Folding mobility scooters – along with other portable mobility scooter models – are designed to be easily transported and can fit in the trunk of almost any vehicle. Folding scooters are ideal for people who lead active lifestyles, love to travel, or make frequent trips outside the home. These compact and convenient scooters are available in either 3- or 4-wheel models to suit your needs.
Foldable mobility scooters are among the most lightweight and maneuverable scooters available on the market today. However, due in part to their smaller size, folding scooters tend to have a lower maximum weight capacity than larger models and occasionally struggle to traverse difficult terrain.
If folding scooters aren’t your thing, Scootaround also carries a number of portable travel scooters that fully disassemble for easy transport or storage.

How you fold down a mobility scooter depends on the model. Some folding mobility scooters, such as the Drive ZooMe Auto-Flex, can fold up electronically with the push of a button. Other models need to be folded manually.
In almost all cases, folding scooter models can be folded up quickly and easily in three steps or less.
