NIU, the world’s leading provider of smart urban mobility solutions, held a keynote speech and press conference at Web Summit, which features the world’s top policy experts, decision-makers and stakeholders. NIU’s CEO Dr. Yan Li gave a keynote speech on mobility’s new viability on the Auto/Tech stage with BBC’s reporter Leisha Santorelli and shared how NIU is part of a fastest growing network of companies aiming to solve urban mobility issues globally. Dr. Yan Li shed light on how the company is using its anonymized big data to regularly update its products, improve its real-time supply chain knowledge, and to develop insurance and financing services for its customers.
Dr. Yan Li also shared an exclusive preview for the launch of an all-electric bicycle at EICMA in Milan on Nov 6, 2019 – the largest motorbike exhibition in Italy. The NIU Aero EB-01 is the most energy efficient urban mobility vehicle NIU has ever designed. It is currently estimated that a standard 4-5-hour charge can give a rider more than 60-150km range on full power assist in Europe, and for the USA version, a rider will be able to ride at a top speed of 28mph for over 60-100km range.
NIU has partnered with suppliers such as Panasonic, Shimano and Bafang to create the NIU Aero EB-01. Detailed specifications of the NIU Aero EB-01 can be provided upon request. The new offering marks NIU’s entry into a new EV market segment with a re-imagined electric bicycle for the European and USA markets.
