Probably most of the people have the concept that much money buys highest quality product.
In most cases, this is indeed true.
Expensive electric scooters usually mean better performance (e.g. faster speed, longer range, shorter charging times, better durability and portability).
However, not everyone has a mine at home, hahaha.
For those who are not chasing for a big brand, we can get a nice e-scooter but don't need to pay a high price.
For sure, we can't buy an electric scooter for the same price as a normal bike either, which is also unrealistic.
Of course, different scooters are designed for different purposes thus we have e-scooters at different price. Electric scooters for kids are usually more affordable than electric scooters for adults.
So, how much do I need to spend to get a decent electric scooter?
How much does an electric scooter cost ( adults & kids)?
It is possible to buy a basic electric scooter adults for under £100 on the market, while high-end electric scooters can cost over £6,000.
However, electric scooters uk in the price range of £300-£1,000 are the choice for most people.
The price range of the electric skateboards for kids is generally between £100 and £300.
Why are electric scooters so expensive?
Electric scooters are much more expensive than kick electric scooters due to the accessories.
The most expensive accessories are the battery and electric motor. Of course, the better the configuration, the higher the price of the electric scooter, and here we exclude for the brand effect.
As we know, batteries are very expensive and nearly a third of the overall cost of an electric scooter is contributed by the battery.
After all, the higher the power of the battery, the better the overall performance of the electric scooter.
The larger the battery capacity, the more power the scooter will have and the longer range.
- Electric Motor
The motor doesn't cost as much as the battery, but expensive too! After all, the motor drives the wheels, absorbs the shocks and vibrations in ride and plays an important role on an e-scooter. Good performance needs powerful motors!
In addition, the special features of regenerative braking and special bearings, etc. add up to increase the price on the e-scooter.
- R&D Costs
Whenever a new phone is launched, it tends to cost more than the precious one. That's because new phones cost a lot of money, manpower, equipment and so on for researches and developments.
The same is true of e-scooters, including testing, research, controller apps, and more cost.
Is it worth to buy an electric scooter?
As long as you buy a scooter and don't let it end up as a shelf or dusty habitat, then I think it's worth the money.
Make the most of your purchase and use it for what it's worth.
Of course, above is what I think but not your thoughts.
I don't care if you buy it for fun or for commuting or just for riding to the nearby 2km shopping mall. If you think it's worth then it is worthy. It's up to you to decide whether it's worth it or not.
Hahahaha just kidding, I indeed hope you won’t regret buying an electric scooter afterwards.
