The 3 lightest electric scooters of 2023

Updated: May 2

As personally owned electric scooters slowly overtake the use of rentals in most major cities, riders are opting for lighter scooters and bikes that accommodate their environment and living situations. Multimodal trips are also on the rise - those that involving using an electric scooter for segments of the trip in addition to riding on traditional transit lines (buses & trains), where compactness and portability are essential.

Many of the development trends in the industry have seen higher-end models with larger motors and battery packs, which are preferred by some but certainly not everyone who is relying on e-scooters as a means for practical commuting and not just recreation.

Below are the 3 lightest electric scooters out in 2023. All under 30 lbs, foldable and carriable. The eTwow GT, Unagi, and Levy.

eTwow GT

First up, the eTwow GT, also known as the uScooter. This is one of the highest end light electric scooters coming in at just above 29 pounds. With a high capacity 48 volt battery, it offers one of the best range-to-weight ratios of all scooters, getting over 20 miles on a single charge. It also uses a 500W motor and has a top speed of almost 24mph in the sport version.

It uses smaller 8” solid wheels, but adds in front and rear suspension to help with shock absorption. Of the three, this is the most expensive at just over $1000.

Range: 20.8 miles

Top Speed: 24.3 mph

Weight: 29.3 lbs

Wheels: 8” Solid Rubber

Price: $1049

Levy Electric

The Levy Electric scooter is also just under 29 lbs and has a similar range to the Unagi, however it uses larger 10” Pneumatic tires which are much more forgiving on the street. It also is one of the only scooters that has a swappable battery pack incorporated into it's design. As of 2024, Electric Scooter Guide ranked this as their top choice.

Range: 9.2 miles

Top Speed: 19.2 mph

Weight: 28.7 lbs

Wheels: 10” Pneumatic

Price: $529


The Unagi is a popular US based brand that mainly offers their flagship model as a subscription. It is the lightest of the 3 at just over 28 pounds, but uses a much smaller battery that averages under 10 miles per charge. The scooter uses 7.5” solid rubber wheels without suspension, so this scooter is a much better fit for smooth, paved roads that are in good condition.

Range: 8.5 miles

Top Speed: 18.9 mph

Weight: 28.4 lbs

Wheels: 7.5” Solid Rubber

Price: $990
