What You Need to Know About the Segway-Ninebot E2 Plus

The Segway-Ninebot brand is probably one of the most recognisable electric scooter names in the world, repeatedly producing top-of-the-line rides that cater to unique segments in the e-mobility market. While it has gradually added increasingly powerful, technologically levelled-up rides across 2022-2023, occasionally they launch a new, budget-friendly model that caters for those who want something simple and cheap without sacrificing overall build quality. 

And this year is no different, because in 2023, Segway released one of its most lightweight electric scooters: the Segway E2 Plus

At only 14.4 kg, the E2 Plus is designed for efficient commutes, particularly for covering the first and last miles of your journey. Despite its sleek and modern appearance, it only costs $649—an astonishingly low price tag for such a well-built device, especially when you consider that Segway-Ninebot aren’t what you’d call synonymous with ‘cheap and nasty.’

If you are in the market for a dependable yet affordable electric scooter, read on to know whether the Segway-Ninebot E2 Plus is an option worth considering.

Why Choose the E2 Plus

The Segway E2 Plus scooter is a great choice for anyone looking for a practical electric scooter to take them from Point A to Point B. It is ideal for short commutes, running quick errands, or simply getting around town for casual rides. 

Here are the main reasons why you should consider the E2 Plus: 

Lightweight and portable

The Segway E2 Plus's defining characteristic is its lightweight design, which makes it one of the best choices for people who are looking for an electric scooter that is easy to carry and transport.

It also sports the brand’s trademark quick-folding mechanism, a feature that allows you to quickly fold or unfold the electric scooter whenever you need to. It’s also a secure design, with a double safety catch that prevents your scooter from either accidentally folding down while you’re riding or unfolding when stored. 

And given its small and compact size, you wouldn’t have any trouble fitting it into the boot of your car, inside the bus or train, or in the space beneath your desk.

Excellent quality

Expect nothing less from Segway-Ninebot when it comes to build quality. The E2 Plus may be the brand’s most affordable model, but it doesn’t compromise on important things, from its automotive-grade steel frame to its maintenance-free tyres.

If you want value for your money, the E2 Plus boasts premium components and top-notch 

construction, which makes it one of the best budget electric scooters in the market. 

Law-abiding top speed

The Segway E2 Plus is not known for its blazing speed or acceleration, because it doesn’t have either. But that’s not what the E2 is meant to be, either. Its top speed of 25 kph makes commuting more convenient for individuals who live in states with strict speed limits. 

For example, here in Melbourne, electric scooters are street-legal, but you cannot operate one that can exceed 25 kph on public roads. Therefore, your options may be limited to electric scooters like the Segway E2 Plus.

Comfortable rides

The E2 Plus may be light and portable, but it definitely doesn’t feel precarious or unstable. Equipped with dual brakes (a front electronic brake and a rear mechanical drum brake), you are assured of strong and efficient stopping power when you ride.

Although the Segway E2 Plus does not have a suspension system, its hollow tires help to absorb some road vibrations. However, this is not enough to handle challenging obstacles or off-road terrain. This is understandable, as it is difficult to find an electric scooter that is designed for difficult road conditions at this price point.

Finally, even though the E2 Plus is smaller than other electric scooters, its deck provides ample space for your feet, making your rides feel more pleasant. 

Integrated lights

The Segway E2 Plus provides a safe ride, even at night. It has a bright 2.1W headlight that can be seen from up to 13.5 metres away, as well as a large rear brake light. This lighting system ensures that you will be visible to drivers, other riders, and pedestrians when riding in low-light conditions.

For added visibility, the E2 Plus also has RGB ambient lighting under the deck and E-Mark-certified reflectors. 

Advanced technology

In terms of technology, you might not expect much from an electric scooter of this price point, but the Segway-Ninebot E2 Plus is here to prove us all wrong. 

Segway E2 Plus

It is fitted with a large 2.8-inch dashboard screen that displays essential information like speed and battery. Its 25° tilt angle is an ergonomic design choice, helping you to quickly and comfortably watch the display while riding. 

You won’t miss out on the experience of personalising your ride either, as the E2 Plus comes integrated with Bluetooth connectivity. This allows you to sync your ride with the official Segway-Ninebot app and remotely lock or unlock your e-scooter, access your riding stats, and more. 

It also features Segway-Ninebot’s Smart Battery Management System, which enhances and prolongs your battery life.

Who Is The Segway E2 Plus For?

This electric scooter is best suited for:

  • Commuters: The Segway E2 Plus provides an efficient way to commute or get around town. Because of its size and weight, it is portable enough to be taken with you on public transport or stored at your workplace. It’s a great choice for covering short distances or the first and last miles of your commute.
  • Beginners: Due to its limited speed and range, the Segway E2 Plus is also ideal for riders who are still beginning to get acquainted with riding. It is also a good option for teenagers who are too old for kids’ e-scooters and too young for rides with higher speed and power.
  • Students: The E2 Plus possesses just the right amount of speed and range for riding around campus. Plus, you don’t have to worry about where to store it, as it can effortlessly fit in your dorm room closet or your locker. 

You need to look somewhere else if:

  • You require more speed: With its low top speed, the Segway E2 Plus is not capable of delivering hair-raising rides. If you are looking for a high-speed adventure, you need to consider other electric scooters—check out our range of ludicrous e-scooters, which can reach speeds of up to 70 kph. 
  • Your routes go uphill: While the E2 Plus can ride across inclines of up to 12% or 7°, it does not have the capacity to tackle steeper hills. If you live in a hilly area, you need to invest in a more powerful electric scooter. Perhaps consider one from our all-terrain or off-road lineups that can handle angles as high as 25°.
  • You have long-distance commutes: The Segway E2 Plus is a trusty commuter e-scooter, but it can’t cover long ranges. Thus, if your workplace or your campus is a long way from home, the better option would be a long-range electric scooter that can take you as far as 100 km.
  • You weigh more than 90 KG: The E2 Plus can only handle a rider weight of up to 90 KG, so realistically, if you weigh above 85 KG you’re going to start to see a decline in speed and range. You would be better off going for the E2’s older sibling, the F2 Plus. This model has a higher weight capacity of 120 KG and also comes with a longer range plus indicators. 

Wrapping Up

The Segway-Ninebot E2 Plus electric scooter is one of its kind, providing commuters with a practical and budget-friendly option that doesn't compromise on quality and comfort.

Its lightweight design allows it to be portable—an excellent choice for riders who need to lift, carry, and transport their e-scooters—while its integrated features and impressive build make us wonder how it can offer so much for a price tag so low. 

The E2 Plus is not designed to reach breathtaking speeds, that’s for sure. However, it is here to make riding accessible to all kinds of riders, whether you are a beginner, a commuter who lives in an area with strict regulations, or someone who simply wants a reliable electric ride that doesn’t cost too much.

At this price point, you can’t find another scooter like the Segway-Ninebot E2 Plus.
