We've looked at electric scooters for every budget, but price isn't the only factor to consider when you're planning a purchase.

It's also important to think about the range you'll need (how far the scooter can travel between charges), its top speed, its weight (particularly if you're planning to take it on public transport).

A wide footplate (ideally with a non-slip grip) can make the scooter more stable, and electrically-assisted brakes can give you more stopping power.

Here we've focused on lightweight folding scooters for commuting rather than performance models that boast much higher top speeds, but are prohibitively expensive for everyday riding.

It's worth noting that some electric scooters are more easily available in certain countries (for example, it's much easier to get hold of a Xiaomi scooter in the UK than the US) so we've also aimed to cover the best scooters from a range of brands so there's something for everyone.

It very much depends on where you live.
