Many of us have enjoyed riding a rentable electric scooter. They’re found all over the streets of large cities and have become the preferred method of transportation for many commuters. For many of us who want to get around, our travel times usually include trips at night. Not only is a nighttime ride on an electric scooter without lights annoying, it can also be very dangerous.
That is why we’ve explored some of the best electric scooters with lights. Here are our top 10 in 2020!

If you’re looking for a cool and affordable way to get around town, this scooter could be just for you. The 853 Pro electric scooter from MotoTec is one of the best options for commuters. It features a minimalistic but classy design and has enough power to get you from A to B. We love that it already comes equipped with an LED headlight and taillight, keeping you safe and visible—even in evening or night riding.
Featuring a magnesium alloy frame and an aluminum alloy handlebar tube, this is a lightweight scooter at only 29 lbs. (13 kg). Don’t be deceived though, this scooter can easily transport commuters of up to 265 lbs. (120 kg). It’s got all the features you would want on an electric scooter, easily folding handlebars, Bluetooth and app compatibility, a speedometer on the digital display, and a battery charger. It also has a waterproof rating of IP54, meaning than it can tolerate dust and some wetness.
Powered by a 350-watt brushless motor, you can easily use this electric scooter on your daily commute as it travels up to 18 mph (29 kph). Thanks to the 36V 7.5Ah lithium-ion battery, it’s also capable of traveling 18 miles (29 kilometers) in between charges.
Electronic and mechanical rear disc brakes keep you feeling safe and 8.5-inch puncture-proof tires mean less chance a flat. This is definitely an affordable option for those who want a no-fuss way to get around. However, if you’re after high speed or extended off-road use, you might want to look at another model.

Doesn’t this scooter just look like it’s ready for adventure? The Wolf Warrior 11 combines high-speed technology with fun and durable features. Getting around in low light conditions won’t be an issue with this electric scooter. It comes equipped with powerful dual front LEDs. Not just that, but the scooter is supplemented by rear LEDs and an LED on each side. Needless to say, you’ll be like a wolf hunting at night when you hop on this awesome electric scooter!
Supplementing the safety features of the lights, this electric scooter comes equipped with full hydraulic brakes and has the option for enabling an ABS system to ensure the most accurate braking.
The 101-pound (45 kg) beast comes equipped with two powerful 1200-watt motors and can easily reach speeds of up to 50 mph (80 kph) and climb hills of up to 30% incline. The power comes from a 60V 35Ah LG lithium-ion battery and on eco/ single drive mode, the scooter can get 70 miles (112 km) between charges.
Some other awesome features include 11-inch tubeless tires, a front and rear hydraulic and spring suspension system, and a display. Topping out at 101 lbs. (45 kg), this is one of the heavier (and more expensive) scooters on list.
3. Unagi The Model One

This has been referred to by manufacturers as the Tesla of the electric scooter world. It actually uses the same carbon fiber materials as Elon Musk SpaceX Rockets! Needless to say, it is equipped with elegant, quality features that will definitely turn heads when you’re cruising to work or to your favorite destination. It comes equipped with cool features like the option to choose from 18 cool patterns to decorate your scooter with (and even the ability to design your own!).
The handlebar incorporates minimalistic design and top structural engineering feats to make things super easy for riders while also ensuring a safe and comfortable ride. Integrated into the top bar are standard things like the brake, horn, and throttle. In addition, there is an LED headlight that looks sleek but still provides enough light to navigate nighttime city streets. It is super powerful with 47 lumens and is accompanied by a rear blinking red LED light. Some reviewers even comment on how the lights enable them to see at night.
The other features that we love include puncture free rubber tires, a lightweight body manufactured with magnesium, and two motor choices—either 250 watts or 500 watts. Using the upgraded option, riders can tackle up to 15 degrees of incline and travel at speeds of up to 17 mph (27 kph).
4. Boosted Rev

Touted as the vehicle grade scooter, the Rev model from the famous Boosted brand offers a variety of features to ensure the best ride for any commuter or adventurer. It’s stronger than some of the other models out there making it one of the most reliable electric scooters on the market. Not just that, but it offers safety features that include lights.
Using one of the brightest lights out there, the Rev uses powerful 400 Lumen headlights. What does this mean for riders? Optimal visibility, even at night. Topping that off, there is a red light atop the rear fender that even functions as a brake light for additional safety.
If you’re looking for other safety features, you’d be impressed to find that the Boosted Rev offers three different types of braking—mechanical disc brakes, rear fender brakes, and electric regenerative braking. This gives riders the capacity to easily stop on a dime and incorporates responsive control and intuitive design to keep you safe.
As far as performance goes, riders can accelerate from 0 to 20 mph in just over 4 seconds. Reaching top speeds of 24 mph (38 kph) is a breeze thanks to the dual wheel drive powered by a 1500-watt motor. This motor also allows you to tackle hills with up to a 25% incline, meaning sweat-free riding. Thanks to advanced battery technology, you can also travel 22 miles (35 km) between charges.
The Boosted brand is certainly a well-respected brand for a reason—and the Boosted Rev is no exception. As such, it has a slightly higher price tag.
5. Super Turbo 1000 Elite LED Edition

