Editorial Review

The Ecoreco M5 is a rugged and reliable ride, with a low price tag compared to the competition. Many owners have praised its role in eliminating their superfluous travel habits. Some have been able to cut down on cab fare and others have stopped using public transportation in their commute. There's no mistaking the M5 for an automobile, but as a vehicle, it fits neatly between the labor of walking and the hassle of driving.

Ecoreco produces three series of scooter: the S, the M, and the M Air. The M5 is Ecoreco's latest addition to the M line. The M5 has a top speed of 20 miles per hour and a range of 20 miles per charge, so it can run nonstop at top speed for one hour. Its greatest blessing may also be its only curse. As durable as the M5 is, it weighs in at a whopping 36 pounds. That's a hard sell for someone lugging it up ten flights of stairs to their apartment after a long day at work. Then again, the money saved on subway tokens could pay for some ice packs.

"Scooter" is a funny word. It first appeared around 1825 and it referred to a person, not a device on wheels. A scooter was one who scooted, of course. Scoot as a verb came into the English lexicon from Old Norse hundreds of years earlier, where its original meaning was "to shoot." After a few hundred years, a scooter became a form of transportation. Foot-powered kick scooters have been around for over 100 years. Motor scooters, the tiny sibling of the motorcycle, appeared around World War I.

Scooters come in all shapes and sizes these days. Some are mobility aids, like the Pride Elite Traveller Plus 4 or the Tzora Elite. Some are personal Popemobiles, like the Shoprider Flagship. Now we can add downtown commute system to the list of definitions.

I guess I love this scooter so much, because I'm exactly the target audience... I researched the few available folding electric scooters. This is the most bang for the buck...

Overall, even with shortcomings, and given the competition, this is by far the best thing like it available today.

The scooter I bought for my 35 year old son was a hit with all of the family... It is well built and very portable with the use of the travel bag with wheels.

It's not perfect. At 35 pounds, it's still too heavy to comfortably carry around when it's collapsed...

I’s a pretty tough little scooter. First of all, it gets up to speeds of 20 miles per hour...

In the right environment, though, the ecoreco m5 can be a truly personal vehicle that will liberate you from traffic and, if not completely cut out public transportation...
