Xiaomi Electric Scooter Essentials
Pickup currently unavailable
Intuitive, easy to use, portable, and compact. Those are the general properties of the popular Xiaomi scooters. The compact dimensions and a fast-folding mechanism allow the Xiaomi Essential scooter to endure daily combined commuting, always taking you safely to your destination. Its weight of 12 kg makes it ideal for frequent carrying, as you will have no problem taking it with you, for instance, to public transport or carry it to your office. With its speed of 20 km/h and a range of up to 20 km, this scooter has been designed for every electromobility enthusiast who has just started to use this form of transport. This scooter benefits from proven design used in the previous Xiaomi scooters while adding various enhancements to make your experience even better. It visually differs from its predecessor – the M365 Pro model – only by its yellow reflectors. If we were to compare it to the 1S model, the main and only difference is the smaller-capacity battery, which gives it a lower speed and a shorter range.
Body, design and equipment
The minimalist design and a unified geometric look of the scooter will captivate you at the very first sight. The scooter functions as easily as it looks. The rigid scooter frame is made of aerospace aluminum characterized by low density and high structural strength, being able to carry riders weighing up to 100 kg, which is a respectable load capacity considering its low weight. The frame also comes with excellent thermal conductivity and is highly corrosion-resistant, thanks to which it will last longer. With its weight of only 12 kg, the Xiaomi Essential electric scooter is perfectly adapted to be carried and maneuvered on stairs or sidewalks. Folding it requires three simple steps. Hold the lever, fold the scooter, snap the scooter’s bell into the latch on the rear wheel and you’re done. The result is a compact and safe shape that is great for storage at home, in the office or in a car. All riding statistics are at your fingertips in your smartphone. Clip it to the holder on the handlebars, connect it via Bluetooth and use the app to monitor your current speed, remaining battery life and other real-time riding statistics. The regular updating of the operating system will bring you the best possible riding experience.
Safety and ride quality
The Xiaomi brand does care about safety of its customers, which is the reason for equipping the scooter with anti-slip handles. These handles provide a comfortable grip and excellent control over the scooter, even during longer trips. You have your speed under absolute control, as well. Gently push the thumb lever down and keep accelerating until you reach the desired speed. The powerful headlights for riding at night are absolutely essential. Despite this fact, many scooters are not equipped with them. For safety reasons, the Xiaomi electric scooters are fitted with very powerful 1.1 W LED lights providing a range of up to 6 meters. You also have at your disposal a braking red tail light. When you press the brake lever, the bright tail light lights up red to warn other pedestrians and vehicles on the road. The scooter is equipped with a rear mechanical disc brake and also with E-ABS – a regenerative anti-lock braking system for efficient and sensitive braking with a braking distance of only 4 meters. The air-filled tires further contribute to smooth riding. Both 8.5-inch wheels absorb shocks and feature an anti-slip pattern.
Power and range
The Xiaomi Essential electric scooter has a single front carbonless electric motor providing a 250 W nominal power and capable of producing a total peak output of up to 500 W. The high-quality 5.2 Ah battery comprises multiple high-capacity lithium batteries and offers you a 20 km long ride on a single charge. The smart power management displays the battery status in the app and notifies you immediately of any problem. To prolong battery life, the Xiaomi Essential scooter converts kinetic energy to electricity during braking and returns it to the battery. The regenerative brake also contributes to better performance by assisting during emergency braking while simultaneously extending battery life. Moreover, the Xiaomi Essential features an algorithm similar to adaptive cruise control systems used in cars, which receives a signal from the speed sensor in order to maintain a smooth and stable riding speed. This reduces demands placed on the user and eliminates rider’s fatigue while also allowing optimal use of the battery when taking longer trips.
Use and practicality
The rigid body and sufficient power predestine this scooter to be used in city traffic only. Thanks to its reliable electric motor and low weight, it is suitable for frequent carrying, which fact will surely please regular commuters. The air-filled tires partially filter out small bumps or holes, making your ride a little more comfortable. You do not have to worry about any sudden rain shower as this scooter has IP54 rating, which means that it is resistant to splashing water. Given its low weight of 12 kg, it is also suitable for women. You will definitely not sweat much even when having to carry the scooter over longer distances.
The Xiaomi Essential scooter has been designed for simplicity, as the old saying goes: there is beauty in simplicity. The scooter frame, components and accessories use the same geometric design that puts emphasis on ease-of-use. You wake the scooter up with a single button and the yellow accessories give the scooter a modern look. The Xiaomi Essential will provide you with a good look and a good riding feeling.
