The last mile delivery companies Ara Vinc and Jets, and also Pasmon, the Official Service of Silence in Barcelona, talk about their experience with the electric scooter Silence S02 and their vision about electric mobility.
Born to respond to the needs of business fleets. The S02 was the first electric scooter Silence to roll in the streets of all Europe. It is an efficient urban scooter, perfect for jobs that involve transporting packages, food and drink, or objects and tools. It combines incredible standard features with practical extras tailored to every need, whether for delivery professionals, mobility agents or police.
Witness this are the companies and professionals who have opted for Silence for carrying out their work activity. To know first hand their experience with the model S02, we talked with three of them: Pere Montserrat, from Pasmon, Official Service of Silence; Cristian Pujo, by Ara Vinc; and Manel Maqueda, Director of Jets.
“They are the future”
“Pasmon bet on the electric scooters Silence because it is an increasingly closer reality, which many people will bet on,” said Pere. Respect for the environment is one of the main values of the brand, which aims to improve the air quality of urban centers. “We wanted to do our bit for sustainable transport,” said Jets and Ara Vinc. An environmental opinion that has also been known to bring value to the company. “It’s also a good selling point in our industry. More and more companies are betting on ecological messaging” says Jets.
In large cities, companies and immediate logistics apps are more consolidated, expanding their number of professionals who travel the highways. As Ara Vinc explains, many customers value the environmental services they offer.
“The S02 offers a high stability”
The bike should not only be respectful of the environment, but also guarantee its use. The professionals of these companies use the scooters on a daily basis to move around the city. That is why the S02 model was designed with greater robustness and performance that imparted total reliability to its pilots, as requested by Jets. “The S02 offers us a high stability when it comes to transporting our packages.
And its agility when driving is decisive within the city. Without forgetting the regenerative brakes, that carrying weight are an important factor of quality”, comments Ara Vinc. This model provides great maneuverability and stability for its low mass center, as well as impressive braking in short spaces. It is supported by Jets:”There is no difference in driving with a gasoline scooter, beyond that it does not generate vibration or noise, which is appreciated. They are handled perfectly.”
Thanks to its electric nature, the S02’s “cool riding” is safer: no noise, no vibration or stress.
It should be noted the power output and the start, which, for Ara Vinc, provide stability in driving and professional activity. They depend on the scooter Silence when making their deliveries, and for that reason they took into account the consumption of the batteries and the autonomy.
The fact of having several driving configurations, such as LED lighting, guarantees to cover more than 100 kilometers at 80 km / hour. A power that can be arranged in an instant. “It allows us to work with them full-time, letting them recharge a bit during mealtime, without affecting the service,” says Jets, adding Ara Vinc that “expect the S02 interchangeable batteries to enjoy Unlimited energy “.
“The electric generates benefits in the medium term”
The energy consumption is linked to the pocket. If before filling the tank were about 10 euros of fuel, now are 0.50 euros of electricity. “Depending on the worker can save a total of 150 or 200 euros per month,” says Ara Vinc. A saving that balances the initial investment. Pasmon says: “Acquiring an electric vehicle is at first more expensive, but saving money on gasoline and vehicle maintenance generates benefits in the medium and long term.”
