Electric scooters are an increasingly popular means of transportation. There are many users looking for this type of vehicle for their daily commutes. When it comes to moving around the city, having an accessible scooter with front suspension can be an essential point for many users. And the Eleglide Coozy is a good option in this segment.
During the last weeks I have tested this electric scooter, officially sold by the brand for €549.99. In this article I share the main features, and how it behaves in daily use.

Unpacking and assembly of Eleglide Coozy
Unboxing the Eleglide Coozy is easy, as you would expect from an electric scooter. It arrives in a relatively compact box, and with the handlebars removed. Using the provided tool and screws, this is the first step to take after removing the protective plastics.
With the handlebar mounted, you can start using it without any problem. But of course, the charger also comes in the box, and the brand advises a full charge before first use. In the instruction manual you will also find safety information that may be interesting if it is your first scooter.
How is the construction, design and weight of the Eleglide Coozy
The Eleglide Coozy has a decent build quality and is a good fit for its price point. We have a strong frame and the plastics on the fenders are tough. However, there are some moments of the construction in which it is noticeable that there were cuts.
On top of the cover we have a rubberized material that seems to be of lower quality and that peels off a bit on one side. Nothing problematic, but the sealing of the charging port could also be better. All other materials seem robust.
An important detail is that the cover that surrounds the battery is made of aluminum alloy. So, you can count on a shockproof, stab-proof and waterproof battery area for better protection.
The Eleglide Coozy’s design is reminiscent of some of the industry’s competitors. It has a very discreet appearance, which is positive in a city context. The cover is quite wide, with 19 centimeters.
This means that we have enough space to put both feet together, if that is what the user wants. According to the brand, this user must have a maximum weight of 120 kg for adequate stability.
The gross weight of the scooter is 22.7 kg and its net weight is 18.7 kg. This means that we are dealing with a scooter with a relatively decent weight to fold it up and take it with you on the subway, for example. It is also not problematic to carry it up the stairs of the building. But it already requires a bit of effort with a lot of stairs.
As you can see in the image below, it can be folded up for storage or storage at home or in the car. We have a safety tab on the structure, and a clip to hold it to the back. I’ve never noticed any weaknesses in these areas in the crease that seem safe.
It is also worth noting that we have a good quality side rest. This provides good stability when you want to park the scooter, even if it’s a bit windy (as it was on some of the test days).
What it’s like to drive the Eleglide Coozy
The Eleglide Coozy has a 350W motor, which provides enough power for daily commutes, with up to 15% lift. During my rides, I felt that it did quite well, even on steeper inclines.
Its 10-inch wheels are of good quality and stable. We have an E-ABS braking system and disc brakes at the rear. Coozy’s braking is satisfying and transmits security, but I would like it to be more efficient and not have to brake so hard.
As already mentioned, the platform has a width of 19 centimeters, which I consider sufficient for safe driving. As for the suspension, it is here to ensure that we have some stability when we ride on more irregular surfaces.
We have several modes. The most basic is the pedestrian mode, where the scooter travels at 6 km/h and is used when you carry it in your hand. Then we have the eco mode, where it travels at a maximum speed of 10 km/h. Standard mode has a top speed of 15 km/h and Sport mode reaches a maximum of 25 km/h.
This is the maximum speed allowed by law for Eleglide Coozy. Although in some markets it can be unlocked from the Greendrive app, this possibility does not appear if you are going to use it in Europe since it is a legal limitation.
It should be noted that we have a throttle, which allows you to use the cruise control function. After holding for about 10 seconds at a certain speed, it activates. As soon as you touch the brake, this constant speed is deactivated.
In terms of lighting, we have a satisfactory front light and a good quality rear light, which allows you to be seen from a considerable distance. A big advantage that we have on this scooter is the flashing lighting on the handles. This can be used as “turn signals” and can be activated with the push of a button. At the rear we also have reflectors on the sides for greater visibility.
Additionally we have the bell that you can use to signal your presence. Through the Green Drive app you can customize the modes, light up, find the scooter or activate Sport mode, connecting it via Bluetooth to your Android or iOS smartphone.
How is the autonomy of Eleglide Coozy
With a 36 V 12.5 Ah battery, the brand promises a range of between 50 and 55 km. But as always, these are numbers that are only possible under ideal conditions. In a usual context, varying between standard and Sport mode, it had something more within the 30 km of autonomy.
As always, autonomy depends on several factors. From the weather conditions, the soil or the weight of the user. I achieved these approximately 30 km of autonomy in a route with some climbs and with my 62 kg.
As for charging, it takes about 7 hours. As with most scooters, the battery can’t be removed, so you’ll need to carry Coozy near an electrical outlet to charge it.
How is the screen of Eleglide Coozy?
The Eleglide Coozy’s display isn’t phenomenally bright, but it turns out to be one of the best and most uncomplicated I’ve tested with good visibility day or night. We have a button that is used to activate it, and to turn the scooter on or off. By the way, when you leave your scooter on public roads, use a lock. Because here we don’t have an alarm, security codes or keys. It’s call and follow.
The screen shows information about the distance the scooter has traveled, the battery level or if you are using the lights or turn signals. It also tells you the mode in which you are walking, if Bluetooth is activated and if there is a defect or high temperature warning.
Conclusion on Eleglide Coozy
The Eleglide Coozy is an electric scooter with several interesting features for its price range. It has decent range and a 350W motor that handles uphill climbs of up to 15% quite well.
The front suspension helps to ensure greater stability for this scooter on rougher surfaces. And the fact that we have a tire with a width of 19 centimeters also ends up helping to have a comfortable trip. The turn signals on the grips are also a great touch for those planning to ride at night, and the taillight is bright and flashes to indicate you’re braking.
However, the rubber top of the deck came off a bit on one side and didn’t feel like the best quality. The brakes require initial maintenance, as the braking could be more effective from the factory. The app is a companion experience, but it doesn’t do much more than check the battery percentage level. If you can live with its flaws, the suspension may be worth your purchase.
At €599 on the official website, but normally €549 on sale, this is a scooter you should consider in this price range. With unique code “4GNEWSCOOZYyou get an additional €60 off, making it €489.
