We often have customers come into the shop who have been to look at mobility scooters and then end up purchasing an electric trike after looking at the what an electric trike can offer when compared to a mobility scooter.
A mobility scooter is the 4 wheeled scooter that has a seat and a throttle, they do not have pedals. In Queensland a mobility scooter must be registered and can only travel on the road if the footpath or nature strip is unsafe to use. Mobility scooters are limited to 10 kph and can go anywhere a pedestrian can go which means that they can be used in shopping centres.
An electric tricycle can go anywhere a bicycle can go and is limited to 25kph with power assistance. You can go faster than 25 kph, for example, when you are going down hill or if you are able to pedal hard enough. Electric trikes do not need to be registered but they cannot be ridden into shopping centres.
With our electric tricycles you get a large basket on the rear able to carry lots of shopping and a trike that is a lot more fun to ride than a mobility scooter.
