Walmart slashes prices on electric bikes and Razor escooters for Labor Day

Electric bikes and scooters play a quickly-increasing variety of roles. Whether used for commuting, beach cruising, trail riding, or just tooling around the neighborhood, ebikes and escooters take many shapes and forms at prices that range from a few hundred dollars to nearly $10,000. Walmart slashed prices on two Hyper E-Ride ebikes and three Razor electric scooters for its Labor Day sale.

Good deals on ebikes during this holiday sales event indicate a growing interest in electric-powered bicycles for sport and utility. Whether you are looking for an ebike or escooter for yourself or a family member, these five deals can help you save up to $401.

Hyper E-Ride Electric Bike 700C Wheels — $401 off

The Hyper E-Ride Electric Bike with 700C wheels rides up to 20 miles per hour with a 36-volt 7.8 Ah battery that drives a 250-watt hub driven electric motor. This Class 1 ebike with six speeds has a Shimano grip shifter and rear derailleur with power for pedal assistance only. You can’t drive this bike by throttle only, like a motorcycle or moped. Battery life is rated for up to one hour or about 20 miles, so don’t count on taking long trips. Charging time is approximately four hours. The Hyper E-Ride is best for light cruising around town or in your neighborhood where the rear-mounted rack is convenient for carrying packages.

Normally priced at $999, the Hyper E-Ride Electric Bike 700C Wheels is discounted to $598 for this sale. If you want an assisted power bicycle for casual rides, take this opportunity to take advantage of this discounted price.

Hyper E-ride Electric Bike, 26-inch Wheels — $400 off

The Hyper E-ride Electric Bike on 26-inch wheels has the same mechanics, both manual and electric, as the 700c-wheeled version above. Most design elements for this Hyper E-Ride model are unique, however, including the high middle bar, slightly larger tires, more aggressive handlebar position, and more neatly tucked brake and shift cables. This model does not have fenders or a rear rack which makes it less utilitarian than the other Hyper E-Ride, but that doesn’t mean it’s right for heavy off-road use. The bicycle-style V-brakes front and rear will need careful checking and adjusting, especially if you travel close to the 20 mph top speed.

Usually $998, the Hyper E-ride Electric Bike, 26″ Wheels is just $998 during the Labor Day sale. If you’re looking for a light-duty, ebike for casual rides, this model has an appealing low price.

Razor E200 Electric Scooter — $31 off

The Razor E200 Electric Scooter is intended for riders thirteen years and older and supports up to 154 pounds including the passenger and anything carried or worn. The E200’s rechargeable sealed lead-acid battery powers a 200-watt electric motor up to 12 mph with a single-speed chain drive. Razor rates battery life up to 40 minutes per charge. Additional features include a twist-grip throttle, hand-operated rear brake, air-filled 8-inch tires to soften the ride, and a retractable kickstand.

Ordinarily $230, the Razor E200 Electric Scooter is just $198 during this sale. If you want an escooter for sidewalk cruising, this is an excellent opportunity at a compelling price.

Razor E300 24-Volt Electric-Powered Scooter — $50 off

Slightly larger then the Razor E200 above, the Razor E300 24-Volt Electric-Powered Scooter pairs the same batteries with a 250-watt chain-driven motor and has a 15 mph top speed. The tires are 9-inches to carry more weight as this model is rated for up to 220 pounds. Battery life is rated at 40 minutes maximum, but it’s the same battery used for the E200 so that time sounds optimistic for a heavier scooter that can go a bit faster.

Regularly priced $320, the E300 24-Volt Electric-Powered Scooter is just $270 during Walmart’s Labor Day sale. If you’re shopping for an escooter that teens and adults can ride for fun, the E300 is a good deal, especially at this discounted price.

Razor 36-Volt EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter — $170 off

The batteries on the Razor 36-Volt EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter store 7Ah of power to drive the 500-watt electric motor. Top speed is 18 mph, load capacity is up to 220 pounds, and the battery is rated for up to 40 minutes of continuous use. There’s a removable luggage rack and you can replace the standard bicycle seat with another style of your choosing. The initial battery charge takes 12 hours. Recharging a fully-depleted battery may take as long as the initial charge, so if you plan to use the EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter for commuting, keep charging time in mind. This escooter is best for casual neighborhood riding.

Instead of the usual $599 price, Walmart cut the Razor 36-Volt EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter to just $429 during this sale. If you want a comfortable escooter to pick up the mail and ride around a village or neighborhood, the Razor EcoSmart is an appealing choice.

Mercedes-Benz G580 vs GMC Hummer EV: rugged EVs face off
2025 Mercedes-Benz G580 from three quarter view.

There's finally an electric G-Wagon. Mercedes-Benz unveiled the new vehicle, officially called the Mercedes-Benz G580 with EQ Technology, after months of rumors and camouflaged sightings. But it's not the only rugged electric vehicle out there. In fact, there are quite a few EVs that could be considered rugged -- like the Rivian R1S, the Rivian R2, and, of course, the Hummer EV.

But how do the Mercedes-Benz G580 and GMC Hummer EV compare? Is one a better rugged electric vehicle than the other? Here's a look at the two vehicles, head to head.
If you love the look of recent-generation G-Wagons, you'll love the look of the new G580. To be sure, it isn't exactly the same as other recent models, but it's certainly close, with a squared-off design and sharp corners. It keeps the metallic ladder frame panels and the flat roofline, and it's available in a variety of colors.

The Kia EV3 could be the cheap electric SUV we’ve been waiting for
White Kia EV3

The Kia EV9 was already one of the cheapest ways to get an electric SUV, but now the company is taking things to the next level. After teasing the Kia EV3 last year, the car is now official.

The EV3 is built to be a slightly smaller, cheaper version of the EV9 -- following the path of the Rivian R2, which arrived after the Rivian R1S. It's certainly not as technologically advanced as the EV9, but it still looks unmistakably like a modern Kia, and is clearly a sibling of the larger SUV. On the outside, the vehicle has the same split taillights and very similar Tiger Face front. But it is quite a bit smaller. The vehicle will be available in nine finishes -- however only "Aventurine Green" and "Terracotta" are being announced right now.

Kia EV3: release date, performance, range, and more
White Kia EV3

Kia is on a roll. Hot on the heels of the success of the Kia EV6 and EV9, the company is already announcing what could be its cheapest electric vehicle yet -- the Kia EV3.

The Kia EV line seems to follow the rule of lower numbers indicating a lower price — and if so, the EV3 will end up being the cheapest electric car Kia has released to date. That, however, thankfully doesn’t mean that the EV3 will be a low-end car — it just means that Kia may be pushing the boundaries on electric car pricing.
