Two powerful independent 1600 watt motors are the driving force behind this awesome off road electric scooter. One motor powers the front wheel while the other powers the rear. This means that even on the roughest of terrains or when only wheel has traction this off road electric scooter is still being powered forward.
The total of 3600 watt motor power is more than enough to propel the NANROBOT RS7 a mind-blowing 55mph on smooth terrain. This sort of motor power also comes in handy when the going gets tough and can even push the NANROBOT RS7 up an incline of 65 degrees with ease.
A high powered 60 volt, 31.2AH lithium battery is capable of powering the NANROBOT RS7 a maximum distance of 55 miles between charges. The specially designed battery can be fully charged in as little as 6 hours.

Front and rear mudguards are a very welcome feature especially if you find yourself riding in the wet or on muddy terrain.
The front and rear disc braking system on the NANROBOT RS7 does an exceptional job of stopping this off road electric scooter. Even in wet conditions or off road you cannot help but feel confident that you can come to a complete stop in a heartbeat. The long travel front and rear suspension not only makes this off road electric scooter handle well on smooth terrain at high speeds, it manages to soak up even the most harsh of off road terrains.
Even though the NANROBOT RS7 is an exceptionally well built and strongly designed electric scooter it is still extremely portable. This is thanks to the fact it is easily folded down and only weighs 88.2lbs.
It is also a really nice touch to see that the NANROBOT RS7 features a USB charging port so you can charge your phone or power a sat-nav as you ride. With clever features like this it is easy to see why the NANROBOT RS7 has a well deserved place on any list of best off road electric scooter 2019.

A high-tech 60 volt, 31.2AH lithium battery provides the NANROBOT RS4 with enough juice for a respectable 45 miles between charges while this off road electric scooter can be fully charged in around 6 hours.

4 – NANROBOT D4+
The NANROBOT D4+ is an awesome off road electric scooter that features all-wheel-drive operation at a very reasonable price. That alone makes this product a strong contender for the title of best off road electric scooter.
Each of the wheels has its own powerful 1000 watt electric motor powering it along which is idea for off road riding even when the terrain gets slippy. The total combined 2000 watts of power can push the to a top speed of 40mph on smooth terrain while providing ample power for off road riding.
A high capacity 52 volt, 23AH lithium battery is enough to power the NANROBOT D4+ along for 45 miles between charges. What we really love about the battery in the NANROBOT D4+ is that it can be fully charged in as little as 3 hours. This makes it one of the fastest charging off road electric scooters you can buy.
You will alway feel fully in control and safe when riding the NANROBOT D4+ thanks to the front and rear disc brakes that can stop the scooter at eye popping speeds. The front and rear ten inch tyres also hep with that feeling of safety making the scooter feel like it is stuck to the road. They also provide tremendous grip when riding off road.
An essential component of any of the best off road electric scooters is the presence of a front and rear suspension system and the NANROBOT D4+ does not disappoint here. While the suspension is not quite as good as some NANROBOT electric scooters it does the job fine and we really should not moan to much considering the great price of this electric scooter.
The NANROBOT D4+ is easily folded down to a compact size of only 11.8 inches high and 43.3 inches long which makes it easy to transport and to store. It is also nice to see that the NANROBOT D4+ features a handy USB charging port for charing your cell phone on the go.
|All-Wheel-Drive||Not As Powerful As Other NANROBOT’s|
|Very Fast Charging|
5 – NanRobot D5+
The NanRobot D5+ is very similar to the D4+ although it does feature some nice improvements one of which is a better and more powerful lithium battery. As you would expect, the NanRobot D5+ is a very worthwhile contender for the title of best off road electric scooter.
As with all of the very best off road electric scooters the NanRobot D5+ features an all-wheel-drive system with two individual 1000 watt motors powering a wheel each. When combined and on flat, smooth terrain the NanRobot D5+ can reach an impressive top speed of 40mph. The combined 2000 watts of power from the two electric motors do a fine job of getting you over the roughest of terrains and up even the steepest of inclines.
