No matter where you live you have most likely seen those little scooters that kids ride around in, where they push off the ground to gather speed and try to do little tricks, and at one point thought that it would be neat to buy your kids one, heck even buy one for yourself.
Now the electric scooter is a little more advanced than the one you push to get it moving. Electric scooters actually have a motor so all you have to do is stand on it and get up to some pretty fast speeds. When using an electric scooter as a form of transportation you can sleep easy knowing that you are not leaving a carbon footprint behind like some other scooter that use gas as a form of energy. Another great thing about electric scooter are that they can be used by kids and adults, they cost relatively cheap and can even help reduce the cost of the public transportation that you might be paying for currently.
Below are 10 different electric scooters for sale that you can research to try and find the right one just for you and your family. All of them have differences that make each unique, so be sure to read carefully and do some additional research if you find one that you like.
E-WHEELS IN MOTION L6
The L6 electric scooter is able to travel around 15.5 miles per hour which is plenty fast, most people sprinting at their top speed can’t even go that fast. This electric scooter is also the number one on this list for the distance you can travel until you need to recharge your battery. You can go roughly 25 miles until needing a boost. The L6 comes with nice sized 8’’ rims that allows for a comfortable ride, and can even hold up to 220lbs. Most of the reviews on the L6 say that this scooter is actually one of the better looking scooters on the market, and with its cruise control ability you just have to steer while you drive to your destination.
Obviously just like all the other scooters in this list the Swagtron is powered by electricity. It has a carbon fiber frame, meaning this scooter is very durable but also light, weighing in at only 17 pounds. For a scooter that weighs so little you wouldn’t expect the Swagtron to be able to carry up to an amazing 300 pounds. And like the name suggests this scooter has swag with a backlit LED display so you can monitor your speed while you drive. This scooter like many of the others comes in a variety of colors to suit the needs of both boys and girls.
The Dolly scooter also features 8’’ tires, but these tires are specifically made to never get flat. This means you can drive long distances without fear of running over something sharp and end up being stranded on the side of the road. At speeds of 15 miles per hour it is right on par with the rest of the scooters on this list although its travel distance until it needs a charge is slightly low at about 15 miles.
Not much special about the E100, it’s primarily only for children seeing that the weight limit is 120 pounds. Now it does still travel at 10 miles per hour so if your child is riding the E100 we advise that they wear a helmet. The battery life in the E100 isn’t anything special either, running for about 40 minutes until it needs to recharge. Remember though this is for a child, not someone who is going to be traveling to work on a daily basis.
RAZOR POCKET MOD EURO
The Euro is a relatively cheap scooter that you actually sit down in while you drive it. This scooter has more of an old school feel and design to it carrying weights of about 170 pounds this scooter is made for people over the age of 12. This scooter does have the largest wheel on this list at 12’’ which means if you are looking for a scooter with a very smooth drive then this is the one for you. The battery life isn’t the greatest but the scooter does travel at 15 miles per hour and a 40-minute charge. One unique item on this scooter is that the seat is also a storage device for anything you might be carrying.
The hornet is the most waterproof of the scooters mentioned so far, this doesn’t mean you should be driving around in puddles or anything, but taking it out when there is a light rain should be okay. The whole entire scooter only weighs about 20 pounds which means it would be very easy to pick up and carry in crowded places. Just like most of the other scooters this travels at 15.5 miles per hour and can last up to 20-25 miles. For such a light scooter it’s still able to carry up to 220 pounds at a time.
Much like the E100 stated above the E300 can travel a bit faster, topping in at 15 miles per hour and being able to travel for 40 minutes before needing a charge. These scooters are chain driven scooters which allows you to be able to fix them easier should anything go wrong. The E100 could hold 120 pounds but the E300 is able to hold 220 pounds, almost twice as much.
The Inmotion scooter is another scooter that does well in the rain, again you don’t want to be driving this is puddles or hurricane season, but if it is raining outside a bit then this scooter should be good to go. At speeds of 15.5 miles per hour and a range of about 20-25 miles this scooter will get you from place to place without much trouble. The Inmotion is able to fold up which makes it easy to take with you if you end up needing to go up some stairs or a steep hill. This scooter also comes with 8’’ tires and cruise control. Another feature of this scooter is that it has Bluetooth attached to it, allowing you to sync it to your phone.
The uberscoot is by far the fastest scooters on this list, and because of that it is meant for people 12 years and older. This scooter gets up to speeds of 26 Miles per hour, and you are advised to wear a helmet when riding. On a full charge you should be able to travel a distance of around 10 miles. The Uberscoot has a good weight limit as well, being able to carry 265 pounds. Because of its speed this scooter comes with fairly large 10’’ tires to make your ride as smooth as possible.
The Eco Reco M5 is one of the stronger scooters on the list, being able to carry a person weighing in at about 280 pounds. The M5 is also a pretty fat scooter and can travel 20 miles per hours and has a full battery life of 20 miles before you would need to recharge. Because it’s able to carry so much weight you probably won’t be folding it up and throwing it over your shoulders, The M5 weighs almost 50 pounds.
As you can see, there are many electric scooters to choose from. All of them have different designs, battery life, and travel distance. Looking more in depth at each of these scooter will give you a better idea of which one will be best for your needs. The huge benefit for some individuals is that you absolutely do not need a license to drive one. Cars can be very expensive and are actually a hassle and taking the public transit for some people can be an even bigger hassle, especially with how crowded busses and trains are lately. If you only work a short distance away, an electric scooter is a great investment to make.
