The Go-Go Elite Traveller plus 3-wheel mobility scooter is made by Pride Mobility and is an upgrade to the standard Go-Go Elite Traveller.(3.7 / 5)
Some of the main things that stand out about this scooter are its improved battery life (up to 12 miles on a single charge), heavier weight capacity of up to 300 pounds and the increased size of the rear wheels.
It is another good portable and lightweight scooter but higher quality than the Ultra X.
Mileage per Charge
You can get a travelling range of around 12 miles on a single charge depending on how weighed down the scooter and what sort of terrain you travel on. Travelling uphill and on bumpier surfaces will reduce the miles per charge as it takes more power to move the scooter along that type of road. 12 miles is an improvement on the standard ‘GoGo Traveller’ and the ‘Plus’ model uses a standard 18A rechargeable battery that takes about 8 hours to fully recharge.
Heavy Weight Capacity
The Elite Traveller Plus can accommodate up to 300lbs and there is a HD (Heavy Duty) version that has an increased weight capacity of 325lbs. These are among the highest in the industry and beats out any scooter under $1000. If you struggle with movement due to your size these scooters will help you get out and about.
Large Rear Wheels
Enlarged rear wheels give extra stability while riding along and improve the performance when outdoors as they can handle bumps better and get better traction on wet surfaces. The new improved rear wheels are a large 9 inches in diameter but only add 2 inches to the width of the scooter as a whole.
No Tool Disassembly
It can be quickly and easily disassembled using one hand as it has a similar latch design to the other Go-Go scooters such as the Ultra X. You do not need any tools such as screwdrivers or allen keys to get it disassembled which is important if you are transporting it for a day trip out and don’t need to worry about having tools available. Portability is an important feature to increase the mobility of the operator as being able to fit it into the boot of most cars means you can have better support away from home.
This model can be assembled in as little as 2 minutes meaning you can be ready to go very quickly.
Interchangeable Color Panels
Includes 3 sets of easily changeable colored panels in 3 colors: Red, Blue and Silver
Top speed of 4.5 mph is very efficient for getting around and can be easily changed from the front handlebars. Although not the fastest it is above average walking speed, allowing you to get places quickly.

Customers were impressed by how hard it was to tip over, pushing it was difficult to tip it due to the spread base and even attempts to lean out and pick up off shelves did not cause it to lift. They felt very safe and supported.
The large wheels and good stability make this scooter great for travelling along roads and streets between shops. The wheels are rubber and flat free so you don’t have to worry about using them on rough surfaces.
The small amount of time this scooter takes to set up also impressed many customers and that someone with limited mobility can store it in the car boot means you can use this scooter on day trips out and prolonged shopping trips to more far afield places.
Tight Folding Tiller
The largest complaint found about this model of scooter is the care that needs to be taken in folding down the tiller otherwise it is very easy to scratch if done poorly. Just taking care of your scooter will ensure this is not a problem.
To summarise the Go-Go Elite Traveller Plus 3-wheel scooter is to focus on its long battery life and impressive mileage on a single charge (12 miles depending on terrain) and its ease of packing up and putting together.
