Top 15 Foldable Electric Scooter With Seat for Adults in 2021 

 November 18, 2020

By  Rando

Foldable electric scooters for commuting are extremely popular and the demand for electric scooters are very high. Finding the right electric scooter for yourself is not easy because everyone has their own specific needs and preferences. It can take a very long time to find the right e-scooter for your needs and very often people won't find the scooter they are looking for.

It is not easy to find foldable electric scooters with seat for adults, which is why I made a list of the best electric folding scooter with seat. Seated electric scooters are not easy to find but lots of people want a seated electric scooter rather than a standing one. Many of these foldable e-scooters on this list come with an attached seat while for others it is an added option. 

I have put together a list of the 15 best foldable electric scooters with seat for adults that range from expensive and powerful scooters to more basic and affordable electric scooters. 

1. Smacircle S1 Foldable Electric Scooter with Seat for Adults

This innovative fold up electric scooter with seat is most likely the most compact electric scooter in this list. The design of the Smacircle S1 is very different from all the other e-scooters and it has been designed for individuals who want an ultra portable electric scooter with a seat.

The innovative folding mechanism of the S1 e-scooter allows you to fit it in the S1 special bag or backpack. In addition the light carbon fiber frame and innovative seating position, makes this scooter stand out. The Smacircle S1 has certainly set a new trend in the world of electric scooters.

Smacircle S1 Foldable Electric Scooter with Seat for Adults
  • The Smacircle S1 has a 250 Watt motor and Samsung Rechargeable
    Lithium Battery.
  • The top speed is 20 km/h or 12.5 mph.
  • The frame is made out of carbon fiber.
  • The scooter weight is only 11.2 pounds with a max carrying capacity of 100 kg.
  • The range is up to 20 km or 12.5 miles and charging time is 3.5 hours.
  • It has a IPX-4 water resistance rating.
  • Folded dimensions: 29 cm x 53 cm x 20 cm.
  • Unfolded dimensions:95 cm x 86 cm x 47 cm.
  •  Wheel size is 8 inches.
  •  Electric throttle and braking system.
  • Smacircle App to monitor the riding.
  • 2 modes: Normal and Sport mode.

Smacircle S1 Summary

 

85% Overall

The top speed of 20 km/h is certainly not very high but in an urban city environment there is no need for a super fast scooter. The S1 has not been designed for max speed in mind but rather compactness and portability.

Also the range of 12.5 miles or 20 km should be more than enough for your daily commutes to work. In addition the Samsung lithium rechargeable battery recharges in just 3.5 hours and the battery is detachable.

The scooter folds down to a very compact 29 cm x 53 cm x 20 cm, which is small enough to fit in the specially designed Smacircle S1 bag, which unfortunately you need to buy separately. The weight of the S1 e-scooter is just 11.2 kg and if without the battery the scooter only weighs 8.6 kg-s.

The S1 has a 100 kg max weight limit, like with many other popular e-scooters, such as the Xiaomi 1S. It is not designed for heavier riders and it only has a IPX4 water resistance rating. This means the scooter has not been designed to be driven through more than 2 cm of water.


The Smacircle S1 has not been designed for very heavy and big adults obviously and this type of scooter is not for everyone. But there certainly is a demand for these types of seated electric scooters for adults as well. It is a very practical scooter and you can be sure that you will get plenty of attention when riding this scooter.

2. Stigo B1 Foldable Electric Scooter with Seat for Adults

The Stigo B1 is also similar to the Smacircle S1 in a sense that it is ultra portable, lightweight, practical and functional commuter scooter for daily use in an urban environment.

The Stigo company is based in Estonia and founded by Skype founder Jaan Tallinn and Rainer Nõlvak. It has won several awards for its unique design and elegance. The B1 is the latest generation of Stigo scooters with improved suspension, larger wheels and enhanced performance.

It has a unique design and practical value that many people look for. Although you can't fit the Stigo B1 in your backpack like the Smacircle S1, it does have dolly wheels which makes it easy to carry along.

Stigo B1 Fold-up Electric Scooter Summary

 

85% Overall

The Stigo B1 has been designed for the stylish urban dweller. It can be combined with any form of transport whether it be train, tram, bus, car or even a boat. since it is lightweight and folds in just seconds, it can be taken with you anywhere.


