Segway Launches New UIFI E-scooter

Segway Ninebot Introduces The New UIFI Electric Scooter In China

If the word “Segway” still conjures up images of tour guides and mall cops, you might just be missing out on some great e-mobility rides.

Beijing-based Ninebot acquired the Segway brand back in 2015. Since then, the name Segway has expanded to include all sorts of personal transportation devices like scooters, go-karts, and dirt bikes. Now, Segway-Ninebot has announced a slew of new products for the Chinese market, including a compact sit-down scooter that’s small enough to fold up and fit in the back of a car.

 

It Gets Really, Really Small

Dubbed the UiFi, this scooter has a larger battery compartment at its base compared to other Nineway-built scooters, though even with the addition of a low seat it still has the same general shape as your normal kick scooter.

It’s just 1.2 meters (3.9 feet) long, making it one of the smallest sit-down scooters on the market. It also weighs only 33 kg (72.75 lbs), which makes it easier to maneuver.

When it comes to power, it offers three-speed power adjustment, reaching a maximum speed of 32 km/h (19.9 mph). Ninebot also claims that the UiFi can go up to 45 km (28 miles) on a single charge. For safety features, the scooter has e-ABS and a one-button cruise control system.

The Segway-Ninebot UiFi will retail for ¥2,999 (a little under $450), making this pretty darn affordable for a cute little commuter scooter that’ll also give your legs a break.
