Glion Balto Electric Scooter Review

True Score





Expert Rankings

The Glion Balto is a superb scooter, thanks to its built-in headlight, premium design, water-resistant body, and 20 miles range. But, watch out for its long charging times using the included charger and the lack of an official IP rating.


The Glion Balto Electric Scooter is a flagship-grade moped/e scooter released in September 2020. Unlike the older Glion Dolly Foldable electric scooter, it comes with a dual function mode in order to easily convert it from a moped to a full-fledged e scooter.

The brand claims that this feature sets it apart from other electric scooters available in the market, as it can easily adjust itself in any condition and on pretty much any terrain. On top of that, Glion promises a buttery smooth ride, thanks to its unique tires and dual suspension system. It primarily targets buyers with a high budget looking for a no-compromise electric scooter for their daily commutes.

What Is Not on the Box

What the brand doesn’t always tell you…

our Verdict

The Glion Balto Electric Scooter is a great choice for those looking for a reliable ride for their daily commutes. It has a max range of 20 miles, a bright headlight, and a 750-watt electric motor. Plus, it folds up like a suitcase for easy carrying. Just be aware that it takes a while to charge with the included charger.
