electric vehicles and all of the car and motorbike brands that belong to the group will be involved. And it's good to know that this is a really promising area of business development - even for a purely automotive brand like Seat.
