Best Longest Range Electric Scooters
Range alone doesn’t make a great electric scooter. Below, we highlight the best long-range scooters from our range leaderboard, excluding models that underperformed or are no longer available.
NAMI Burn-E: Longest Range Electric Scooter And Undisputed Range King
The NAMI Burn-E has the longest range of any electric scooter we’ve tested — a formidable 53.3 miles.
In addition to having the longest range, the Burn-E (codenamed Viper), also broke numerous performance and is the quickest electric scooter we’ve ever tested.
The Burn-E is the first scooter to dethrone the EMOVE Cruiser, the previous range champion. The Burn-E is quickly becoming one of the favorite scooters of the ESG team thanks to its next-level suspension, fantastic performance, and seemingly endless range. It ticks all the boxes in terms of ride quality, build quality, features, and performance (for those looking for a monster scooter).
Its exoskeleton-like hand welded frame, carbon fiber stem and hydraulic suspension try to answer critics who scoff at its $4,499 price tag.
EMOVE Cruiser: Feature-Packed Commuter Ends Range Anxiety
This is the scooter that you are tired of everyone telling you to buy.
Though it no longer holds the crown for longest-ranged scooter in the world, the EMOVE Cruiser still remains one of the best.
Its sweet ride quality thanks to dual suspension, large pneumatic tires, and giant deck make it a sensible daily commuter.
You simply can’t go further or more comfortably at this price.
Inokim OXO: Exotic Scooter Can Go The Distance
The OXO was somewhat frustrating due to lackluster throttle response and a plastic deck that is indeed slippery when wet.
Features like a single-sided swingarm, a very comfortable thumb throttle, hydraulic brakes, and high-mounted lights help sweeten the deal.
Ultimately, the OXO is not a scooter for bargain-hunters but those who are looking for quality ride with an innovative (and generally rider-friendly) design.
Kaabo Mantis Pro
Kaabo Mantis Pro: Lightweight Powerhouse Goes 33.7 miles
Though growing somewhat long in the tooth, the (relatively) svelte Mantis Pro has maintained its dominance as a lighter, still fierce, dual-motor beast scooter. It is a direct competitor to pricier Dualtron models such as the Spider that are favored by riders looking for lighter beast scooters.
When it first arrived on the market, it was an unbeatable performance value. Despite arrival of newer scooters, it still remains competitive thanks to its tested 33.7-mile range, 37.0 mph top speed, Minimotors EY3 throttle, and fully-hydraulic brakes.
Kaabo Wolf King
Kaabo Wolf King: The King Has Stamina
Not only is the Wolf King the fastest scooter we’ve ever tested, with a recorded top speed of 59.4 mph, it also has stamina. The King marked its spot on the range leaderboard by achieving a final distance of 33.4 miles.
There is a lot to love about the Wolf King. Though not cheap, we think $2,999 is a tremendous value for one of the best scooters out there.
Minimotors Dualtron Eagle Pro
Dualtron Eagle Pro
The Eagle Pro’s simple, elegant, yet effective rubber suspension combined with dual motors supply 1800 watts of power landed it a spot as one of this year’s best electric scooters.
Minimotors once represented the best quality in the industry, but newer, cheaper, and frankly better scooters are proving fierce competition.
EMOVE RoadRunner: Longest Range Seated Electric Scooter
The EMOVE RoadRunner is the longest-ranged seated electric scooter we’ve ever tested.
Though shipping officially in Summer ’21, we were able to get our hands on a pre-release version of the RoadRunner and scored a respectable 30.8 miles during our range test.
In addition to range, the RoadRunner is no slouch when it comes to performance — clocking an impressive 30.8 mph top speed and 0 to 25 mph of 10.7 seconds.
The built-in seat, thumb throttle, bicycle-sized 14.0-inch tires make this seated scooter supremely comfortable when you want to go the distance.
Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11
Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11: Classic Beast Delivers All-You-Can Eat Range
Its ESG-tested 30.2-mile range secures it a spot as one of the best long range electric scooters.
This 101-pound scooter is rock solid with one of the sturdiest, zero-wobble stems in the game. The 11.0-inch air-filled tires and dual suspension (including a hydraulic fork) give this scooter next-level ride quality.
Sure, there are newer and shinier variants like the Wolf King that eek out more range, but classic Warrior 11 holds its own a very capable long-range scooter.
Apollo Phantom Ludicrous (60V)
Apollo Phantom Ludicrous (60V)
Its larger, 1260 wh battery has elevated the respectable 28.4 mile range of the 52 V Phantom to place-deserving 28.5 miles. Equipped with beefed-up controllers, the Phantom Ludo also earned a spot as one of the fastest electric scooters.
Apollo fanatics will have to wait just a bit longer to get their hands on this machine, but its Summer 2021 release will be well worth it for many.
Apollo Explore: Swiss Army Knife of Electric Scooters
The Explore is the Swiss Army Knife of electric scooters — balanced, affordable, great for many uses and different rider types.
Despite rounding out the bottom of the range leaderboard, it still delivered a marathon-like 28.1 miles of range.
Though the ESG team thinks of this scooter as a fairly tame and practical commuter, most riders will find that it has more than enough speed and acceleration to be fun. Its array of practical features, comfortable deck size and build quality (typically including a 2-year Apollo warranty — though check details from your particular retailer) really mean that no one could go wrong buying this scooter.
Perhaps not the most exciting scooter out there, sometimes the “boring” choice is the one that will put the biggest smile on your face. And keep some money in your pocketbook.
At the typical $1,299 MSRP the Explore is a bargain, but if you can score an additional coupon (check ours) or catch it on sale, it’s an absolute steal.
Segway Ninebot Max
Segway Ninebot Max
You know the electric scooter leaderboard is strong when the shortest-ranged scooter is the venerable Ninebot Max that delivered a not-so-small 28.1-mile range.
The Ninebot Max has received more accolades than nearly any other scooter in existence. It’s no surprise that it landed a spot as one of the best long range scooters out there.
It is as reliable as a hammer, has unstoppable pneumatic tires, and was even used by Graham Pollard and Co. to complete a 4,000 mile electric scooter journey across America. Few scooters would survive that trip.
Range Testing Methodology
We range test every electric scooter under standardized conditions to allow fair comparisons between scooters. Our methods are devised to give conservative range estimates. Most owners will find that their scooter’s range, during typical use, exceeds what we record.
Only those doing prolonged top speed runs or other extreme riding will find they get shorter range than we measure.
Our test track is located in Berkeley, California, USA and consists of a 2 mile loop in dense suburbs with 102 ft of elevation change and 7 stops.
- 165 lb rider
- Scooter ridden as fast as safely possible in the fastest, least energy-conserving mode.
- Typical average 15 mph to 20 mph, when moving
