The average cost of an electric skateboard starts anywhere from $200 to around several thousand dollars. More popular e-skateboard brands cost around $400 to $2000. Prices vary depending on the type of motor, wheel, battery size, truck and deck. The brand name of the e-skateboard also affects the overall price of the device.

What Makes an Electric Skateboard Expensive
E-skateboards can be quite expensive. The electric components of the e-board make them expensive. The battery and the electric motor are the two most expensive components of the electric skateboard. The li-on battery alone already costs around $150 to $500 a piece. The electric motor costs from $50 to $300. That amount alone adds up to the high price tag attached to most electric skateboards.
The remote control, ESC receiver and computing unit and the wiring also adds up to the total cost of the e-skateboard. The production itself is also costly because there are no huge manufacturing factories available yet to manufacture the device in bulk. With a high demand for the product and not so many brands offering e-skateboards, the law of supply and demand dictates the price of the device to be higher.
Picking the Best Electric Longboard Based on Price
Buying your first electric keyboard is quite exciting, but will most likely do a dent on your budget. Making a good purchase depends on your due diligence in finding the best electric longboard. If you are looking to buy a more affordably tagged e-skateboard, you still have to look into that overall quality of your skateboard to make the most out of your purchase.
