Razor E325

Razor builds some of the highest quality electric scooters

If you’re more than 15 years old, you’ve got to know Razor. They helped popularize the self-balancing scooter to a level unlike any other brand, and helped bring the travel format to the masses. Now, they’re making electric scooters, and they aren’t only for kids. The Razor R325 can go up to 15 miles per hour and allows for up to 40 minutes of continuous use. When you run out of battery on this thing, it still works great as a normal scooter, so you can always use leg power to finish getting where you need to go. If you’re just looking for something to commute to and from work, this is a great option.

If your office is more than 20 minutes away, we’d recommend you purchase an extra battery charger along with your scooter. You can purchase an additional one for only about $14, so you can always have extra battery power on the cheap.

Swagtron Swagger Electric ScooterSwagtron Swagger Electric Scooter

It’s hard to disregard Swagtron when we look at electric transportation. The company has slapped a battery and motor on almost every traditional mode possible and scooters are no exception. The Swagtron Swagger is made of ultra lightweight carbon fiber, and gives you quite a range for the price. The scooter aims for a max speed of 15 miles per hour and has a range of up to 15 miles per charge.

There is some extreme shock absorption built into this unit and the company is aiming to make sure this is going to be an incredibly comfortable ride. There is a spring built into the large front section, which should mitigate bumps quite a lot throughout your ride. There is also a small control panel on the top which will give you access to your battery life and speed, so you can get all your important information at a glance.

The Swagger folds up to store easily much like the other options on the market, so don’t worry about fitting it into tighter spaces. At only $279, this is quite the option, and we’d urge you to check it out before you make a purchasing decision.

Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter

Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter

The EcoSmart Metro scooter almost looks like an electric bike with its large size, big wheels, and wide handling, but since it lacks pedals it still classifies as a scooter. This option features an extra large deck to be able to place your feet on when riding, and even features a rack on the back of the scooter to attach a basket. This thing would be great for commuting to the store and back, as you’ll be able to store stuff in the back without weighing yourself down with a backpack.

The scooter has a max speed of 18 miles per hour and is rated to go 10 miles per charge. This isn’t quite as good as a lot of the other options available on the market, but is made for a much more specific use case. It weighs 67 pounds, so you won’t be carrying this thing in one arm, but will likely only be using it to commute to places where you can store it easily. It will also take 12 hours to charge this thing fully, so you won’t be able to get a very fast charge if you need some more power on the fly.

If you’re looking for a seated option that can help you lug some stuff around town, the EcoSmart Metro electric scooter is a great option.

Razor EcoSmart Metro key specs

  • Range: 10 miles (16 km)
  • Weight: 67 lb (30 kg)

Glion Dolly Electric Scooter

Glion Dolly Electric Scooter

While the Glion Dolly might not be the most advanced scooter on the market, it is definitely one of the most practical and most versatile. The standout feature of the Glion Dolly is its Dolly feature which is built right into the scooter itself. When folded up, you can pull out the handle which is built into the front and bring it around with you. While this isn’t an incredibly technically advanced feature, it can be very very useful when bringing it around places where you might not want to carry or ride it.

That’s not to say that this scooter isn’t great, however. The Glion Dolly has a top speed of to 15 miles per hour, and can go up to 15 miles on a single charge. The tires use a special airless system so you’ll likely never have to replace a flat. At just 28 lbs, the Glion is easy to handle, and should be a breeze to take with you wherever you go. The unit folds extremely quickly, and can go from open to closed and ready to go in just one second.

There is a headlight built into the unit as well, meaning you’ll be able to ride at night with little to no issue. With a rear reflector and pedestrian bell also built in, there’s noting a bike can do that this little thing can’t. Overall the Glion Dolly is a great option for those looking to get into the game, though it won’t come cheap. Check it out.

Inmotion Lively Electric Kick Scooter

Inmotion Lively Electric Kick Scooter

The Inmotion Lively Electric Kick is one of the more expensive kick-scooter options one the market, but man, do you get a lot for your money. The scooter features a huge 384Wh battery pack which fits very sleekly to the scooter itself, and it is barely bigger than a normal kick scooter. The Lively is rated for 25 miles, meaning you should be able to get around quite easily on this thing. There is a great cruise control system present on this scooter as well, so you can kick off and stay at a consistent speed for quite a while.

Whether you wanted it or not, Inmotion has included an app with this scooter as well. This can give you route recommendations, connect you with other owners, and allow you to check the status of your unit. The app should be able to tell you how much charge you have left in your scooter as well, so you’ll always know if you’re able to get home or not.

Since the scooter is IP65 water resistant you should be able to ride in the mist and the rain just fine. There is a brake light on the back of the unit too, so you should be fine to ride in just about any condition. This is definitely one of the best looking electric scooters we’ve found, so make sure to have a look.

Inmotion Lively key specs

  • Range: 25 miles (40 km)
  • Weight: 36 lb (16.5 kg)

Turbowheel Dart T9

Where’s the fun in a scooter if you can’t kick to get it moving? The Turbowheel Dart is a lightweight option that packs a ton of power, and can get up to crazy high speeds to boot. With a battery capacity of 661 Wh, you’ll be able to get around 30 miles of range out of this thing. This is an assisted kick scooter so you’ll still be kicking occasionally, but the scooter can reach a top speed of over 25 miles per hour, meaning you should be able to keep up with cars in most cities.

