There has been a recent rise in the popularity of electric scooters.
These are basically adult kick-scooters with a motor and battery
added. The speed of electric scooters ranges from below 10 mph to
over 30 mph. A convenient form of mobility, they often fold up and
are allowed on public transit. The noise level of an electric
scooter is relatively low, air pollution is nonexistent, and the electric
scooter provides easy acceleration and hill climbing. Power is
provided by rechargeable batteries, which usually take less than eight
hours to charge. Performance of electric scooters depends on a
number of factors including terrain, battery size, speed, wind conditions,
tire inflation, and weight of the rider. Quality of the electric
scooter also makes a difference, and cheap models and accessories should
Perhaps the two most well-known electric scooter designs are made by
Segway offers a sophisticated, self-balancing electric scooter that
is designed to help pedestrians go farther, travel more quickly, and
carry larger payloads. Priced much higher than Razors,
these Segway scooters can actually negotiate small obstacles.
Segway electric scooters are popular with police and private security
organizations, as well as other occupations where workers must walk
long distances to carry out their duties. Segway models can zip
along at speeds up to about 12 miles per hour.
Razor offers a line of economical electric scooters that are
designed for everyone from eight-year old children to adults. Some
models feature seats while others do not. Top speeds range from
about 10 mph to 15 mph, depending on the model. Weight limits also
vary by model. On a full battery charge, a Razor electric scooter
can often run for more than half an hour, perhaps 40 to 45 minutes.
These innovations suggest that the scooter is being accepted as a serious
mode of transportation rather than just a toy. As the price of fuel
continues to rise, it will be interesting to see whether electric scooters
evolve into alternative short-hop vehicles and find more commercial uses.
