Portable Mobility Scooters

Walking for my father is getting increasingly difficult. He currently uses a stroller when out and about but he's struggling with that now too. We're thinking of getting him a mobility scooter so he can go into town with my Mum. It would need to be able to fit in a hatchback car (Kia Niro). We've looked at a few online but the bit that I'm a little concerned about is the weight of the heaviest part on the ones that pull apart.. The lightest I can see is 10kg and my mother could lift that now, but it would be a struggle and as she's over 80 I think it would soon become too much for her and the scooter would only be able to be used when I was with them. Does anyone know of any which have lighter components? We don't need it to go over 3mph or for longer than 5 miles. He wouldn't go out on his own on it, it's just so he can get out and go into town with Mum and come and watch the dog run in the park which has proper tarmac paths.
