The Fastest Electric Scooter Under $1300?

Overview

Solar is a UK company with a US headquarters in Los Angeles. They’ve made high-quality, low-cost, high-speed electric scooters for several years now and released one of our favorite electric dirt bikes, the carbon-frame E-Clipse, earlier this year.

Solar has gone with an old electric scooter frame style for the P1, one seen in classics of the scooter world like the EMOVE Cruiser. This style works to the scooter’s advantage in several respects, which we’ll explore below, but it also comes with some drawbacks.

Who Is This Scooter For?

The P1 3.0 is such a versatile electric scooter that nearly anyone can ride, from beginners to pros, and appreciate its speed, acceleration, power, and ride quality.

It’s a scooter you’ll grow into if you’re just starting out: a dual-motor electric scooter with 1200W of combined power is not exactly entry level, though a wide range of speed and motor settings let you tame its most aggressive instincts.

But this is also most definitely a scooter built for experienced riders on a budget who dig classic styling, serious performance, and customization options galore.
