Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3 Review: The Perfect Balance

New year, new Xiaomi electric scooter. Introduced in the summer of 2021, the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 3 positions itself as an evolution of the Xiaomi Mi Scooter 1S, incorporating some features of the Mi Scooter Pro 2. But is the combination successful? Let’s find out in this comprehensive review.

Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3 Design: A Familiar Look

After a few attempts, Xiaomi seems to apply the same strategy to its electric scooters as it does to its smartphones: endlessly iterating its models, potentially causing confusion among consumers. Unsurprisingly, the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 3 closely resembles the Mi Scooter 1S. While it’s true that you don’t change a winning team, some minor improvements wouldn’t have hurt.

At first glance, almost nothing sets the Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3 apart from its predecessors, except for the color of the cables. Previously red, they are now blue to indicate that it is indeed a new model. Apart from that, it retains all the hallmarks of Xiaomi electric scooters, including its IP54 certification, ensuring splash resistance for your rides in the rain.

Still Lightweight

Another small detail of importance is the folding stem system. Previously a simple lever, it now features a new safety mechanism requiring a trigger to be activated in either direction. This offers additional security to prevent the scooter from folding mid-ride, but it also makes folding slightly more complicated, especially since the lever is quite sturdy and requires some force to activate the stem movement.

This feature is both an advantage and a disadvantage. The hook mechanism remains simple and efficient: a hook on the mudguard slips into a link near the handlebars, allowing the scooter to fold and be lifted in one smooth motion.

Compared to the Mi 1S, the Mi Scooter 3 is slightly heavier, going from 12.5 to 13.2 kg. However, it is still easily transportable and did not bother me when climbing four flights of stairs, especially since its compact size makes it simple to fit in a car trunk or a small apartment corner. It would be nice if the handlebars could fold as well, but Xiaomi doesn’t seem to have that in mind yet.

When outdoors, however, you’ll need to keep it close to you, as the only secure spot for a lock is the rear wheel.

A Small Deck, Well-Positioned Handlebars

As for the deck, there’s nothing new either. Expect a width of 14.5 cm and a length of 56.5 cm, with 46 cm of actual usable space. This is the trade-off for a compact scooter: to ride comfortably, you’ll need to position your feet at right angles or place one on the mudguard, which is fixed and does not act as a mechanical brake.

Handlebars and Controls

The handlebars are positioned 110 cm from the ground and 95 cm from the deck, making the Mi Scooter 3 accessible to everyone. At my height of 1.75 meters, I found the handlebars correctly positioned, although a bit low after testing the Himo L2. An adjustable height system would be a plus. Nevertheless, I quickly got used to it, and it didn’t bother me.

The same textured rubber grips are used, ideal for preventing slipping even with wet hands and generally quite comfortable, even if you don’t necessarily want to hold them for hours.

With the handlebars in hand, you’ll find the rear disc brake on the left handle, along with the bell and accelerator on the right handle. The layout is very standard, with a well-adjusted accelerator to avoid uncomfortable positions on long distances. However, the bell is a bit far away, and you need to stretch your thumb to reach it.

An Unchanged Display

In terms of controls, nothing has changed. The stem is connected to the handlebars by a display and a single multi-function button. A short press turns on the headlight – very bright and well-angled to illuminate the road and possible obstacles – while a long press turns off the scooter, and a double-tap switches between driving modes, even while on the move.

The display shows the bare minimum: real-time speed, battery status indicated by a 5-segment gauge, and driving mode (pedestrian, D, or S). Indicator lights also show if the scooter is locked, in Bluetooth pairing, or suffering from a technical issue. Hopefully, you won’t see the latter symbol too often.

We would have appreciated a small clock and a more precise battery or distance-traveled indicator, but these are criticisms we make in each of our scooter reviews.

Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3: A Responsive Ride

While the Mi Scooter 3 reuses the design of the 1S, it primarily adopts the Pro 2’s motor. The nominal power increases from 250 to 300 W (and maximum power from 500 to 600 W). In terms of top speed, you won’t notice the difference, as French legislation requires a motor speed limit of 25 km/h, but the increased power is noticeable in acceleration and uphill climbs.

