Top Electric Scooters of 2018: The Best Rides for Your Urban Adventure

As the popularity of electric scooters surged in 2018, choosing the best scooter for your needs became a journey through a packed market of innovation and style. The landscape was diverse, with models catering to various preferences and requirements. However, certain scooters stood out for their exceptional performance, quality, and user reviews.

At the forefront of 2018’s best electric scooters was the Xiaomi Mi M365, a favorite for its mix of affordability, performance, and sleek design. It boasted a substantial range of up to 18.6 miles and a top speed of 15.5 mph, making it ideal for both leisurely rides and serious commutes. Additionally, it featured a simple, intuitive folding mechanism that made it highly portable.

Not far behind was the Segway Ninebot ES2. As a brand with a pedigree in personal transportation, Segway’s ES2 was a stellar option for those seeking reliability and advanced technology. It offered a slightly higher range than the M365 at 15.5 mph and could be upgraded with an additional battery to extend its reach.

For those prioritizing premium performance and a higher speed, the Boosted Rev captured attention with its dual-wheel drive system, boasting a top speed of 24 mph and a 22-mile maximum range. The robust build and powerful acceleration meant a premium riding experience, though it came with a heftier price tag.

On the more compact end of the spectrum, the Glion Dolly Foldable Lightweight Adult Electric Scooter provided an excellent solution for the daily commuter. Known for its durability, quick fold design, and unique vertical self-standing feature, it was perfect for public transportation and storing in tight spaces.

In choosing the best electric scooter of 2018, riders also considered factors such as weight capacity, ease of use, braking systems, and overall durability. User reviews, industry accolades, and brand reputation also played significant roles in making a well-informed purchase decision.

To conclude, the best electric scooter of 2018 truly depended on the rider’s individual needs. The Xiaomi Mi M365 stood out for its all-round performance and value, while the Segway Ninebot ES2 and the Boosted Rev catered to those seeking extra tech features and power, respectively. It’s a market that continues to evolve, but these models proved to be the top contenders of 2018, each earning its spot in the electric scooter hall of fame.
