Choose electric over the fuel pump and you’ll be amazed at how much you save. Electric scooters reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) because they are much cheaper to “fuel”, are cleaner with less moving parts which means lower maintenance costs, tax free and you can save a fortune on parking fees!
You won't be alone in thinking fuel costs are crippling your finances at the moment. With no relief on the horizon, why not take matters into your own hands and switch to electric? If you are looking to zip around the city centre or commute to work do it with more money left over in your pocket. Travel from as little as 1p per mile and lower your carbon footprint.
6 reasons you should go Electric with NIU E-Mopeds
Cheap to ride and maintain
It only costs around 1p per mile and there are no exhaust fumes to worry about. Also, with fewer moving parts on an electric scooter, they need far less servicing and maintenance
A range of up to 65 miles from some of our models gives you peace of mind on those longer commutes.
Congestion and parking charges are a constant challenge in the modern urban environment, but with a compact NIU Electric Moped, you’ll have no trouble finding a space to park, even in congested areas. It’s also free to park mopeds in all city centre locations!
Good for the environment
One of the easiest ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to travel emission-free and because our electric mopeds are powered by a rechargeable battery, they have zero emissions.
No more petrol stations
NIU E-Mopeds have removable batteries which means you can charge from any socket in your house or office. Just like you would charge your phone!
