The Best Electric Scooter
Updated Dec 11, 2022
An electric scooter can be a fast and fun mode of transportation—as long as your route isn’t too hilly, you’re comfortable riding in traffic, and you’re riding safely and considerately. (After all, in many cities fleets of electric rental scooters have at times been sidewalk-blocking nuisances.) In fall 2019, every electric scooter we tested had a dealbreaking downside. Thankfully the options have gotten better, and three models from Segway Ninebot have earned our recommendation, with the Segway Ninebot KickScooter Max G30LP being the best option for most people. It provides a reliable way to get around, especially during a pandemic, when many people may want to avoid public transit.
