Electric scooters are quickly becoming one of the most viable forms of transportation in the modern age. Extremely convenient in urban areas, electric scooters are a safe and dependable way to get from point a to point b without expending extreme effort.
While many may not think of electric scooters when considering fast forms of travel, the truth is electric scooters can be relatively fast. Listed below are 5 of the speediest models of electric scooters out there.
In compiling this list, we've weighed each scooter's relative speed against its maximum mileage, as well as the pros and cons of each.
How Fast do Electric Scooters Go?
While entry-level some scooter models can only reach a maximum speed of 10 mph, others such as the Q-POWER can travel speeds of up to 55 mph.
However, most electric scooters typically travel at a speed relatively near 25 mph.
The Top 5 Fastest Electric Scooters Listed
1. Qiewa Q-POWER
Of all the electric scooters we've compiled, the Qiewa is the most powerful. Able to achieve speeds of up to 55 mph, this off-roading extreme scooter is one of the most impressive models out there.
If you're concerned solely with the speed of your scooter, you will likely already be sold by the Qiewa's impressive maximum speed, but there are other features of the Qiewa that are equally as impressive. Many scooters are designed for urban use, but this Q-POWER boasts the capability to take your ride off the beaten path.
The Fastest Scooter Around
Equipped with two separate motors, each with the power of 1600 watts, the total motor power of the Q-POWER is an impressive 3200 watts. With a 48 volt battery, the Q-POWER packs a serious punch.
The Q-POWER is perfect for off-roading thanks to its 45-degree shock absorber. If you're looking for an extreme scooter, you won't be sorry with the experience the Q-POWER provides.
However, just because the Q-POWER is built for speed doesn't mean Qiewa hasn't taken their time to design a scooter equally as concerned with safety. The Q-POWER is equipped with double hydraulic brakes as a double brake light.
On the topic of convenience, the Q-POWER can fold into itself in a mere 25 seconds and allows users to enable a power-saving mode that keeps it running further for longer.
What's more, the Q-POWER can travel an impressive 50 miles in between charges, all depending on speed, of course. Additionally, the Q-POWER has a very average charge time of just 12 to 15 hours, making this one of the best scooters if you are looking to incorporate a scooter as part of your daily commute.
Despite its heavy-duty battery and multiple motors, the Q-POWER only weighs an impressive 81.5 pounds. By incorporating a remote into the design of the Q-POWER, users can lock and unlock it from afar, keeping it safe from theft.
Equipped with an adjustable handlebar, the Q-POWER makes sure not to forgo comfort in its intuitive design concerns.
The Q-POWER's 11-inch off-road tires offer consumers an extreme experience, especially when paired with the scooter's maximum speed of 55 mph. Altogether, the Q-POWER has a lot of power behind it (hence the name) but remains a solid choice of scooter overall. Buy it here

While the Kaabo achieves an impressively high mileage between charges, this does not translate to longer charge time. The Kaabo can reach a full charge in only 7 to 8 hours.
This kind of charge time is impressive for even median scooters and for a scooter which such a high mileage in between charges to have this kind of charge time is nearly unheard of, making the Kaabo one of the most impressive scooter models out there.
One thing the Kaabo isn't built for, however, is sheer portability. The Kaabo weighs a whopping 101 pounds and trekking this scooter around isn't for the faint of heart (or light of muscle).
