Whew, what a year 2022 was! There have been many ups and downs over the last 12 months, and that also goes for the scooter industry. Unfortunately, some of our best-selling scooters of 2021 were discontinued, which definitely put a wrench into things. However, this left room for other brands to rank on our list, most notably Fortress. In this article, we will go through our top 10 best-selling scooters of 2022, sorted into categories to make it easier for you. First, let’s go over portable scooters.
Portable scooters are typically small, lightweight, and travel-friendly to some extent. They are ideal for indoor use, and can be transported in the back of a car. Here are our best-selling portable scooters of 2022.
1. EasyFold Scooter
First up is the EasyFold Scooter. This unique mobility scooter can automatically fold with the press of a button.

Front and rear LED lights, straightforward controls, and anti-tip wheels make the S425 an enjoyable scooter to drive.

6. Pride Raptor
Next up on our list of the best selling scooters of 2022 is the Pride Raptor. The Pride Raptor is the fastest mobility scooter that we carry, with a top speed of 22km/h!

Full-sized scooters are a good option if you are regularly going to be driving far distances. They are ideal for outdoor use, mainly on sidewalks, grass, and light bumps. This is mainly due to their size, as most do not have a tight enough turning radius for indoor use. Full-sized scooters are often equipt with luxury features, and will make you feel like a king!
7. Fortress S700
The Fortress S700 shares similarities to the S425 we talked about earlier, but it is larger with slightly higher performance specs. It offers two carbon effect mirrors, a large captain seat, and advanced LED lighting. It also comes with an extra large front basket. The S700 has full suspension, generous legroom, and large air tires, all of which provide a smooth and comfortable drive. It has a top speed of 15km/h, a driving range of 55km, and a weight capacity of 350 pounds. There is no question why the Fortress S-Series is dominating our best selling scooters list for 2022!
8. Shoprider LandCruiser
Next up on our list of the best selling scooters is the Shoprider LandCruiser. Shoprider makes some fantastic full-sized scooters, and this is one of our favourites. Experience the outdoors in style with this stunning scooter, equipt with a large captain seat, delta tiller, and 12.5-inch air tires. Key stats include a top speed of 13.5km/h, a driving range of 48km, and a 500-pound weight capacity. The impressive weight capacity allows almost anyone to experience its top performance.
The last category of scooters is outdoor scooters. These are large mobility scooters, equipt with full suspensions, large tires, a high ground clearance, and other features that make them ideal for outdoor use. Rocks, grass, gravel, and even tree branches will not phase these outdoor scooters! But, there are few indoor settings where these scooters can be used.
9. Pride Baja Wrangler
