Finding the fastest electric scooter in the UK 2019

One of the best things about owning a website like ESW is that you very quickly learn what it is people want to know more about – and by far the thing that a majority want to know is what the fastest electric scooter available is.

Before we get into the nuts and bolts of this, a few disclaimers – the fastest electric scooters don’t necessarily mean the best or most appropriate electric scooters available. These are beasts of machines, perfect for certain conditions and uses, but not ideal for casual scooting around. 

Secondly, try before you buy. It’s easy to be seduced by the speed you see on the website, but in reality, 18mph on a scooter feels a hell of a lot faster than 18mph in a car – so then when you start to reach the heady speeds of 30mph-40mph on an electric scooter – it feels seriously fast!!! 

Lastly, these are scooters that we could find for sale through UK stockists – we are aware of faster and more powerful electric scooters that you can buy via import, but these won’t be subject to the stringent safety regulations that UK stock gets certified with, so we have not included them based on this.

Ok, enough of the sensible chat, see below the fastest scooters we could find available in the UK.

The latest from the Inokim stable of electric scooters, the OXO is the natural progression from the OX, and looks pretty much the same. The difference is in the power – this absolute animal of a scooter reaches 65kmh ( approx 39/40mph ) on the flat, and feels comfortable with it.

First things first, you’re not seeing double. The Inokim OX is very similar to the OXO in looks – and in fact it’s very similar in just about every aspect. For a long time the OX was the go-to scooter for the speed heads who wanted some power in their ride.
