NIU announces its first electric scooter

The NIU scooter comes in two variants, Pro and Sport, and the Pro scooter in the US has a speed of 19.8 miles per hour, while the Sport version has a speed of 17.4 miles per hour.

Both versions in Europe will have a regulated top speed of 25 kilometers per hour (15.5 mph).

  • The Pro has a range of about 31 miles (50 km) on a single charge of 7.5 hours, while the range of the Sport Edition will be 25 miles (40 km) on a single charge of 5.5 hours.

  • For propulsion, NIU offers a 350-watt motor and 486-watt lithium-ion battery pack for the Pro scooter, while the Sport is powered by a 300-watt motor and a 365-watt-hour battery pack.

  • The scooter is waterproof, foldable, with Bluetooth app connectivity and renewable braking.

  • The cheapest version of the scooter starts at $ 599, although the NIU has not yet released any other price details.

NIU in North America is best known for its popular $ 2,000 electric bikes that have been used by shared carriers such as Revel and Lime.

Electric bikes are available for purchase in a few US cities, including San Francisco, San Diego, Austin, Chicago, Washington DC, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Honolulu.

The scooter will start selling in June 2021, with US and European deliveries scheduled for July 2021.

Global retail sales will start in August 2021, with the possibility to purchase the scooters online or at any of NIU's dealerships and stores in Europe and North America.

Electric scooters are widely available in the United States, where models from Segway-Ninebot, Inokim, Acton, Unagi, and others are widely available from a number of different retailers.

However, battery-powered electric bikes are difficult to come by in North America.

Big manufacturers, like Gogoro, tend to focus their sales on larger markets like China, while the US is left to weaken thanks to its auto-focused infrastructure.
