This guide will walk you through the very best long range electric scooters, Best mileage electric scooter and long range electric scooter with seat. All you need to do is decide how much mileage you’d like. So, to make it as simple as possible, I’ve split the electric scooters into 5 categories by distance (miles): 30+, 25-30, 20-25, 15-20 and 10-15.
Every year there are more and more electric scooter companies creating their own electric scooters. This is great because it means there are more options for us consumers, but it also means you have to do your research to make sure you’re buying the best long range electric scooter out there. I’ve given you links below to my other blog posts that will help you get started on your search for the best electric scooter for your needs. For now, let’s focus on getting to 30+ miles of range.

Best mileage electric scooter
1. Wolf Warrior
If you want a scooter that has the raw power to keep up with fast moving traffic (50 mph) and a model you can rely on to get you to your destination and back again, and still have juice left to do it all over the next day (80 miles), then the Wolf Warrior is the best long range electric scooter for you.
As badass as its name, the Wolf Warrior’s abundantly large LG battery delivers enough power so you can ride continuously for 80 miles on a single charge.
At first I couldn’t believe the amount of power that this beast puts out, it will let you enjoy mile after mile after mile to your heart’s content.
To shine some light on how impressive this mileage is, all of the electric scooters that I have reviewed in the past range from about 10 to 20 miles. The Wolf Warrior’s battery life is about quintuple this.
Whether you want to go for a long cross-country adventure, for your daily commute or maybe just a ride across the boardwalk on a Sunday afternoon, you can rely on the Wolf Warrior to get you to your destination and back again, and still have juice left to do it all over the next day.
Given its impressive range, the Wolf also exceeds any other scooter I have reviewed for speed. It’s hard to put the power of the Wolf Warrior into words but if you’ve ever seen a drag race between two highly tuned sports cars then that is what you can expect. The acceleration so rapid that you can even spin the tires as you turn the throttle.
Riding the Wolf Warrior at its max power will propel you at a staggering 50 mph.
With the chart topping mileage and top speed, the Wolf needs at least 7-8 hours charging time, and to be honest, this is also quite impressive. Some of the well known Razor electric scooters can take 12 hours to charge and can only be ridden for a max of 10 miles. Similarly, some other models need less time to charge, generally between 3-4 hours, and deliver enough power for 12-15 miles.
The point I am trying to make is that the Wolf Warrior has pound for pound, the best battery in the game. After all, it was designed and manufactured by LG, the multinational electronics company.
Some fun things to know about the Wolf are that you can choose the type of tires you want installed. You can choose from off-road or street grade to suit your riding style. Both sets of tires have a three-dimensional tread pattern that improves traction on all surfaces and the airless design means you’ll never get a flat tire.
Thanks to the incredible power from the motor, the torque is enough to get the Wolf up and over a 45-degree incline which, to put that into perspective, is steeper than any street in San Francisco.
To make the scooter even more enjoyable to ride, it also has motorcycle grade hydraulic suspension that absorbs the smallest, all the way up to the biggest, imperfections in the ground below to make your riding experience as comfortable as possible.
With such an astonishing top speed, comes risk, and with risk comes the need for safety. So, imagine you are flying down the road at 50 mph and you need to come to a quick stop, you want to be confident that your scooter will slow down in a safe manner.
Well, the Wolf has been fitted with full hydraulic brakes that are far more efficient at slowing you down than the widely used mechanical disc brakes.
The safety precautions don’t stop there though, it also has an anti-lock braking system that stops the wheels from locking up and skidding as you brake. This kind of technology has existed on larger personal transportation devices, like cars, for years.
And finally, this beast has large ultra- bright LEDs that illuminate the path ahead, as well as lights on the side and rear to ensure your visibility.
If you want a scooter that has the raw power to keep up with fast moving traffic and a model you can rely on to get you to your destination and back again, and still have juice left to do it all over the next day, then the Wolf Warrior is the best long range electric scooter for you.
1. Segway Ninebot ES4
Segway Ninebot ES4
Winner of the iF Design Awards, the Segway Ninebot ES4 boasts a wide range of impressive features that make this scooter one of the best long range models that you can buy. With a range of 28 miles, a top speed of 18.6 mph and cruise control that makes long rides comfortable, you’ll have an instant smile on your face as you hop on ride it.SEE SCOOTER
If you want to experience power, range and a reel of exciting features then keep reading.
