Finding the Best Electric Scooter for Women
Electric scooters aren’t just for men and there are plenty of options for women, let’s make that clear from the get-go.
We shouldn’t have to say this, but, unfortunately, the market is quite one sided when you look at the number of male riders compared to the number of female riders.
This is something we’d like to see change as more and more people adopt these personal electric transporters.
One of the main barriers to entry we see for females is the lack of content geared towards this topic. That, and a lack of information.
That changes today as we search for the best electric scooter for women, outlining a range of options for you to pick and choose from!
Let’s get started.
The Best Electric Scooter for Women
Unlike electric bikes, the majority of e scooters you come across are unisex.
I’d say around 95% of them fall into that category which benefits everyone but it also comes with a massive question mark too, as more options can lead to more confusion when making a final decision.
Do you prioritise range, or is the feeling of riding around on it more important?
This was one of several questions we asked ourselves when putting the list below together, and rather than decide between one or the other, instead we opted to include any scooter that would appeal to all kinds of considerations.
In other words, from commuters to everyday explorers, our list of the best womens scooters has them all!
Segway-Ninebot Max G30
Max Range: 40 Miles
If you want to talk about pure unadulterated range, then you need to look at the Ninebot Segway Max G30.
According to the brand and a few user reviews, this e scooter fulfils its promise, gifting riders up to 40 miles with every charge.
We’ll say that again for those of you not paying attention: this electric scooter from Segway-Ninebot gives you up to 40 miles of range!
It also comes with four unique riding modes, giving riders total control.
Motor-power is set at 350W, which makes it one of the strongest e scooters out there. And it only takes 6 hours to charge!
The price of the Segway-Ninebot Max G30 might put a few buyers off; this is the only downside. Unless you can afford it, that is.
We only say that because most only look for e scooters under £500 on average to save a bit of money.
Try to keep an open mind if you happen to be one of these people.
It costs the same as the above mentioned Xiaomi electric scooter in the Pro 2, and it boasts even better range.
E4TP Says: This is easily the strongest personal electric vehicle we found when looking for the best electric scooter for commuting. Segway-Ninebot should really take a bow with this one.
Xiaomi Pro 2 Electric Scooter
Max Range: 28 Miles
It’s a popular choice, and it’s a brand we’ve covered extensively in previous scooter guides at E4TP, but not without merit.
The Xiaomi Pro 2 Electric Scooter is the brand at its very best from a range perspective. With the Pro 2, riders will get up to 28 miles (45 km) out of each charge (with a full battery).
It’s the best Xiaomi electric scooter if you care about max range. What with the Essential Electric Scooter coming in with a measly 12.4 miles (20 km) of range despite its low price point.
And the 1S averages out at 18.5 miles (30 km).
Power here comes from a 300W motor, a motor that is 50W higher than every other scooter coming out of the Xiaomi camp.
That’s not to say there aren’t similarities between the Pro 2 and its brothers/sisters either.
For example, all sport 8.5” wheels and have a very sleek, black matte design.
You will have to pay a lot more for this particular Xiaomi electric scooter, given it sits at the £620 mark most of the time.
That being said, Pure Electric — as of this writing — has the Xiaomi Pro 2 Electric Scooter on sale (£469), so you might want to hurry before it’s too late.
Still, we think it’s totally worth it given how far you can go between charges.
Besides, some of you might work far away — like 12 miles away, far away — and having that range allows for peace of mind, knowing you can get to and from the office without the need for a top-up.
E4TP Says: This Xiaomi electric scooter is a powerhouse that doesn’t look too different from other two-wheelers in its collection. Easily one of the best commuters, period.
Razor EcoSmart Metro
Max Range: 12 Miles
Finding the best electric scooter for commuting isn’t always about range. Sometimes, performance/comfort trumps how far you can travel.
Case in point, the Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter with seat.
You won’t find battery-powered scooters like this often due to the simplicity of standard scooter design.
Like we said at the top of the guide, electric scooters with seats aren’t talked about enough and are often swept to the side in place of two-wheelers like the Pro 2.
We get it.
The EcoSmart Metro is lacking in the range department. Still, its design, and the fact that it has a seat for added comfort, should make up for that.
Each charge will give riders around 40 minutes of use before needing some juice.
This could prove troublesome for workers trying to beat the morning rush, but it’s a godsend for those going to and from the shops.
The Razor EcoSmart Metro could be identified as a moped, and people wouldn’t question a thing.
It features air-filled 16” tires and a twistable hand-grip/throttle. Both are hallmarks of low-end mopeds.
