What is the difference between an electric scooter and a balance car

- Apr 04, 2019-

First, the carrying capacity

The bearing capacity of the self-balancing car and the electric scooter is not much different, but because the pedal of the electric scooter is wider and can carry two people when needed, the electric scooter has advantages in bearing capacity. Second, endurance


There is only one driving wheel in the balance car, plus the difference between the top speed and the driving mode. In terms of endurance, it is usually better than the electric scooter with the same battery capacity. The longer the electric scooter or the balance car will increase the weight accordingly. In terms of battery life, the two are relatively consistent.

Third, driving difficulty

The electric scooter is driven in a similar way to an electric bicycle, and it is also superior to an electric bicycle in terms of stability. It is easier to get started. The balance car itself has no controls and relies solely on the computer's self-balancing function and the car's ability to sense the driver's driving intentions. Although the self-balancing vehicle has a relatively new driving style and is easier to learn, it takes a period of practice to get a very precise control. In comparison, electric scooters are easier to drive.

Fourth, security comparison

Both the balance car and the electric scooter are new type of travel tools. From the control of the car, the balance car needs to be controlled by the center of gravity, and the front and back are tilted back to accelerate and decelerate the ride stop. The user who just started to use still needs a period of time. To adapt, but in some places where the road is pitted, the control is still somewhat difficult, and the electric scooter brake is manually operated, and there is relative brake control, relatively speaking, this part of the electric scooter slightly occupied Advantage.


Five, the degree of carrying

The balance car is relatively small compared to the electric scooter. If the car has no electricity, it can be carried up. Because it is not big, if you carry a medium-sized backpack with you,

Can be put into the bag and liberated his hands on his back. Although the electric scooter can be folded in design, the folded volume still occupies a certain space.

And in the absence of electricity, the electric scooter is relatively cheaper to implement.

So in this respect, the balance car is easier to carry.

Through many aspects of comparison, in actual use, the gap between the two types of products in terms of battery life and load is not obvious, but in terms of safety and ease of use, the electric scooter is still slightly superior, but in specific use. In addition, you have to decide according to your own needs.
