    Hi @Zimba,
    This isn't an area I know much about I'm afraid but I've tagged your post as 'unanswered' so hopefully someone who does have more to offer will see it and be able to make some suggestions.

    Are you looking for something foldable?

    You mean a "pavement scooter" ?
    if so - you have to pay more for less - lightweight alloy costs more than heavier steel
    Avoid 3 wheel scooters - they tend to be unstable compared to 4 wheelers and may fall over when turning in tight corners..
    The wheels tend to be smaller diameter as well - so you feel every bump
    You need one that comes apart rather than folding
    It is a 4 wheeled alloy, lightweight (it comes apart (heaviest piece 10kg), relatively large wheeled, comfortable (I've test driven one), lithium battery  (not heavy Lead acid), relative bargain (£1500 if you look)
    total weight (4 pieces) 28kg
    They have a smallish battery (12Ah) but have an optional 25Ah alternative - be aware that the larger battery is NOT airline compliant (if you ever fly anywhere)

    Hi @Wibbles

     Thank you for your reply,  sorry I should add it’s not for me but a family member.

    Yes a pavement scooter, they have a Rehab illusion but it’s not very stable and they don’t feel safe using it, just wondered if there was something light but with more stability and easy for me to lift in the car, they also have a more robust one that can be broken down but that’s to heavy for me to lift also.
