Electric scooters are becoming increasingly popular in Europe as a sustainable mode of personal transportation. Many people are opting for electric bicycles, scooters, and motorbikes instead of cars, and as battery technology improves, electric two-wheelers are becoming more reliable.
Spanish car manufacturer SEAT recently entered the e-mobility market with the Mo 125 electric scooter, designed for beginner commuters. They have also introduced the Mo 50, an electric scooter comparable to a 50cc gas-powered machine, making it accessible for riders as young as 14 years old.
The Mo 50 features a replaceable 5.6 kWh battery, a 4 kW nominal motor, and a peak motor of 7.3 kW (approximately 9.7 horsepower) which can give a range of 172 kilometers (108 miles) per charge. It will also have three driving modes: City, Sport, and Eco.
The scooter has a preload-adjustable mono-shock at the rear, and a standard telescopic fork at the front for suspension, and vented discs for braking on both ends. The Mo 50 also has a storage compartment under the seat that can hold up to two helmets. It will be available in two colors, Barcelona Gray and Tarifa Blue. The pricing of the scooter is yet to be announced, but it will be available in the first half of 2023.
