How fast do mobility scooters go?

Here at Middletons, we often get asked how fast our mobility scooters go. Choosing the right speed depends on what you want to get out of your mobility scooter and what you want to use it for. For example, if you’re planning on travelling long distances on the road, you might want a faster, heavy-duty scooter. However, if you’re planning on only going shorter distances, you might want a slower scooter.

We offer a range of three maximum speed mobility scooters - 4mph, 6mph and 8mph. They're all suitable for different things, so choose the one that suits you best. Read on to find out the choices available to you...

Our maximum speeds explained…

At number three…

our slowest scooters reach a maximum of 4mph. In this case, slow and steady really does win the race. There is nothing like a leisurely pootle down the road in your mobility scooter to get fresh air, visit a friend, or get your daily tasks done.

You might be looking for a slower scooter because you want to feel comfortable, safe and secure. You're happy to take things at a slower pace and have no desire to go on the road. Bear in mind that these scooters are not suitable for the road. We offer a huge range of scooters that fit this way of life. Feel free to browse below...

If this is the case, go for an 8mph maximum speed limit.