Climbing Ability

According to Xiaomi, the Mi Scooter 3 can climb slopes up to 16%. On such steep roads, don’t expect to maintain 25 km/h, but it’s quite impressive to hold 10 km/h on a steep section of Ménilmontant Street (14%). For other slopes, the Mi Scooter 3 barely flinches and easily maintains speeds above 23 km/h.

Acceleration and Performance

The most enjoyable aspect of the Mi Scooter 3 is its acceleration. Without being abrupt, it allows you to quickly reach the maximum allowed speed, which is particularly effective for getting out of congested intersections, getting ahead at green lights, or overtaking multiple cyclists at once. I was able to overtake five cyclists in just a few meters during one of my trips before merging back.

Stability, but Still No Shock Absorbers

Light and medium-sized, the Mi Scooter 3 offers excellent maneuverability and overall driving stability. You can easily weave between cars at red lights or slalom at walking pace, and even let go of one hand while keeping the scooter on course without any effort. This is handy if you need to scratch your nose or point in the direction you want to turn since Xiaomi does not offer standard turn signals on its models.

Although very enjoyable to ride, the Mi Scooter 3 suffers from a problem seen in previous generations and many other competing scooters: its small 8.5-inch pneumatic tires alone are not enough to absorb road shocks. In the absence of shock absorbers, cobblestone roads may shake you quite a bit. It’s far from the comfort of heavier scooters.

Braking and Road Holding: Reassuring

Regarding safety and road holding, Xiaomi has improved its design since the first M365 in 2017. The braking system consists of an adjustable regenerative brake and a rear disc brake. It is both progressive on the lever’s travel and biting when pressed to the maximum.

This is precisely the behavior you’d expect from a personal transportation device: it doesn’t send you flying over the handlebars when you want to stop gently but can react quickly in case of emergency to avoid an accident.

It’s worth noting that the road holding is good, and even in case of emergency braking, the Mi Scooter 3 doesn’t skid too much on dry roads. On wet roads, we always advise reducing your speed to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3: Same Battery, (Almost) Increased Range

Regarding the battery, Xiaomi has kept the same NE1003-H accumulator as on the Mi Scooter 1S with a capacity of 7650 mAh for 275 Wh. Slightly heavier and more powerful, it should logically offer a lower range. Yet, Xiaomi still claims 30 km, just like last year.

However, this figure is entirely biased since it’s obtained under very specific conditions that are hard to reproduce: with a 75 kg load at 25°C, no wind, on a flat road, and especially at 15 km/h.

In practice, if you enjoy your scooter in sport mode, it will be tough to reach the 30 km range on a single charge. However, the Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3 proves to be more enduring than the model it replaces. With the 1S, I recorded an average trip of 20 km before running out of battery.

Here, it’s between 20 and 22 km on the same route. The 20 km was achieved on the charge where I performed my uphill tests on Ménilmontant Street.

Battery Life and Charging

Don’t expect a significant increase in battery life. Also, since the battery indicator is not very precise, it’s advisable to remember your trips and/or always carry the charger with you.

For charging, there’s no change either. It still takes around 5.5 hours to charge from 0 to 100%. The charging port is located on the lower part of the deck, covered with a rubber cap to prevent it from getting wet when riding through puddles.

Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3: Still an Imperfect App

Regarding the app, Xiaomi hasn’t made any improvements. The same Xiaomi Home app from last year is available on Google Play Store or the App Store. In general, the app allows you to adjust some scooter settings, such as speed control, always-on rear light, and regenerative braking strength.

You’ll also find useful information, such as the total mileage of your Mi Scooter 3, its serial number, battery status, percentage, and estimated mileage.

Unfortunately, the flaws haven’t been fixed. It’s still necessary to link your scooter to a room in your house (which is odd but only needed once), and you can’t access your information when the scooter is off, as the app doesn’t save the latest data for consultation.

Wondering if your scooter has enough juice for your daily commute tomorrow? You won’t know without getting up from your couch. Too bad.

Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3: Price and Availability

The Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3 is available at a recommended price of 399 on Xiaomi’s website and various retailers like Walmart.