If you’re looking for lights this might be the best electric scooter option out there. The Super Turbo 1000-Elite is a great scooter to begin with, but the LED edition is even better for nighttime riders. Equipped with not only a high-quality LED headlight, this model also includes various undercarriage lights that come in your choice of red, green, or blue LED.
You might be wondering how the price of this electric scooter is so low. The batteries are the most expensive component in any electric-type vehicle, especially those that use lithium-ion batteries. In the Super Turbo 1000-Elite, a deep cell lead acid battery is used instead. It contains 36V 12Ah of battery capacity and is capable of a longer life and longer run time on each charge compared to other batteries. In fact, the range on this model is 10-18 miles per charge (16-28 km).
The 1000-watt motor is responsible for speeds of up to 27 mph (43 kph) on this model, and it is capable of travelling up small hills using heavy duty chain drive. The unconventional battery in this electric scooter does make it slightly heavier than other options, so if you’ll need to store your scooter in a small space or will be required to lift it for any reason, you may want to go with a different model.
6. Jetson Quest Folding Electric Scooter

Whether you’re looking for a fun way to cruise around or just a carbon-friendly way to travel, the Jetson Quest has become a go-to scooter for many, and it may be just what you need. It’s a reviewer-friendly electric scooter that combines modern innovations and packs powerful features into a small, lightweight package.
The scooter comes with safety features that include a manual hand brake, an LCD display, and a bright LED headlight as well as fun deck lights. It also has Bluetooth and is app compatible. The 250-watt hub motor contributes to a max speed of up to 15 mph (24 kph) and a powerful throttle means that the scooter can easily climb inclines of around 15 degrees.
The battery included into the Jetson Quest is a 36V 7.5Ah lithium-ion battery that is not removable but can go up to 18 miles (29 km) between charges and only takes 4-6 hours to charge. If you’re looking for an affordable and easy to ride and carry scooter, this is the one for you!

7. Dualtron Thunder

We couldn’t even start to wrap up this list without including the Dualtron Thunder on it. This is one of the best scooters on the market today. If you’re looking for strength, power, durability, and just an all-around cool ride, the Dualtron Thunder is for you. Not only does it include powerful front and rear LED lighting, but you can also spice up your ride with blue bottom mood lights. Even better, you can choose the color of your illuminated handlebar! To say that this electric scooter is perfect for nighttime rides is an understatement.
Moving on to performance, the Dualtron Thunder is in a class of its own. It features a MAX 5400-watt BLDC dual hub motor and is powered by an LG 60V 35Ah battery. This leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to getting from A to B. A 75-mile max range (120 kilometers) and a 50 mph (80 km) max speed—what more could you want?!
When you cruise around on the Dualtron Thunder, you’ll not only feel excited by all of its power, but you’ll also feel safe and comfortable. 4-inch tubeless tires support the five-cartridge adjustable suspension system to keep you feeling comfy—even on bouncy roads or off-road terrain. Hydraulic brakes with ABS standard and disks allow you to come to a complete stop. These brakes are in a class of their own. It’s all topped off by an aviation-grade frame and handle—you can trust this electric scooter to last for years.
The only downside to this scooter is its price—it’s a worthy investment, but certainly a big investment, too.
8. InMotion L8F

The L8F combines everything you need in a fun and minimalistic package. Oh yeah, and it looks super cool at night! The L8F not only comes equipped with a bright headlight and a rear wheel brake light, but it also features a customizable RGB LED strip to make nighttime riding even more exciting. You can choose from tons of different color combinations and even a few animations, too!
As far as the performance of the scooter itself, we can’t really complain. Incorporating some features of a kick scooter, like a rear foot brake, this is a great electric scooter for anyone who wants a more traditional ride. Don’t let that fool you though, the scooter is still powered with a 250-watt brushless motor capable of reaching speeds of up to 18.5 mph (30 kph). Thanks to an LG 36V 8.7Ah battery, riders will love that they can travel up to 22 miles (35 km) between charges.
What are some of the other cool features of the L8F electric scooter? It can be paired with the InMotion smartphone app to monitor riding stats and adjust the RGB light scheme. It’s also lightweight and portable, making it great for those who need to use public transportation. When all is said and done, this is a great affordable option for those of us who want to get around in night. The only downside to the L8F is that the app can be kind of confusing and it’s definitely not the most powerful scooter out there.
9. Levy Pro

When it comes to safety, the Levy Pro has you covered—from front to back. Bright LED headlights in the front as well as a taillight in the back keep you feeling confident, even at night. The safety features don’t just stop there. The Levy Pro comes equipped with a rear disc brake, a back-fender brake, and a front e-brake to ensure safe stopping.
When it comes to ease of use, the Levy Pro has incorporated features to satisfy riders. The battery is removable, meaning that it’s protected from weather damage and is easy to charge. A second one can be purchased to swap out on the go—never before has charging been so simple!
Not just that, but the 36V 10.4Ah LG battery is fast charging and contributes to a range of 18 miles (29 km) when using Eco mode. The motor in the Levy Pro is 700 watts and can produce maximum speeds of 18 mph (29 kph). The entire scooter weighs just 30 lbs. (13 kg)—a tiny package with a lot of power!

As the last electric scooter with lights on our list, this one also happens to be the most budget-friendly, at just under $400. If you just want an easy way to beat traffic and have a little fun on your daily commute, the Hiboy Max is for you. When it comes to light, the Hiboy Max is great—it includes dual headlights which allow for safer use at night. Additionally, the rear fender light also functions as a brake light which means that you’ll be safer around other scooters, cyclists, and drivers.
As far as performance goes, you’ll love the power that comes from this small-but-mighty electric scooter. It’s been designed to incorporate one of the most advanced long-range batteries available and riders can anticipate a maximum range of 17 miles (27 km). Maximum speeds of nearly 19 mph (30 kph) are all due to the powerful 350-watt motor that is also capable of 15-degree inclines. In terms of affordability and power, this is one of the best electric scooters out there.
The Hiboy Max is easy to operate, simple to fold into compact size, and fun to use. It features an intuitive LED dashboard that can be paired with an app. It’s got excellent braking, a comfortable platform, a front shock absorber, and wide tires. It leaves very little to be desired!