Despite being more powerful that the battery seen in the D4+, the 52 volt, 26AH lithium battery can still be fully charged in as little as 3 hours and provide a range of around 50 miles between charges. Certainly enough to keep you cruising along and exploring for the entire day.
The front and rear suspension may not have quite as much travel as some of the more expensive off road scooters but it still manages to impress, soaking up bumps and lumps with relative ease. The 10 inch tires greatly help with the smoothness of the ride while giving excellent grip both on and off road.
The presence of very effective front and rear disc brakes gives you excellent stopping power and help make you feel in complete control even in the wet or the mud.
The NanRobot D5+ easily and quickly folds down to a compact size making it easy to store and transport. A feature that is ideal should you want to take it into a coffee shop or store under your desk at work.
It is also nice to see the inclusion of a front LED light for anyone riding at night or in darker conditions off road. Another nice feature is the option of buying the NanRobot D5+ with or without a seat. While the option of a seat is a nice idea it is worth noting that using the seat off road is not the most comfortable of options.

|Front and Rear Disc Brakes|
|Very Fast Charging|
6 – NANROBOT RS2
The NANROBOT RS2 is another offering of the best off road electric scooter from NANROBOT that comes with the option of buying with or without a seat. The idea of having a seat on an electric scooter is a great idea but it is really only practical should you be riding on smoother terrain.
Once again NANROBOT have designed their RS2 with an All-Wheel-Drive system with a two powerful 1200 watt electric motors, one powering each wheel. This, again, means that even in slippy off road conditions you can be nearly guaranteed to have traction. The combined 2400 watts of power from the two electric motors can power the scooter over the roughest of terrains while been able to reach a top speed of 40mph on smooth flat roads. The 2400 watts of power can also power the scooter up inclines of up to 65 degrees.
A 60 volt, 23.4AH lithium battery can be charged in as little as 6 hours while providing a more than adequate 45 miles from a single charge.
Front and rear disc brakes are the reason the NANROBOT RS2 can stop quickly, smoothly and safely in all conditions while the front and rear suspension helps make the scooter handle like it is on rails on smooth surfaces while making it feel smooth when being ridden off road. The presence of 11 inch tires greatly help with the scooters traction as well as helping it roll with ease over rougher terrains.
The scooter is easy to fold down to a nice compact size which makes it easy to store and just as easy to carry. It is also nice to see that, like so many of the other best off road electric scooters, that this scooter also includes a USB charging port for your cell phone.
|Dual Suspension||Charging Not As Quick As Others|
|Large 11 Inch Tires|
|USB Charging Port|
The Rugged Pocket Bike SAY is among the best off road electric scooters on offer from a lesser known manufacturer. Because this is an offering from a lesser known brand could well be the reason why it is on sale at such a great price. In fact the price is so great it is most certainly one of the best off road electric scooters under $1000.
This off road scooter is powered by a single but powerful 1000 watt electric motor that is capable of getting the scooter to a top speed of 20mph. Sure, may sound like nothing special compared to other off road scooters mentioned here but it is still fast for two wheels. It is worth noting that because of the limited top speed and uniquely designed body this electric scooter is idea for younger riders or riders with very little experience.
Power comes from a 36 volt, 12AH battery that can be charged in as little a 4 hours for a quick charge and 6 hours for a full charge. The manufacturer claims that 250 quick charges can be performed before a full charge is needed. The 36 volt battery gives the scooter a range 10 miles between charges. Certainly not the best range we have seen but for the price we really cannot complain to much.
Despite the excellent price of the Rugged Pocket Bike SAY it still manages to include front and rear suspension system which really is a must have feature when riding off road. Combined with the 10 inch tyres there is not much terrain that will get in the way of this electric scooter. There is also the inclusion of disc brakes which is amazing considering the price.
