Electric scooters like Swagtron’s Swagger 5 Boost rocketed in popularity during the pandemic, but they are no passing fad. The best electric scooters will only become more and more part of the mainstream as a fairly affordable commuting option that’s greener than cars and less physically demanding than bicycles. 

The Swagger 5 Boost replaces Swagtron’s entry-level commuter scooter, the Elite, while upgrading the motor and tires. While its extremely basic appearance won’t win any points for style, it hits a good balance between price and features. I found it perfectly capable of transporting me around and between neighborhoods in a fair amount of comfort and convenience.
