Spanish car maker SEAT is making its first foray into the micro-mobility market. It’s unveiled an electric scooter called the eXS. The scooter was designed by SEAT and features Segway’s electric technology. SEAT says it’s part of a strategic agreement reached with the U.S. mobility company Segway to respond to the growing demand for last-mile electric urban mobility.

The battery and engine combination enables it to travel up to 25km/h. An additional battery can be connected to increase its range, which reaches a maximum of 45km, depending on conditions. The kickscooter is going to make its first public appearance at the Smart City Expo World Congress being held in Barcelona from November 13th to 15th. Attendees will have the chance to take it for a test run.

In a press release, SEAT’s Product Marketing Director Lucas Casasnovas says:“We aim to make SEAT a benchmark in micro-mobility. In this sense our aim is to ensure that everyone who lives in an urban setting is familiar with the options offered by SEAT for getting around the city in an economical, sustainable, agile and fun way.”

The eXS will cost of €599 and will be available in Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Portugal before the end of the year, and in the rest of Europe in 2019.

  1. There generally is a large collection of quality cars, trucks,
    and SUVs to decide on from. Noise reduction appears to be the main objective in the redesigning in the
    interior in the Mariner. But, should they charge more, earn a fair living
    and, therefore, attract the top visitors to the work, less people will manage to afford to learn to drive therefore there will be more youngsters tempted from
    to the roads without the reasonable training.