Speed-wise, the Razor EcoSmart Metro is faster than most, allowing riders to ride up to 18 mph (which is technically illegal in the UK).
E4TP Says: Convenience is key, which explains why the Razor EcoSmart Metro is such a viable option for commuters. If you’re looking for an electric scooter with a seat, then this will be the one for you.
Inokim Light 2 Electric Scooter
Max Range: 23.6 Miles
Control the streets with your best foot forward, courtesy of the Inokim Light 2 Electric Scooter, and you’ll never look back.
This version is based on the Inokim Light, a bestseller that caused the brand’s name to skyrocket, and with good reason.
You might be wondering why we’ve chosen this one, considering how much it costs (£840) for how far you can go (23.6).
Well, we’ve chosen the Inokim Light 2 Electric Scooter because it has the need for speed. And let’s face it, no one likes being late for work.
So how fast can the Light 2 go?
According to the brand, it can travel up to 34 km/h, or 21 mph (roughly). It’s pretty darn impressive given the model it fits under.
Stats/spec like this tends to be reserved for heavy-duty scooters only, not street-optimised types.
The build of this e scooter is also worth shouting about.
It features a high-quality 6061 T6 aluminium frame alongside 8.5” air-filled wheels. Weight-wise, this speedster is only 13.7kg, making it pretty easy to pick up and carry around for a little while.
You know, features you should expect from a battery-powered scooter worth nearly £900.
E4TP Says: Speed is just as important as range, in our opinion. It’s easily the biggest selling point of the Inokim Light 2, despite how much you pay for it. And it looks cool, let’s not forget that.
Pure Air Pro LR Electric Scooter
Brand: Pure Air
Max Range: 37.2 Miles
Make no mistake about it, this Pure Air Pro LR Electric Scooter is a glorified mountain-climber.
The LR in its name stands for ‘Long Range’, and it really shows, given the fact that riders can enjoy up to 37.2 miles (60 km) on every charge.
If you thought the motor power of the Max G30 was impressive, wait till you see what Pure Air has in store with its Pro LR e scooter.
Peak motor power comes in at 700W with an average of 500W.
It’s a beast, and it’s waterproof, benefiting those who might live in areas known for bouts of wet weather.
Speed is capped at 15.5 mph like most that fit the ‘Popular Electric Scooter UK’ mould.
Still, clear-cut differences help set the Pure Air Pro LR from the rest of the pack.
Such as 10” puncture-proof tires and regenerative braking that will constantly keep you topped up without the need to plug in.
It comes with three-speed modes and three colour options to boot. We should mention that the treated maple and birch wood deck doesn’t change colour.
Who would want to change the colour of the deck anyway?
It’s perfect in its current form.
Oh, and if the price is putting you off, know that you can take advantage of Klarna should you buy it from sites like Pure Electric.
E4TP Says: Range aside, you’re getting a very reliable two-wheeler. One that, literally, goes the extra mile in every department. They don’t make rides like the Pure Air Pro LR Electric Scooter often.
Everyone has their opinions when it comes to e scooters
Finding the Best Electric Scooter for Women
We’re already seeing some big shifts in the number of women riding around on rental e scooters. Still, the number of females who own an electric scooter continues to leave a lot to be desired.
We hope we’ve given you a lot to consider in this post and have provided you with options should you decide to invest in an e scooter.
If you do choose to buy one and are from the UK, then we’d highly recommend getting to know the laws surrounding these transporters as there is a lot to learn and a lot to be aware of.
Did we miss any ladies electric scooters worth shouting out? If so, do let us know via our social media and we’ll update this list accordingly.
Womens Electric Scooter FAQs
Let’s look at some frequently asked questions tied to the best electric scooter for women.
Which is the best electric scooter for women?
If we had to pick one scooter as the best electric scooter for women, then we’d have to go with the Pure Air Electric, it’s every bit as powerful as it says it is, and is the ideal commuter.
Are electric scooters worth the money?
Sales year on year would suggest that, yes, electric scooters are more than worth the money. They offer a sustainable way to move around and are very easy to ride when compared to skateboards and bikes, which explains why they’ve replaced a lot of rental bike options in cities around the world.
Can I use an electric scooter to get to work?
This will depend on where you work. If getting to work involves travelling on public roads/pathways in the UK, then you will need to rent an electric scooter and won’t be able to use your personal transporter. Again, this comes down to the laws in the country that state what is/isn’t allowed, and as it stands, private e scooters are technically illegal.
