Seat Mó 125: the test of the first e-scooter from the Spanish company

“And Mó let’s see”. If the company were Roman this could be Seat’s message to launch his first scooter, what’s more electric. With Big shot 125 in fact, the perception of eco-sustainable scooters changes, but above all a challenge to the competition is launched, still characterized by a heat engine. Yes, because we tell you right away, Seat Mó is certainly a successful vehicle that could even become a reference in the urban two-wheeled mobility market.

Seat Mó 125: technical characteristics

But let’s go in order and see what Seat’s first e-scooter looks like. If the first impact with Mó brings your mind back to other electric vehicles it is no coincidence. The two-wheeler Seat is the result of a two-year collaboration with Silence, a fellow citizen and more experienced in the production of eco-sustainable vehicles. What one might immediately think is that this new electric scooter is a simple rebranding of Silence S01, but it is not. The basis is the same, but Seat technicians have studied the engine mappings, changed the seat height and also the suspension settings. Not really secondary aspects.

From an aesthetic point of view there is a reference to the four wheels of the Barcelona house, it has a young design, with attention to every detail and opaque colors that make it immediately recognizable. At sight it is compact, with premium materials also as regards the LED optical groups. The dimensions are close to those of direct thermal competitors, but the weight is much higher: we are talking about 152kg. There are many, but at the same time well distributed.

The shield is designed to offer good aerodynamics, despite the Seat Mó being a comfortable and practical scooter as evidenced by thelarge compartment under the saddle in which you can store two jet helmets. An aspect not to be underestimated also considering that the battery pack is bulky, heavy and centrally positioned. Speaking of the battery at Seat, on the one hand, we thought about the distribution of weights, and on the other hand, the maximum practicality for recharging an electric scooter.

The 5.6 kWh battery it can be easily removed and taken away like a trolley. Once extracted, in fact, a handle and wheels come out to allow us to recharge it even inside the house. For a complete recharge the estimated time varies from 6 to 8 hours and the indicative cost is 1 euro for a full tank. The battery itself is also equipped with an LED ring that indicates the state of charge. Obviously one of the hottest topics regarding the battery is autonomy: 137km are estimated according to the WLTP homologation cycle.

Finally, Seat Mó is characterized by a low center of gravity, which allows excellent maneuverability at low speeds and in general for less skilled drivers. The wheels are 15 and 14 inches and have 260 and 240mm discs: the front uses a double piston caliper. The plant relies on the system of CBS combined braking which is activated using the left lever, while using the right lever (dedicated to the front caliper) regenerative braking is activated.

Seat Mó road test: performance

The motor, mounted in the rear wheel, generates 7kW of power (9kW of maximum bridge), 240Nm of torque and allows to reach a maximum speed of 95km/h (self-limited). Acceleration takes us from 0 to 50km / h in just 3.9 seconds. Ideal performance for urban use, but not only, in fact, even on the extra-urban roads of the Torricelle, the hills that dominate Verona, Seat Mó becomes an excellent travel companion. While acceleration is clearly a strong point, so is braking: prompt and adjustable. One detail we really appreciated are the adjustable brake levers. The different situations in which we put Seat Mó to the test allowed us to thoroughly test the three preset driving modes: Eco, City and Sport.

The first is obviously the one that limits the most speed and acceleration, it does not go beyond 50 km / h, to consume as little battery as possible. But it is also the ideal mode for those who are not so familiar with two wheels and the one in which you feel the sensation of engine brake. The mapping City it is instead the most balanced and the one that will probably be most used, moreover, when the battery drops only 20% of residual charge is inserted automatically. The last driving profile is that Sport, the one that clearly requires more battery power but also the one that will allow us to have fun driving and recover energy when braking.

After the curves, the climbs and some photos riding the Mó we went down to the city. We assume that the cobblestones of the center are certainly not the best friends of scooters, as well as holes and bumpy road surfaces. In these conditions you pay the price of a rigid scooter which, if at higher speeds and in different conditions we liked a lot, here creates some small difficulties.

During a journey of over 40 km, between cities, hills, cobblestones, acceleration and braking, Seat Mó proved to be a very reliable travel companion in almost all conditions. This is very important with respect to 137km of autonomy declared we are absolutely online. We completed a journey of over 80km and returned to base with over 40km of remaining range having covered long stretches in sport mode.

Finally, a very convenient feature for the city is reverse. Yes, that’s right, you got it right, with this escooter we can comfortably move backwards. Useful for getting out of a parking lot or moving around when we are not on flat stretches. It is activated with a button on the handlebar and giving a thread of gas. Surely this is not something fundamental and which we certainly felt the need for, but it is a nice comfort considering that the Seat Mó is not very light.

The connected eScooter

Seat Mó comes with two USB sockets and Bluetooth connectivity to pair a smartphone and thus take advantage of some additional functions through the My Seat Mó app. For example, we can use a digital key to start and stop the engine. Use the Bike Finder function to find our scooter among many others. Obviously there is also a motor management system through which to check the battery charge level, see the kilometers traveled and check the CO2 emissions saved. We can also share our Seat Mó with whoever we want through the app. In short, a scooter also rich in technology.

Seat Mó, how much coast?

There are three colors that characterize the new Seat Mó (red, white and gray) all finished with black details. For our test we had the oxygen white model available. The starting price is € 6750 so definitely high, but you can get it down quickly. In fact, all the incentives can bring the price down to around 4500 euros. By spending this amount you will save other costs at a later time starting from the full recharge which is worth 1 euro, and also remember that the battery has a 4-year warranty. But it does not end there, because Seat has thought about the possibility of offering an installment plan at zero interest and with no down payment starting from 99 euros per month at zero interest for 48 months.


After trying the new eScooter 125 we can only confirm the first impressions: Seat with its debut in the world of two wheels has already made it clear that it has taken the matter very seriously. Seat Mó has all the credentials to meet the needs of those looking for a solid, spacious but at the same time not too bulky vehicle. It is also suitable for those who want an eco-sustainable vehicle but with good autonomy. But at the same time it is also suitable for those with a sportier soul. In conclusion, the Seat Mó is an escooter that can really satisfy a large customer base, also considering that a B or A1 license is enough for those who are 16 years old to drive it.

Seat mobility on two wheels should not be considered as the future, but it is already more than present. Seat Mó 125 confirms this.
