How far do mobility scooters go?

Written by

When people buy mobility scooters, one of the most frequently asked questions is 'How far do mobility scooters go?'

The maximum distance that you require depends on how far you travel. It also depends on how much you drive your scooter and how often you want to charge it.

For example, if you use your mobility scooter daily you might not want to charge it every day, therefore you will need a scooter with a much higher maximum distance.

Scooters are great mobility aids because they allow you to continue your daily tasks without needing extra assistance.
