Helbiz (HLBZ), a micro-mobility and the first in its sector to be listed on Nasdaq, announced the expansion of its partnership with Segway, a personal transportation service.

Through this expanded partnership, Segway will supply a wide range of vehicles, from electric scooters to electric bikes, which Helbiz will distribute globally in the cities where it operates. This will enable Helbiz to reach the remarkable milestone of more than 35,000 owned vehicles on the roads around the world during the first half of 2022.

Additionally, a new prototype of the Segway T60 Lite scooter will be introduced and tested for the first time. It will be equipped with a fish-eye camera, an AI-powered system that detects and avoids obstacles, identifies driveable areas and road edges and recognizes pedestrians. All Segway models are developed with the most advanced IoT technologies.

The initial partnership between Helbiz and Segway began two years ago, stemming from their shared mission of reducing pollution in cities by encouraging the use of sustainable micro-mobility.

“We are excited to continue growing our partnership with Segway, who we selected as our worldwide supplier due to its reliable hardware and software,” said Matteo Mammì, CEO of Helbiz EMEA. “Adding these new vehicles to our fleet serves as a fundamental step in our global expansion and supports our commitment to safe and technologically advanced sharing services.”

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Helbiz while supporting its mission to build increasingly smart and sustainable cities,” said Alan Zhao, General Manager of Commercial Mobility Business Division, Segway-Ninebot.

“We are confident that our products, equipped with the most advanced safety technologies, will help Helbiz build a reliable, energy-efficient, and smart fleet,” added Antonio Rapisarda, EMEA General Manager of Commercial Mobility Business Division, Segway-Ninebot.
