How Fast Can An Electric Scooter Run?

With people's concern for green travel, electric scooters have become the first travel choice of more and more people. Using electric scooters to get around not only reduces the carbon consumption of our daily trips, but also brings us a lot of advantages.

How fast can an electric scooter go? This is the most common question people ask before buying an electric scooter.

Usually there is a limit to the maximum speed of an electric scooter, which in most European countries is 45km/h. This speed is already quite fast for people who ride in urban areas, and not only satisfies most people's daily commuting needs, but also allows us to save our own commuting time by travelling in a low-carbon way.

Generally, Kugoos electric scooters have three speed modes, low-speed mode, medium-speed mode, and high-speed mode.

Different models of electric scooters are equipped with different capacity batteries and different power motors, so their maximum speed is different. People use electric scooters for many purposes. Most of them use electric scooters to support their daily commuting, or to experience the fun of riding. It is valuable to know which electric scooters are best for them.

Whether you are a complete beginner or a veteran who often rides electric scooters, this is what you need to know so that you can enjoy an unforgettable riding experience and finally make a plan for you to buy a suitable electric scooter.

Classification of electric scooters:

Electric scooters can be classified according to the number of motors: single-motor electric scooters, dual-motor electric scooters.

Single-motor electric scooters are electric scooters with only one motor (less than 800W), which are usually not very powerful and are more suitable for riders for daily commuting and non-distance riding.

Dual motor scooters are electric scooters with two motors (above 1000W), which are usually more powerful and are more suitable for riders who want to climb hills or ride long distances on mountain roads.

Now About The Speed:

What does the motor do for you?

When we pick an electric scooter, we can be torn when it comes to choosing the specifications of the motor, especially for those who have never been exposed to electric scooters before, they may not even be able to understand a range of parameters. In turn, it is taken for granted that the more power an electric scooter has, the faster it will be when riding.

In fact, it is not only the power of the motor that affects our riding speed, but also our own weight, the battery capacity of the scooter, the road conditions and so on.

Battery capacity and range

Kugoo electric scooters are powered by lithium battery packs. Watt-hour is a method of measuring the battery capacity of an electric scooter. You can use the calculation of watt-hours to determine your expectations for electric scooters.

Calculating watt-hours is very simple and fast. Don't worry, you don't need to be a math expert. We need to multiply the voltage by the ampere-hours of the battery pack. Suppose it is a 36 volt and 10 ampere hour battery pack (36V×10Ah=360Wh).

The number of Watt-hours will determine the battery capacity and range of your electric scooter and it is a very important aspect to consider when buying an electric scooter.

Type of terrain

Electric scooters are popular all over the world because they are so flexible and you can find a specific model to meet your needs. Whether it's for commuting, leisure or to assist you on a mountain ride, you've found an electric scooter to suit all your needs.

Rough trails: Off-road electric scooters

As with any conventional scooter on the market, you can even find electric scooters designed for mountainous terrain. Adding a powerful motor to a high-performance mountain scooter may give all enthusiasts the adrenaline, help and speed they need. Electric scooters can help you conquer rugged trails faster and with more ferocity.

Leisure commuting: Any electric scooter

There are probably many people who simply want their e-scooter for commuting or even for weekend rides. Whether you want to use your e-scooter to avoid sweat and fatigue on your daily commute to and from work, or just for weekend rides with the family, e-scooters will make your life easier.

Riding an electric scooter can make you feel more fun in life, but only if you choose the right electric scooter for your weight. Remember to write down your weight and pick the best electric scooter for your weight.

Customer question:

  • How much does the battery in our electric scooters discharge in a single run?

Most of the electric scooters you can find on the market are powered by lithium-ion batteries. They are durable and reliable and can support up to 500 charge cycles, after which the battery will hold up to 80% of its original charge. One way to extend the life of your battery is to charge it properly and maintain it regularly.

  • What is the distance you can travel on a single charge?

The answer will depend on how you use your electric scooter. The exact distance you can ride is related to whether you ride in low, medium or high speed mode, but it is usually within the rated range.

  • How fast can an electric scooter go?

Governments around the world have different limits on the speed at which you can ride an electric scooter.
