E-scooter vs. E-bike

16. Juli 2018 13:36:10 CEST

Which one to buy - e-scooter or e-bike?

In previous blogs, we talked about e-bikes and e-scooter, but here we will compare the two and show their real-world functionality.


- affordable

- light (7-12 kg)

- designed for smooth surfaces such as asphalt and tiles

- easy to carry and transport, allowed in public transport

In the following examples you can find situations suitable for e-scooters:

- you live 5-10 km away from your work

- you often get stuck in traffic and trip to work takes too long

- you live farther from your work and use e-scooter in combination with public transport

E-scooters are a great way to live the e-mobility lifestyle with little money. In most countries, e-scooters are completely legal with no special restrictions.


- more expensive than e-scooters

- usually heavier than conventional bikes (14-30 kg)

- can ride on any terrain (depending on the frame and tire type)

In the following examples you can find situations suitable for e-bikes:

- transport from home to work, even if you live 20-30 km from your work- long rides and offroad terrain rides

- folding e-bikes are very portable and can enter public transport

- hills

E-bikes do not need insurance if their top speed is 25 km/h and they can always be used as regular bikes.