The weight of the scooter is a very light 37 pounds or 16.8 kg. The maximum carrying capacity of 120 kg or 265 pounds. It folds together in just 2 seconds, which is a really great design feature.


The dimensions of 1190 mm x 490 mm x 860 mm (L x W x H) are also very compact. The easy folding mechanism and small dimensions make this a real winner.

The folding is very simple and you just need to pull out the linchpin from the lower suspension joint and the rear wheel then folds inward reducing the storage footprint of the Stigo by 1/3 from the unfolded position.

 In addition the handlebars also sides into the stem, which makes it very convenient to fit the scooter in your car trunk. It also comes with rear shock suspension.

The frame is constructed out of aluminium and the brakes are cable operated. The 14-inch wheels are big enough to easily go over smaller bumps and comfortably ride on rougher surfaces as well.


Since the weight limit for the Stigo B1 is 265 pounds it can handle heavier adults than the Smacircle S1 and is more comfortable to ride as well thanks to the bigger wheels.

3. FIIDO Electric Folding Scooter with Seat

The FIIDO foldable electric scooter with a seat is different from the other two previous e-scooters. The FIIDO has been designed for those commuters who need some storage space for their groceries for example.

The FIIDO electric seat scooter is the ideal scooter for just this type of commuter. The FIIDO electric scooter has lots of features and functions that make it an ideal commuter scooter for heavier adults as well.

It is not a scooter for office workers but rather a practical scooter for those adults who are a little heavier and little older.

FIIDO Electric Scooter Summary

 

85% Overall

The 250 Watt motor is geared, meaning the motor is able to work at a much higher and more efficient speeds. This means more power output and torque. The top speed on 15 mph that the 250 Watt geared motor is able to reach, is more than enough for city commutes.

Also the range of 18 miles or 30 km is plenty for most daily commutes and since the charging time is only 3-4 hours, you don't have to wait too long to get your scooter charged.

A seated electric scooter, such as the FIIDO, needs to be comfortable to ride as well. It is certainly not fun to ride nearly 20 miles on a scooter without any suspension. Not only has the FIIDO a suspension but it also has padded seat with memory foam.

The large 12-inch air-filled tires also add lots of comfort and these tires are much larger than standard electric scooter tires. The suspension along with the large tires makes it easy to tackle any potholes and rough terrain.

Front and rear disc brakes of the FIIDO seated electric scooter are also an essential feature. Disc brakes are very reliable and work really well. It is very important to have reliable brakes if you ride in a city environment with lots of traffic.


A major benefit of the FIIDO electric seat scooter is the 330 pound max weight limit. Most electric scooters have a 200-220 pound weight limit, which means that heavier riders are unable to use them. Well, they are able to use them of course but it just nulls the warranty in such a case.

Another major benefit is the considerable storage space that is available. VoroMotors did a test and they were able to store 105 oranges in a single trip. These basket are not just for sure but are actually incredibly practical.

4. Emove Cruiser Electric Folding Scooter with Seat

The Emove Cruiser is a standard commuter electric scooter that comes with an optional seat that you need to buy separately. 

The Emove Cruiser is a very powerful e-scooter with long range and lots of speed and acceleration. 

It has very solid build quality, high quality braking and suspension system and can handle heavy adults. 

This electric scooter is suitable for those individuals who want power, speed and range out of a e-scooter. The standard Emove Cruiser does not come with a seat and you need to buy the seat separately. The seat itself can be attached and detached quickly and easily.

Emove Cruiser 

Electric Scooter Summary

 

95% Overall

The Emove Cruiser is a very highly rated electric scooter with lots of power, speed, acceleration and long range. It is not your standard rental e-scooter.


The 2020 EMOVE Cruiser electric scooter has a range of up to 62 miles when fully charged thanks to the 52V 30AH LG battery. The maximum load capacity is 352 pounds or 160 kg. It also has an aggressive look and iconic style.

The 2020 version has no inner tubes and has pneumatic car grade tires. This means that you won't have to deal with inner tubes bursting or dealing with oily sealant.


The handlebars are foldable, which makes it easy to store the scooter in your car trunk, carry it up the stairs or store it in your home or office corner. The wide deck of the scooter is also a great feature, allowing people to ride with comfort and providing better balance.

