Fleet news logo

The AA has expanded its partnership with urban eco-mobility organisation Silence UK to produce a concept electric ‘e-moto’ scooter.

The ‘e-moto’ scooter is set to support future mobility and breakdowns in ultra-low emission zones (ULEZ) and urban environments.

The concept scooter has been adapted to carry the necessary tools to get urban drivers back on the road quickly, said the AA.

Gavin Franks, business services director at the AA, said: “As an organisation, we are always striving to find innovative methods which will transform our service for many of our customers and enable us to evolve as the automotive landscape does.

“Through the use of Silence UK e-moto scooters we could potentially reduce our emissions and improve our roadside support service.”

The concept AA Silence UK e-moto scooter and its capabilities will be showcased at this year's Fleet and Mobility Live.

Delegates attending Fleet and Mobility Live will gain access to expert sessions offering vital insight on how to make the transition to electric vehicles (EVs).

John Edwards, one of the founders of Silence UK, said: “The AA have been our partner from day one, so this concept is a natural extension of our relationship.

“Our all-electric scooters are exceptional business tools, already playing key roles in fleets across Europe.

“We are really looking forward to seeing the difference they make to AA customers.”

Earlier this year, the AA developed a towing solution to cut the waiting time for EV and 4x4 drivers who require recovery.