It completely replaces the Mi Scooter 1S at this price point. It might even overshadow the Xiaomi Mi Scooter Electric Pro 2, which only offers 5 km of additional real autonomy.

Editor’s Verdict

The Mi Scooter 3 aims to replace the 1S but can easily overshadow the Pro 2 as well. Powerful, maneuverable, enjoyable to ride, and well-equipped for safety, it has all the necessary features for a device you’ll take on the road among bikes, cars, buses, and trucks. It’s a clear, welcome improvement, making it one of the most balanced electric scooters on the market.

With a range of just over 20 km, it remains somewhat limited for daily commutes and often requires recharging. This is its only remaining drawback compared to the Mi Pro 2 (which offers an additional 10 km of range for over a kilogram and 50 extra). In return, it’s slightly lighter, more easily maneuverable in tight spaces, and a bit cheaper.

Mechanically, Xiaomi has found the right balance for a daily or leisure electric scooter. However, the software aspect, both on the smartphone and the scooter’s screen, could be improved.

Pros of the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 3

  • Excellent acceleration
  • Responsive brakes and good overall grip
  • Powerful and efficient headlight
  • Easy to store and transport

Cons of the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 3

  • No shock absorbers small wheels = average comfort
  • Basic app and interface
  • Range still somewhat limited

Different ways of making your Electric Scooter faster

To make things easier to comprehend and use, the methods for increasing the speed of your scooter are classified into three types:

Risk-Free methods

These methods are safe ways to get the most out of your scooter. They do not necessitate tampering with its internals, pose no danger of flaws, and will not invalidate your warranty.

They will, however, often only eliminate some of the impediments that prohibit your scooter from attaining the maximum indicated speed. If you want faster speeds, you’ll have to fiddle with your scooter’s internals and dive a little deeper. Before you do that, be sure you’ve examined all of the risk-free options and that you can get at least the maximum speed that you should be able to achieve without risking damaging some of the mechanical components.

Modifying methods

If you’re determined to speed up your scooter, you need first to understand what you’re getting yourself into.

All of the modifications have one goal in mind: to allow you to travel faster than the scooter manufacturer intended. If you want to get the most out of your performance, you must first remove the speed limiters.

If you want to go any farther, you’ll need to perform some more battery optimizations, such as updating the battery to a more powerful model, adding a second battery, or both.

All of these procedures have the potential to void your warranty and harm your scooter.

Advanced methods

There are a few more mechanical ways to increase the power of your scooter. They also include opening up your scooter and making significant adjustments to its internals, so they should only be used as a last option.

Make sure your scooter is fully unlocked and you are in the fastest mode (risk-free)

If your scooter has been unusually sluggish from the start, you are most certainly dealing with one of these problems.

Some scooters start in a locked mode, usually to comply with local scooter rules and regulations.

Typically, you must link the scooter to the smartphone app and create a profile there. You should then be able to access the top speeds.

In addition, practically every Xiaomi electric scooter includes multiple driving modes, generally three. Make sure your scooter is on the quickest setting if you want to travel the fastest. Modern scooters typically swap modes by double or triple pressing the power button on the screen.

Examine the manual or a tutorial for your specific Xiaomi electric scooter model. Typically, the directions are quite simple to follow.

Charge your battery to 100% (risk-free)

Your speed will be heavily influenced by your battery.

While the key elements will be the power of the motor and the power of the battery, the battery level frequently plays an essential impact as well.

A battery’s voltage decreases as its charge decreases, and this decrease in voltage immediately causes a decrease in performance. This applies to both lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries, but notably to the latter.

Fortunately, most current scooters, particularly Xiaomi Electric Scooters use lithium-ion batteries, so this will not be as noticeable as it would be with scooters from 10 years ago, for example.

When the battery is nearly depleted, many scooters enter power-saving mode. To conserve energy, they frequently limit performance and the maximum speed at which you may go.

Renew your battery (risk-free)

If you’ve owned your scooter for a long time, you’ve definitely noticed that the battery capacity has decreased.

