Paris, 14 February 2019 – Forsee Power, the French expert in smart battery systems, will supply the batteries for smart scooters manufactured by the Chinese company NIU Technologies. This contract further strengthens the position of Forsee Power in the personal and urban mobility segment, at the same time as extending its expertise in this market.
Confirmed in December last year, this new partnership plans to begin battery deliveries during the first quarter of 2019. Deliveries will then continue through to 2022. This will enable Forsee Power to develop multiple high-level bespoke lithium-ion batteries to power NIU smart electric scooter models, the N-Series, M-Series and U-Series.
The NIU scooters will be powered by Forsee Power battery systems delivering ranges of more than 80 kilometres, with all batteries covered by a two-year warranty. Forsee Power plans to produce more than 100,000 batteries for NIU at its Zhongshan facility in Guangdong province.
