Upgraded Models Tailored for Overseas Markets
The NQiGTs Pro is developed for suburban commuters who need an extra range with larger 14” wheels tailored for performance riding with dual 60V 35Ah batteries. The range is estimated to be 70-150km.
The MQiGT is a redesigned and more powerful version of the MQi+, which can fit two riders. The power is further enhanced with top speed up to 70km/h and an estimated range of 55-135km.
The UQiGT Pro maintains the simplistic design and lightweight body, while the performance and range are much improved by more powerful electromotor, bigger wheels and more advanced battery technology.

Carl Liu, NIU Technologies’ VP of Design, further commented, “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 whether it addresses their generation’s needs and expectations.”

NIU promoted the new autumn collection of NIUPOWER lifestyle apparels. It includes nine stylish sweaters and hoodies. “Users desire more bond to the NIU brand. Apparels would be a good entry point.
