Motability has launched a new series which will be reviewing the mobility scooters available through the scheme and is designed to give end-users a better idea of the equipment available via distributors.
The group has just published the second review in its series which is led by Ian Cook, who says the reviews are being carried out independently.
The latest review focuses on small class 2 scooters, which are increasingly popular thanks to their ability to be taken on public transport.
Among the class 2 scooters Motability has chosen is Electric Mobility’s Rascal Veo Sport, Van Os’ Excel Tiempo and Pride’s Go-Go Elite Traveller 4.
Cook described the Veo Sport as “very practical with distinctive looks and all-around suspension, offering a lot of comfort and bags of bounce”.
The Excel Tiempo stood out for a comfortable ride and easy-to-use tiller. Its outstanding feature was the new LED lights at the front.
Meanwhile, the Elite Traveller 4 was praised for being “small, light highly manoeuvrable and surprisingly zippy”.
Motability’s first set of reviews looked at class 3 scooters and singled out Freerider’s Mayfair 8 Deluxe, Electric Mobility’s Rascal Pioneer, Pride’s Colt Sport and Invacare’s Orion.
