Segway E100: Key features
Segway E100 comes with some of the best safety features. Until and unless the rider does not sit on the scooter, it will not start. Similarly, it will not start until the scooter stand is not pulled back, says the company.
This electric scooter features a keyless system. Apart from the cutely designed key, the remote control has two buttons – one fulfils the purpose of putting the vehicle on ON/OFF mode while the other key helps to lock the scooter.
A 22L seat cask at the bottom of the seat cushion can hold a full-size helmet or items of similar size like a backpack for a 13-inch laptop. There is enough room for items like six books, a MI backpack, and a camera lens case. Aside from that, certain little things can be placed in the corners.
The huge front 220mm + rear 180mm perforated brake disks provide exceptional braking performance and ensure driving safety.
From the upside-down position, there are four buttons on the right of the left handlebar: dimmer, turn light, horn, and continuous speed endurance. The constant speed endurance button is used to lock the current speed of the NineboteScooter E100, reducing rider fatigue.
NineboteScooter E100 is available in four distinct colour options: black, white, blue and red. It has a tiny body size compared to other conventional electric vehicles, with a specified size of 1755mm x 675mm x 1135mm. Despite being an electric vehicle, the NineboteScooter E100 weighs in at 80kg.
The NineboteScooter E100 comes with an intelligent matrix LED headlamp with six lenses that uses intelligent sensor technology to automatically adjust the brightness in response to changes in the environment.
This e-scooter also has convenient feaures like a mobile charger slot, three driving modes, and a Lithium-ion water-resistant battery – IPX5 (Battery-IPX7) and provides better torque.
NineboteScooter takes about seven hours to charge from 4% to 100%. Under the dual battery mode, 200km endurance for a long trip can be achieved.
The NineboteScooter E100 also has an independently developed shock absorption system that precisely calculates and adjusts stiffness and damping to respond to the situation of the road surface, minimising light vibrations.
Segway E100 is priced at Rs 291,000 in Nepal.
