(Updated) Price list: 8 best electric scooters in Nepal as of July 2022

Scooters are the most common means of commuting in urban Nepal. They are light and provide an adequate amount of power to the rider to cover a certain distance in certain terrain. Riding a scooter is easy and convenient as one does not have to worry about the weight or about the gears.

Electric scooters are no longer boring and outdatedly designed. They, in contrast, are in fact one of the best-designed scooters on the market right now.

With the price of fuel skyrocketing right now, switching to electric scooters seems more practical. There are more than 15 EV brands and over 60 electric scooters model available in Nepal at the moment.