The combination of the internal and external lithium ion batteries gives the Segway Ninebot ES4 an impressive range of up to 28 miles and the power to climb up 15-degree inclines.
Segway are well known for their premium personal transportation devices and the ES4 comes with 18 years of experience so you can be sure that you are choosing a long range electric scooter that has been meticulously designed.
The years of experience just goes to show with the attentive design of the battery which will not overheat or short circuit and also has over-current and over-charge protection to ensure that it lasts the test of time and can be charged and re-charged over and over. (It takes 7 hours to fully charge).
It is the attention to detail that makes the Segway Ninebot ES4 one of the best electric scooters on the market, evident from its iF Design Award.
So, what else makes this scooter stand out from the rest, aside from its mileage? I’m glad you asked. Strap in.
Firstly, let me ask you a question. Do you like smiling?
Yes, of course you do!
Well, as soon as you open the box and unwrap the Ninebot ES4 you are going to have a smile on your face stretching from one ear to the other. The elegantly designed scooter has a seamless dark grey finish, a built-in LED display and customizable rear and side lights to suit your style.
Imagine you are out riding on your brand new electric scooters down the boardwalk or city streets and you flip a switch to maintain a constant speed without the use of the accelerator. That would be pretty cool, right?
No need to imagine it, you can actually do it! Thanks to the cruise control option you can ride in comfort. Simply accelerate to your desired speed, flip the switch and let the scooter do all the hard work for you.
While we are on the topic of speed, the Segway Ninebot ES4 is also one of the fastest street grade electric scooters with two core riding modes, including standard and sport mode. Sport mode will see you reach a top speed of 18.6 mph.
But fear not, you’ll also be able to quickly slow down (if you need to), thanks to the combination of the anti-lock electric brake system and mechanical brake. Tests show that you’ll be able to stop within 13 feet when travelling at a speed of 12.4 mph.
Planning to use your scooter for a long commute?
You’ll be glad to know that it only weighs 30.9 lbs and has a super simple folding frame which takes only a matter of seconds to fold the scooter in half, making extremely portable and great for storage. To paint the picture of how compact it is when folded, here are the dimensions: 45x17x16 in. I know you’ve probably looked at those and thought: ‘Cool…I don’t know how big that is’. Let me clear this up for you, it is small enough to fit under your desk at work, in the trunk of your car or even tucked away in your wardrobe.
With an array of advanced features, powerful battery and delightful design, the Segway Ninebot ES4 won’t just let you enjoy long range rides but will turn heads while you do it.
1. Boosted Rev
Boosted Rev empowers you to move across your cities, campus, and community in a way that is fun, fast (24 mph), and simple. You can do all that for 22 miles on a single 3 hour charge.SEE SCOOTER
Quite possibly one of the best ever electric scooters on the market.
The Boosted Rev empowers people, like you, everywhere to move across their cities, campuses, and communities in a way that is fun, fast, and simple. Oh, and you can do all that for 22 miles on a single 3 hour charge. Pretty impressive, right?
You’ll get tired before the scooter does!
Like a car, the Boosted Rev features dual wheel drive that get you from 0-20 mph in 4.1 seconds. That isn’t the top speed though…roll the throttle to the max and you’ll reach a top speed of 24 mph that not only lets you accelerate up to the flow of traffic but lets you carve your way through it.
What speed you go is totally up to you. You can choose from three riding modes, the first will let you glide along at 12 mph (ideal if you are new to scooting), the second picks up speed to 18 mph and finally, as discussed above, the third gear hits the top speed of 24 mph.
With the powerful acceleration comes more benefits. If you live in San Francisco, you’re going to love this next part. Even if you don’t live in the city by the bay you’re still going to love it. So, here we go: you’ll be able to power up pretty much any hill you want with ease. Boosted Rev can scale 25-degree inclines, the equivalent to steep San Francisco hills.
Why is this so good? Well, for a start, it means you can wave goodbye to sweaty commutes as you struggle to climb up steep inclines and, best of all, it means that you’re limited by the lay of the land. You can ride this scooter within the radius of 22 miles from your location.
