NIU reveals NG-T and M+ electric scooters – meet 2018’s newest e-scooters

Chinese startup NIU has unveiled two new electric scooters at its Urban Mobility Summit in Paris, France, adding the all-new N-GT and the upgraded M+ to its 2018 product range.

The single-seater NG-T (pictured above) is the more powerful of the two e-scooters, packing two removable Panasonic 60V 35Ah lithium-ion batteries with a 3.5 hour charge time, as well as a Bosch 3000W electromotor capable of a 70km/h top speed and offering a 130km single-charge range.

The M+ (below) is a new version of the existing NIU M-Series that has been redesigned as a two-seater scooter. It’s powered by a 48V 42Ah battery pack, paired with a Bosch 1200W electromotor (45 km/h max speed and a range of ~100km).

In terms of passenger load, the N-GT is specified as holding up to 200kg and the M+ as supporting a maximum of 150kg.

Both of the new e-scooters offer a range of smart functionality via the NIU Cloud and supporting app for iOS and Android devices. Some of the software features include GPS, anti-theft tracking, Find My Scooter, and a range of bike diagnostic details. A 24/7 connection to the app is being touted by NIU, helped along by a bundled pre-paid Vodafone SIM card.

NIU NG-T and M+ Price and Release Date: How much do NIU’s 2018 scooters cost?

The new models will be available to pre-order via Indiegogo from the end of June, ahead of an estimated January 2019 delivery date. The crowdfunding page for the new e-scooters hadn’t gone live at time of publication, but we’ll be sure to update this article when it does.

The NG-T comes with a €4499 RRP (about £3960), but will be available to pre-order for €3999 (~£3520) for a limited time. The M+ is priced at €2599 (~£2290) with a pre-sale price of €2299 (~£2025).
