SEAT’s fully-electric e-Scooter concept has a compact design based on stylised geometric shapes. The final version of the motorcycle will ultimately be available to buy in 2020, and will be aimed at private users, shared services and fleets.
The e-Scooter concept is equipped with a 7kW motor with a peak rate of 11kW (14.8hp), equivalent to 125cc, which delivers instant engine torque of 240Nm with a top speed of 100km/h (62mph), enough to accelerate to 50 km/h (31mph) in just 3.8 seconds. Furthermore, its driving range on a single charge amounts to 115 kilometres (71 miles), according to WMTC test results.
The battery can be removed and easily charged at home or public charging stations at an estimated cost to all customers of only €0.70 for every 100 kilometres (62 miles) in continental Europe. In addition, the e-Scooter concept has enough storage space for two helmets beneath the seat. Users can track battery charge level and location via a mobile app.
The company has also unveiled a concept of its new generation e-Kickscooter. This new version features a range of up to 65km (40 miles), two independent brake systems and a much higher capacity battery that reaches 551Wh.