Unlike all the other electric scooters that I have reviewed, the Boosted Rev has the most unique throttle. Usually throttles come in two shapes, the first comes in the form of a twist grip (like the ones you see on motorcycles), the second are levers / buttons that you push down to engage the motors to accelerate. The Boosted Rev, on the other hand, has a wheel that you roll your thumb across. Roll it to the left and you’ll go faster, roll it to the right and you’ll slow down.
Being able to easily control your speed is a given but being aware of how fast you are going is a luxury. The simple LED interface sitting in the center of the handlebars displays your speed, range and battery level. Everything you need in one place, especially for long commutes.
That’s not all though. You can also control the ultra-bright headlights from the display.
Like the majority of the other electric scooters that I’ve reviewed, the Boosted Rev folds with a one touch folding system.
So, I’ve covered pretty much all of the fun stuff but what about your safety? After all, you want to be confident that you can ride safely, especially on a long range adventure.
First up is the wide custom designed tires that give the Rev enough traction to stop the scooter from slipping or skidding. Thanks to their high profile (9 inches) they also have the capacity to absorb harsh road conditions below to create a smooth riding experience.
Secondly, is the rear fender light and extremely right lumen headlight that gives you both you optimal visibility while riding at night and indicates to others clearly where you are.
Third and final is the braking system. There’s not one or two, but three ways to brake. The combination of electric braking, a mechanical disc brake, and rear fender brake makes the braking power of the Boosted Rev superior to any other electric scooter.
Oh, and one bonus safety feature is the lockable frame. Boosted Rev realize that sometimes we may need to leave our scooters on the street, just like we do with bikes. They designed the frame with this in mind to let you simply wrap one side of your lock around the metal frame of the scooter and the other around a bike rack to secure your prized scooter.
Is there anything else this scooters got that I should know about?
Of course there is, let me show you.
Rain. It’s annoying isn’t it?
What if the Boosted Rev was waterproof, that would be cool, right?
You guessed it, the Rev is waterproof.
The level of protection against water is beyond impressive. The majority of electric scooters that claim to be waterproof often have the IP54 rating which can be defined as protection from water spray from any direction. The Boosted Rev has an IPX7 rating, this means that it is protected from accidental submersion in 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes!
Now, that doesn’t mean you should test to see if you can ride the scooter underwater like a technologically advanced deep sea diver, but instead be confident that if you need to roll through a few puddles here and there, your scooter will make light work of them without having any damage inflicted.
The Boosted Rev is one of the best long range electric scooters that you can buy. The combination of the impressive 22 mile range and a top speed of 24 mph, as well as the integrated app that lets you monitor and control your scooter through your phone and, if you have one, Apple watch, will satisfy your every need.
1. WideWheel Dual
A great choice if you want to take advantage of high speeds (25 mph) and long ranges (20 miles) while enjoying the luxury of a comfortable riding experience as the big wheels and suspension soaks up imperfections from the surface belowSEE SCOOTER
Maybe you like the idea of being able to go on a long range ride but don’t want to splash the cash…or at least as much cash as what the Boosted Rev costs. I’ve got you covered.
Coming in at $600 cheaper and only 2 miles short of the Boosted Rev, the WideWheel Dual will carry you for up to 20 miles on a single charge.
The highly efficient lithium-ion battery delivers a strong but smooth acceleration that can reach up to 25 mph on flat terrain and climb up steep hills. You can even get live updates on your batteries performance from the display panel on the scooter’s handlebars, letting you monitor the overall battery health.
Why is that important?
Well, it means that at all times you will be aware of how much battery power you have left. You don’t want to get halfway through a long range ride to realize that you have only 10% battery power left! It also helps you to monitor the charging status of your battery.
Like my old math teacher used to say: ‘If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail’.
Essentially, the point I am trying to make is that the addition of being able to monitor the health of the battery pays off, especially when you are planning to go on a long ride.
Similar to the Boosted Rev, the WideWheel Dual also have wide tires, hence the name. In fact, the tires are 4 inches wide and 8 inches high, both of which play to your advantage.
They give you increased traction, which means a more stable ride.
