The mono-brand store exhibits NIU’s signature design philosophy and is located at 74 Dalry Road, Edinburgh, EH11 2AY, just 300 meters from Haymarket train station.

All NIU vehicles are linked to the NIU Cloud allowing customers to be connected to their vehicle 24/7 through an Android/iPhone app. Customers can check their battery status, view riding history, locate their vehicle, and be alerted of any unauthorized movement of their scooter.

“NIU Edinburgh’s goal is to be at the forefront of the electric transport boom in Scotland.
We want to make our cities greener and change the way people think about urban
transport by educating customers on the benefits of electric urban mobility.

We aim to introduce NIU scooters to new demographic who may have never considered this way of commuting and show that it’s possible to travel in a quicker, greener and more cost effective way.
Through our partnership with one of the world’s leading electric urban mobility manufacturers NIU, we have brought something fresh and exciting to Scotland’s emerging urban mobility market.

NIU Edinburgh will be the first flagship store in Scotland, and Scotland’s first dedicated
electric vehicle dealership specializing in the sales and rental of smart Electric mopeds & Electric motorcycles “says Ross Anderson NIU Edinburgh Flagship Store Manager. “Our store is supported by a professional team of NIU experts who not only showcase the options and benefits of NIU products but also provide tailored customer service, offering help and advice to make the most of NIU vehicles. We believe working with NIU will help to promote a more ecologically oriented lifestyle and reduce the level of toxic pollutions in Edinburgh.”

“Edinburgh has always been at the forefront when it comes to moving towards a net-zero emissions Scotland and was recently nominated the “greenest” city in the UK.  There is a massive push locally and at Scottish Government level to promote the sales of low emissions vehicles across Scotland. Edinburgh has a massive problem with congestion, and are currently consulting on the introduction of city centre green zones.

To incentivize sales the Scottish Government introduced The Electric Vehicle Loan scheme, this is available for businesses and consumers across Scotland, this means an INTEREST FREE loan funded by transport Scotland is available for anyone looking to make the switch to Electric. The loan is up to £10,000 for personal and £120,000 for businesses and can be taken over a 1–6 year period.”
