Top Electric Scooters Under $500: Your Guide to Budget-Friendly Rides

February 28, 2024

Navigating the sea of electric scooters can be overwhelming, especially when you're looking for the perfect blend of affordability and quality. Fortunately, the sweet spot of sub-$500 scooters offers a variety of options for the budget-conscious rider without sacrificing essential features. Let's dive into some of the top electric scooters you can snag for less than half a grand.

GOTRAX GXL Commuter v2

Boasting a sleek design and sturdy build, the GOTRAX GXL Commuter v2 hits the mark for everyday reliability. With a top speed of 15.5 mph and a range of up to 12 miles per charge, it's ideal for short city commutes. The air-filled tires offer a smooth ride, and with its easy folding mechanism, it's a breeze to store and transport.

Hiboy S2R

For those who prioritize portability and style, the Hiboy S2R is a standout. Don't let its compact size fool you; this e-scooter packs enough power to reach speeds up to 19 mph and has a convenient removable battery system, enabling you to double your range effortlessly.

Segway Ninebot E22

The Segway Ninebot E22 shines with its brand's reputable engineering. It offers dual-braking systems, built-in front, rear, and brake LED lights, and a one-click folding system for ease of use. Though its 13.7-mile range is modest, it promises a durable and comfortable commuter experience.


Another excellent offering from GOTRAX, the Apex model, is perfect for beginners or those seeking simplicity. With a max speed of 15.5 mph and a 15-mile range, it's equipped with a strong frame, 8.5-inch pneumatic tires, and an efficient 36V battery, guaranting a great ride.

Levy Electric Scooter

Last but not least, the Levy Electric Scooter stands out for its customizable battery system - the first of its kind. It also features a smooth and zippy 18 mph top speed and up to 10 miles of travel per charge, making it a versatile choice for both leisurely outings and quick commutes.

These scooters not only provide reliable transportation but also deliver a fun and eco-friendly way to navigate your city. Keep in mind to always wear protective gear and adhere to local traffic regulations. Enjoy your ride!
