E-scooters come in a wide price range, because they differ in their performance (motor, battery, range) and their features (tires, additional functions, …). So there are good models from about 300 euros, but also e-scooters that cost between 1000 and 2500 euros. Which e-scooter is right for you must therefore be decided individually and according to your planned use and your wishes. We have collected the best e-scooters from different price ranges for you.
In Germany, it is clearly regulated whether an e-scooter receives a road permit or not. In addition to the basic equipment (front and rear lights, brakes, bell), the scooter may not travel faster than 20 km/h, may not have more than 500 watts of motor power, and it needs a visible insurance sticker (license plate) and liability insurance. Keep in mind that riding is only allowed from the age of 14 and the bike path or road must be used. Also, an operating license from the Federal Motor Vehicle Department is required. Therefore, inform yourself before buying so that you do not spend a lot of money and end up not being allowed to drive or risk a fine.