They help you to overcome irregular terrain and obstacles, and even tackle off-road terrain, which means you can wave goodbye to the roads and go on a cross-country adventure.
And, the combination of the thick tires with the uniquely designed front and rear suspension systems take care of your wrists, legs, pretty much your whole body as they absorb shock the ground blow. This makes for a comfortable riding experience, which is vital for long ranges.
One thing that can be quite easily overlooked when choosing a long range electric scooter is how robust it is. You can think about this like a car. Imagine you’ve bought a second hand car that has been haphazardly built and you need to travel 50 miles a day to get to work and back. After a while, the shoddy build and wear and tear on the car will lead it to fail, maybe even breakdown mid-way through your commute. You don’t want this when you are picking an electric scooter.
Instead, you want a scooter that is going to last the test of time. The WideWheel will do just that.
The scooter was formed by cutting edge casting method which in plain old English means that it has no welding.
The reason why this is so good is because it lends itself to being structural strong and therefore, delivers high durability as well as looking seamless.
While we are on the topic of looks, the uniquely shaped deck, wide mud guards, collapsible frame / handlebars and charcoal grey paint finish give the WideWheel a modern and sophisticated aesthetic that is a pleasure to look at.
It’s not all about looks though. How the WideWheel fairs with safety is also an important consideration.
It doesn’t have as many as three braking systems as the Boosted Rev, but then again the majority of scooters don’t. Instead, what it does have is a rear disc brake which will safely slow the scooter down. And, if you want to ride at night it is LED lights at the front and rear to keep you visible in low light.
In terms of security, it needs a key to be operated which means someone won’t be able to hop on your scooter and drive away while you are in the shop picking up groceries.
Overall, the WideWheel is a great choice if you want to spend a little less but still want to take advantage of high speeds and long ranges while enjoying the luxury of a comfortable riding experience as the big wheels and suspension soaks up imperfections from the surface below.

1. Unagi Model One
Unagi Model One
If you are planning on choosing an electric scooter to commute to work or even just riding for fun, then the elegantly designed and powerful Unagi Model One is, without a doubt, the scooter for you. It weighs just 22.5 lbs and can be easily folded, has the battery power (15.5 miles) to get you from A to B and back again and the aesthetics that will put heart emojis in anyone’s eyes that looks at it.SEE SCOOTER
The iPhone of electric scooters.
Just looking at this scooter puts the heart emoji in my eyes.
If you are like me and you like a modern aesthetic and all things tech, then the Unagi Model One is absolutely the best electric scooter for you. You won’t find anything other scooter that matches it for design.
But what sits behind the design is the most impressive part of the scooter.
To kick start this review off I am going to deep dive into the battery power and mileage. The Unagi Model One isn’t just powered by any old lithion battery. Instead, it is powered by the highest quality batteries in existence. Yes! In existence!
The batteries, manufactured by LG, the award-winning multinational electronics company, provide one of the highest energy density and lowest charging time of any battery its size. And, thanks to the custom power management system, the batteries have been designed for longevity and reliability which means they will last for many years, no matter if you use them every day.
With the impressive battery covered, the answer to the question on your lips: ‘What’s the mileage?’, is…
Now, let’s take a look at some of the other features and functionality that make the Unagi Model One such an attractive choice.
To start, it’s flawless machined aluminum deck, smooth to the touch paint job and intuitive LED control display that looks like an iPhone integrated into the handlebar gives the Unagi an exterior befitting of a luxury vehicle (somewhat like a Tesla).
In fact, the Unagi uses the same carbon fibre as Elon Musk’s Space-X rockets. That is pretty awesome, right? Definitely something to brag about to your friends! But, it does have its uses as creates the perfect equilibrium between being lightweight, strong and durable.
The 250w front wheel drive motor lets you decide how fast you want to go. You can choose to start on Beginner mode while you get used to mastering your new electric scooter at 9.3 mph. Once you feel comfortable you can up the speed to the Advanced mode where you can enjoy a gentle cruise around the city streets at 12.4 mph or if you are feeling playful you can crank up to 15.5 mph.
That isn’t everything though.
The motor can produce enough torque to power you up 6-degree inclines and the custom built monitoring system ensures that your scooter won’t overheat.
