Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter

Electric scooters are wonderful to get around the city with zero emissions. You can ride them to the office, school or just for fun. Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter is the latest creation by the Chinese brand Xiaomi, which is famous for producing high-quality products at an affordable price.

This scooter is no exception, as it comes with a myriad of functions but with a very economical price tag. The scooter looks sleek, runs smoothly and even has an app to help you control different functions. Let’s dive in to learn more details about the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter.

Quality and design of Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter

The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter has been designed with elegance and practicality in mind. The powder-coated aluminum body is sturdy enough to withstand city traffic yet it looks sleek, and the design is minimalistic yet modern.

The folding design of the scooter makes sure that you can easily store it at home or the office. You can simply collapse the scooter by pulling up a lever, folding it and latching it to the rear deck. Once collapsed, it will effortlessly fit in the trunk of your car, or you can carry it between bus stops or to the office. Weighing in at 26.9 lbs., the scooter can easily be carried around short distances even though it is not the lightest scooter on the market.

1. Controls

The scooter’s intuitive and well-placed controls make riding a smooth and comfortable experience. The scooter houses the throttle on the left side and the brake pedal to the right of the handle-bars. The throttle is smooth and doesn’t offer much resistance, so it is easy to hold for long a duration. There are 4 LED indicators on the dashboard that displays the battery level, with a power button underneath.

The handles have an anti-slip finish that gives maximum security to the rider. The handle-bars are narrow and this makes the scooter perfect to navigate through city traffic and tight spaces without scratching them. The headlight is mounted on the front of the handle-bars, and you can turn it on by a push of the button. These ultra-bright 1.1W headlights offer night time visibility for approximately 20 feet. The headlight along with the rear brake light makes it convenient to navigate the scooter at night.

2. App

The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter has a mobile app that displays battery level and riding distance of the scooter. You have to pair the scooter to the app via Bluetooth and all the stats will be displayed. Xiaomi has added a lock feature to the app and you can lock your scooter to protect it while it is parked. You can also use it to enable cruise-control on the scooter which means you don’t have to press the throttle the whole time.

3. Brakes

The Xiaomi scooter has a marvelous dual-braking system, with a standard rear disc brake and regenerative front brakes, that charge the battery by converting kinetic energy to electricity, which is a very cool feature and elongates the battery life. The scooter has a stopping distance of 13.1 feet which is pretty decent, and you will come to a halt quickly even when going downhill.

4. Tires

The scooter has 8.5-inch pneumatic tubeless tires, and it comes with an extra set of tires out of the box. While the tires will absorb some bumps and jerks, the absence of a suspension means that you will have to be vigilant of uneven roads and bend your knees beforehand, to avoid falling off the scooter.

5 Other features

Xiaomi has integrated multiple useful features in this scooter to give you a premium and high-end scooter that is perfect for commuters and casual riders. Some of these features that I have not mentioned above include a bell to alert passengers, a kick-stand for easy storage and an eco-mode that will help to extend the battery life by reducing the power output of the scooter.
