How fast does the Merits Pioneer 3 go?
At full speed, you can reach 5 mph.
You will find some other brands offer scooters that go faster than this, however high quality brands put a high emphasis on safety too.
In order for a mobility scooter to go faster than around 10 mph, heavy investment must be made to ensure it stays just as safe. For this reason, the more reputable and safe a brand, the more they cap the top speed of their mobility scooters.

Daily Operation & Transportation
Can I ride the Merits Pioneer 3 mobility scooter in the rain, snow, wind, and hot sun?
- Rain: It’s OK and safe if you get caught in the rain once in a while, or go through an occasional puddle, but you should try to avoid a trip if you know it’s going to rain.
- Snow and ice: We cannot take responsibility for using the scooter in these kinds of weather conditions.
- Cold weather: Fine, though it does negatively impact the battery's health and lifetime.
- Wind: Generally not an issue unless very strong winds could tip the scooter over. If you have a mobility scooter with a canopy, remember, very strong winds can act as a sail to tip over your scooter.
- Hot sun: No issue as far as the scooter is concerned. Remember to take along ample hydration!
