Electric motorized commuters like skateboards and kick scooters are getting very popular nowadays. People are switching to these eco-friendly options rather than getting a gasoline-hungry motorbike or a physically exhausting bicycle.
Now for any product which is to be used daily, along with the technological aspect, the comfort of the rider is also a major factor. So companies are making these electric scooters and also putting a seat on them so that you don’t have to stand and ride anymore. The way these companies are installing the seats in those portable commuters is really very unique and from the design perspective, it’s stunning.
But again, when you go in the market to get one of those for you, you might get really confused as there are so many products available. So to help all the potential consumers like you who are willing to own one of these toys, let it be for day-to-day use or just for a fun ride, we came up with the list of ten best eco-friendly electric scooters with a seat on them which are currently the best in the market.
Let’s not beat around the bush anymore and directly jump to our list.
URB-E – Innovative design makes it perfect for a city ride
We have listed many types of seated scooter here in our list, but URB-E aced among all because of its uniqueness. URB-E first launched the prototype at CES 2014 but that was too slow and weak to be really useful on the rugged street. But with their final version available to the consumers, they have taken a big leap.
URB-E is not cheap. But the quality product they are offering is definitely worth every penny. The scooter is very well built with both carbon fiber and aluminum. The use of these materials also helped to keep the weight of the scooter only 35 lbs, which is very light considering the seated scooters.
The design of this scooter is very unique and it’s not something we see on the street daily. This rare design also made the scooter very compact and it is easily foldable into an easy carrying commute while not in use.
This portable scooter is powered by a 250-watt brushless motor attached to its front wheel. The motor is powerful enough to boost the scooter up to a speed of 15 mph. The scooter is also packed with a 36-volt Li-ion battery which can take you to a maximum range of 20 miles. The battery is easily rechargeable and takes almost 4 hours to get fully charged.
- This scooter is equipped with a 250-watt brushless motor which is capable of generating enough boost to get a maximum speed of 15mph.
- The 36-volt Li-ion battery gets fully charged in almost 4 hours. With a single charge, this scooter can take you up to a range of 20 miles.
- The body is made with a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum. Both of these materials are very light yet strong.
- The scooter weighs only 35 lbs but can support an adult up to a weight of 250 lbs.
- The scooter has a disc brake attached to the rear wheel and the motor is attached to the front.
- URB-E has some very cool features like USB port to charge your phone on the go and a coffee cup holder as well.
- The scooter also has a basket attached to the back which may come handy after a little grocery shopping.
Black Super Turbo – Fast, foldable and Affordable
The first noticeable thing about this scooter is the sprockets fixed to it. Those are huge monstrous wheels and can go on any surface. A True Unite 1000-watt motor is used to power this scooter. This motor produces 3000 rpm and can easily speed up the scooter up to 26 mph. This scooter can also give you a range up to 18 miles, thanks to its 36-volt battery.
Black Super Turbo also has disc brakes attached to both rear and front wheels.
Despite all the good features, this scooter has a few noticeable flaws too. Black Super Turbo has a deep cell lead acid battery. No doubt lead acid batteries are no competition to Li-ion batteries but a Li-ion battery comes with a price too. Another flaw of this scooter is it is not waterproof. So before going out sitting on this ride, you have to check the weather too.
Although the manufacturer claims that this scooter can easily handle a person weighing up to 300 lbs, in reality that is only true on flat surfaces. On a bit hilly road, the performance of this scooter degrades drastically and sometimes you may even be forced to walk because it can be too slow to ride on.
- This scooter has a True Unite 1000-watt motor that produces 3000 rpm. The motor is connected to the rear wheel with a heavy duty chain. It can boost the speed up to 26 mph which makes this scooter faster than most of the scooter in the market.
- The 36-volt lead acid battery can give you a range of up to 18 miles in a single charge.
- Compared to its competitors, this scooter is more comfortable to ride. The seat is very comfortable and you also get an option to choose the size of the seat.
- The dual rear shocks and the extra wide tires also enhance the comfort even on a bumpy road.
- This scooter is easily foldable but very well built.
- You also get an option to choose between Turbo and Eco mode. It also has a LED head light.
Razor E300S – Best one to have fun with
Razor is an old player in the manufacturing of electronic commuters. Razor E300S is the seated version of Razor E300. It is one of the most famous seated scooters as it’s offering a lot with a bare minimum price.
The frame of this scooter is very nicely made with steel and rigid enough. The seat is comfortable enough for an adult and is detachable. So you can just detach the seat and ride it like a kick scooter.
Razor E300S is driven by a high-torque motor and the power is transmitted to the rear wheel with a chain-drive system. This scooter can reach up to a speed of 15 miles per hour.
The scooter is powered by a 24-volt lead acid rechargeable battery pack. This battery can run the scooter up to 40 mins on a single charge based the riding condition. But the disappointment is that the battery takes almost 12 hours to get charged up.
Razor put 10-inch pneumatic tires on this scooter which are good enough to move the scooter even on rocks and pebbles. Only one brake is attached only to the rear wheel and it works okay. Just like E300, Razor E300S also is not quick foldable. So it is only good enough to ride for fun.
- A 24-volt lead acid battery pack is powering this scooter and can run the scooter continuously for 40 mins on a single charge.
- A chain-drive system is used to drive this scooter. It is a rear wheel drive.
- The single brake works okayish but misses few times.
- The 10-inch pneumatic tires are good enough for little rough roads too.
Razor EcoSmart Metro – Stylish yet productive
The frame of this scooter is made of steel but the deck or the footrest is made of bamboo which looks appealing at the first glance.
The tires of this scooter are the reason for which this scooter looks so beautiful. They are 16-inch standard bicycle style pneumatic tube tires on spoke wheels. These are very easily replaceable. There is also a luggage rack attached to the back of this scooter.
It is also equipped with a 500-watt extra high-torque motor attached to the rear wheel. EcoSmart Metro can easily gain speed up to 20 miles per hour.
A battery pack of 36-volt potential is powering this scooter and this can give you 60 minutes of continuous ride. But again just like Razor E300S’s battery is a lead acid, this also takes 12 hours to charge fully.
- The design of this scooter is very appealing.
- It is equipped with a 500-watt extra high torque motor which can speed this up to 20 miles an hour.
- The battery is a 36-volt lead acid one and takes too long to charge. It can power the scooter up to 60 minutes continuously on a single charge.
- The bicycle styled wheels look nice and also easy to steer.
- The seat of this scooter is extra padded and is very comfortable.
- Only a single disc brake is there at the rear wheel.
- There is no indicator for the battery health. SO you have to be careful when you go out on this.
Razor E200S – Most affordable one
Razor E200S and Razor E300S are from the same product line of seated electric scooter by Razor. E200S is the model just a place below the E300S, so they have almost the same specifications and features but only a very few missing on E200S.
Just like the E300S, the E200S is the seated version of Razor E200. But again this scooter can be used just fine with the seat removed.
The motor in this scooter is less powerful than the E300S and can boost the scooter up to a speed of 12 miles per hour. Similar to E300S, the motor is attached to a chain-drive system which transmits the power to the rear wheel. Razor packed a similar battery in both the scooters.
The tires also show that this is a downgraded model to the E300S. This has 8-inch pneumatic tires compared to the 10-inch on E300S. Its braking system is just like the elder brother and so are the controls.
The built of E200S is also very similar to the E300S but this scooter has been a bit trimmed down in the dimensions. This scooter more fits for teenage children rather than adults.
- The top speed of this scooter can reach up to 12 miles an hour.
- It has 8-inch pneumatic tyres.

