The best e-scooters are expensive. But there are also good models for little money. The leaderboard shows the top 10 street legal electric scooters.
The range of street-legal e-scooters for private use is huge. But our tests have shown that not all are good. This is about your own safety in traffic, you shouldn’t save in the wrong place. Our comparison test shows what you have to pay attention to : e-scooter with street approval . If you live in a larger German city and want to check before buying whether e-scooters are even for you, you should read our article Lime, Tier, Bird, Circ, Jump & Voi: E-scooter rental in comparison .
So far we have tested twelve e-scooters individually. From cheap to expensive, everything is included here to show a good cross-section of the market. With the Trekstor EG6078 (test report) , however, there is a model that we cannot recommend and therefore has no place in a list of the best.
Despite the eleven tested e-scooters, some models are still missing for a comprehensive list of the best. We’ll stay tuned to the topic and gradually expand the test series with additional models. The results are then included in the comparison test and this leaderboard is always updated with updates. We collect all individual tests and a lot more on our topic page E-Scooter . If you are not yet sure which device class is right for you, we recommend our comparison: E-folding bike or e-scooter? And the winner is …
1st place: The Urban #HMBRG
The The Urban #HMBRG (review) is the best we tested E-Scooter. At just under 900 euros, it is quite expensive, but offers a lot of premium features that you otherwise only get if you invest even more money. This includes the great workmanship and the well thought-out, high-quality folding mechanism, which offers so much stability that the driver always feels in control in every situation. But also the very good tires, the very good brakes, the very good range and the good engine are part of it.
A few little things are annoying. So the handlebars should like to be a little higher. The LED display also looks outdated and it always starts at the lowest level. But these are basically small things (except for very tall people). The Urban #HMBRG leads the field of the best e-scooters.
2nd place: Elmoto Kick
The Elmoto Kick (test report) is a very good e-scooter. In terms of its processing, nobody is fooling him. The engine is also strong, the tires very good and the brakes excellent. We think the alarm system is great.
The idea of using Einhell batteries for operation is ingenious for everyone who already uses Einhell devices. But even newbies have two large Einhell batteries at home when they buy the Elmoto Kick, and can save the batteries when buying Einhell devices. Overall, the range of almost 20 kilometers is okay. If you want more, you can buy an electric scooters in hyderabad. We find it less nice that users always have to take the batteries out of the Elmoto Kick for charging.
3rd place: Iconbit IK-1969K
The Iconbit Kick Tracer City IK-1969K (test report) ranks second in our top 10 best e-scooters despite, or perhaps because of its low price. Yet it hardly shows any weaknesses. That is why it is our price-performance recommendation. It accelerates and brakes well and has additional rear suspension. This is also necessary because of the solid rubber tires for a smoother ride. The workmanship of the Iconbit IK-1969k is okay, only the folding mechanism catches a bit at the beginning and needs to be lubricated. Its range of 18 kilometers is not great, but is okay for the low price.
4th place: Egret Ten V4
The Egret Ten V4 (test report) is a luxury e-scooter. Thanks to the 500 watt motor, it accelerates very strongly, rolls quietly and thanks to 10-inch pneumatic tires also with low vibration and a great driving experience through the streets. Its battery is huge and the rolling resistance is low. As a result, it gets significantly further than its competitors until the battery has to be connected to the grid again. The braking system with one disc brake per wheel works very well. The folding mechanism is excellent. It makes a valuable and well thought-out impression. As one of the very few e-scooters, the handles can also be folded down here. Only its handlebars could be too low for very tall people. The second catch: It’s expensive, really expensive.
5th place: Metz Moover
The Metz Moover (test report) was one of the first street- legal e-scooters in 2019. Nevertheless, it still looks thought out down to the last detail. In particular, the high quality of workmanship and the consistent use of high-quality components are easy to see on the Moover. Nobody can fool him when it comes to driving experience. This is mainly due to the large 12-inch pneumatic tires, which absorb most of the bumps and are fantastic in the curve. The front and rear disc brakes are the best in the test field.
The motor is sufficiently powerful, but it is clearly audible. When folded, it fits in trunk compartments from golf class. Its battery is small, but thanks to its low rolling resistance, its range is in the upper midfield. We didn’t like the low payload of just 94 kilograms, the lack of splash water certification and the rather high price.
6th place: Doc Green Explorer ESA 1919
The Doc Green Explorer ESA 1919 (test report) costs around 370 euros. But be careful: the e-scooter is often on offer at ATU, Lidl and other dealers for around 300 euros. Of course, buyers have to accept compromises in comparison to more expensive models. He accelerates too slowly, which disqualifies him for heavy people. In combination with the honeycomb tires, there is also no suspension to make the driving experience softer and to relieve the components. The brakes can be really annoying and in the worst case even dangerous as they always apply too abruptly. But it also has the shortest braking distance of all the e-scooters we tested.