Why does this matter to you?
Have you ever been in a car that’s been working so hard that you’ve had to pull over because it’s over-heated? Even if you haven’t you can probably imagine how frustrating this can be.
The Unagi’s monitoring system ensure that this doesn’t happen so you can continue to enjoy riding your scooter. In essence, the monitoring system optimizes the scooter to perform as efficiently as possible.
Similar to the example above, flat tires can also be very frustrating. Not for you though.
The scooter has been equipped with solid rubber tires that are puncture free. You can wave goodbye to flat tires – see ya!
This is impressive but other scooters also have puncture proof tires. What makes these tires stand out from the rest is their form.
They aren’t one solid piece of rubber. In fact, they are about ⅔ rubber, the rest is empty space thanks to the oblong cut-outs around the circumference of the tires.
Why do they cut outs?
Good question. Let me explain.
The cut-outs acts as a suspension system!
What about braking?
Well, the dual electronic anti-lock braking system will bring you to a safe stop. The further you push down on the brake, the more braking power will be applied.
Some other safety features to be aware of are the lumen LED headlight and bright red tail-light that blinks as you ride, the IP54 water resistant rating which lets you ride in the rain, and the intelligent battery system that protects against short circuits, over-currents, temperature abnormality and much more. Oh, and my favourite, the horn!
If you are planning on choosing an electric scooter to commute to work or even just riding for fun, then the elegantly designed and powerful Unagi Model One is, without a doubt, the scooter for you. It weighs just 22.5 lbs, can be easily folded in one smooth clicking motion, has the battery power (15.5 miles) to get you from A to B and back again and the aesthetics that will put heart emojis in anyone’s eyes that looks at it.
1. Segway Ninebot ES2
Segway Ninebot ES2
Ideal if you Want a scooter that has a 15.5 mile range but is $251 cheaper than the Unagi Model One. Featuring a built-in LED display and eye-catching lights at the bottom of the chassis that can be customized to suit you, the ES2 benefits from the sleek and modern design that exudes luxury.SEE SCOOTER
Want a scooter that has a 15.5 mile range but is $251 cheaper than the Unagi Model One? Strap in, because you’re going to love the Segway Ninebot ES2.
Let’s get down to business.
The smart battery management systems closely monitors the ES2’s battery cells to ensure efficiency and high performance. As a result, you can reap the benefits by cruising around for 15.5 miles while the 700W motor delivers a top speed of 15.5 mph. You can also choose from three riding modes, including: speed limit mode, standard mode and sport mode.
Additionally, the front and rear shock absorption system lets you ride in comfort. Having a suspension system on an electric scooter can often be overlooked but, trust me, it makes all the difference. Imagine feeling every imperfection in the road below in your legs and wrists as you ride along – it can get pretty uncomfortable and jarring after a while! The ES2 turns your riding experience into one that you can enjoy as opposed to being bounced all over the place.
I don’t know exactly what you plan on using your electric scooter for but what I can tell you is that being able to easily fold and carry your scooter is, for me, a must have feature, especially for long journeys where you may need to take it on public transport or store it in the trunk of your car.
All Ninebot models (there are 3 in total, including the ES2), are lightweight and have a one-click folding design – making them both convenient and portable. The ES2 weighs just 27.6 lbs.
Similar to its big brother (Ninebot ES4), the ES2 model has a built-in LED display, eye-catching lights at the bottom of the chassis that can be customized to suit you and a bright headlight. It also has dual electrical and mechanical brakes which help you slow down safely.
Where the ES2 differs from the ES4 is the lack of a cruise control function which lets you maintain a constant speed without the use of the accelerator and the ability to ride up 10-degree inclines as opposed to 15-degrees.
However, the ES2 still benefits from the sleek and modern design that exudes luxury. You even get to choose between a silver or grey finish.
Ultimately, I would advise you to read my review of the Ninebot ES4 before you make you mind up on the Ninebot ES2.
You get an additional 12.5 miles of range (28 vs 15.5 miles) and 3.1 extra mph (18.6 vs 15.5 mph), as well as some other cool features like cruise control.