Even modern batteries incur wear and tear with each charging cycle, so this is unavoidable. Estimates vary, but your battery will wear out anywhere from 20% to 50% after 1000 charges.

Some folks will reach that milestone in less than two years. The typical scooter’s battery life is between two and three years.

Remove the speed limit (modifying)

There are two methods for removing the speed limit.

  • One method is to install modified firmware.
  • The alternative option is to physically remove the speed limiter.

Because it does not need to physically modify your scooter, installing custom firmware is considerably preferable to the physical technique. Firmware for the most popular models is quite well-tested, and there are fewer things that can go wrong.

Clean the motor (advanced)

I would not recommend doing this yourself since you risk harming the scooter’s mechanics and voiding your warranty in the process.

However, it is likely that dirt, dust, oil, or other matter is preventing the engine from running smoothly.

If your scooter’s speed is reduced, take it to a scooter repair or your manufacturer. They will do diagnostics on it and may clean the engine for you.

Turn off the lights and other components that drain the battery (risk-free)

If you want the battery to be used for only running performance, then you should make sure other auxiliary functions are used to a minimum.

In addition to numerous internet reviews and Комментарии и мнения владельцев that support it, I have personally observed this. The maximum speed will be reduced for several models when the lights are turned on. This is true even for automobiles, as lights are one of the major battery eaters, and automobiles often have larger batteries.

Now a word of caution: security must come first! Never switch off your lights while driving at night, especially in poorly lighted regions. Risking your safety for a few extra kilometers per hour is not worthwhile.

Make sure your scooter’s lights are off during the day, or possibly turned off if you’re traveling in an area with a lot of light, to achieve maximum speed.

The other resources in your scooter that need energy are the same.

Reduce the load and improve Xiaomi Scooter Faster (risk-free)

The heavier your scooter the slower it will go. Your maximum speed should increase if you shed extra pounds.

Another word of caution: never sacrifice your safety by removing your helmet or other protective gear. Again, not worth it, and it won’t accomplish much.

However, if you plan your trips, you can lessen part of the load. I’ve observed that if I’m dragging fully loaded grocery bags while wearing an 8 kg backpack, I can’t reach my Xiaomi M365 Pro’s all-time highs.

Additionally, I saw that my scooter operated less efficiently when I was heavier. Even though the rides were less stable, they traveled more slowly, and the battery ran out sooner. As a point of comparison, I was around 210 lbs (95 kg), and when I got down to 181 lbs (82 kg), it seemed like my scooter had been revived.

Lastly, you can swap out some components with lighter ones. It will be possible to reduce weight by removing some metal components and replacing them with plastic ones, but I wouldn’t recommend it because it could compromise the scooter’s stability, general robustness, and structural integrity.

Clean the wheels to make Xiaomi Scooter Faster (risk-free)

Once, even with a full battery and in the Sport mode, my scooter struggled to exceed 17 to 18 km/h (the fastest one).

I wondered for a while before I began troubleshooting.

After examining it for a while, I discovered a chewing gum stick that had been solid and was embedded between the rear wheel and the fender along with little pieces of wood, mud, and leaves.

My scooter could once more easily attain its top speed when I removed it!

Typically, if something becomes stuck in the wheels, it will make an odd noise that will draw your attention.

But if your speed suddenly decreases, check to see whether anything is lodged in your wheels and whether they are clean.

Electrically Reset Xiaomi Scooter Firmware

If your Xiaomi scooter won’t climb hills, a firmware crash in the software could be at blame. In fact, the firmware is set up to protect the battery when it detects a problem (overvoltage or an excessive requirement such as climbing a hill).

Then, an electrical reset will be required in the manner described below in order to enable the potential software bug to be removed.

  • Turn off the Xiaomi scooter.
  • By removing the screws on the footrest’s underside, you can get rid of the battery cover.
  • Cut off the battery’s power (large red and black wires to control board)
  • For roughly 30 seconds, connect the scooter to the charger (do not touch anything while charging)
  • Connect the battery power after unplugging the charger.

Reassemble the cover before attempting to use the vehicle. The scooter will either need to be repaired or attempted to be unclamped if you continue to observe a loss of power from it.

