Having an electric scooter is always related to having an economical means of transportation.
But exactly how much does it cost to own one?
Travelling with an electric scooter is considered a relatively economical way of transportation. In spite of that fact, there are some significant and essential costs that should be covered regularly.
Of course, the first step of owning an electric scooter is its purchase. In the last few years, many companies started their eco-mobility business, so there are lots of options on the market.
Prices may vary from 250€ to extra orbital 6.800€. Can you believe it?
The more features there are, the higher is the price. Despite all, you don’t need to buy the most expensive model, in order to get good quality and advanced technical features. Normally, the most expensive part of the electric scooters is their battery, which happens to be a ⅓ part of the total price.
Other factors which have an influence on the cost of having an electric scooter are the daily commutes and, more precisely, their distance range and frequency.
For an average use of the electric scooter, the charge costs are at most 4-5 euros per month, which is a tiny overpay amount. Having this in mind, one can decide if to invest more money in the purchase and then compensate it with the monthly charge costs.
Maintenance costs are perhaps the most unpredictable spendings. Usually, the companies are offering a 1-year warranty.
Warranties can be applied only if the issues are technical and not due to misuse and improper preservation of the electric scooter and its spare parts. So, make sure you maintain your scooter properly if you want to avoid spending additional money.

Customization is a service offered by many companies. Nowadays, people are looking for more diversity and ways to express themselves and be unique. That is why the brands want to fulfil their clients’ needs and help them find their perfect product.
When referring to electric scooters, you can choose between a big variety of models and designs, in order to discover the one that truly corresponds to your expectations. But you need to know that every additional change, especially when it comes from the factory, will cost you a fortune. So if you are looking for an economical electric scooter, customization related to the design is not your option.
Possibilities, like colour stickers and other decorative elements, are also in the market, so that you can stick to a low budget and at the same time, personalize your electric scooter.
Now that we have all the fixed and variable costs, we can make an estimation of the final amount.
Let’s imagine that you decide to purchase an electric scooter for 350€. Your charge cost for a whole year will be around 48-60 € (12×4/5). This means that if you apply proper maintenance of the scooter, the total cost for having an electric scooter will be 400€.
Considering all the options for electric scooters and comparing them with other eco-friendly vehicles, we can admit that they are the most economical means of transportation and can offer the best way of alternative travelling.