The maximum speed of the EMOVE Cruiser is a solid 45km/h or 25 mph. This is achieved thanks to the 600 Watt motor with 1,600 watt peak power output. The Cruiser can reach 15 mph in 3.4 seconds and 20 mph in just 5.8 seconds. It is also possible to set the speed limiting wire yourself since it does not come with the speed limiting wire set.

The EMOVE Cruiser has front and rear XTECH hydraulic brakes. These brakes work really well although they might take a bit of adjustment to get right, which is super easy on this scooter.

The scooter also has rear air suspension and front spring suspension, which makes the ride very comfortable. Along with the 10-inch pneumatic tires and wide deck, the ride on this electric scooter is very smooth and relaxed even for long distances. The scooter weight of 54 pounds is heavy enough to absorb a lot of the vibrations from riding but still light enough to carry along for short distances.


Like I mentioned before the seat option is available but needs to be purchased separately and costs an extra $65 from VoroMotors. Considering how long the battery lasts it would be wise to purchase the seat even if you feel you don't need one.

5. Emove Touring Electric Folding Scooter with Seat

Just like the Emove Cruiser, the Emove Touring is top of the line electric scooter for adults. It is vert similar in many ways but it is less powerful and a cheaper option.

The standard version of the Emove Touring does not come with a seat and the seat needs to be purchased separately as well.

The Emove Touring is lighter with a bit less power, speed and range than the Cruiser but it is a bit more practical especially for city commutes. 

If you are looking for a high quality top notch e-scooter with seat that still packs a lot of power and has much more range than your standard scooter then the Emove Touring is your number one choice.

The EMOVE Touring has a top speed of 24 mph or 38.5 km/h. The 500 Watt motor has the power to accelerate to 15 mph in 4.5 seconds as well. It has plenty of top speed and acceleration to easily ride through urban environment swiftly but it is not a "monster" scooter with speed and acceleration that are hard to control.
48V 13AH LG battery with battery management system protection has a range of 25 miles when fully charged. In real world conditions it might be a bit lower but it is still more than enough for most. For example the Xiaomi M365 has a range of 18.5 miles.
The EMOVE Touring has excellent brakes as well and is able to come to a full stop from 15 mph in 16.6 feet. It has rear wheel drum and regenerative braking. Ideally there could have been front braking as well but it doesn't affect braking that much.The Emove Touring has long range at up to 25 miles and the battery itself will last for a long time.
It has a large deck and a compact size, which makes it deal for long rides and bringing the scooter along wherever you need to go. The weight of 39 pounds or 17 kg makes it light enough to carry along. 
It has enough speed and acceleration to keep up with the traffic.
The front and rear suspension make the ride very comfortable and smooth. The braking system is also one of the best. It is the first electric scooter in the world that is built with triple suspension system that adds tons of comfort without looking complex.


Just like with the Emove Cruiser, you need to buy the seat separately for $65 from the VoroMotors store. It is certainly more comfortable to ride long distances with a seat.

7. Apollo City Electric Scooter with Folding Seat

There are several electric scooters in the Apollo fleet, such as the Apollo City, Apollo Explore, Apollo Light, Apollo Pro and Apollo Ultra. 

The Apollo scooters do not come with a seat in the standard version and you need to purchase the seat separately, just like with the Emove electric scooters. The good thing is that the seat fits on all of the Apollo electric scooters.

The Apollo City is a very highly rated scooter from the Apollo fleet and many consider it to be the best urban commuter electric scooter for $1000. It is hard to argue against this but no scooter is perfect and the Apollo City is no exception.

With plenty of quality, great design, speed, range, rider comfort and portability, the overall package is very tough to beat.

Electric Scooter Summary

With plenty of quality, great design, speed, range, rider comfort and portability, the overall package is very tough to beat.

With a weight of 18 kg or 39 pounds, top speed of 40 km/h and a range of 28 miles or 45 km, the overall package is fits the needs of most urban commuters. It is light enough to be carried to public transport, folds compactly together, has plenty of range and speed to boot.

The Apollo City can reach a speed of 20 mph in 6.9 seconds and 25 mph in 11.9 seconds. The top speed is considerably better when compared to the top speed of 15 mph for the Xiaomi M365 and Ninebot Max G30.