1. GoTrax GXL 2
GoTrax GXL 2
It may be the cheapest long range electric scooter, but the GXL 2 has all of the advanced features that you see on more expensive models including: cruise control, 12 mile range from a 3-4 hour charge, and an LED handlebar display.
It may be the cheapest long range electric scooter on the list, but it packs a punch.
12 mile range. Check.
15.5 mph. Check.
Smart LED display. Check.
The GoTrax GXL 2 has all of the advanced features that you see on more expensive models.
Let’s take a look at what you can expect.
As I mentioned above, you can ride 12 miles on a single 3-4 hour charge. With such a short charge time, you could plug in your scooter as you stop off for a coffee or even at your office while you work. The point I am trying to make is that the fast charge time of the scooter means you and plug and go wherever you are. How does that benefit you?
I’ll set the scene for you…
You wake up and get ready for your morning commute, you realize you only have about 7 miles left in the scooter but your commute to work is 5 miles. You have enough juice to get to work but not enough to get back once that clock strike 5 pm. Not a problem. You get to work, plug in your scooter and its fully charged before you even take your lunch break. Work comes to a close, you pick up your scooter, unfold it and ride it back home with plenty of battery juice left over.
This should display to you how convenient this long range electric scooter is.
You’ll notice I referenced how you can easily pick up and unfold your scooter after storing it. To give you a bit more detail, it only weighs 27 lbs and has a folding frame that measure just 15 x 44 x 6 inches.
Unlike some of the other electric scooters that I reviewed, the Gotrax GXL 2 doesn’t have suspension but what it does have are 8.5 inch, air-filled, tires that soak up the bumpy city streets just like a suspension system would.
Impressively, the GXL 2 has cruise control. Yes! Cruise control and the scooter only costs $299.99! This is an absolute steal, especially considering that the next scooter up to have cruise control (Segway Ninebot ES4) costs approx. $469 more.
The cruise control function is extremely easy to use. Very simply, you just hold the accelerator down for 10 seconds to activate the function.
The GXL 2 has also been designed to be extremely durable with its fortified frame and reinforced fender and deck – making it ideal if you want a scooter to ride on a daily basis.
In conclusion, you can’t go wrong with the GoTrax GXL 2. It has the features of far more expensive electric scooters for a fraction of the cost. You can enjoy long range rides and take advantage of the cruise control function as you zip through the busy city streets at 15.5 mph. You can even monitor your speed and check your battery life on the LED handlebar display, as well as switching on the ultra-bright headlight for you’re night time travels.
1. Swagger 5
Swagtron City Commuter
A good option if want a similar mileage (11 mph) to the GoTrax GXL 2 but want to go fast (18 mph). It’s also equipped with some advanced features including the iOS and Android app that lets you connect your phone to your scooter via Bluetooth so you can control the cruise control function, switch the headlight on or off and activate sleep mode to save energy, and it’s the only scooter to have a phone mount.
The Swagger 5 is a great option if want a similar mileage to the GoTrax GXL 2 but want to go fast.
Hop on the Swagger 5, turn the throttle and you’ll be able to hit a top speed of 18 mph and ride for 11 miles before it needs recharging.
Like the majority of other scooters, the Swagger 5 has a folding frame for portability (weighing 26 lbs) , a bar-mounted LED display for monitoring speed, battery life and headlight status, and a rear disc brake for keeping you in control.
It also has cruise control which lets you take long road trips in comfort. The consistent speed that is delivered from the motor when the cruise control function is activated helps you to efficiently ride the scooter that should, but don’t quote me, help to extend the battery life.
But where the Swagger 5 really stands out from the pack is the iOS and Android app that lets you connect your phone to your scooter via Bluetooth so you can control the cruise control function, switch the headlight on or off and activate sleep mode to save energy.
To take the Bluetooth connectivity to the next level the scooter comes equipped with a phone mount which is attached to the handlebar. This gives you a real-time display that you can use to control your scooter. You could even load up Google Maps, enter your route and use your phone as a GPS system!
Ideal for commuting, the Swagger 5 motor won’t just power you up 20-degree inclines and let you zoom along at 18 mph whilst the battery keeps the wheels rolling for 11 miles, it will give you a scooter that you can show off to your friends as you connect your phone and remotely control it.
