A great team making a dream come true: improving your life and your city.
From Barcelona with love
Silence was born in Barcelona and is dedicated to the design and manufacture of two and three-wheel electric vehicles as well as their batteries. Led by founder and CEO Carlos Sotelo, it is the biggest specialist EV manufacturer in Europe and the only electric motorcycle manufacturer in the region to manufacture its own batteries. Silence has a factory in Molins de Rei, Sant Boi and an R&D Center in Esplugues de Llobregat.
Carlos has always been surrounded by two-wheeled vehicles, both professionally and as a hobby. He is so passionate about motorbikes that he has competed in the Paris Dakar rally on several occasions. That is where he discovered the value of time and the peace that comes from the absolute silence of the desert. This is where the brand of electric scooters he created gets its name: Silence
Silence has the support of three key shareholders:
Repsol, La Caixa and the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).
Silence UK is a new venture formed to bring the all-electric smart motor scooter to UK travellers and businesses.
Founded by four British business leaders, combining automotive, retail and technology expertise, Silence UK will extend the Barcelona-based Silence brand into the rapidly expanding UK electric two-wheel market.
The first in a number of UK flagship Silence stores will launch early 2021, details to be announced soon.
“The UK transportation market is changing at an unprecedented pace; the launch of the Silence family of class-leading electric moto scooters meets the demands of consumers and companies on so many levels.
The Silence brand is cool, the products are even cooler – simple, smart, clean and beautifully designed. We’re excited about bringing Silence to Britain, delivering class-leading products and providing a class-leading ownership experience to a new family of customers.”

Founding partners of Silence UK include John Edwards, Tony Lewis, Kevin Duck and Mike Rose.
Right idea, right now – bringing Silence to the UK
Two-wheel transportation is on the rise in Britain and it’s undergoing an electric revolution.
This growth is due to shifts in consumer attitudes and regulation, particularly in urban areas. More and more individual commuters want to avoid the cost, congestion and environmental impact of travelling by car. And local authorities are introducing Clean Air Zones, car-free areas and other measures to improve urban air quality.
And of course, the year 2020 changed a lot about how we work. Wary urban travellers are looking to stay away from the packed bus or train.
All this is accelerating demand for smaller, affordable electric vehicles. Silence meets that demand head-on, with the latest in EV design and technology, backed by a leading manufacturer.