The 600 Watt brushless electric motor has plenty of power most hills without a problem. The maximum peak output for the motor is 800 Watts and it is highly efficient motor as well with a energy conversion rate of 86%.

 The 48V 13.2aH battery powered by Dynavolt cells have a range of 28 miles in eco mode and about 18-22 miles at full speed and real world conditions.

What makes the Apollo City a very safe electric scooter are the brakes that feature three independent braking systems. The front wheel has a disc brake and the rear wheel has a drum brake, as well as the regenerative break. The scooter comes to a full stop from a speed of 15 mph in just 12.2 feet, which is an excellent result. The brakes on the Apollo City are one of the safest and strongest you can get.

The ride quality is also excellent due to the front and rear spring suspension, as well as the pneumatic tires. There is also plenty of deck size even for people with fairly large feet. The suspension can handle a 265 pound or 120 kg rider while still providing plenty of shock absorption. Although it is designed to be an on-road scooter it can handle some off-road tracks and dirt trails as well.

If the Apollo City is not for you then don't worry because there are other high quality scooters in the Apollo fleet. The overall ratings and feedback from clients for all the Apollo scooters is very high and you certainly won't be disappointed.

8. Dualtron Thunder Foldable Electric Scooter with Seat for Adults

The Dualtron electric scooters from the MiniMotors company are known for being some of the most powerful, fastest and long range scooters available on the market.

Just like with Apollo and Emove electric scooters the seat has to be purchased separately from the MiniMotors online store. 

The Dualtron Thunder is an extremely powerful electric scooter for adults, although not the most powerful in the Dualtron fleet.

This is not your standard commuter scooter that you can ride for work and back. It has been designed for raw power, speed and range. It is one of those scooters that you take out over the weekend to have fun with. The only problem is that the Dualtron Thunder comes with a high price tag.

Dualtron Thunder

 Electric Scooter Summary

 

90% Overall

The Dualtron electric scooters really are for adults and they absolutely blow away other scooter in terms of pwoer, speed and range. 

A 5,400 watt BLDC dual hub motor that reached a top speed of 50 mph and the 2,060 Wh battery has a maximum range of up to 75 miles. 

In comparison most commuter electric scooters have a top speed of 15 mph and a max range of less than 20 miles. 

But it is not just the power and range that are outstanding with the Dualtron Thunder but also the brakes and suspension. A fully adjustable 3step variable suspension system, which is coupled with replaceable rubber cartridges allows you to customize your suspension. Softer cartridges are for lighter riders and cooler climates, while harder cartridges are for heavier rider and hotter climates.

Unlike other electric scooters the Dualtron Thunder comes with ABS braking system and hydraulic brakes. You obviously must have very reliable brakes when riding at speeds of 50 mph. 

The weight of the scooter is 95 pounds, which is much heavier than other foldable electric scooters for adults. But it needs to be heavy to be stable and carry the motor and battery. The scooter is foldable but you will most likely not be able to carry the scooter up the stairs.

The scooter can handle a 265 maximum load, which is higher than most scooters but there are Dualtron electric scooters that have higher maximum load capacity. 

The frame and handles of the Dualtron Thunder is made out aviation grade 6082-T6 aluminum alloy, the shaft is made out of SCM440 steel and covers are made out of plastic.

The major drawback of the Dualtron Thunder is its price tag, which is $3,699.00 and that is a discount price.

9. Turbowheel Lightning + Foldable Electric Scooter with Seat for Adults

There are lots of high speed electric scooters for adults you can buy, such as the Dualtron Thunder for example. But for most people the price tag is a little too much. Also it is is not very practical as well. The Turbowheel Lightning + on the other hand is a much better choice for several reasons.

The seat again has to be purchased separately and costs $119, which is quite expensive but the Turbowheel Lightning + is expensive as well.

The Lightning + is an upgraded version of the Turbowheel Lightning scooter model. It comes with several new and improved upgrades that add lots of value.

It is a little lighter than the Dualtron Thunder but still has plenty of power and range.

The upgraded dual motors of the Lightning + offer a stunning 1200 watts of sustained power with 3,600 watts of peak power. The maximum cruising speed is a stunning 45 mph or 72 km/h. The standard electric scooter, such as the M365, only goes 15 mph.

