UQiGT Pro is powered by a Bosch 1200W electromotor with top speeds up to 45km/h. The currently estimated range on a single charge is 50km while driving 45km/h and 85km/h while driving 25km/h.
All scooters come with a prepaid Vodafone SIM card which allows for a 24/7 connection to the NIU app. The app provides owners with real-time intelligence such as GPS, anti-theft tracking, remote tracking, scooter diagnostics, and a help center. Furthermore, NIU uses the riding data from all scooters to constantly optimize the performance of its fleet.
“We aim to bring a new concept of mobility to Europe, enabling people to try a new lifestyle and way of exploring the urban world,” says Token Hu, NIU co-founder. “With the global e-mobility market expected to reach $62.2 billion by 2025, cities are looking into alternative ways of transport to reduce traffic congestion and the resultant air pollution. We are confident that our two all-new e-scooters will help transform the face of urban mobility by offering a high-tech, fun and sustainable alternative to other means of transport.”
‘’We see many millennials switching to e-scooters for their daily commute; the first thing they consider ahead of purchasing, is whether it makes them look good, and if it addresses their generation’s needs and expectations” VP of Design, Carl Liu added.
By the end of the second quarter on June 30th 2019, NIU has sold more than 810,000 scooters worldwide and accumulated 3 billion kilometers rider mileage across 34 countries since its launch in 2014.
