Drive AstroLite Vs OneRehab Illusion – Which is the Mobility Scooter for you?

Choosing a mobility scooter can be a big decision but, as an investment into your freedom, you want to make sure you get it right!

If you’re looking for a scooter that offers you all the features, as well as being super lightweight and portable, then look no further.

Here we will delve into 2 different vehicles, so you can decide which would best suit your lifestyle.

Drive AstroLite

  • Super lightweight
  • Adjustable and customisable to suit you
  • Exceptional safety features
  • Maximum range of 6.8 miles
  • Onboard and offboard charging capabilities
  • Maximum weight capacity of 120kg
  • Top speed of 4mph

This lightweight, smooth scooter boasts comfort and convenience! It’s super easy to transport, with the heaviest part being under 10kg, so if you’re searching for something portable and car friendly, this is a great option.

Safety is important, and with the Drive’s removable seat and armrests, you don’t have to compromise adaptability for security. Its front impact bar protects the shroud during impacts, and also acts as a handle for easy manoeuvring in and out of car boots. Added safety features include puncture proof tyres and rear anti-tip wheels, so you can feel at ease while travelling.

While its maximum range is only 6.8 miles, it’s the perfect scooter if you’re looking for trips around the shops made easier, or if you want to get around your local area. The Drive AstroLite also has onboard and offboard charging sockets and comes with batteries included (one of which is airline friendly).

OneRehab Illusion

  • Easy assembly
  • Great safety features
  • Maximum range of 30 miles
  • All-round suspension
  • Maximum weight capacity of 115kg
  • Top speed of 4mph

A similar option is the OneRehab Illusion mobility scooter which, again, is super lightweight and can be easily assembled for transporting. This vehicle is also safety-first, with a secure-grip delta handlebar for full control over manoeuvres. Its front and rear suspension also makes for a comfortable, smooth journey.

However, although the Illusion has a longer maximum range of up to 30 miles, it has the same speed as the Drive AstroLite of 4mph. It’s total weight without batteries is also slightly heavier, so if your lifestyle requires carrying your scooter round with you, this might be something to consider. The maximum weight capacity of the OneRehab Illusion mobility scooter is 115kg compared to the AstroLite’s 120kg. These are all things to consider when looking to invest in your new scooter.

Taking the above into account, these are both great mobility scooter options, depending on your lifestyle and requirements.

Mr Barrett

From start to finish, the service has been fantastic. From ensuring the reconditioned scooter I purchased was in top condition, to the great delivery experience through to dealing with helpful lady on the phone. I was most grateful for the non pushy sales approach - you gave me time to think. Extra information and assistance was immediately on hand. I cannot fault East Coast Mobility!

Audrey Wandsworth

Thank you so much for coming to my aid at Beccles Medical Centre. I wish we had more local businesses, and not just the internet for service.

Robert Smith

Just received my Cabin Car back after work done. The service I got was exceptional.

Not only was the work done to a brilliant standard they collected and delivered it too.

Well done East Coast Mobility! I thoroughly recommend them to anyone with mobility scooter problems.

Thank you to all the staff for a first class experience.

Caroline Long

Absolutely brilliant service, while she was very poorly my Mum's stair lift stopped working and got stuck in a doorway in a really awkward place so I called round a few places but most couldn't help very quickly.

East Coast Mobility not only told me how to move it so it wasn't in the way anymore but they also came out the following day and got it fixed with new batteries! Such a relief and all done sooo quickly.

Vinnie Harris

Great people who are very helpful. Reasonably priced and great variety of products. Highly recommend these people. Great to support a family business.

Jane Walker

I recently needed to purchase a recliner chair for my mother, I contacted East Coast Mobility having dealt with them before, our needs were sorted over the phone, efficiently, with compassion and delivered within 48 hours.

Despite my mother not keen on a recliner chair she absolutely loves it!


It all worked out well in the end.
Easy Access Ramp is pucker!

Love Lynda

Karen Neil

I can't thank Grant and everyone enough at East Coast Mobility for their fantastic help in installing my stairlifts and at an affordable price beating several others I had round.

Giving me back some desperately needed independence for which I thank them with all my heart, they honestly went above and beyond.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending them to anyone that needs help or advice, they really do care.

Paul Green

I feel I must write and say a huge thank you for the service my wife and I received last week when we came to look at new scooters.

We were both very pleased with how comfortable and reliable they are and were pleasantly surprised at the professional approach we received from Grant.

Malcolm Lyell

Excellent service. We needed an engineer late in afternoon to fix my father's stairlift as he could not have got to toilet or bed that night. They left the workshop and attended within 30 mins - fault fixed!

Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Chris Bartlett

A very pleasant place to go for your mobility equipment. Staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I've used them for several years now and they have always accommodated all my disability needs.