Should you increase your scooter speed?

As we’ve seen, there are a few drawbacks to trying to raise the speed limit on your scooter.

It is probable that there are legal restrictions in your area, and you should constantly keep this in mind.

Aside from that, there are certain safety concerns. Some scooters have quite strong specifications, and you should be at least slightly skilled to handle their top speeds. Tremendous speed comes with great responsibility!

Finally, if you choose the riskier techniques, you run the danger of destroying your scooter. As previously said, the firms do not like it when you tinker with their products and will invalidate your warranty if you change the scooter in any significant way. That is, you may wind up with a damaged scooter that is not covered by a warranty.

Final Verdict

There’s no reason to doubt that the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooters are among the best electric scooters for commuters on the market right now. If you have the money, you’re receiving a decent product backed by a respectable firm.

On the other hand, choose non-intrusive, risk-free approaches initially, then only customize if that isn’t adequate. Avoid the most sophisticated adjustments; they are unlikely to be worth the effort. If you really want a fast scooter, you should look at fast scooters that are built for high speeds right out of the box.

The electric scooter is especially good for roads since it always goes at the proper speed to keep up with traffic without making you feel like a little feeble impostor.

However, battery capacity feels a little low, particularly at charging speeds, so those with certain lifestyles may have difficulty keeping the scooter charged at all times.

New 2020 model: Xiaomi Scooter PRO 2 vs Xiaomi Scooter PRO

Xiaomi released a new version of their Pro Scooter: Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2. In this article I first want to give you an overview of the different Xiaomi Scooter models and point out the different version of Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2. Then I do a review what differs the Pro versions from the others.

Xiaomi released 3 new models, including the new Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 (the international name is: Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2).

The new Xiaomi Scooter lineup consists of 3 new models:

  • Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 – (Xiaomi Pro successor – often referred to as Xiaomi M365 Pro)
  • Xiaomi Scooter 1S – (Xiaomi M365 successor)
  • Xiaomi Scooter Lite – (Xiaomi M187 successor)

Versions of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2

Attention, different versions of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 are being sold: International Version, Chinese Version and German version. While International and Chinese Version are almost identical, the German Version differs from the others. Due to legal requirements e-scooters are only allowed to go up to 20 kph in Germany, so the German Version is limited to a max. speed of 20 kph! You can also easily spot the difference as the German version also has a second brake handle. All new verison of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 are euqipped with a fender that can hold a number plate, which is also required in some countries. The German version of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 is sold for 499 EUR (629 USD) at German retail stores – here are some photos:

Xiaomi Scooter lineup – Comparison Chart

Before going into detail about the new Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2, here is a spec comparison of the existing Xiaomi Electric Scooter lineup: Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 vs Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi Scooter 1S vs Xiaomi Scooter M365 vs Xiaomi Scooter Lite vs Xiaomi Scooter M187

One item that differs both Pro versions from the rest, is their size. The Xiaomi Pro Scooters not only have a more powerful motor, they also are a bit taller and have a longer footrest. Here’s a photo of my Xiaomi Scooter Pro and Xiaomi M365 where you can see the size difference:

Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 – Specs

So there is a new version of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2, but what’s the difference compared to the current Pro version? Spoiler alert: not much. It seems Pro 2 is an improved version of the existing model and some issues were fixed: wiring, cooling,… The only visible difference is the rear fender (which also caused problems with the Pro 1 model) and the international version of Pro 2 is using the fender designed for the German version that offers space to mount a number plate (see picture on the box above).

Xiaomi Pro 1 vs Pro 2 – Differences

Driving Modes / Display The differences between Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 and Pro 1 are hard to spot. A minor change are the driving modes. While Pro offers ECO mode with 15 km/h as slowest driving mode; Pro 2 features a Pedestrian mode with 5 km/h. The display shows a different symbol.

Lights Reflectors The headlight was upraded from a 1W LED to a 2W LED. The rear light also changed and the international version is now using the same fender as the German version holding a brighter rear light and a place to mount a number plate. Xiaomi Scooter Pro is also equipped with reflectors on all sides which is a requirement in many countries.

