Designed for sharing. The e-Scooter concept was developed for all kinds of customers but is mainly geared towards motosharing. For this reason, sturdy materials were used, such as rubber on the side bumpers, and the parts were strategically located to make them easy to replace. The special form-fitting saddle has enough room beneath it for two helmets. To stay connected, it has two USB input sockets and a place to hold a mobile phone.
Fluorescent visibility ensures safety. Visibility was another key design aspect that was emphasised to enhance this shared vehicle concept. “We wanted it to be readily identifiable and focused on making a very iconic product. You park the scooter, walk away and remember it”, says Joan. The Color&Trim designers settled on black as the underlying colour of the entire concept, highlighted by fluorescent white on the most prominent parts. “We added this intense colour just to these iconic parts, and it also makes the e-Scooter concept highy visible to other drivers, so it provides added safety”, affirms Francesca.
Inspired by the auto industry. The latest technologies applied to new cars can also be seen in SEAT’ e-Scooter concept. It features a lighting system that wraps around the front and rear, and includes an innovation commonly seen on cars, but not motorcycles: “It’s equipped with dynamic turn signals, which today are staple components on cars, that we wanted to include on the scooter because they provide an unmistakeable indication and make an iconic statement as well”, says Joan.
