Electric Scooter Showdown: Apollo City 2022 vs. Hiboy NEX5

Article Content: When it comes to choosing an electric scooter, the options can be overwhelming. In this comparison, we pit the Apollo City 2022 against the Hiboy NEX5 to see which scooter comes out on top in terms of performance, features, and value for money. Firstly, the Apollo City 2022 boasts a powerful 500W motor which can peak at 800W, allowing it to climb steep hills with ease and reach a top speed of 25 mph. In contrast, the Hiboy NEX5 is equipped with a more modest 350W motor, peaking at 550W, and has a top speed of 19 mph, making it suitable for flatter terrains and moderate speeds. When it comes to battery life, the Apollo City 2022 shines with a range of up to 28 miles thanks to its 48V 13.2Ah battery. On the other hand, the Hiboy NEX5 has a range of up to 25 miles with its 36V 7.5Ah battery, which is decent, but not as robust as the Apollo. Ride comfort is another critical consideration. The Apollo City 2022 features a dual suspension system and pneumatic tires, offering a smooth ride even on rougher surfaces. The Hiboy NEX5, while it also has pneumatic tires, lacks a comprehensive suspension system which may lead to a less comfortable ride on bumpy roads. Build quality is where the Apollo City really stands out, sporting a sturdier frame capable of handling a max load of 265 lbs, compared to the Hiboy NEX5's 220 lbs limit. Additionally, the Apollo City 2022 comes with an IP54 water resistance rating, whereas the Hiboy NEX5 does not have an official IP rating. On the tech side of things, both scooters have LED displays and smartphone connectivity, but the Apollo City 2022 provides a more advanced app experience offering GPS tracking, ride stats, and scooter diagnostics. Lastly, the Hiboy NEX5 comes in at a more affordable price point compared to the more feature-rich and powerful Apollo City 2022. This makes the NEX5 an attractive option for casual riders or those on a budget. In conclusion, if you’re after power, range, and a more comfortable riding experience, the Apollo City 2022 is likely worth the extra investment. However, for those who have lighter use in mind and are looking to save money, the Hiboy NEX5 is a capable and budget-friendly scooter.
