As gas prices continue to move upward, electric vehicles are becoming a more attractive alternative to the gas-guzzlers we grew up with. And that includes battery-powered scooters, which are quickly getting more affordable and dependable.
A new e-scooter called the Komeet X9 is poised to begin arriving in November in the US, Europe, and elsewhere. The scooter is in full production in China and Komeet developers are accepting pre-orders at prices that start at less than $460 US. Deliveries are expected to begin in November and orders include free delivery.
The scooter has several high-end features, including an LED dashboard, disc brakes, three gear modes, and an automatic locking mechanism. The Komeet X9 Pro model is powered by a 48-volt battery that gives the scooter a range of up to 62 miles or 100 km. It also has wider tires and a wide 7.2-inch deck.
The battery is nestled under the deck plate behind a sturdy door that offers easy access to the battery compartment. Owners don’t have to park the scooter near an electrical outlet to recharge it. They just carry the battery into their home or office to plug it in or swap in a second battery.
Among some of its features including a maximum speed of 25mph as well as a power output of up to 1100W depending on which version of the e-scooter people choose to order. The climbing angle of the Komeet X9 is also geared at 25-30°, allowing users more scope to go up steeper hills, particularly useful in countryside settings and more mountainous regions.
