Never before has getting around been so much fun— the world has welcomed many new ways to travel. Not only is electrified transportation more fun, but it also makes for an easier commute, and is better for the environment, too. Around the globe, and especially in big cities, electric scooters have been popping up left and right.
Either as part of a shared network, or simply used by people who want to avoid rush-hour traffic and hectic parking, electric scooters have emerged as a way for people to get to where they need to go. The electric scooter industry has experienced nearly unprecedented growth. The market as a whole is expected to reach sales of more than 40 billion USD by 2030. It’s clear that this way of getting around shows no signs of stopping.
With this change in how people are choosing to get to their destination, more and more people are interested in getting on board an electric scooter themselves. Not only are these scooters being used by teens and young people, but more and more adults have been investing in electric scooters, too.
Based on different needs and preferences, some people prefer electric scooters with a seat. We know that it’s difficult to navigate this quickly growing market, so we’ll help you out with 10 of the best electric scooters with a seat for adults—all available now in 2020.

This electric scooter has got it all—awesome acceleration, maximum speed, and outstanding off-road capabilities. When it comes to seat-equipped electric scooters, this is the fastest in its class.
Let’s take a look at where the speed comes from. The 2020 Lunar Rocket is equipped with an 1800-watt brushless electric motor allowing it to reach speeds of up to 40 mph (64 kph). It’s also got a 48V 20Ah lithium battery and can get 30 miles (48 km) between charges. All this power means that this electric scooter has enough torque to get even a 200 lbs. (100 kg) rider easily up a hill.
Not only that, but it only weighs 75 lbs. (34 kg), nearly 25 lbs. (11 kg) lighter than most other comparable models. It comes equipped with large 14-inch knobby tires, high quality front and rear brakes, rear dual shocks, and a folding frame that is not only easy to put down but also provides a comfortable and smooth ride. The big comfortable seat is both removable and adjustable, and perfect for any adult rider.
When you go with the 2020 Lunar Rocket, you’ll get a lot of choice. Choose between the Econo or Turbo mode when riding to save battery. When you order you can also choose from three different colors and will receive the free option to include an external charging adapter, meaning that you can remove the battery and charge it independent of the scooter itself. Many people call this the Tesla of scooters— so go ahead and try one for yourself!

We couldn’t finish this list without including at least one scooter from Razor. Razor has been one of the biggest names in the industry for years now, and they’ve transitioned nicely away from their traditional kick push, human powered scooters.

It comes equipped with a high-torque, chain driven, and variable speed 500-watt motor that uses a twist grip throttle. The rear disc brakes are hand-operated, and the seat is padded for comfort.
What really makes this a great scooter with a seat? It’s a perfect choice for commuters, and even includes a detachable luggage rack and rear fender. The bamboo deck looks great and the powder-coated frame means you’ll be riding around in style.
Current users love how much fun it is to ride on this and report that it works great on flat smooth surfaces. It’s definitely one of the more affordable options out there, meaning that it may struggle—especially when it comes to things like steep hills.

How is all of this possible? The scooter is powered by two 250-watt motors, both in the front and rear wheels. It includes a 36V 5.2Ah lithium battery and can travel for ranges of up to 12.5 miles (20 km).
What do we like most about this scooter? How cool it looks! It’s equipped with bright headlights and also decorative night lights that allow you to cruise around in the dark (and look super-cool doing so). Even better, it features a Bluetooth music function!

Mototec knows how to combine fun and functionality—and the FatBoy is one of their newest releases to join the world of electric scooters. As the name suggests, the FatBoy is… well, fat. It comes equipped with phat tires that are 6 inches wide and 15 inches tall—more than three times as wide as normal electric scooter tires!
But it’s not just tires that make this electric scooter stand out, it also performs really well. It’s got a 500-watt rear hub motor that allows riders to reach speeds of around 20 mph (32 kph). Whether you’re using the scooter to get to as a part of your daily commute, or you’re taking it on a fun-filled adventure, you’ll enjoy the journey there. The FatBoy’s 48V battery system allows you to go 20 miles (km) between charges.
Whether you want to sit down or stand, the choice is yours. The extra wide cruiser handlebars will keep you feeling comfortable on your ride and the thick tires will absorb any uncomfortable bumps. Continuing with the phat style, the Fatboy also comes equipped with oversized headlights. It has a capacity to carry riders up to 250 lbs. (113 kg), making it one of the best electric scooters with a seat for larger adults.
The only drawback of the scooter? As you might assume, it’s a little heavier itself. Weighing in at 90 lbs. (40 kgs), it might not be the easiest to carry around with you.

Simply put, this electric scooter is packed with all the features you could want. It combines simplicity, style, and quality materials to ensure a smooth and safe ride. Unlike some of the other scooters on this list, it includes a reliable chain drive system—and also comes equipped with a functional kickstand to make parking a breeze.

The 12-inch front and rear tires are perfect for off-road use. We really like that you can start this electric scooter using an ignition key and that the seat height is both removable and adjustable. People who have purchased the scooter report being impressed with the scooter and its capabilities to navigate obstacles like sticks, potholes, and hills. The manufacturers haven’t listed the scooter’s carrying capacity, so it may not be suitable for larger adult riders.
6. NanRobot D6+

You’ve probably noticed from the picture that this electric scooter doesn’t have a seat. That’s right, it doesn’t come equipped with a seat. However, NanRobot has seats that can be ordered separately on their website. It’s easy to order a seat to match any of their models, and they even have a video on their website that shows you how to install it.
The D6+Comes equipped with two brushless 1000-watt motors, one in each wheel, contributing to top speeds of 39 mph (64 kph). The wheels are supported by front and rear disc brakes plus electric brakes. This means safer breaking for riders, even at top speeds.
Riders can choose between dual mode and single mode, opting to use either one or both of the motors. This allows for strong power and excellent climbing, or smooth riding, power saving, and a longer range. The battery used in the D6+ is a large capacity lithium battery, meaning that the range of this scooter can be up to 40 miles (65 km).
The C-type spring suspension keeps you feeling comfortable on your ride and the wide tires are explosion-proof, meaning you won’t have to deal with a flat. We really love the high-quality alloy frame that includes a bright light system and a LED display that shows speed, battery level, and gear position.
One of the big downfalls of this electric scooter is its price. It is definitely one of the best electric scooters on the market—and it has a heftier price tag to show. Not only that, but to order the seat will cost you an additional $150.

Unlike many other electric scooters, the 36V 1200Ah battery is lead acid instead of a lithium ion. These are slightly heavier, however, have a longer life and a longer run time (up to 18 miles/ 28km between charges). The battery pack powers a 1000-watt motor, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 27 mph (43 kph).
We love that the seat is comfortable and removable and that there are LED headlights and a key switch ignition. The scooter also comes with a free charger and a free tool kit. And the Super Turbo 1000-Elite comes in three different colors!
