Mongoose unveils its first full line of electric scooters at Toy Fair

Exclusive: The Mongoose React E4, E2 and E1 electric scooters start as low as $120.

Joseph Kaminski Senior Associate Technology Editor / Reviews
During my almost twenty years at CNET, I handled benchmark testing/methodologies for both Mac and PC systems and, sometime after, integrated testing for micro-mobility (e-bikes, electric scooters and EUCs), which is a passion of mine. Transitioning from a BMX background to this field was seamless. Despite testing numerous products, each new one brings the same excitement as my first.

Mongoose React E2 is among three scooters that are part of the brand's first full line of electric scooters.

Pacific Cycle

Mongoose is riding from bikes into electric scooter territory. The line's parent company Pacific Cycle on Friday launched the new Mongoose React series, three scooters that make up its first full line in the category.

The Mongoose React E4, E2 and E1 scooters range from $230 to as low as $120, with all three set to go on sale this April. All three will also have an IPX4 rating for water resistance.

The middle of the range E2 scooter for $140 goes younger, meant for ages 8 and up and for riders standing at 120 pounds or less. It moves at a slower speed and its battery can ride 8.5 miles on a charge.

The cheapest scooter, the E1, comes in at $120 and is also meant for children ages 8 and up while weighing 120 pounds or lighter. The scooter itself can go 7.5 miles on a charge, and the company claims it will have a lightweight frame that is easier to transport -- possibly making it ideal for taking to a park.

The announcement of the three scooters comes as the toy industry converges in New York for Toy Fair 2020, which takes place at the Javits Center starting Saturday. The three scooters will be among the many toys getting their reveal on the show floor, including Disney's Star Wars toy reveals, featuring the affectionately named Baby Yoda, and a kitchen set that works with Amazon Alexa devices.
