Singapore-based e-scooter and micromobility operator Neuron Mobility has made available for hire in Auckaland, New Zealand its orange e-scooters.

Already available in Brisbane, Australia, the next-generation N3 e-scooters have been purpose-built to a commercial grade, specifically for sharing.

Neuron said its 880-strong fleet in Auckland “delivers the highest levels of safety, stability and rider experience, giving users an extra level of confidence” as they travel around the city.

The N3 e-has a wide foot plate for enhanced stability and comfort; large 12-inch wheels with solid silicone tyres to handle uneven ground; plus, electronic and drum brakes to safely tackle Auckland’s hilly terrain.

Also, the N3 e-scooter has geofencing to enforce slow-zones, no-ride zones and no-parking zones. All of Neuron’s e-scooters will be delivered with adjustable safety helmets.

“We are delighted to have been awarded a permit by Auckland Council and look forward to delivering our innovative and safe e-scooter service to the city’s residents,” said Zachary Wang, CEO of Neuron Mobility.

“Our purpose-built N3 e-scooters offer the highest levels of safety, stability and rider experience, we are very excited that they are now available to enjoy right across Auckland through our easy-to-install app,” Wang said.

As part of Auckland Council’s move to integrate micromobility into its transport system, it has announced that up to 3,200 rideshare e-scooters will be available for use across the city, including the 880 allocated to Neuron.

By the end of the first quarter of 2020, Neuron expects to be maintaining a fleet of 2,780 patented e-scooters in Asia Pacific.

So far, the company has recorded over a million trips for its user community, enabling more than 200,000 users to cover over 1.8 million kilometres of city travel.
