Spanish carmaker Seat is cashing in on the increasing demand for urban mobility solutions with its new range of MÓ eScooters – and they’re likely to be offered in the UK.
Eight months after the company revealed its first-ever two-wheeler in its 70-year history, the Spanish brand will offer three series-production eScooters, with the range-topping 125 model a full-fledged electric motorcycle. It mates a 12bhp motor to a 5.6kWh battery, providing a range of up to 77 miles / 125 kilometres and the performance of a 125cc motorcycle. Seat claims a 59mph/95kph top speed and a 0-31mph /50kph time of 3.9sec.
The eScooter 125 also features three driving modes and a reverse gear, a removable battery that can be charged at home and smartphone app tracking. Two USB charging ports also feature. A specific version for fleet buyers comes with elements ideal for sharing such as a topbox to store helmets.
Two conventional electric scooters are also offered: the eKickScooter 65 and eKickScooter 25. The 65 offers a 40-mile/64km range from a 551Wh battery pack and a 12mph/19kph top speed. It also receives front and rear drum brakes and lights front and rear, including a brake light. The eKickScooter 25 is the same design but will be cheaper, with a 19km range.
