Watts is a unit of power similar to Horsepower. 745.7 Watts are equal to 1 hp. Your 300hp internal combustion car engine is also a 223,710 watt engine.

It generally takes more power to go faster. You need power to overcome drag and friction. In general a higher powered electric scooter will go faster.