 The speed and especially the acceleration of the dual 1,200 motor is scary. It has plenty of power to go up most hills without even slowing down.
The 60v battery pack with a capacity of 21Ah/1260Wh has an established range of 50+ miles when fully charged. This scooter will solve the problem of low battery because most people just won’t reach this point.


The Lightning + electric scooter is fitted with large brake pads and Nutt hydraulic brake kit, which makes the braking more effective and precise than with cable braking.
The front and rear suspension have spring and hydraulic damper with adjustable screw setting. It easily absorbs all the bumps and potholes on the road.


The weight of the scooter is 77 pounds, which is considerably heavier than your standard scooters. It is a bit of a downside but it is inevitable for such high powered motors and long lasting batteries.


The maximum rider weight is 330 pounds or 150 kg, which is really great news for heavier riders.
The Turbowheel Lightning + is fitted with front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, as well as the regenerative braking power from the motors.

The Turbowheel Lightning + is available at eWheels and you need to purchase the seat separately, which will cost you $119. 

Both the Turbowheel Lightning + and Zero 10x are rebranded versions of the T10-DDM, which means they are identical with minor differences.

Turbowheel Dart

Electric Scooter Summary

 

90% Overall

The Turbowheels Dart is the updated version of the Speedway Mini 4 and the same scooter as the Zero 9 with some updates.

The Dart electric scooter has an improved LG MG26 cells battery pack, which provides greater reliability and performance. The Zero 9 on the other hand has Chinese produced Sincpower cells, which are not as reliable.

The Turbowheel Dart also has a higher performance front disc brake which the Zero 9 does not have.

The LG 614Wh battery pack can provide up to 30 miles distance at moderate cruising speed although in real world conditions this will be lower. 

The 600 Watt hub motor with 1200 Watts of peak output has a top speed of up to 25 mph or 40 km/h, which is not as fast as the Lightning + but is still very fast. 

The Turbowheel Dart also has improved suspension system with the dual shock-damper system instead of spring suspension. The dual shock-damper system provides a smoother ride. 

The maintenance of the Turbowheel Dart is made easier as well with the battery & controller are accessed from the top deck plate. 

The lightning system with front headlights, rear brake lights and illuminated LED strips on the deck and handlebar stem, provide plenty of visibility in low light conditions.

The Dart electric scooter is a little heavy at 39.5 pounds but is still considerably lighter than the Turbowheel lightning + at 77 pounds. 

One major drawback of the Dart electric scooter is the 220 pound weight limit. The Lightning + has a 330 pound weight limit in comparison so The Dart scooter is not suitable for heavier riders. 

The Turbowheel Dart electric scooter and the seat can both be purchased from eWheels and eWheels also offers a 1-year warranty, spare parts and upgrades.

11. UBERSCOOT 1600W 48V Electric Scooter with Seat for Adults

The UberScoot 1600 Watt electric scooter with seat for adults is a different type of scooter. First of all it comes with a seat already attached, unlike many other scooters in this list and secondly it is an all terrain scooter with knobby tires.

It is not easy to find electric scooters, such as the UberScoot 1600 W scooter because most scooters on the market are for commuting in city environments rather than all terrain scooters. And all terrain e-scooters generally don't come with a seat.

Considering what you get with this electric scooter the price of $750 is actually very cheap.

It also features variable speed twist throttle and chain driven drive system.

The scooter weight is 117 pounds, which 38 pounds heavier than the 1000 Watt UberScoot model.
The maximum carrying capacity is 265 pounds.

The seat of the UberScoot 1600 W scooter can easily attached and detached. Some might prefer riding this scooter standing while others prefer sitting. This is a great option to have and you don't have to buy the seat separately.

The 265 pound weight limit also allows heavier adults to ride the scooter. The only issue with this electric scooter is the 117 pound weight so it is not a scooter you can easily carry.

Although the scooter is heavy it has plenty of torque and speed and the range is surprisingly good as wel. Overall the UberScoot 1600W seated e-scooter for adults is really a hidden gem and certainly worth the $750 price tag.

13. Hiboy S2 Lightweight Folding Electric Scooter with Seat

There are lots of affordable and lightweight electric scooters available but very few of them have a seat option. It is really unfortunate that so many manufacturers have missed this because some people don't want to stand on a scooter for long periods of time. The Hiboy S2 electric scooter is one of the best scooters that fits these criteria.

