One of the most common concerns for people conducting research on portable mobility scooters, is whether they can lift the scooter up to load into the car boot, and if it will fit. When you think about it, it really is not surprising because the portable light weight scooter aspect is the reason to purchase a portable mobility scooter in the first place. This is where there is a massive point of difference with Luggie, compared to other folding mobility scooters in the market.
With the Luggie scooter, you can make use of the leverage in the half fold position, meaning you’re effectively lifting half the weight of the mobility scooter.
How To Easily Load The Luggie Scooter Into A Car Boot
- Have the chassis extended (not folded), with the tiller folded down and locked into the chassis, with the seat lowered down.
- Pick up the front of the Luggie scooter and position it against the lip of the car boot with the end of the Luggie on the ground.
- Then, making sure the top of Luggie is wedged over the lip of the car boot, and won’t roll down, lift the end of the Luggie from the ground leveraging the weight and roll it in.
The Luggie is the only portable mobility scooter available where you can do that. Other portables on the market fold in one action, so you’re left having to pick up the dead weight of the scooter. Believe me, this is a very valuable feature unique to Luggie when loading in the car boot on a regular basis.
The other concern; “will it fit in the car boot”? is not an issue due to the compactness of The Luggie when fully folded. Even small hatch backs don’t present a problem and have sufficient room to transport your Luggie scooter.
Below is a picture of a Luggie in the half fold position for reference. In addition check out our videos throughout our website showing demonstrations.

We’ve had a hard case purpose designed for the Ezy2Go chair and they are now available for purchase. They are a real boon for travel, as now your light weight folded electric wheelchair can be wheeled along in the travel case with the extra protection the hard case provides. This makes the folding wheelchairs much safer and easier to transport especially if travelling by air. At the moment the travel case is only suitable for the Lite and Premium models, but a case is being developed for the basic wheelchair and will be available soon.
Another new accessory is the drink and phone holder, that is easily mounted on the armrest of the chair.
Each of the lightweight folding electric wheelchairs in the range, are receiving very good feedback and often proving to be life changing for the user.

The Ezy2GO folding electric wheelchairs are available in three models to suit nearly everyone.
- Lite chair
- Basic chair
- Premium chair
They all have the same essential functionality, fold the same way, and easy to operate. The main difference is the size, and weight capacity. Lite electric folding wheelchair is the most compact and is ideal for the smaller, lighter person. It has the advantage of being able to take the two back wheels with motors off, which only takes a few seconds to do. Obviously this means the lifting weight is greatly reduced to around 12 kg, making it easy to load in the car, etc.
Basic electric folding wheelchair is suitable for the taller person, it has a higher seating position. The weight capacity is 115kg. With a bigger seat and more leg room than the Lite model.
Premium electric folding wheelchair is our heavy duty model, it has a weight capacity of 160 kg. It has a bigger seat than the basic model, more powerful motors, and a vertically extending backrest.
All of these folding power chairs, fold in seconds, have suspension, and light weight lithium batteries. They are all highly portable and great for travel. Range is around 16 km with one battery, but easy to extend the range with an extra battery if need be. These power chairs are super easy to operate and manoeuvre via the joy stick which can be mounted on the right or left armrest. They have a really tight turning circle of the length of the wheelchair.
The Ezy2GO chairs have been programmed to Australian standards.
Please check the respective specification pages, for full specs and model comparisons, and feel free to call or email so we can answer all your questions.
The Luggie portable mobility scooter is available in four models, they all fold the same way and have the same essential functionality. Standard luggie was the first one in the Luggie series and comes with a lightweight lithium battery, it has a weight capacity of 114kg. The next one released in the series was Luggie Elite, and the main difference is the Elite model has a weight capacity of 145kg, and has extra features compared to the standard model. These extra features include, a slightly bigger seat, more powerful motor, longer range lithium battery, LED battery indicator, extendable handlebars, and armrests. Next in the Luggie series to be released was Eco Luggie. This model is a budget version, with the main difference being Luggie Eco comes with heavier lead acid batteries rather than lightweight lithium batteries. The last in the Luggie series to hit the market is Luggie Super. This model is designed for the heavier person and provides extra comfort and leg room by adding width to the scooter. Luggie Super has a bigger seat, wider fixed handlebars, more powerful motor. It has a weight capacity of 163 kg and comes with armrests and Free accessories.
It’s a good idea to compare the respective specifications of the various Luggie models, while asking yourself a few key questions. First make sure the weight capacity is right for you. Ask yourself do I need armrests, bearing in mind you can always purchase them as an optional extra anytime. With most people the lifting weight of the scooter is very important so it’s usually best to chose a model with a lightweight lithium battery.
If you’re still not sure which Luggie model to chose, why not email us or call us. We’d be glad to help.
