SEAT to present eScooter concept; to offer electric motorcycle in 2020

SEAT is strengthening its commitment to urban mobility and breaking into the motorcycle market with the presentation of the SEAT eScooter concept. The company will sell its own 100% electric motorcycle equivalent to a 125 cc model in 2020. The official presentation is taking place in Barcelona during the Smart City Expo World Congress.

The new SEAT eScooter concept is going to be included in the company’s urban mobility strategy, which focuses on offering sustainable solutions for cities. SEAT announced it would spearhead the Volkswagen Group’s micromobility strategy at the past edition of the Mobile World Congress. This strategy also includes the SEAT Minimó concept car as well as the SEAT eXS Kickscooter powered by Segway which was presented at the 2018 Smart City Expo.

Barcelona is the European city with the most motorcycles per capita and has a long-standing two-wheeler mobility tradition. For this reason, SEAT is going to develop this concept in collaboration with Barcelona-based electric motorcycle maker Silence, and it will be sold to both private customers and for sharing fleets.

SEAT is in the process of becoming a mobility services provider that goes beyond the scope of making vehicles in an effort to respond to one of the major mobility trends of the future: the collaborative, shared, sustainable economy. In this sense, the company already offers carsharing services through Respiro, and in addition is selling the SEAT eXS KickScooter powered by Segway, which is available for sharing services through the start-up UFO as well.

Furthermore, SEAT recently presented the SEAT Minimó concept car, an all-electric vehicle that combines the best of a car and a motorcycle and is designed to adapt to the mobility platforms that will shape the future of driving in cities.
