NIU DEBUTS ELECTRIC SCOOTER IN U.S. AT CES
NIU Technologies launches their new scooter in the U.S. at CES
It is built for urban commuting, and features 14″ wheels, a Bosch 3000W hub motor and two removable 2.1kWh batteries. It boasts up to 80 miles on a single charge, depending on speed, and can reach a top speed of over 40 mph.
NIU is opening stores to provide customers with a high-quality experience and customer care. Potential customers can test ride before buying at stores in Austin, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago and Honolulu.
There is a built-in, prepaid SIM card that allows 24/7 connectivity to an app that can offer real-time intelligence and advanced safety features, including GPS functionality, anti-theft and remote tracking, vehicle diagnostics and access to a customer service help center. The app can also keep tabs on the battery life, motor performance and overall vehicle health, and even perform over-the-air updates. Range can be more accurate as the app learns a rider’s driving habits.
The e-scooters feature dual-piston hydraulic disc brakes, oil shocks, LED lighting, an LCD dashboard, and a USB charging port.
Prices start in the mid-$2000 range (depending on state and federal taxes and import tariffs on Chinese goods).
