Best lightweight "car boot" mobility scooters for 2023
Looking for the perfect portable mobility scooter to make life easier? Look no further! Car boot scooters are your ideal companions for exploring new places without draining your energy.
"What's a car boot scooter?" you ask. Well, it's just a fancy name for a compact and portable mobility scooter that can easily fit into your car boot. Unlike those big, bulky "Road Class" machines that need dedicated storage space, these nifty little scooters save the day.
Now, let's talk types! There are two main kinds of car boot scooters:
Foldable Boot Scooters: The most popular ones out there. They fold up as one unit, no fuss, no hassle, except maybe removing the seat if needed. Super convenient!
Dismantling Scooters: These scooters save space by being dismantled. You can unfasten different parts like the seat, battery, and motor end, and fit them snugly in your car boot. Just a heads up, though, dismantling can be a bit tricky, so go for this option if you're up for the challenge.
Thanks to advanced technology, these portable scooters have improved a lot. They're now perfect for everyday use, and some people even keep them in their cars for spontaneous seaside walks or fun family outings.
So, which scooters should you consider for 2023?
Here are our top 5 recommendations:
MicroLite: The world's lightest mobility scooter, weighing only 18.2 kg (40.1 lbs), battery, and seat included. Easy to lift and fold, it leaves plenty of space in your car boot.
SupaLite: Great for tall folks with its 97 cm (34.5") wheelbase. It covers up to 12.8 km (8 miles) and still leaves room for other items in your car boot.
i3 Folding Scooter: Made from aircraft-grade aluminium, it folds in seconds and can be taken on public transport too. Option for two lithium batteries and a Power Lifter for even easier car boot handling.
Di Blasi R30: Press a button, and it folds into a suitcase-like shape. With high ground clearance, low center of gravity, and big wheels, you're in for a stable ride.
SupaScoota Spartan: The champion of portability, supporting up to 32 stone in weight capacity. Recently introduced folding seat to save more space in your car boot.
Now you're all set! Choose your ideal car boot mobility scooter and start exploring with ease. If you've got questions, our friendly mobility professionals are just a call away. Happy scooting!
