Electric scooters are becoming an increasingly popular aspect of travel, so it makes sense that Xiaomi. The Chinese electronics firm most notable for its mobile and smart home devices, is joining the race. With this scooter, that’s what it did, and now there’s a larger and stronger Pro version. The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Review has an enlarged touchscreen so that you can clearly see your speed. A larger design, and longer battery life, so it tends to be an all-around plus-sized upgrade on paper. With simplicity and convenience in mind, every component of the Mi Electric Scooter is made. Using the same geometric design language, the scooter frame, modules and attachments place usability and the customer at the front. The scooter is kicked to life by a button and the red style highlights add modernity. It makes Mi Electric Scooter look right, and feel right.

Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Review
There are certain features of this electric scooter that will help you in making right decision. Some of them are given below:
There’s no doubt about the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter being a bulky beast. It’s not entirely easy to pick up and carry, with a weight of 14.2 kg, and it’s very heavy relative to most other electric scooters, varying from 8 kg to 12 kg. With a 45 cm x 15 cm deck to balance on, and a handlebar that rises 99 cm off the deck, the weight of the scooter is clearly different from a non-electric scooter, and while you’re standing on it, you certainly notice the strength of the M365 Pro.
There are three riding modes in the Xiaomi: Eco, Walking, and a third cryptically referring to as ‘S’ which we used to refer to as ‘Speed Mode! ‘. By double-pressing the button between the handlebars, you can turn between them, which is a little difficult to do when driving, but we found ourselves braking or slowing down as we needed to change direction. Eco Mode caps at 15kmph (9.3 mph), which was ideal for negotiating crowded roads and weaving in traffic queuing vehicles, which did not exhaust as fast as other modes through the tank. However, for all but the busiest or quietest roads, it felt a little too sluggish, and the driving mode was always easier for these circumstances.
Speed and Range
The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Review is powered by a 500W peak power output brushless DC motor with a 250-watt motor. In 6.3 seconds, the Xiaomi Mi accelerates from 0 to 24 km/h and has a battery pack of 280 watts per hour that can cross 23.5 kilometers. Considering its decent range, the Xiaomi Mi M365 weighs 12 kg, which is surprisingly light. This is light enough, depending on the physical state, to take up a flight of stairs (or more). The Xiaomi folds 43 centimeters by 48 centimeters to a slim 107 centimeters. It is compact enough to slip or fold into the trunk of most vehicles to carry public transport. If you are on particularly busy bus or train, the handlebars do not fold and will get in the way.

The cockpit is well-designed and clean. The right handlebar has an elevator with a thumb-controlled switch. There is a handbrake on the left handlebar that governs both the regenerative engine brake and the electronic disc brake. Also on the left and thumb-triggered is a “look out scooter rider zipping by” bell. In the folded location, the thumb button also acts as a latch to secure the scooter. Four LEDs in the middle suggest battery life. Lights are often operated by a power on and off switch. The Xiaomi (and other 3rd party) mobile apps provide pace, distance travelled, and other scooter vitals. This is a great feature, but maybe a little wasteful and needs to be out of your phone, in a holder, and to drain the battery.
On the control panel, you can see the battery level. It uses small circular lights instead of displaying real percentages. It means the battery level is at 100-86 percent while all four power lights are on. Three lights stay illuminated until the battery begins to go down, while one pulses. Low power is shown by a blinking bottom power sign. Both the lights go out until the power is gone, and the scooter steadily slows down. The scooter has a power-saving feature that restricts the maximum speed to 11.2 mph to conserve on batteries.
Lights and Tires
The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Review has LED headlights and taillights that are combined. The front light is mounted raised, helping to further throw light and improve visibility. The rear light is small and low-mounted. Neither is very solid. The scooter has 21.6-centimeter pneumatic (air-filled) tires on the front and back. Pneumatic tires are vulnerable to flat tires, but this is vastly outweighed by the significant advantages of greater grip and ride efficiency. The deck of the Mi has 45.0-centimeters with standing area of 15.0-centimeters and ground clearance of 8.9-centimeters. Since the height of the ground clearance is short, when going along high curbs or ledges, it is easy to bottom out. This deck is smaller in height, but for a lightweight scooter, it is common. 98.0 cm is the deck-to-handlebar distance.
Ride Statistics Measuring App
Transform the dashboard into a mobile. Simply pair the Mi Electric Scooter via Bluetooth and then use the app to display current speed, remaining strength, and other statistics for real-time riding. Firmware patches guarantee you can have the finest possible riding experience.

Overall, one of the trendiest and well-designed scooters available on the market today is the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Review. Considering its expense, it has very good build quality. Beautiful welds, simple sensors, and a powerful non-slip deck are in the frame. Slightly higher on the neck of the scooter, the M365 folds quickly and at a joint. This geometry purpose stops weight-bearing weak-point from becoming a folding joint. Flat tires and rear brake changes are the most common problems riders face with the Xiaomi Mi. If you have trouble with it outside your warranty era, one thing we really like about the Mi is the availability of spare parts for this scooter and a broad knowledge base of repair know-how.
