Electric scooters are advancements of the scooters that were first known as a child's push vehicle. They are efficient vehicles used for getting around quickly with less effort.

Modern scooter designs and enhancements are based on whether the rider is to sit or stand. Motor scooters with small gasoline engines have been a favorite in European countries for decades. Advancements in battery technology led to the development of small electric engines. In recent years scooters were reintroduced to the American public,Guest Posting initially as toys for older children. Sales quickly skyrocketed and soon electric scooters could be seen almost everywhere. The electric scooters were a favorite among adults for use in urban areas.

Competition among scooter manufacturers and continuing sales has led to unique design features, such as miniature low-powered motorcycles. Motorized scooters, whether the rider is to sit or to stand, are considered low-power motor vehicles by many municipalities and are subject to state and local regulations. Some scooters meet Department of Transportation regulations for operation on streets and roadways while others are prohibited from being on the streets. Any time a motorized vehicle is introduced into traffic areas, appropriate cautionary measures must be taken and proper safety gear must be worn.

Scooters can be easily found in the retail market, however not all retailers will carry all styles. Major discount or department stores may only carry a couple of models that they believe will be the most popular among their shoppers. A scooter store could specialize in a variety of recreational scooters, while another store will specialize in the mobility scooters. Retailers also offer scooter accessories to enhance the experience as well as replacement parts and service. Any style of scooter can be purchased online for retail pricing. The current market demand for scooters makes it hard to find them at wholesale prices for a single purchase, but there are many opportunities for an individual to become a scooter dealer.
