BERLIN (Reuters) - German carmaker Volkswagen will join forces with China's NIU to produce battery-powered kick scooters, German newspaper Die Welt reported on Monday without giving sources.

The companies will jointly build the Streetmate model, which has a top speed of 45 kilometers (28 miles) an hour and a range of 60 kilometres, the report said.
