NIU KQi2 Pro Summary

This is the KQi2. It’s by NIU, a company you probably haven’t heard of yet if you live in the US, but is one of the most experienced and high-volume electric vehicle makers on the planet.

NIU has over 2 million electric mopeds on the streets–that’s more units on the road than Tesla. Very recently, they turned their attention to e-scooters. And the KQi2, their newest and least-expensive model, may quickly become their best seller.

We’ve spent a week testing it against every scooter in its class, comparing range, top speed, performance, and quality.

Having made over 2-million seated electric scooters, including the ones used by rental companies like Revel, it’s no wonder NIU’s first electric scooters, the KQi3 and KQi2, look and feel like real vehicles and not toys.

As a global heavyweight in light electric vehicles, it’s clear how NIU has been able to produce scooters with quality that’s competitive to top-shelf Segway-Ninebots, but at the price of a GoTrax.

The NIU KQi2 is an impressive scooter from a company we’re very excited about. We think it’s one of the very best choices for new riders because it’s an easy, fun, and high-quality ride with a price and warranty that seem too good to be true. NIU is one of the top companies we’re watching.
