Niu arrives in Europe and launches a new scooter, the M1


Chinese startup Niu introduced its second generation electric scooter, the M1, while its older model, the N1, is now available in Europe.

Niu claims to be “the number one selling smart scooter in the world”, and we presented the Niu N1 las year:

The Chinese firm released a revised version of the N1 a few months ago, the N1S. It is this model that is now available to world markets and is being marketed in Europe for €2,699 ($2,960). Compared to the previous model, the N1S has a more powerful motor (2.4 kW peak), a larger battery (29aH) and a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph). It is available in seven different colors.

However, the big news at Niu is the all-new M1, and it certainly is a big improvement over the N1, design-wise. It has an all-in-one body structure and features an omnidirectional headlight. The new scooter comes with an updated battery, that is lighter and charges faster: it weighs 6.5 kg (14.3lb), and charges to 80% in 2 hours. There are 4 models of M1 with different battery sizes offering a range of 50 to 120 km (31 to 75 miles), priced from $490 to $936 (Chinese prices of course). The M-1 should be available in China in the next few months.

With Gogoro and Niu now available in Europe, the market for electric scooters is becoming more and more competitive there, and this can only be a good thing for electric mobility.

    Hi all. Just bought a 45 km/h Niu N1S scooter in Sweden. Does anyone know if it’s possible to make the top speed a little higher?

      I would like to know also, can you try that ?
      1. Press and hold the green start up button, at the same timeturn on the key and hold the brake of the front wheel for more than 1s.
      2. release the green start up button and brake at the same time.
      3. Press and hold the green startup button for more than 10s. After releasing the green startup button hold the brake once.
