How Fast Does An Electric Scooter Go?

January 20, 2022

Electric scooters are not only toys for children, but also a fun means of transportation for adults to move from location A to location B. Since electric scooters are used as a means of transportation, we must be curious about how fast they can run and what their maximum speed is. How fast are Gyroor's electric scooters? Please read the article for answers.

What affects the top speed of an electric scooter?

Motor Power

The motor of an electric scooter is represented by power. The greater the power, the faster the motor rotates when it is working, thereby driving the electric scooter to go faster.

Speed control device

All electric scooters have an electronic speed controller or ESC, which is used to control the speed of the motor in the electric scooter. It receives input from the throttle and precisely controls the current flow from the battery to the motor. Controllers are rated for current (amps) and voltage (volts), with higher current, higher voltage controllers capable of driving more powerful scooters. The maximum speed of many electric scooters is limited and this part works.

Battery voltage

As the lithium battery is discharged during the ride, the nominal voltage output of the battery will also slowly drop.

The lithium battery of the electric scooter will be continuously discharged during the riding process, and the battery voltage will also drop slowly during this process.

This means that when you're riding with a low battery, you won't be able to reach the maximum speed and acceleration you can with a fully charged battery. Once your battery drops below 20-25%, you'll notice that top speed is nearly impossible.

Rider weight

The heavier the rider, the more stress the electric scooter is subjected to. The greater the resistance the motor has to overcome while driving, the maximum speed is therefore reduced. If you weigh more than 200 pounds, try to choose a scooter with a high-powered motor when buying an electric scooter.

Wheel size and tires

Wheel size also has an effect on top speed. Assuming that the electric scooter motor rotates at the same speed, the larger the tire, the higher the top speed.

Tire pressure also affects top speed. Changes in tire pressure directly affect the rolling resistance of a vehicle. Over-inflated tires have less contact area with the road, which can lead to loss of traction and uneven wear. An underinflated tire has more contact with the road surface, which increases rolling resistance and reduces efficiency.

How fast can electric scooter go?

When we buy an electric scooter, how do we know its maximum speed?

  1. Find the speed parameter of the electric scooter.
  2. Predict the maximum speed based on the motor power of the electric scooter.

The following table is a basic reference table for electric scooter motor power and speed.

Conclusion

Some young people like to look for excitement, so they hope that the higher the speed of the electric scooter, the better. But fast means unsafe, and speeds over 30mph are illegal in some areas.

  • For adults, the maximum speed of an electric scooter is around 20mph.
  • For teenagers, the maximum speed of an electric scooter should not exceed 15mph.
  • For children, the maximum speed of the electric scooter should not exceed 10mph, 5-6mph is the most suitable.
