The M3 E-Scooter follows the design of a traditional push scooter but integrates a battery pack in the deck and an electric motor in the rear wheel.

The lithium-ferrophosphate battery is large enough to give the M3 E-Scooter a range of 20 miles. It takes 4.5 hours to charge it from zero to 100 percent capacity.

The aluminum frame makes for a stable riding platform, but airless rubber tires and minimal suspension lead to a harsh ride.

The rear wheel includes a 250-watt electric motor, but it lacks the power to tackle hills.

At 34 pounds, the M3 E-Scooter is too heavy for frequent trips up and down stairs or to carry across town, but it is fine for a walk across a train platform or subway station.
