Good to Know
Front-wheel drive mobility scooters can carry up to 150 lbs. and are primarily designed for indoor and level pavement use. They run on a single 12-volt battery and can travel 5-10 miles before recharging is necessary.

Rear-wheel drive mobility scooters are able carry a maximum of 250 to 350 lbs., while heavy-duty models can carry up to 500 lbs. Rear-wheel drive scooters run on two 12-volt batteries capable of traveling 15-20 miles before requiring recharging.

Keep in mind that motorized mobility scooters are less safe to use as a seat in a moving vehicle, because the base is more difficult to tie down.
