Electric Scooters in Canada [Best Scooters + Best Shops + Tips]

A significant part of my audience is from Canada, and I’ve had quite a few discussions with Canadian scooterists or would-be scooterists on several different scooter-related topics (as you are probably already guessing, always very pleasant, genuine, and polite interactions).

Electric scooters in Canada have massively grown in popularity over the last few years. A big part of the country is not quite suitable for electric scooter rides for several months in the year, but during the warmer months, Canadians can’t get enough of their scooters.

This guide is meant to help scooterists in Canada find out more about the best scooters available there, the best merchants and online stores, and a few other useful tricks for buying an electric scooter in Canada.

For the most part, the best electric scooters available in North America in general, will also be available in Canada as well. However, that’s not always the case.

Also, there are some great scooters that seem to only be available in Canada, and not really available anywhere else, or at least not constantly available.

Let’s take a look at the best electric scooters you can get in Canada.

Best electric scooter in Canada overall – Ninebot Max

two Ninebot Max electric scooters

The Ninebot Max is arguably the best electric scooter in the world right now. It certainly seems like it’s the most loved and desired scooter at the very least. The good news for Canadian scooterists is that the Ninebot Max is widely available in Canada.

The scooter has many qualities and features that make it deserve its title fully, but additionally, some of its features are particularly suited for the cities and environments in Canada. Most notably, the Ninebot Max comes with one of the best water protection ratings and waterproofing in the scooter world. With an IPX5 rating, it is the second or third best waterproofed scooter, and that protection against water will certainly come in handy outside the summer months in Canada.

With extra-large 10-inch pneumatic tires, the Ninebot Max will provide very comfortable rides, pretty much as comfortable as the luxury scooters that cost 3 or even 4 times as much. Plus, the roads in Canada are pretty good, so you can be confident that you will get a buttery-smooth ride with this scooter.

One of the strongest features of the Ninebot Max is its range. With 64 km / 40 mi of range, it is one of the longest-range electric scooters that don’t cost an arm and a leg. It’s also a strong performer in general, with a top speed of 30 kmh / 18 mph, good climb angles and weight capacity, all of that packed into 19 kg / 42 lbs, which is pretty lightweight considering all of the specs.

Typically, the best place to get the Ninebot Max from in Canada is TekTrendy. You will get free and very fast shipping to your doorstep, and excellent customer support all the way. It may also be worth taking a look at the Ninebot Max on Amazon Canada, and even the Ninebot Max on Amazon listings, just to make sure you are getting the best price.

Best electric scooter in Canada under $300 – GoTrax GXL V2 Commuter

One of the best budget electric scooters in the world (if not the best), the GoTrax GXL V2 Commuter, is also available in Canada, at no additional cost, and with free shipping.

The GoTrax GXL V2 Commuter usually costs just $248, or around CAD 298, and you truly get a lot for that price.

For starters, GoTrax is one of the best budget scooter brands in the world, and they truly know their stuff when it comes to making solid scooters for very little money. Most ultra-budget scooters in this price range will come with a number of quality-related issues, ranging from major engineering or design flaws, to faults in the execution or QA issues. That’s almost never the case with any GoTrax scooter, and especially not with the GoTrax GXL V2 Commuter, which is one of their most popular scooters ever.

Since the scooter is massively popular, it has been through a lot of testing, both by GoTrax between different releases and batches, and by countless of owners throughout North America.

The scooter has a top speed of 25 kmh / 15.5 mph, an IP54 rating, and 100 kg / 220 lbs of weight limit. It only weighs 12 kg / 26 lbs, and has very small folded dimensions, making it one of the most portable electric scooters available today. The range of the GoTrax GXL V2 Commuter is probably the only parameter that’s what you would expect from a $250 scooter, and the 36 Volt battery provides a range of 19 km / 12 mi. That’s not too little, and it will be enough for most commuters and casual riders, but it’s still not a lot of range objectively.

Anyway, the GoTrax GXL V2 Commuter is an excellent scooter for its price. You can find the scooter on the official GoTrax store, shipping should be free for Canada. See the Amazon Canada listing to compare prices and delivery terms, but chances are, they won’t beat the deal from GoTrax.

Best electric scooter in Canada under $500 – Levy

The Levy is one of the slickest, coolest, most elegant budget electric scooters available in the world today, and is available in Canada through the official Levy store.

This scooter has slowly but surely been gaining a lot of ground in the scooter world, managing to establish a position as a well-designed, well-engineered, well-executed general-purpose scooter, that is very affordable and yet doesn’t sacrifice quality even one bit.

It is a lightweight, portable commuting scooter, with a range of 16 km / 10 mi, powered by a hub BLDC motor of 350 Watts, integrated into the front wheel. It comes with two brakes (disk brake in the rear and electronic brake in the front), good lighting in both the front and the rear, and most importantly, the ability to customize the scooter before you order it.

