Niu Electric Scooters Launched in Nepal
Eco Infinity, authorised distributors of NIU electric two-wheelers in Nepal, showcased their flagship model for the first time during the NADA auto show and will be launching the N1S this week. “NIU is a mash-up created by technologists, industrial designers, engineers and creative designers who came together to change the way
urban citizens explore their city landscape. We believe that NIU vehicles will forever change the way urbanities live, work, and socialise in the city,” said Anupama Rajbhandari, Senior Marketing Assistant at Eco Infinity. The NIU N1S will be available at an introductory price of Rs 2,65,000.
The model is powered by an original 29Ah or 150 watt-hour Panasonic lithium battery capable of supporting an 80 km range (or about four typical days of urban commuting). The battery only weighs 10 kg and comes with a portable battery charger, making it easy to carry indoors for the six hours it takes to fully recharge. “We have also provided charging stations in Labim Mall and at the Evo store in Sherpa Mall,” Rajbhandari added.
N1S comes equipped with a BOSCH developed 2400W Motor, NIU’s proprietary Field Oriented Control for improved performance and a hydraulic double disc brake system with EBS. At 2500 RMB, the lithium-ion battery is the most expensive part of the scooter. Most scooter batteries in China are clunky, lead-acid bricks. Lithium-ion batteries are lighter, more environmentally friendly and last longer.
“NIU now enjoys a strong position in the European and Asian automotive markets due to its strong brand portfolio and low maintenance costs,” said Rajbhandari. The company is soon planning to introduce two more scooters — M1 Pro and M1 Sports — in the Nepali market.
“Electric vehicles are the future since they have the ability to reduce our carbon footprint and make the world a cleaner place. It is important that we all gear up for this change to deal with the health problems caused by emissions and the broader problems caused by accelerating climate change,” said Rajbhandari.
