All of us need to do our weekly shop and when using your Quingo to help out in this task it is important to be clear on what can and should be safely carried. Using the shopping basket on your Quingo gives you plenty of space for your shopping but being aware of the storage capacity of the basket will give you an indication of what you can safely take if you’re planning on doing a larger shop.
All scooters in the Quingo range come with a removable front shopping basket and there are two types. The table below shows which model has which, their relative dimensions and their carrying capacity.
|Model||Basket Type||Inside Dimensions||Carrying Capacity||Scooter Carrying Capacity (Including User)|
|Quingo Air||Front Wire Mesh||34 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm||8 Kg||21 st/136 Kg|
|Quingo Classic||Front Wire Mesh||34 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm||8 Kg||25 st/159 Kg|
|Quingo Plus||Front Wire Mesh||34 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm||8 Kg||25 st/159 Kg|
|Quingo Vitess||Front High Impact Plastic||36 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm||8 Kg||28.6 st/182 Kg|
|Quingo Toura||Front High Impact Plastic||36 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm||8 Kg||35 st/220 Kg|
|Quingo Flyte||Wire Magnetic Under Seat||40 cm x 20 cm x 25 cm||16 Kg*||25 st/159 Kg|
* This is the combined capacity of the under seat basket and the optional Front High Impact Plastic basket. The optional Front High Impact Plastic basket has the following dimensions and capacity:
36 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm 8 Kg
The Wire Mesh basket equates to about two lightly packed standard supermarket carrier bags while the moulded, high impact plastic versions have slightly more capacity and the advantage of a chassis mounted fixing meaning steering remains unaffected by the weight of the basket. The maximum carrying capacity on all styles is 8kg.
It should be noted that if you plan on shopping for some particularly heavy items, this can affect your scooters range. The heavier the load, the more reduced your scoters range will be. For more information about this please look at our earlier blogpost on getting the most out of your Quingo’s batteries.
Storage options and accessories for your Quingo
Lockable storage Box:
The Quingo Classic and the Quingo Plus models have the option of a Front Lockable Storage box, which attaches to the front of your scooter replacing the basket. This is ideal for protecting and storing more valuable personal items.
Large Capacity Basket
This larger, wire, water-resistant basket has an easy-to-use Velcro cover. The dimensions are close to double that of the standard basket measuring 30cm x 48cm x 26cm. This is basket option is available on all models with chassis mounted fixings.
All Quingo scooters have the option of having a rear shopping bag and crutch holders.
We hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions relating to storage or any other subject please visit the accessory section of the Quingo Scooter Users Website or call our Customer Services Department.