At around 39.5 pounds this isn’t exactly the lightest scooter around, but it also shouldn’t be impossible to carry up the stairs with you. You can take this thing on a bus just fine, since it folds up to be much more compact than many other models. This all comes at a cost, though.

At $998 you’ll need to have a decent amount of cash saved up, but it’s worth it if you’re traveling long distances fairly often. A note too, that eWheels offer the Turbowheel Dart as the evolution of the previously best-selling Speedway Mini 4 Pro, stating the Dart is just a better scooter in all facets, and therefore discontinued the Mini 4.

Turbowheel Dart key specs

  • Range: 30 miles (48 km)
  • Weight: 39.5 lb (18 kg)
  • Top speed: 25+ mph (40+ km/h)

EcoReco M5 Electric Scooter

EcoReco M5 Electric Scooter

The EcoReco M5 electric scooter is one of the most advanced ride options out there. It features an LED display on the handle bar which gives you the speed, battery status, odometer, trip distance, and total charge cycles in an instant. This is connected to a configurable anti-jerk feature which makes sure you only move when you want to. The scooter is made of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum, giving it a weight of only 36 lbs. This is a huge advantage of many of the bulkier options and helps you to carry this around when you’re not able to ride.

The EcoReco M5 can charge up to 80% in just two hours, giving you a quick boost when you need it. If you want to fill it completely, it’s going to take a bit longer, about four hours. If you’re charging this every night before your daily commute, however, this shouldn’t be much of an issue. Because this scooter is only 250w, EcoReco was able to keep it surprisingly thin. The motor can also use regenerative braking, meaning it will charge the unit while you’re braking to a stop at light or down hills.

If you’re looking for a light and beautifully crafted option, the EcoReco M5 electric scooter is worth a look.

EcoReco M5 key specs

  • Range: 20 miles (32 km)
  • Weight: 36 lb (16 kg)
  • Top speed: 20 mph (32 km/h)

Ford OjO Commuter Scooter

Need something a little more serious? The Ford OjO takes design to another level, which comes with both its pros and cons. It does look awesome and is sure to turn heads, which I noticed during my full review testing. It features a 20 mph top speed and a range of 25 miles. But the Ford OjO is not just about getting from point A to point B. It takes you there in style. 

It features a phone charger, phone dock, Bluetooth speakers, lights, rear view mirrors, and a comfy seat (which can be removed). Talk about traveling with style! Charging is super simple, as it has an included retractable cord. 

The Ford OjO won’t be cheap at $2,199, but it is one of the best out there. The only main downside (aside from the price) is that it is not fold-able and is very hard to carry around in a regular-sized car. It is also not light, so pray you don’t run out of battery somewhere with no power. 

Unfortunately, the OjO is out of stock. DGiT asked OjO for comment and the company stated, via email: “We no longer produce the Ford OjO but will hopefully have more OjOs in stock late this year.” Take that however you want.

Scrooser Pure Electric Scooter

Scrooser Pure Electric Scooter

If you want to go absolutely all out with your electric scooter experience, the Scrooser Pure might be for you. Styled like a beefed up Batmobile, the Scrooser pure features massive tires with a huge seat that will get you around with ease. You’ll be able to get 34 miles out of this thing in one charge, and you can charge it completely in only 2.5 hours. That is miles better than many of the other options on the market, but it won’t come cheap. The cheapest version of this scooter comes in at about $2745 USD, so you’re going to have to be willing to replace a cheap car with this thing if you really want to get into it.

There is an impulse motor built into the Scrooser Pure which will give you an extra boost when pushing with your legs. Once you reach 2.5 mph it will boost you for about 100 feet until you decide to push off again. There is also a small LED display which will show your speed and battery life, so you’ll always have information at a glance. If you get the street legal version of this thing it will have a mirror, red rear brake light, and LED front light.

If you need a small scooter that you can lug around with you, this isn’t going to work out well. This thing is much more like a Vespa, but it’s a super premium and great option to check out if you want something to commute a little faster and more efficiently.

Scrooser Pure key specs

  • Range: 34 miles (54 km)
  • Weight: 123 lb (56 kg)
  • Top speed: 15.5 mph (25 km/h)

Genze 2.0 Electric Scooter

This may be crossing the line a bit into the electric motorcycle field, but it is still a scooter and we thought adding something more serious to the list was important. This one you can take to run errands around the city, as it has a top speed of 30 mph, a carrying capacity of 295 pounds, and a range of up to 35 miles. 

The extra specs will cost you, though, as the Genze 2.0 is has a $3,699 starting price. With that you could get yourself an affordable motorcycle, but some people really like their electric vehicles! 

Genze 2.0 key specs

  • Range: 35 miles (56 km)
  • Weight: 232 lb (105 kg)
  • Top speed: 30 mph (48 km/h)