Unlike many of the adult electric scooters with a seat in this list, the Hiboy S2 is a lightweight commuter scooter. It is not bulky and comes with powerful motor, plenty of speed and range, quality brakes, tires and shock absorbers.

Many consider the Xiaomi M365 or the Ninebot E22E to be best commuter electric scooters but the Hiboy S2 holds its own, especially with the added seat option.

Electric Scooter Summary

 

90% Overall

The max speed of 18.6 mph and range of 12-17 miles are fairly standard for a scooter in this price range. The Hiboy S2 has 2 speeds modes: comfort mode and sport mode. The riding mode can be changed by double tapping on the dashboard screen: red indicates sport mode and green comfort mode.

The range and top speed estimates have been achieved in ideal riding conditions. So it is expected if you don't reach exactly these numbers. The heavier the rider, the shorter the range, the slower speed and acceleration.

The Hiboy S2 App is a very useful with lots of neat features, such as:

Cruise control and customized speed
Customized acceleration brake response
Scooter locking ability for security
One click simple pairing
Easy riding mode change

The double braking system of the Hiboy S2 is really effective. The rear disc brake along with the front eABS braking works really well. The handlebars are not height adjustable so very tall or very short people might find this a little uncomfortable. 

You can ride with the seat or without the seat. Riding with the seat makes it more comfortable over long commutes and the ergonomic design of the seat also adds more comfort.

Another benefit is the 260 pound weight limit. Most scooters in this price range, such as the Xiaomi M365 have a 220 pound weight limit. If you weigh over 220 pounds and under 260 then the Hiboy S2 is ideal.

Mercane Widewheel Pro Electric Scooter Summary

 

93% Overall

Mercane Widewheel has always been known as the go-to electric scooter for power and torque. The acceleration is better due to the dual 500W motors, rather than a single $1000 motor.

This output allows the Widewheel to climb inclines up to 40 degrees steep. Reaching a top speed of 40-45 kilometres per hour (25-28 miles per hour), the Widewheel is more than enough for city riders and off-roaders alike. 

The all new 48V 15aH highly-efficient lithium ion battery represents a significant step-up from the 2019 model. Designed to last for minimum 500-600 charge cycles, the Widewheel 2020 battery should have a minimum lifespan of 2.5-3 years assuming 4 full charges per week, and offer range of 40-45 kilometers per charge.

The dual spring suspension is very comfortable suspension is coupled with the ultra-wide tires to create a stable and comfortable riding experience.

The LCD display features riding statistics such as speed, trip distance, battery voltage remaining, battery charge remaining, along with riding mode and settings (cruise control).

The Mercane Widewheel Pro comes equipped with two disc brakes (120mm) - one in the rear and an additional one in the front. This dramatically reduces braking distance and improves handling while braking. Each brake is controlled by a separate handle for ultimate riding comfort.

Also the neck, fork, and neck parts have been created from new molds and using new, stronger metal blends. This strengthens components that are the most damage-prone and significantly improves the durability of the Widewheel Pro.

Improved LED lights in the front, braking lights in the rear of the scooter. Fast and stable folding mechanism coupled with folding handlebars. Puncture-resistant airless tires made with condensed foam and rubber.

The Widewheel Pro is available at the Apollo store for $1,099.00 and with the seat cost of $79 the overall value for money is very impressive.

Mototec Thor Electric Scooter Summary

 

93% Overall

At first glance it might seem like the Mototec Thor is not overly impressive electric scooter for adults but if you take a closer look you will be surprised how good this scooter actually is.

Dual 1200 Watt hub motors gives this scooter enormous amount of power and enables it to reach a top speed of 40 mph or 65 km/h. 

The range of the 60v/21Ah Lithium Ion battery is also very impressive at 25-29 miles. This is more than enough range for most people.

The dual shocks along with the front and rear disc brakes add plenty of comfort stability and stopping power that you wouldn't necessarily expect.

There are many more impressive features, such as LCD panel with speedometer, odometer, cruise control, USB charging socket and 9 adjustable speeds.

The 310 maximum weight capacity along with the seat make this scooter a very good choice for older and heavier adults. There are very few electric  scooters for adults that have a seat and a 310 pound weight capacity. 

The Mototec Thor is certainly worth the $1000 price tag and the major problem is that this scooter is not widely distributed and can often be out of stock.