This battery provides a maximum range of 30 miles on a single charge which is more than any other electric scooter in this list.
This scooter also has a bluetooth speaker in it. Yes, you read it right.

A 48-volt battery system consisting of four 12-volt, 12ah batteries is powering this scooter. The scooter can give you a range of up to 12 miles with a single charge. The scooter also has an Eco mode button. In the Eco mode, the scooter reduces the motor power and can take you up to a much longer distance.

RSF650 looks just like a naked street bike, only a smaller version. The chassis of the bike is made of steel and is fairly rigid and strong. The bike can handle a weight up to 220 lbs which mean not only a teenager but a full grown adult can also enjoy riding this little toy. Though I doubt anybody can use this bike on a day-to-day basis.
The 650-watt high torque motor is powerful enough and is fixed to a chain drive system. The power is delivered to the rear wheel just like a bike. The top speed can reach up to 17 miles an hour.
The 10 spoke wheels are made of magnesium alloy and 12-inch tires are the street grade. The tires had enough grip and provides a quality handling to the bike.
Again just like any other Razor product, this bike also features 36-volt lead acid battery pack. Razor is probably using the lead acid battery on each of their products just to reduce the cost which may be good and bad at the same time. There is also a charger compartment in this bike.

Hey, remember I picked that bike because I want to use it everyday and not just for fun. So, pick yours too reasonably.
While buying any electric motorized vehicle, please check with your local authority if it’s legal to ride these in your area or country. In many places, you need a proper driving license to ride any electric motorized vehicle which can go above a certain speed. This speed limit may vary from place to place.
In many electric motorized commuting vehicles, the motor is locked to gain speed up to a certain limit even though the specs sheet says the top speed to be much higher. So you must always check with the manufacturer about such restrictions before buying.