Review – Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions (Pro 2 / Pro) vs regular versions (1S / M365)?

In this review I want to point out the differences between the Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions (Pro 1 Pro 2) and the Standard versions (1S / M365). I’ll cover all different features of the Scooter and start with a spec comparison and then add my Комментарии и мнения владельцев from drifing them, which are labelled with this icon:


Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions are a bit taller compared to the regular versions M365 and 1S. The Pro versions are 1.5 kg heavier because of the larger battery that provide a further range. Below the footstep there’s a foldout stand to sturdy park your scooter. The footstep of the Pro versions is 5 cm longer and 1 cm wider than M365 / 1S allowing a more comfortable ride.

The differences between Xiaomi Pro and Xiaomi M365 seem small, but the impact for me was bigger than I expected. Having a little more space on the footrest makes it way more comfortable to ride. I enjoy a better position while driving Xiaomi Pro (my shoe size if that matters: US 10 / EU 44). Also the extra centimeters on the rod in height are noticeable and comfy. On the other hand you clearly notice the 1.5kg of Xiaomi Pro being heavier when you need to carry your scooter (e.g. when combining it with public transport). I prefer that the battery is stored under the footrest as it offers a better driving experience with its lower center of gravity. In contrast to Xiaomi the battery of the Ninebot ES versions is stored in the steerign rod.

Footrest of Xiaomi Scooter Pro (bottom) is a bit larger compared to Xiaomi M365


Xiaomi Scooter Pro 300W motor vs Xiaomi M365 250W motor

The front wheel of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 / Pro 1 holds a 300W (600W peak) motor which is a plus of 50 W compared to the 250W motor of Xiaomi M365 / 1S (550W peak). Max. speed is 25km/h which is the same as for the the non-Pro versions. The stronger motor also allows a steeper gradient which is stated 20% for the Pro versions.

The 50W extra power, or in other words 20% more power, make itself felt – clearly! You accelerate faster and reach the max. speed way quicker. The extra power becomes most noticeable when going uphill as you can achieve a higher constant speed compared to M365 / 1S. Overall I clearly have the feeling that Pro is more powerful – even more than I expected beforehand!


The built in battery of Xiaomi Pro Pro 2 offer a capacity of 474 Wh compared to the 280 Wh capacity of Xiaomi Scooter 1S M365. As mentioned the battery sits below the footstep of the scooter. Both Pro models should reach a range of 45km (compared to 30km for 1S / M365). Remark: Xiaomi states the tested range as follows: 75kg driver with fully charged scooter going constantly 15 km/h on a flat surface with no wind at 25°C temperature.

I wanted to upgrade from M365 since my drive to work is about 12km one way. With M365 I arrived at work with about 39% of the battery left. Towards the end of the ride I noticed a decrease in performance. It was not possible to do a roundtrip (24km) with full speed (25 km/h mode). For me the tested max. range with M365 was 18km with full speed (as long as possible) on an average road with some “normal” hills and stop go drive due to traffic lights. With Xiaomi Scooter Pro I can do the 24km roundtrip without a significant decrease in performance. There’s only a slight power loss after 20km when going uphill as it takes a bit longer to reach max. speed. I had no problems to reach 30km with the Pro version. Remark: The range depends on a lot of factors so it can vary a lot. Main factor is the weight of the driver and it is also influenced by the road condition if it is flat and if you are going at a constant speed.

Tires Brakes

Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi M365 – Brakes Tires

All Xiaomi Scooter models are fitted with tube air tires instead of solid rubber tires, e.g. found on Ninebot ES2. This offers advantages and disadvantages. I prefer tube air tires as they offer a smoother ride compared to the solid tires of Ninebot ES2 (which even has suspension). Of course they can deflate or puncture. All Xiaomi models are fitted with 8,5″ tires; recommended pressure is 50 psi (3.4 bar).