One of the most exciting features of the Levy is the swappable battery. You can simply take out the battery and charge it without having to drag the entire scooter into your living room. Also, when the time comes to replace the battery (which will inevitably come with every scooter), the process will be a piece of cake with the Levy.

Also, you can select what type of tires would you like your scooter to come with before you buy. You can choose between inner-tube pneumatic, tubeless pneumatic, and solid rubber tires, depending on your needs and the road conditions where you live.

All in all, the Levy is a modular, balanced, versatile, very affordable electric scooter, that you can get through the Levy store and have shipped to Canada in a matter of days.

Best electric scooter in Canada under $1000 – Xiaomi Mi Pro 2

The Xiaomi Mi Pro 2 almost needs no reintroductions. The successor to the most successful electric scooters of all time, the Xiaomi M365 and the Xiaomi M365 Pro models, draws upon the huge pool of experience and addresses a lot of the issues and faults found in the popular models, which were not that many to begin with.

The result is the next king to the throne, and, of course, it is available in Canada.

The Xiaomi Mi Pro 2 will provide you with a great range of 45 km / 28 mi on a single battery charge, a top speed of 25 kmh / 15.5 mph, strong climbing and carrying capabilities, an IP54 water resistance standard, all of that while weighing just 14 kg / 31 lbs.

While the previous models were plagued by issues with flat tires, the new model comes with improved tire technology, and the 8.5-inch pneumatic anti-explosion tires will not suffer nearly as many flats.

The best place to get the Xiaomi Mi Pro 2 in Canada is FreeMotionShop.

Best waterproof electric scooter in Canada – EMove Cruiser

In Canada, waterproofing will be of critical importance for your electric scooter. Electric scooters and water generally don’t go together, and while the recommendations of avoiding rain are well-meaning, we all know that there will come a time when we simply must ignore them.

The good news here is that the most waterproof electric scooter in the world, the EMove Cruiser, is easily available in Canada. With an IPX6 rating, the EMove Cruiser comes with unrivaled protection against water damage, but on top of that, it also happens to be one of the best electric scooters overall, so it’s a double win for Canadian scooterists.

The EMove Cruiser performs like a scooter twice its price. Its range is just insane – it has been tested and proven to be up to 100 km / 62 mi on a single battery charge!

The scooter performs well in general. The 1600 Watt motor and the high-quality LG battery give it very good acceleration, climb angle, and a large carry capacity (up to 160 kg / 352 lbs). The scooter comes with 10-inch pneumatic tires, which provide excellent traction and make the rides very smooth and comfortable.

Probably the most surprising feature of the EMove Cruiser is its weight. It weighs just 23.5 kg / 52 lbs, which, given its specs, is nothing short of amazing. Scooters that perform similarly can often weight even twice as much.

It is very easy to love the EMove Cruiser, and it’s no surprise at all that a ton of people do. The scooter is available in Canada through Voromotors. Don’t forget to use the coupon code escooternerds to get a 7% discount (almost $100 off).

Best electric scooter for kids in Canada – Razor E300/E200/E100

Razor is the best brand for electric scooters for kids, and children in Canada can rejoice because Razor models are available there as well.

Usually, the best place to buy Razor scooters in Canada will be ElectricBoardingCo, but, as usual, make sure to check the Canadian Amazon listings, as prices of these scooters often change and you can sometimes find a better deal on Amazon.

There are several extremely popular Razor models available, each with a specified age group in mind, so depending on the age of the child, you can get the proper Razor scooter that will fit her or him:

If you’re buying through ElectricBoardingCo, don’t forget to enter the coupon code escooternerds at checkout to get the scooters at a discount.

Best premium electric scooter in Canada – Weped SST

The Weped SST is not a scooter for everyone. In fact, I believe it’s a scooter that less than 0.1% of scooterists will find suitable.

But for those 0.1%…

For starters, the Weped SST costs $7299. Most people would probably choose to buy a used car with that kind of money. But, to be fair, the Weped SST will perform better than a used car, or rather, better than most cars.

This is a crazy scooter. It can reach speeds of up to 120 kmh / 75 mph! The Samsung 21700 50E battery gives it a whopping range of 160 km / 100 mi.

It’s no wonder the scooter costs so much – it is one of the most insane, most performant electric scooters ever made. It’s clearly not a scooter meant for everyone.

But for that tiny subset of zealous scooter lovers with an incurable need for speed and the biggest thrill a scooter can provide, it will be the best scooter available.

The scooter is available in Canada through the EWheels store.

Best electric scooter stores in Canada

The number of online scooter merchants in Canada seems to be growing. With new names popping up frequently, it can be difficult to know which stores are the most trustworthy and provide the best service and experience. Based on my experience in dealing with scooter stores, and the experience and the recommendations of my Canadian readers, the following are the best electric scooter stores in Canada, that provide free shipping and usually don’t have any hidden fees or taxes.

