LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2024 – TÜV Rheinland, an international independent third-party testing, inspection, and certification body, has presented, during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Segway-Ninebot, a company in the field of intelligent short-distance transportation and robotics, with the "Range at Max. Speed" Quality-mark and China-mark. The dual certification is for its eKickScooters series, specifically the Ninebot eKickScooter E2 Pro (051405U, together with 2 other models). The Ninebot KickScooter Max G2 (051501U, together with 2 other models) also passed the above dual certification concurrently.

"For over 150 years, TÜV Rheinland has been committed to providing safe and sustainable solutions for the challenges that arise in the interaction process between humans, the environment, and technology, striving to create a better future that can meet the needs of both humans and the environment. We see a rapid growth trend in the market demand for eKickscooters. However, as a new category, many eKickscooter products currently show a certain discrepancy between the official declared range and the endurance mileage in actual use, which in turn affects the riding experience of users. The market urgently needs standardization and guidance for inspection, testing, and certification methods. For this reason, TÜV Rheinland has launched the 'Range at Max. Speed' Quality-mark and China-mark services, accurately tested the endurance performance of eKickscooters, and providing professional guidance and assurance for consumers to purchase with confidence. With the help of TÜV Rheinland’s Quality-mark and China-mark, we hope that companies can continuously improve their product performance, technological innovation capabilities, and brand reputation, both internationally and in China. Our aim is for these products to travel far and have a wide reach in overseas markets, while also standing firmly and leading the way in China", highlighted Jay Yang, Vice President of TÜV Rheinland Greater China Electrical.

Utilizing the EN 17128:2020 standard applied to personal light electric vehicles, the UL 2272 standard for safety electrical systems for personal e-mobility devices, and the EN 60335-1 standard for electrical appliances used for household and similar purposes, TÜV Rheinland conducted focused inspections on the endurance characteristics of Segway-Ninebot's two KickScooters series. This was done based on tests for electrical safety, structural safety, and tyre characteristics. The evaluation results showed that the actual rideable distances at the respective products' maximum speed matches their official declared ranges.

"Since its establishment, Segway-Ninebot has always been globally oriented with an international perspective, focusing on leading the innovation and transformation of intelligent short-distance transportation and robotics products. We are honored to receive the dual Quality-mark and China-mark certification from TÜV Rheinland. We are also very grateful for the rigorous and professional technical support provided by the TÜV Rheinland expert team during the audit process, which has taken us to a higher level in areas such as technological innovation leadership and excellent quality construction. In the future, we look forward to further expanding our cooperation with TÜV Rheinland," stated Tom Hebert, VP of Sales, Segway Inc.
