Unveiling the Manufacturer Behind Bird Scooters: A Look at the Maker of Urban Mobility Icons

If you've traversed any major city lately, you're likely familiar with the growing presence of electric scooters. Bird scooters, in particular, have become synonymous with urban micro-mobility, offering a convenient and eco-friendly way to navigate through bustling streets. But have you ever wondered who is behind the manufacturing of these nimble transport options that are revolutionizing the way we move?

Bird, the company that operates the e-scooter sharing service, does not manufacture the scooters themselves. Instead, they rely on a few different manufacturers. Initially, Bird scooters were primarily refurbished Xiaomi M365 scooters, which were adapted for heavy use and longevity. As the company expanded, they turned to Segway-Ninebot, another powerhouse in the world of personal transportation, to produce a substantial portion of their fleet, specifically the Bird Zero model that was custom designed for the company.

More recently, Bird has introduced their own custom-designed Bird One scooters which are manufactured through a strategic partnership with Okai, a global leader in electric vehicle manufacturing. The Bird One boasts enhanced durability, a longer lifespan, and better reliability compared to its predecessors.

Bird's collaboration with these industry manufacturers ensures that the scooters are equipped with the latest technology, robust build quality, and features tailored to meet the company's specific needs for shareability and sustainability in the micro-mobility market.

As the electric scooter market As the electric scooter market As the electric scooter market continues to flourish, Bird has shown that its success hinges not only on operational excellence but also on the strategic partnerships it forges with seasoned manufacturers. By continuing to tap into the manufacturing expertise of companies like Xiaomi, Segway-Ninebot, and Okai, Bird is able to field a fleet of scooters that are ready to take on the wear and tear of daily city life while providing a seamless experience for riders.

As a leader in urban mobility solutions, Bird is carving out a new path in transportation, one that is greener, more efficient, and ever more reliant on technological innovation. It's no small wonder that professionals, tourists, and city dwellers worldwide have come to rely on Bird for their daily commutes and urban adventures. Whether you're enjoying a leisurely ride through the park or rushing to your next business meeting, Bird scooters, backed by their esteemed manufacturers, provide a reliable and enjoyable ride.