TekTrendy

TekTrendy is probably the fastest-growing electric scooter online merchant that ships to Canada primarily. Naturally, shipping is free and very quick. They don’t offer a large choice of scooters yet, but they are the go-to place for many popular models, and even a scooter model of their very own! Some of their offerings are:

ElectricBoardingCo

ElectricBoardingCo is a versatile online store that offers a large selection of all types of electric rideables. When it comes to electric scooters, they probably have the biggest selection of models available in Canada. They mostly focus on more affordable models, like:

Use the coupon code escooternerds at checkout to get a discount on your order.

UrbanMachina

UrbanMachina is one of the most trusted electric scooter brands in North America. They ship to both Canada and the US, but they originate from Vancouver, Canada, and that’s still where their base is.

UrbanMachina is by far the best place to order some truly high-performance and luxury scooters in Canada. You can find all kinds of scooters at their store, including some high-ticket scooters that are rarely available elsewhere. Some of their most popular and best-performing scooters include:

FreeMotionShop

FreeMotionShop is a Canada-native scooter brand that has been around even since before the scooter revolution began and before scooters were cool. They ship all across North America, but Canada is their primary location. Going back as far as 2016, it is one of the oldest and most well-known electric scooter brands. Besides scooters, they also deal with hoverboards, unicycles, monowheels, and every possible electric vehicle out there.

The most popular scooter choices available at FreeMotionShop are:

Voromotors

Voromotors is based in the US, but, in their words, they “take care of their customers in Canada”, and provide favorable shipping and delivery terms for their customers in Canada. They are the home of some of the most beloved and coveted electric scooters in the world, scooters like:

EScooterNerds works closely with Voromotors, and you can get a special 7% discount by using the coupon code escooternerds at checkout.

FluidFreeRide

FluidFreeRide, or FFR as they’re widely known in the scooter world, is the go-to place for several very notable and popular electric scooter lines. They ship to Canada, and they have a lot of Canadian customers. FFR will be the best place to get your hands on popular scooters from the Mercane, Inokim, and Kaabo series:

GoTrax

GoTrax is one of the most popular budget scooter brands in North America, and while they are probably more focused on the US, they ship to Canada as well, usually for free and for no additional charges. You can find all of their evergreen models on their store:

EWheels

EWheels is a popular merchant that holds some of the coolest, rarest, most powerful electric scooters in the world. Besides scooters, EWheels are a popular merchant for monowheels and other electric rideables as well. They are based in the US, but ship in Canada as well. You can find some truly crazy scooters at EWheels:

Apollo

Apollo scooters are available in both Canada and the US, and the brand’s devotion to Canadian customers is very clear because they have a separate website for them. Ordering through Apollo’s Canadian website will ensure you get the fastest delivery times and either free or very affordable.

Naturally, all the Apollo models are available in Canada:

If you order through Apollo, use the coupon code NE28PN5KFW for $50 worth of accessories, upgrades, or spare parts.

Amazon Canada

Of course, Amazon is always a good option, and while in many instances it will not match the prices or the delivery terms of the specialized merchants, it’s still very smart to check out the listings there as well.

Amazon Canada will have the best shipping times and free delivery in Canada, but I’ve noticed that at times even the regular Amazon stores and listings have good deals for shipping to Canada as well.

Some of the best electric scooters available on Amazon Canada are:

Electric scooter laws in Canada

Electric scooter laws in Canada will largely depend on the province you’re in. The following table is a quick reference for the legal status of scooters, the age requirement, the speed limit, and whether you have to wear a helmet, for each of the largest provinces.

Electric scooter tips for riding in the winter and in the rain

If we know one thing about riding electric scooters in Canada, it’s that you will definitely have to ride through some unfavorable weather at some point. While generally, you should avoid riding in the rain and snow with your electric scooter as much as you can, we all know that at times you will have no other option but to go through with it.

You should prepare your scooter to withstand contact with water and handle slippery surfaces as much as you can. Some of the most useful things you can do include:

  • get a waterproof cover for your scooter
  • deflate your tires a bit
  • replace the standard tires with wider ones if possible
  • don’t charge your scooter immediately after riding in the cold
  • seal the non-functional gaps and the holes in the deck using ductape
  • put o-rings around non-sealed screws and holes with wires or cables
  • seal non-functional holes with silicone or superglue
  • use transparent sticky plastic covers, or adhesive tape, to protect the screen, the controls, and other electronics
  • extend the mudguards
  • use a silicone-based conformal coating to waterproof the connectors and solders (you can do the same to electronics too, but that’s a more advanced method)
  • grease the motor wheel axles
  • always dry your scooter with a cloth after riding through rain or snow (don’t use a blowdryer)

You will find the following guides very useful if you plan on riding your scooter in Canada:
