Segway will release new e-scooter during CES (8.-11. Jan. 2019). The new model called Segway Max is intended for scooter-share companies like Lime and Bird. This new scooter is supposed to be more comfortable and longer lasting than other models. It was reported that Lime had some problems with their fleet (Segway by Ninebot ES models). Bird is using the Xiaomi M365, which is actually also produced by Ninebot.
So will this be the new ultimate e-Scooter to rule them all? It was also reported that the new Segway Max will be “highly customizable”. In my field test Xiaomi M365 vs Ninebot ES2 I learned that Ninebot ES2 offers the better features, but Xiaomi prevails because of the better driving experience. I hope Segway combines the best features for a new model that outperforms them both. Stay tuned as more info will be released soon!
