Seat has unveiled its first 50 cc electric scooter, soberly named SEAT MÓ 50. On paper, this model boasts an extremely interesting technical sheet. Its price has just been announced: 5,900 euros.
Article updated on March 14, 2023: Seat has just announced the price of its Mo 50 in a press release: 5,900 euros, or from 89 euros per month in LLD (long-term rental) over 37 months, with a contribution of 900 euros (covered by the ecological bonus) and with 15,000 km included.
Original article from December 22, 2022 : After an interesting entry into the subject with its SEAT MÓ 125 – and a Performance version recently introduced – the manufacturer Seat is strengthening its offer of electric scooters with a brand new model: the SEAT MÓ 50, which, as its name suggests , belongs to the 50 cc category, we learn in a press release.
Visually, this version looks like two drops of water to its big brothers. Here, the Spanish manufacturer does not take any risks and plays it safe with a proven and successful aesthetic formula. However, 50 cc obliges, this model loses power and maximum speed.
Space under the saddle
Its 4 Wh motor offers a top speed of 45 km/h. Speed that the machine is able to achieve in just 3.8 seconds – it’s a great performance – thanks to its generous torque of 100 Nm and its Sport mode. In other words, this SEAT MÓ 50 could be an interesting ally for getting out of traffic at a red light.
Two other modes are offered: Sport and Eco, combined with a reverse gear supposed to simplify maneuvers. The weight of the vehicle is not indicated, but to offer a reverse gear on a 50 cc is a sufficiently rare fact to underline it. This is a feature that is not necessarily found in this category.
Another major asset: the space under the saddle. Seat claims a total of two helmets can be stowed underneath. Again, for a 50cc, it’s a small feat. This beautiful space is linked to the lateral positioning of the battery, when other scooters prefer to board it directly under the seat. It definitely takes up space.
The battery, precisely, opts for a capacity of 5.6 kW. Seat promises a range of 172 kilometers, probably obtained with the least powerful mode. It is difficult here to estimate a precise radius of action: only a full-scale test lasting several days will allow you to get a better idea.
Deliveries in the first quarter of 2023
On a domestic socket, charging oscillates between 6 and 8 hours. In other words, favor the night to fully recharge your scooter. There’s also talk of a rear shock, disc brakes, two USB ports and app compatibility. Again, the promise looks very nice considering the advanced elements.
We imagine that it is a scooter designed in collaboration with the Spanish manufacturer Silence which already provided the base of the 125 cc model. If Silence has many 50 cc in its catalog, the models are not at all similar to this SEAT MÓ 50.
Available in Barcelona Gray and Tarifa Blue, the SEAT MÓ 50 will be produced from January 2023, with deliveries taking place during the first quarter. At the time of writing these lines, no price list has been communicated by the Iberian brand.
