If you’re on the fence about electric scooters, this guide will help you decide if you should buy one.
Should you buy an electric scooter
Will an electric scooter work for my commute?
An electric scooter will almost certainly work for your commute if you have one under 12 miles or so. Keep in mind that the whole commute could be much longer if you end up using other forms of transportation.
The average electric scooter owner rides 7 miles per day and 4 days per week, according to our electric scooter owner use data. This suggests that this distance for commuting by electric scooter is very manageable for most.
Will I be happy with my electric scooter purchase?
Almost certainly. Nearly 90% of riders (representing 40 unique models from >15 manufacturers) reported 4/5 or 5/5 for satisfaction, with a mean score of 4.3/5.
Even if you randomly picked a scooter to buy, you’d probably be happy with it, though please don’t do that.
