Ensuring Precision and Trust: TÜV Rheinland’s Segway-Ninebot eKickScooters Certification

TÜV Rheinland has a remarkable legacy of over 150 years, dedicated to providing safe and sustainable solutions that bridge the gap between humans, the environment, and technology. Their recent focus on the rapidly growing eKickscooter market stems from a critical observation. Many electric scooter products in this emerging category have displayed discrepancies between their officially declared range and their real-world endurance mileage, impacting the user experience. To address this issue, TÜV Rheinland introduced the “Range at Max. Speed” Quality-mark and China-mark services.

With the help of TÜV Rheinland’s Quality-mark and China-mark, we hope that companies can continuously improve their product performance, technological innovation capabilities, and brand reputation, both internationally and in China.”


Meeting Stringent Safety and Performance Standards

To ensure the accuracy of their assessments, TÜV Rheinland applied rigorous standards such as EN 17128:2020 for personal light electric vehicles, UL 2272 for safety electrical systems in personal e-mobility devices, and EN 60335-1 for electrical appliances used in households. Through focused inspections encompassing electrical safety, structural safety, and tire characteristics, TÜV Rheinland confirmed that the actual rideable distances at the maximum speed of Segway-Ninebot’s KickScooters align with their officially declared ranges.
