When buying a new electric scooter, range often has a huge influence on which scooter a person buys. We all want to get the most out of our electric motor, and running out of power is not an ideal scenario.
That is why many people compare eScooters' range and long-range capacity before buying one.
What are Range and Long-Range?
When we talk about maximum range in regards to electric scooters, we are talking about the total distance the eScooter is able to travel before it runs out of battery power and needs to be charged again.
So in order to plan out your ride and know exactly how far the vehicle can go, knowing your maximum range is a good idea.
If your commuting distance to work is over 20km per way or you are looking for an electric motor vehicle made for off-road adventures, we recommend going for a long-range electric scooter. We call a scooter a long-ranger when it is capable of reaching a distance of 50km or over per charge.
What impacts the distance range?
The battery has a big impact on how many kilometres you are able to travel before it stops. The more powerful and bigger your battery is the further you are able to go on your scooter.
Another factor impacting your range is your riding mode. For optimised distance range we recommend using the eco mode when riding as this setting paces the battery output and you will be able to go further. Aggressive riding styles and mode settings are more likely to require more power, therefore draining the battery faster.
The riding conditions you travel in also affect your travel distance. Steep uphills and rougher terrains - like dirt and rocks - demand more from your battery, and therefore diminishes the capacity of your ride. The same goes for people that are heavier, as the ride needs to generate more power to drive the ride forward and therefore reduces the travel range.