All Xiaomi Scooter models offer the same two separated brake systems: Integrated in the front wheel there is an eABS, regenerative anti-lock braking system. When you release the accelerator lever, the front wheel slowly brakes and the generated energy flows back into battery. Only the German verison of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 has a separate handle for this brake. Brake strength can be defined within the app. The back wheel holds a 120mm disk brake which is activated with the brake handle on the steering bar. In the picture above you can see that the brakes of Xiaomi Pro 1 and M365 are different. Some users reported that the disk brake used on Xiaomi M365 is not as firm and can bend. So the brake was upgraded on the Pro model which is now way firmer. This brake is also used on Pro 2 and well as on Xiaomi Scooter 1S.

I know many users dislike the air tube tires on the Xiaomi Scooters as you can get a flat tire. I once had a puncture and the tire is hard to change. But still I prefer the air tube tires. I compared the Xiaomi Scooter to Ninebot ES which uses solid tires and even has suspension on front and back wheel. Still the driving experience on Xiaomi is way better as the air tube tires offer a more comfortable and smoother ride. Since the air tube tires smoothen the ride on uneven roads very well I’m also not switching them to solid tires on my Xiaomi- Scooter.

Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions in a nutshell

Do I feel a difference riding a Pro version compared to the regular versions? Yes, a lot. Once you get used to the Pro version you don’t want to switch back. You get used to the faster acceleration and you clearly feel the stronger motor when going on hilly roads. The larger footrest is more comfortable.

Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions compared to regular versions:

Longer Range (increased battery capacity)

Better Acceleration (stronger motor)

Better Uphill Performance (stronger motor)

Comfier Driving Position (larger footrest)

Xiaomi Scooter 3

De Xiaomi Mi Scooter 3 is precies een jaar na de lancering van de populaire Xiaomi Pro 2 verschenen. Deze aanwinst in de Xiaomi collectie bouwt voort op de succesvolle Xiaomi M365-formule.

Met een gewicht van 13,2 kg is de Mi Scooter 3 een kilo lichter dan zijn voorganger. Daarnaast heeft dit model een kortere laadtijd. In slechts 5,5 uur is een lege accu volledig opgeladen. De maximale snelheid blijft met 25 km/h ongewijzigd ten opzichte van eerdere modellen.

Plus- en minpunten

PluspuntenMinpuntenIn 5,5 uur een volledig opgeladen batterij-Geen verbeterde actieradius t.o.v. de Xiaomi Pro 2Actieradius van 30 kilometerLichtgewicht: weegt slechts 13,2 kg

Nieuw design

Een eerste blik op de Mi Electric Scooter 3 laat meteen wat opvallende kenmerken zien. Het model is qua design iets veranderd, waarbij oranje accessoires zijn vervangen door een stijlvolle blauwe kleur.

Na de Xiaomi M365 heeft het Chinese bedrijf geen e-step meer uitgebracht in meerdere kleurvarianten. Hier brengt de Mi 3 weer verandering in. Naast de zwarte versie met blauwe tinten is er een wit-grijs design met Xiaomi-oranje details.

Topsnelheid en actieradius

De Xiaomi Scooter 3 beschikt over een 275Wh batterij die goed is voor een bereik van 30 km. Net als zijn voorgangers haal je met het nieuwe model een topsnelheid van 25 km/h. Deze snelheid is tevens in lijn met het snelheidslimiet voor e-steps in Nederland en België.

  • Voetgangermodus: voor gebruik in drukke gebieden (tot 15 km/h);
  • Standaardmodus: voor dagelijks gebruik (tot 20 km/h);
  • Sportmodus: voor wanneer je net wat sneller moet gaan (tot 25 km/h).

De elektromotor heeft een piekvermogen van 600W. Hiermee kan de step een maximale hellingsgraad van 16 ° aan.

Verbeterde batterij

De batterij weegt in totaal 1,6 kg. Xiaomi verklaart dat de batterij tot 500 oplaadcycli minimaal 70% van de oorspronkelijke capaciteit behoudt.

Onder de innovaties heeft Xiaomi ook een nieuwe ‘Slaap’-modus toegevoegd. Deze modus stelt de step in staat om energie in de batterij op te slaan wanneer deze niet in gebruik is en minder dan 30% vol is. Hiermee wordt de volledige capaciteit in de accu behouden voor een periode van 15 dagen.
