Silence helps the AA charge ahead with electric patrol concept
SOLIHULL, West Midlands 31st August 2021: Silence UK has partnered with motoring organisation the AA, to produce a concept all-electric ‘e-moto’ scooter, to support future mobility and breakdowns in ultra-low emission zones and urban environments.
The Silence concept scooter was designed for the AA with assistance work in mind and adapted to enable the necessary tools to be carried to get urban drivers back on the road quickly. The professional-grade Silence S02 was selected as the perfect urban business partner with its ability to cover up to 80 miles on a single charge and the highest weight carrying capabilities in the Silence family.
Gavin Franks, Business Services Director at the AA, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Silence UK to explore the concept of an e-moto scooter as a roadside assistance vehicle. 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.”
John Edwards, one of the founders of Silence UK, said: “We are excited to help the AA explore options for zero-emissions roadside support. They 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.”
