Top Electric Scooters of 2018: Which One Claimed the Crown?

As the demand for convenient, eco-friendly transportation rises, electric scooters have zipped into the spotlight. Back in 2018, the market was brimming with innovation, and consumers were on the lookout for the very best the sector had to offer. In the quest for the top electric scooter of that year, several key features were considered: range, speed, portability, durability, and price, to name a few.

Drawing considerable attention was the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter M365, acclaimed for its balance of performance and affordability. Its sleek design, long-lasting battery life (up to 18.6 miles on a single charge), and effortless foldability for portability made it a favorite among commuters.

Meanwhile, the high-end segment boasted the Dualtron Thunder from Minimotors, a powerhouse with remarkable speed and an unrivaled range that catered to the most demanding of enthusiasts. The construction quality and advanced features, such as its customizable suspension, set a new benchmark for what a premium electric scooter could be.

For those seeking a blend of performance and weight, the Boosted Rev was an unbeatable candidate. Known for its sturdy build, dependable brakes, and dual-wheel drive, the Boosted Rev offered a trustworthy ride that's still remembered for its excellence.

Ultimately, the title of 'best electric scooter of 2018' depends on rider preference and the specifics of their needs, but the Xiaomi Mi M365 frequently topped the charts as the all-rounder winner, delivering on value, effectiveness, and widespread accolades from both critics and users alike.

Even though technology has advanced since then, and newer models have entered the market, exploring the best of 2018 provides valuable insights into the evolution of electric scooters and what features continue to resonate with users. Whether for the daily commute, a leisurely ride, or high-performance thrills, the electric scooters of 2018 laid the groundwork for the innovative designs we enjoy today.
