Seagulls in Turkey, manufacturers of global electric scooters, such as birds and lime continues to take its place in the city began to move towards the production of electric scooters car manufacturers.
Until now, many car manufacturers, including BMW, VW, GM, Audi, Peugeot and Skoda, have focused on the production of electric scooters, electric motorcycles and electric bikes. SEAT recently announced the launch of its new electric scooter motorcycle and has taken its place among these brands.
SEAT's new 125 CC electric scooter is equipped with an 11 kW engine. The new electric motorcycle, which can reach 50 km in 3.8 seconds, allows you to travel at 100 km per hour. In addition, you can travel 115 km on a single charge. The engine, which can be easily used by two people, also includes a storage space for helmets under the seat.
Although SEAT has already tried to produce electric scooters such as Bird and Lime, this is the first step in the production of electric motorcycles. This unexpected step in SEAT reflects the vision of car manufacturers in urban travel recently on the agenda.
Sharing applications for motorcycles and electric scooters are on the rise
Consumers who prefer bicycles, engines and small vehicles to get rid of traffic in urban transport are of great interest to rental companies of electric scooters and motorcycles.
The Bounce India Electric Bike Rental Initiative announced last month that it has exceeded 2.1 million customers, while the Lime Electric Scooter Rental Initiative has expanded its operations to cover all continents. Similarly, apart from renting, let us add that consumers tend to buy scooters and personal electric bicycles.
While the future of driving is slowly moving towards scooters, bikes and electric motorcycles, it makes sense that automakers want to take a share of this new market.
Last year, GM introduced its electric bike and BMW's electric scooter. BMW could not meet the expectations of consumers with the scooter produced in the first stage, the BMW C Evolution electric maxiscooter was able to get in the eyes of users. The company is expected to launch a new BMW electric motorcycle in the future.
Audi 2-euro electric scooter Audi e-tron Scooter with a voice, while the Peugout is appreciated by consumers of the series of electric bikes stands out. The extraordinary models of Skoda & # 39; nın electric bicycles and scooters are on the agenda. While car manufacturers clearly show their interest in this new market, say that the car sharing companies act in this area.
Jump sees more attention than Uber tools
As you will remember, Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber, said that consumers prefer electric bikes and scooters to cars. In October 2018, Uber, who acquired the Jump Bike sharing initiative, launched the electric scooter and bike sharing operation under the Jump brand.
Jump began to be used in Sacremento as part of the operation and was able to attract more attention than Uber. According to the study, 53% of Uber users in the Sacremento area prefer Jump Bikes, while 47% of them opt for Uber vehicles. Uber wants to take advantage of this opportunity and launches scooter and e-bike sharing programs with strategic partnerships around the world.
At this point, it should be noted that not only Uber, but also the production-oriented automakers act with strategic partnerships. SEAT's new electric bike, for example, is a reorganized version of Silence's S01 electric motorcycle. SEAT's electric kickscooter is a partnership with Segway.
It is possible to state that car companies, which are forming partnerships to gain market share, will start producing bikes, motorcycles and electric scooters in their own production networks after being assured. the sustainability and profitability of the market.