Transporting and storage is also as easy as you can imagine thanks to the fact the Rugged Pocket Bike SAY can be quickly and easily folded down.
If you are on a budget then the Rugged Pocket Bike SAY is probably you best bet for the best off road electric scooter.
|Amazing Price||Range Not The Best|
|Front and Rear Suspension||Lower Top Speed|
|Ideal For Young and Learner Riders|
8 – QIEWA Qmini
The QIEWA Qmini is a very strong contender for the title of best off road electric scooter simply because of its practical lightweight design without sacrificing build quality. It easily folds down to a compact size making it easy to transport in the back of a car. In fact you could quite easily fit two, three, even five QIEWA Qmini in the trunk of your car.
This particular scooter is ideal for riders who weigh less than 80kg. Riders over that weight may wish to consider the slightly more powerful QIEWA alternative in the form of the Q1-Hummer.
The 500 watt electric motor can power this electric scooter and its rider up to a very respectable top speed of 33mph on smooth and flat terrain. This also proves to be more than capable of powering it along off road and up inclines of up to 45 degrees.
This off road electric scooter is powered by a 48 volt, 16AH battery which gives the QIEWA Qmini a range of up to 37.3 miles between charges. As you would expect, smoothness and type of terrain that you are travelling on does affect this range.
The chassis sits a comfortable 12cm off the ground which makes it feel smooth on the flat and very capable of making light work when being rode over rocky terrain. The 8 inch tyres are also a great help when tackling off road terrains.
Like you would expect from any product in the running for the title of best off road electric scooter 2019 the QIEWA Qmini comes with a front and rear suspension system that helps soak up those lumps and bumps you would expect from off road riding.
It would have been nice to see see disc brakes on the QIEWA Qmini but with that said the front and rear drum brakes are more than adequate and are still capable of stopping the scooter quickly and safely in an emergency.
What we really love about the QIEWA Qmini is that QIEWA have included an anti-theft feature in the form of a remotely activated alarm system. Once the alarm is armed the slightest movement of the scooter will activate the ridiculously loud siren.
If you are wanting to buy the best off road electric scooter of 2019 and want an off road electric scooter that is portable and easy to carry then the QIEWA Qmini should be given serious consideration.
|Anti Theft Alarm||Not Ideal For Riders Over 80kg|
|Front and Rear Suspension||Drum Brakes|
|Tyres Have Great Grip||No All-Wheel-Drive|
9 – QIEWA Q1Hummer
The QIEWA Q1Hummer is the big brother of the the QIEWA Qmini and the better choice between the two should you weigh over 80kg. Both the QIEWA Q1Hummer and the QIEWA Omini look very similar, if not identical, in their design. The one difference is that the QIEWA Q1Hummer has the more powerful 800 watt electric motor which is capable of, on smooth terrain, of a top speed of 34mph.
The QIEWA Q1Hummer features a 48 volt, 26AH lithium battery seen in its little brother and is capable of providing the scooter with a similar 62 miles in-between charges.
A front and rear high wearing suspension makes easy work of off road riding and, as you would expect, an essential component of any of the best off road electric scooters. What we particularly love about the suspension system of the QIEWA Q1Hummer is its amazing rebound system and very hard wearing design. The addition of 10 inch pneumatic tires also greatly help with the overall ride of this electric scooter, especially when it is rode off road.
Stopping the scooter is as easy as riding it thanks to the front and rear drum brake system. We have to admit that we would have loved to have a disc brake system on this electric scooter but this would add weight and would mean the scooter would cost more to buy.
The QIEWA Q1Hummer also features several handy extras like a front LED light, a rear brake light, and a USB charging port for the charging of your cell phone. It is also nice to see that QIEWA have included a remotely activated anti-theft alarm system with this scooter. It is also nice to see an off road scooter that can be folded down in as little as two seconds for easy transportation.
Anyone wanting to buy the best off road electric scooter without breaking the bank could do a lot worse than considering the QIEWA Q1Hummer.
