    Comments Off on Segway looks set to improve its sustainability further after LCA success

    Zag Daily looks at how Segway is minimising its environmental impact with the incorporation of recycled plastic and metal into the production of its e-scooters.

    Segway was already aiming to increase its dependence on recycled materials when leading international testing organisation TÜV SÜD studied its environmental impact, and awarded Segway with its first ever Life Cycle Assesement (LCA) award.

    The LCA has facilitated the brand to improve its understanding on carbon emissions and its causes, and build on its recycled materials commitment by working with TÜV SÜD to identify and enforce improvements across its product life cycles (in terms of resource efficiency and reducing environmental impact) to meet its sustainability goals.

    Sustainability evaluation with TÜV SÜD

    Segway’s electric scooter models S90L and Max Plus X were evaluated by TÜV SÜD, and measured by 18 environmental impact categories such as global warming impact, ozone depletion and fossil resource scarcity.

    TÜV SÜD’s findings identified Segway’s raw material stage as a key area for improvement, highlighting its aluminium alloy structural components.

    Since gaining valuable insight into the findings, Segway has responded by highlighting its ongoing commitment to reducing emissions and placing sustainability at the forefront of its quest to identify greener and lower carbon substitutes for its raw materials and components, particularly for plastic and metal components. Recent vehicles developed by the company have used approximately 41% recycled metal in their total metal weight.

    As part of its efforts to further improve its carbon footprint, Segway is also committed to achieving the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

    Comments Off on Segway launches new Ninebot E2 Pro eKickScooter, complete with Apple Find My compatibility

    Micromobility brand Segway has announced the launch of its new Ninebot E2 Pro electric KickScooter that comes equipped with improved battery performance and other new features that look set to meet a wide range of needs for commuters.

    Now available for pre-order, this model has been upgraded from its predecessor and allows users to easily locate their scooter at all times with Apple’s “Find My” function.

    The E2 Pro promises to energise trips with a next-level experience

    The E2 Pro eKickScooter is a major highlight of Segway’s E2 series, with optimised battery performance in comparison to its predecessor E2 Plus. The company states that it “establishes unprecedented standards in urban commuting technology at an affordable cost. It comes built with a 20% increased travel range for commuters and joy riders alike”.

    “Our latest micromobility lineup represents more than just a collection of innovative products. Rather, it’s a testament to our unwavering commitment to transforming the way people navigate and experience the world. This is more than a product launch, it’s an invitation to join us in shaping the future of micromobility, enhancing the experience of every ride.”, Wayde Zhao, Segway Inc president, summarises his thoughts about the brand’s latest portfolio of micromobility products.

    Built with a 750W motor and a rear-wheel drive, the E2 Pro can tackle up inclines of up to 18% with ease, reaching a top speed of 15.5 MPH. In regards to range, its optimised 42V battery goes up to 16.8 miles on a single charge, so riders have plenty of time to commute, or cruise around the local neighbourhood without concerns about being stranded. The scooter also has a 6-point Battery Management System that protects the battery during riding, charging, and storing.

    It works harmoniously with Apple’s “Find My” application, so the scooter’s location can be accessed at all times for extra security and additional peace of mind. The feature has been long in demand by Segway fans because many of its previous designs have been vulnerable to theives in the past, due to simple push-start buttons on these models.

    The new Segway Ninebot E2 Pro boasts more innovative features including built-in front and rear direction indicators to ensure safer travel, and an upgraded anti-skid traction control system, as well as 10-inch air-leakage-proof tubeless tires that offer improved stability. Its integrated LED dashboard has been simplified to a sleeker 2.8-inch size, for users to easily keep tabs on speed, battery levels, and riding modes at a glance.

    Segway Ninebot E2 Pro is available now for pre-ordering

    The E2 Pro has been discounted to a $450 pre-order price from its normal rate of $499.99, with an estimated shipping date from January 25th. Its currently only available to purchase on segway.com, but other retailers are likely to start offering this e-scooter after shipping has commenced.
