Fastest Mobility Scooters in Velobike

Novice mobility scooters users ask themselves the question about the fastest vehicles they can own. In this article we will try to explain the technical specifications and compare some of the most popular electric vehicles, because there is not much information about it on the web. At Velobike we have vast knowledge of our products as well as the laws under our mobility scooters can operate.

 

Speed limits and law regarding mobility scooters.

First, let’s talk about the legal regulations relating to the speed limits. There are three classes of mobility scooters which we can navigate in different places and allow us to go at different speeds.

– Class 1 are manual wheelchairs – self / attendant propelled and not electrically powered

– Class 2 are mobility scooters with able to achieve maximum speed 4mph. They may only travel on pavements and designated areas such as: footpaths, pavements, and when crossing roads. please note that this class must not be driven on a carriageway.

– Class 3 are mobility scooters with ability to achieve maximum speed of 8mph. These scooters are only intended for use on the road. Some of the models on the market have much higher performance, however, you should bear in mind that the law allows vehicles to be driven up to a certain speed.

What to look for when choosing a fast mobility scooter?

First of all, we need to think about the driving style and the surface for which the vehicle we are buying is intended to be used. In addition, you should check whether the vehicle you have chosen meets all the legal requirements for travelling in the chosen location.

Additional advantages of certain fastest mobility scooters.

 

Battery life

Long battery life. Important part of the mobility scooter is the battery. As it is well known, their lifetime (number of charges) depends on their quality. Veleco offers scooters equipped with Lead Acid Gel batteries that allow 600 full charges and the battery charge time from 0 to 100 is 8 hours. For Faster and Draco, it is possible to optionally replace the battery with an abteria lithium-ion.

 

Range

An important advantage of many mobility scooters is their range. This depends on the battery strength and the weight of the scooter. Thanks to the careful Veleco’s design of vehicles such as CRISTAL and FASTER, a range of up to 37mil can be achieved!

 

Turning radius mobility scooter

The turning radius is a feature that makes it easier to navigate in many hard-to-reach places. For this reason, here are three mobility scooter models that cope with it best.

Model of mobility scooter

ZT16 35,43
DRACO 64,96
ZT15 74,80

 

Tilt angle

There are often obstacles on the road, such as hills, but veleco constructions are able to overcome them very well. According to Velobike’s research, the most frequent question from customers is at what angle of inclination relative to the plane they will be able to move. In the case of mobility scooters manufactured by Veleco, the tilt angle under which you can move is as high as 17 degrees.

Electromagnetic brake

An interesting feature is the electromagnetic brake, which is automatically activated when the scooter is switched off. Their purpose of it is to prevent the vehicle from potentially rolling down a hill. Unfortunately not many mobility scooters have this feature. However with Velobike, it is possible to find vehicles such as the ZT15 and DRACO which have the above mentioned improvements.

Most desired Veleco mobility scooters 2020

Ever wondered what are the most desired Veleco mobility scooters in the UK and European Union? No secrets between our company and all the awesome customers, so here’s the short summary of our 2020. If you didn’t yet get a chance to grab one of these vehicles, it might be high time to do so.

The year 2020 was certainly eventful for many people, both individuals and businesses. Even companies such as ours faced struggles and difficulties along the way. This however, was no excuse to give up, as we are the ones who provide people with their freedom of movement. Certainly during 2020 this was one of the most desired commodities, as many who relied on public transport didn’t want to use that any more. Mobility scooters, which didn’t require a driving licence, became especially high in demand due to this.  

2020 Ranking of most wanted

We are proud to say that some models in our store certainly exceeded our expectations. With many changes to our online website and focus on providing the best customer service possible, we have noted traffic of an average 36 thousand people every month. This resulted in many sales, in fact so many, we could barely keep up in the high of summer!

Looking at the statistics, we can say that the first place of most wanted Veleco mobility scooters goes to ZT63, which sold over 4000 vehicles in 2020. We were somewhat surprised about it, but if one looks at the awesome Vespa style retro look, it sure makes sense that this is our customer’s favourite choice.

Second place goes to model FASTER, with over 3500 pieces sold. Guess the reliability of four wheels isn’t to be underestimated. The sense of security this model offers to seniors, especially calms all fears.

The third place is a dark horse in the Most Wanted race. CRISTAL certainly isn’t our newest model and we definitely never expected that over 2000 vehicles will reach the houses of our customers. It is a pleasant surprise that this vehicle is still in very high demand by our clientele.

Thinking about those numbers, we are very much pleased, because each of those means that another person out there enjoys the air outdoors. Living in the four walls can be suffocating and make people unhappy. It is heartwarming to know that we have contributed to people’s happiness out there.

Most desired Veleco mobility scooters – is colour important?

We did show statistics of the whole models, but what about colour? It certainly affected our customer’s decision-making.

Between the three ZT63 models, a big dominance of red one could be seen, as it certainly outdistanced other colours 3 to 1.

In the case of FASTER, this was a very tight race between all red and blue, but ultimately, the blue one took the lead.

CRISTAL silver sold strongest, which certainly was a surprise. The precious colour and highly refined must really be an eye-catcher to many customers.

What have we learned from it? That the colour of 2020 for mobility scooters was certainly the red one.

Do you think we should add red CRISTAL to our store? You can subscribe to our Facebook or Twitter and comment on it!
