Matra’s E-Mo: the compact electric scooter for all


Corporate & other activities, CSR

Paris, July 28, 2009

Matra rises to the challenge of popularizing the electric scooter
Marketed by Matra under the E-Ton brand and available to holders of a BSR (French scooter permit) aged 14 and up, E-Mo will reduce their carbon footprint yet boost their purchasing power by 80% (compared to a 50-cc internal combustion engine). Service-, fuel- and noise-pollution-free, green transport has now become a reality: E-Mo runs at up to 45 kph with an optimum range of 40 km. Its battery has a carrying handle and recharges like a mobile phone – but in record time. E-Mo is so compact it can slip in anywhere, even on an elevator! E-Mo‘s dynamic lines – in four colour versions – make it the embodiment of more than just a scooter: it also represents a fresh lifestyle and a new fashion, one that’s eco-friendly to boot!


Matra’s E-Mo is available as of July 2009 in white, black, pistachio or raspberry, at a recommended retail price of €1,790 incl. VAT.
