Electric Scooters and Electric Bicycles: Costs and Considerations

Are you interested in adding an electric scooter or electric bicycle to your transportation arsenal but wondering how much one might set you back? You're not alone – many potential buyers find themselves in the same boat. In this article, we break down the costs and considerations relevant to prospective e-scooter and e-bike owners to help you make a more informed decision.

On average, you can expect to spend between $300 and $600 for a decent scooter with a reliable motor, a robust build, and satisfactory battery life. High-end scooters that offer more power, features, and battery life typically cost upwards of $800. Take note that there are also off-road and mountain electric scooters in the market that may come with higher price tags.
