Electric scooters are one of the best options for portable electric transportation. They are nimble on the street and bike lanes, yet can be quickly folded and carried with you when you arrive at your destination. And while some heavier scooters can be a bit more challenging to lug around, the EMOVE 2.0 electric scooter from Voro Motors stands out as one of the lightest electric scooters in the market.
At just 7 kg (15 lbs), this scooter is the lightest I’ve ever seen. Check out my full analysis and video review below. expand full story

There are plenty of simple, lightweight scooters for casually tootin’ around town. This is not one of those scooters. The Turbowheel Dart is part electric scooter, part main battle tank. This is the kind of electric scooter that can tackle any commuting scenario and still have something left in the tank for screwing around doing donuts in parking lots on your way home.

Electric scooters have been hailed as efficient alternatives in urban transportation. But they aren’t without their downsides, with one of the major ones being injuries. As the number of accidents increases, hospitals and even the CDC are conducting studies to better understand the issue.

With so many different electric scooters on the market, it can be difficult to stand out. That has led companies to get creative with the features they include in their scooters.
InMotion took that notion to heart with the design of their InMotion L8F electric scooter. In addition to the standard scooter features we all know and love, they included some fun and fascinating new features I haven’t seen in any other model.

Much like the riders that use them, electric scooters come in all shapes and sizes. While you’re probably familiar with the standard electric kick scooters like Bird and Lime, or the sexier sit-down scooters like the Vespa Elettrica, those are just the ones that hog all the attention.
But Motochimp wants to change that, and has rolled out their new Motochimp Lyinh V2 electric scooter as a prime example. And sure, it’s a bit odd looking. But this electric scooter is a veritable urban assault vehicle. Read on to see why.

Electric scooter-sharing companies are pretty much all over the place these days. Lime and Bird are the major players, but there are more than a dozen other companies offering rental e-bikes and e-scooters. However, a new type of shared electric scooter is getting ready to hit the streets this month. And this one has not two but three wheels.
E-mobility and ride-sharing company Gotcha is preparing to debut electric leaning trikes that offer a more comfortable and faster way to scoot around than conventional scooter-sharing companies.
One of the perks of working for Electrek is that I get to review all sorts of electric bicycles, e-scooters, e-skateboards and other micromobility e-devices. While many share similarities, every now and again one comes along that is unlike anything I’ve ridden before. Case in point: the carbon fiber Kiwano KO1+ one-wheel self-balancing electric scooter.
This thing was incredibly fun to learn to ride, though the process wasn’t a piece of cake. Read on to learn more about this unique vehicle that goes on sale today, and to watch me make a fool of myself learning to ride it.

Electric scooters are becoming a popular commuting solution, especially after scooter-sharing companies have made them nearly ubiquitous. With prices as low as $299 for popular electric scooters like the GOTRAX GXL, a common question has become “how durable are they?”
So when it came time for this review, I decided to put the GXL to a harder than normal test. I wanted to see what it could handle. And the results actually surprised me. expand full story

I’ve been a fan of personal electric vehicles (PEVs) for at least a decade. Whether that means electric bicycles, e-scooters, e-skateboards, e-unicycles, e-motorcycles or any other number of weird little electric vehicles, I’ve ridden just about all of them over countless thousands of miles.
And while the majority of my saddle time has been on electric bicycles, spending the last five months on a GenZe 2.0 electric scooter has changed me. Five hundred miles later, I’m an electric scooter convert that has finally kicked cars goodbye. Here’s my story.
