Charging ahead – Silence batteries just like new after 25,000 miles
Data released by Silence shows that the company’s ingenious portable batteries not only provide great performance for its range of ‘e-moto’ electric scooters, but they will also do this just as effectively after 25,000 miles!
An extensive durability assessment over three years studied data from real-world testing and heavy-use business customers in Spain, in varied journeys over 25,000 miles and more than 400 charge and discharge cycles.
Every Silence ‘e-moto’ scooter is powered by a unique, patented and proven lithium-ion battery system, which is completely portable thanks to a ‘click-and-go’ release and innovative trolley system and can be charged through any 240V socket.

TRANSALI for JUST EAT, Santiago de Compostela
Transali oversees the takeaway service for Just Eat in Santiago de Compostela. It has a total fleet of 15 Silence S02 scooters with some now passing the 30,000 miles marker. Juan Andrés, owner of Transali Compostela, states: “We are delighted with our Silence S02 scooters. Even after daily intensive use over more than 25,000 miles they retain their autonomy. Silence delivers on autonomy, performance, and savings.”
Transali is a great example of read-world durability testing with their e-moto scooters in non-stop daily use, each covering around 80km every day. And in an environment a little tougher than most, with the city of Santiago de Compostela’s climate being cold and wet for most of the year and its streets being mostly paving stones.
Designed, engineered and manufactured in Europe, the Silence family of ‘e-moto’ scooters are the perfect solution for the growing number of both individuals and companies looking for low-cost, high-quality and zero-emission urban transport.
The Silence DNA of reliable, zero-emission battery power, sharp Barcelona style and smart tech has already captured over 66% of the Spanish and 30% of the European electric scooter market, attracting over 21,000 customers across 25 countries.
Silence all-electric performance eliminates emissions, noise and vibrations and can reduce running costs to around £1 per 100 miles travelled – a massive 80% reduction compared to conventional alternatives.
A family of four Silence models is now available in the UK, priced from £2,695 OTR, each benefitting from a comprehensive warranty and roadside assistane package.
The first UK Silence flagship store will open its doors in quarter one of 2021. In the meantime, customers can contact the team to ask questions, book test rides or place orders via the Silence website www.silenceuk.com
