The new eScooter is priced at £4,996 per unit with the Government’s OLEV EV Grant included or available for £95 per month (48 months) on hire purchase, making it an affordable alternative for scooter users. To further simplify ownership, the eScooter 125’s battery can be charged in situ or be removed and placed nearer to a plug socket for convenient and safe charging.

Integrated into the SEAT MÓ’s rear wheel is an 9kW electric motor (peak power) – equivalent to a 125cc motorcycle or scooter – 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. Customers can choose between three driving modes: City, Sport and Eco, as well as a reverse gear to make manoeuvring simpler.

“SEAT MÓ is our answer to the demands of modern urban mobility” said Richard Harrison, Managing Director, SEAT UK. “With the UK Government’s 2030 deadline to consider, a two-wheeled electric vehicle is the perfect way to evolve the SEAT offering and move away from the conventional. This is a definitive next step on our electrification journey.”

The SEAT MÓ eScooter 125 has a range of up to 85 miles (137km) (WMTC) on a single charge of its removable 5.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Thanks to the innovative design of the pack, the battery can be easily and fully charged in six to eight hours from any standard 240V home socket.

The removable battery pack means finding easy access to a charger will never prove to be a problem again. The battery’s ‘click-and-go’ patented system is a sure-fire way to combat range anxiety.

For easy transportation of the 40kg weight of the battery pack, once removed, the eScooter 125 designers have carefully crafted an extendable handle and a set of caster wheels to enable the driver to pull the pack along to the nearest charging point – wherever this happens to be. Plus, the battery has an integrated 55W heater that operates while it’s charging.

Monitoring the battery pack is a state-of-the-art Battery Management System (BMS) that checks the cell voltage, the number of battery charges and discharges, and the temperature of the unit.

The SEAT MÓ benefits from a Combined Braking System (CBS), alongside regenerative braking and a reverse gear.

With the ventilated disc brakes on the front and rear tyres (260 and 240mm, respectively), the CBS provides excellent control through the corners. By using the left-hand brake, the brakes on both wheels are applied, while using the right-hand brake only applies the front but engages the regenerative braking – amplifying the braking effect and recharging the battery.
