The SuperSoco CU is currently available at both Netto and MediaMarkt at a bargain price.At first glance, there are many extras, such as the removable lithium-ion battery and the choice of three colors.But is there a catch?EFAHRER.com took a closer look at the deal.In the video you can see the big brother - the SuperSoco CPX being tested.We may receive a commission for links marked with , "To the seller" or "To the shop".The electric scooters are divided into the categories of either really expensive or cheap models.Especially discounters like Netto regularly sell e-scooters, some of which still have the outdated lead-acid battery technology and have the big disadvantage that the batteries cannot be removed for charging.But you can also stumble across a very interesting offer, such as the SuperSoco CU.At Netto, the e-scooter is currently available for 2,089 euros.While you should often question special offers because the discount is nothing special, there really is a bargain here: SuperSoco is a trademark of Vmoto Limited, which sells the vehicle for almost 3,000 euros on its website.Instead, in addition to Netto, the electronics giant MediaMarkt is also offering the SuperSoco CU at a bargain price.Delivery time: Delivery in 1 - 2 working daysIn view of the high-quality components, the scooter can definitely be seen on the road.The electric speedster has a wheel hub motor that, according to the manufacturer, was developed together with Bosch.This allows acceleration in 3 driving levels (1 = Eco, 2 = Normal, 3 = Sport) up to a maximum of 45 km/h.You need a category B (car) or A driving license (the AM moped driving license is sufficient).The highlights are the Keyless-Go radio key with alarm system, the removable 7 kg battery and a USB charging socket.Conveniently, the scooter already comes with a top case mount, to which the common variants can be easily attached.The charging cable, with which the scooter can be charged in four hours, is of course supplied with the battery.The SuperSoco is also equipped with an extensive display and LED headlights.Overall, the e-scooter is available in three different colors: white, gray and red.Buy the SuperSoco CU for 2,089 euros from NettoA range of 40 to 50 kilometers seems to be a realistic value, although you have to keep in mind that both the rider's weight and the conditions have an influence on this.One person is allowed on the scooter.With a top speed of 45 km/h and a peak power of 1,000 watts, the scooter is not a racing machine, but you should be able to swim along in city traffic.Despite the price, the equipment is not minimalistic.In addition to the portable batteries, there is a top case holder including and all kinds of fuses.All in all, with the SuperSoco CU you get a nice all-round package with alarm system, immobilizer, keyless go system and a steering wheel lock.So the city runabout won't be stolen that quickly.Only rarely can an e-scooter be found on the relevant websites that costs less than 2,500 euros new.At Netto and MediaMarkt, the SuperSoco CU is well below that, but it still has a lot to offer.Only the range leaves a lot to be desired.For short distances in the city, however, it is completely sufficient if you accept having to charge the batteries frequently.The battery can be removed and, at 7 kg, is comparatively lightweight and easy to charge at a standard socket.The SuperSoco CU e-scooter is for those who are looking for an economical alternative for city transport.The SuperSoco CU for 2,090 euros at MediaMarktThese e-scooters are primarily suitable for holders of a moped or car driving license who mainly want to cover short distances in the city.Because you are not allowed to drive these scooters on motor roads or even motorways and also hold up traffic on busy country roads.In addition to the argument that you are emission-free with an e-scooter, the motor also speaks for an e-scooter.It is particularly low-maintenance and wears out more slowly.The same applies to brakes, as you use them less than on conventional scooters.Because as soon as you take your foot off the gas, the engine brake usually acts much more strongly than with combustion scooters.In addition, an e-scooter is easier to care for.No need to change oil or replace spark plugs.Only the battery should not be deeply discharged.In addition to the most common 45 km/h scooters, which correspond to conventional 50 cc gas scooters with around 4 hp, there are e-scooters that can reach around 80 km/h.For these scooters you need at least a class A1 driver's license, which you can now obtain with driver training of at least nine teaching units of 90 minutes each and without an extra test.You also need this A1 license, for example, if you want to drive combustion scooters up to 125 cc.These faster scooters usually cost a good bit more.In addition, there are now a few (few) e-scooters that can reach speeds of over 100 km/h.They usually correspond to a higher class than the 125 cc gas scooter, so you need at least the A2 driver's license, i.e. the motorcycle driver's license.These scooters are the most expensive e-scooters and often have the best range.Battery: The ideal scooter has a lithium-ion battery that you can remove for charging (usually these batteries weigh around 10 kilos).Because this is the only way to make the e-scooter practical.Unless you always have the option of pushing the scooter straight into an outlet for charging.Range: It all depends on your personal driving style.If you only drive very short distances and can charge the battery anywhere, a cheap scooter with a range of 25 to 30 kilometers is sufficient.You will become more independent with scooters with a range of around 50 kilometers.Motor: If you want a really powerful e-scooter, you should look for a motor with ideally 2,000 watts.Our purchase recommendations are a bit weaker, but offer more comfort in handling and more equipment.We also recommend a Bosch brand motor.Storage space: Many electric scooters have one disadvantage – they offer no storage space.Because the space under the seat is often occupied by the battery(s).So if your dream e-scooter has no space for the helmet, we advise you to get a suitable top case, in which a scooter helmet fits.If you want to stow two helmets, the top case should hold around 48 liters.Amazon offers a top case for 50 euros that has received very good reviews.See the Tresko top case for 50 euros on AmazonService: What use is a scooter to you if no workshop can repair it?So opt for an e-scooter whose repairs are covered by a dealer or authorized workshop in your area.Alternatively, as with the Nova Motors scooters, there is an on-site service that comes to your home and repairs the scooter on the spot or picks it up.So before you buy, find out how well the manufacturer's service is developed in your area.Nice to have: The more expensive the scooter, the more equipment there is.For example, with Niu scooters you get the right app that includes tracking or offers a digital key so that you can easily lend your scooter.These are features that can be very practical in everyday life, but are reflected in the sales price.But keep in mind: Such branded scooters are much easier to sell than no-name scooters.The good news: very little!All you need is insurance, which will save you around 20 euros a year.There are no taxes, and you don't have to take your scooter to the TÜV.In addition, there are only the electricity costs for charging the battery.Roughly speaking, you can calculate around 1 euro for 100 kilometers.Some cities, such as Munich, promoted the purchase of electric scooters.In some cases, there were even scrapping premiums for old combustion scooters and a bonus if you charge your new e-scooter with green electricity.In the best case, Munich residents were able to reduce the price of the 999-euro scooter at Aldi to an incredible 90 euros (EFAHRER reported).Unfortunately, a large number of grants are no longer valid.A fairly up-to-date list of funding opportunities for e-scooters can be found here.Under certain conditions, you can qualify your e-scooter for the so-called GHG quota and win over 300 euros a year.In this article we describe exactly how this works.If you have a car or motorcycle driver's license, you can drive a moped (up to 45 km/h).Anyone who does not have either of the two driver's licenses needs a class AM driver's license.You can find more information in our guide to getting a
