I thought I should do a comparison of electric scooters as they are becoming more and more popular. Firstly, I would recommend electric scooters over petrol/gas scooters because they are both quieter and easier to charge. There are many manufacturers of electric scooters. The oldest continuous company being Go-Ped. Go-Ped has recently released the PPV 20AH Electric Scooter which costs $3500 USD. This top of the range scooter can travel a distance of 22 miles (about 35 kilometres) and has a top speed of 25 mph (40 km/h). See video below on how fast it can go:
The other main competitors of Go-Ped are E-Twow and EcoReco. The best scooter that E-Twow sells is the S2 Master which can travel a maximum distance of 25 miles (40 km) and accelerates to 17 mph (28 km/h) and retails for $735 USD. The cost compared to the Go-Ped PPV 20AH is very cheap and it can travel the most distance compared to both other scooters. For this reason, I am planning on purchasing a scooter from E-Twow soon (I will take a few videos of how fast it can go when it arrives but below is a commercial for it):
The final scooter in this comparison is the M5 Air sold by EcoReco. It has a top speed of 20 mph (about 32 km/h) and can travel a distance of roughly the same as its speed (20 mph). It retails at $1100 USD so comes in as the 2nd cheapest out of the three scooters compared in this post. This is EcoReco‘s advertisement of the M5 Air.
As you can see below, the decision to purchase one scooter out of another depends whether you want to travel a longer distance or travel faster:
|Go-Ped PPV 20AH||22 miles (35 km)||25 mph (40 km/h)||$3500|
|E-Twow S2 Master||25 miles (40 km)||17 mph (28 km/h)||$735|
|EcoReco M5 Air||20 miles (32 km)||20 mph (32 km/h)||$1100|
