The biggest shopping day of the year is fast approaching, and we expect quite a few Black Friday deals as retailers jump-start the prime shopping season. 

If you're in the market for an electric scooter, many will be discounted for the holiday season. Here's what to look for when shopping for Black Friday scooter deals — as well as some early sales we've spotted, in case you don't want to wait.

Electric scooter deals you can get now

Segway Ninebot E22

Segway Ninebot E22: was $549.99, now $424.99 @ Amazon
The Ninebot E22 electric scooter has a 300E brushless motor that can reach speeds of up to 12.4 MPH and travel up to 13.7 miles. The scooter has 9-inch dual-density rubber tires and head- and taillights, so you can be better seen when it's darker outside.

Unagi Model One

Unagi Model One 2-pack: was $1,979 now $1,499 @ Best Buy
What's better than a deal on one scooter? How about two? The Model One — our favorite electric scooter overall — is light yet powerful enough to get you up all but the steepest hills. It has a great range, looks awesome, and is available in four colors, too. Check out our Unagi Model One review for more details.

Gotrax GKS LUMIOS

Gotrax GKS LUMIOS: was $159.99 now $134.99 @ Amazon
The GoTrax GKS Lumios is essentially a flashier version of the GoTrax GKS Lumios we reviewed. The Lumios has a front wheel with built in LEDs that light up when the scooter is moving. It's powered by a 150W motor that reaches a max speed of 7.5mph. Intended for ages 6-12 and up to 154 pounds, the Lumios' handlebars can be raised as your child grows.

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max 2-pack: was $1,899.99 now $1,599.98 @ Best Buy
This Segway scooter is one of our favorites because of its excellent range — up to 40 miles. It's also super-comfortable to ride, and has a top speed of around 18 miles per hour. This deal shaves $300 off the cost of two — not cheap, but certainly more palatable.

Razor Pocket Mod

Razor Pocket Mod: was $399.99 now $297.99 @ Best Buy
If you're looking for a Vespa-like scooter for your kid, look no further than the Razor Pocket Mod. This sit-down scooter has a max speed of 15 mph, a range of up to 30 minutes, and 12-inch pneumatic tires for a comfortable ride. It's available in purple or pink.

Hover-1 Alpha scooter

Hover-1 Alpha scooter: was $449.99, now $349.99 @ Amazon
The Hover-1 Alpha rides on 10-inch pneumatic tires, which should make for a comfortable trip. It has an LED headlight and display, and a 450W brushless rear motor can propel you at speeds of up to 18 miles per hour, and its battery is rated for up to 12 miles. In all, not a bad price for a midrange electric scooter.

GoTrax GXL V2

GoTrax GXL V2: was $299 now $247 @ Amazon
Deal ended: The GoTrax GXL V2 isn't going to win any races — it has a single 250W motor and a top speed of 15.5 miles per hour — but it's a nice low-cost electric scooter for those who are looking for an affordable model to get them around. And, its air-filled tires will help ensure a smoother ride.

Electric scooter deals — what to expect

Over the past year, the electric scooter market has heated up, so we expect to see plenty of Black Friday scooter deals this holiday season. Two of the biggest and most reputable brands are Segway and Razor; the former is known for adult scooters, while the latter is better known for kid-focused models, though both make electric scooters for all segments. If you see deals on their scooters, it's worth checking them out. We anticipate there will be more sales as Black Friday approaches, so stay tuned.
