Xiaomi M365 Pro

A sequel of Xiaomi M365 that is considered to be one of the world’s most cherished e-scooters, the Xiaomi M365 Pro brings its A-game with a ton of improvements and new features that make your riding experience worthwhile. This solid and robust electric scooter boasts an expanded display, an enormous battery, an appealing design and a powerful motor. The added features may come at an extra price but overall, the Xiaomi M365 pro gives you incredible value.

Xiaomi M365 Pro – The Lowdown

Released to the market in 2019 as an alternative to the original M365, the Xiaomi M365 Pro is a cost-effective machine that packs a bountiful array of exciting features. Atop the newly upgraded features—including the robust motor, crystal-clear display, powerful battery, and exquisite design—this electric scooter boasts 8.5-inch air-filled pneumatic tyres that promise a smooth and comfortable ride.

It features an extended deck (extra 50MM) that allows you to move your feet with more ease. It also comes with a sturdy folding mechanism, an effective dual-braking system, a durable, lightweight frame, and a comfortable thumb throttle.

While the Xiaomi M365 Pro’s added weight contributes to its stability, it also takes a toll on riders’ muscles if they need to carry it for longer distances. However, if you’re using it for short commutes (e.g. going to and from the train station), then it will diligently serve its purpose.

The original Xiaomi M365 was one of the worlds most popular scooters as of 2020 and was also known under “Mi Electric Scooter” or “Mijia” brand. The M365 gained popularity because it offered a cheap way of getting around in style offering plenty of value for money. Rideable by almost anyone and great for nipping around, the Xiaomi has cemented itself firmly in the scooter marketplace – in fact it’s become so popular even BIRD Scooters use them as part of their rental scheme.

Xiaomi M365 Pro Review Video

Check out the following Xiaomi M365 Pro review video for more details.In summary, it’s a powerful, stable and dependable beast with one of the most extended ranges on the market and an outstanding foldable design

Xiaomi M365 Pro Pros

A powerful battery with a fantastic range Three riding modes for a fabulous cruising experience Comprehensive central display to check your speed, battery level and mode A robust motor that supplies extra oomph for uphill riding Grippy, air-filled pneumatic tyres for smooth and comfortable rides Longer stem and handlebars for taller and broader riders

Xiaomi M365 Pro Cons

Control button is hard to reach if you have small hands Takes a long time to charge Not ideal for off-road action Lacks suspension on both wheels Some users have reported screws in the folding mechanisms coming loose

Xiaomi M365 Pro Summary

Although the Xiaomi M365 Pro is over one metre tall and weighs 14kg (31.3 lbs), you’ll be surprised at how fast it is compared to e-scooters of this size and weight. In terms of performance, this mini vehicle boasts several outstanding features. The 8.5-inch pressure-filled tyres are made of a soft compound that offers unmatched grip, even during wet conditions. It also comes with a large battery that powers the 300W motor to deliver a top speed of 15.5 mph (25 km/h) and comfortably climb hills with gradients of up to 20%. With the extended battery, riders can expect to achieve as much as 60-70% more range over the standard Xiaomi M365 – basically they’ve crammed a more lithium dense battery pack into the deck – which likely means they’ve also made better use of the extended deck space.

This electric scooter also boasts outstanding safety features. For starters, it comes with confidence-inspiring dual brakes that allow you to steadily come to a halt, even on short distances. It also features a massive deck that supplies enough space for riders to move their feet comfortably while in transit. If you enjoy after-dark escapades, M365 Pro features an LED headlight to illuminate your path and a tail light to warn other motorists of your presence.

You will love this machine’s folding design that can be folded and carried by the handlebars. Even, due to its hefty 31.3 pounds (14 kg) and the extra length, it might not be the best one for teenagers and smaller riders.

Another outstanding feature of the Xiaomi M365 Pro is its dashboard, which boasts a well-lit display that allows riders to check the speed, battery level and mode. The stem-mounted button can power the scooter, change riding modes and turn the lights on/off.With a hard-to-beat price, top-class performance, and a host of innovative features, the Xiaomi M365 Pro is the ideal commuting solution for first timers and seasoned riders alike.

Performance Overview

Like its predecessor, the M365 Pro doesn’t compromise on performance. Its 8.5-inch air-filled tyres are large enough to offer the required stability and are solid enough to supply a smooth roll. Disappointingly though, this scooter doesn’t have any suspension which means you will want to keep off rough terrains and bumpy roads. It can be challenging to keep the throttle pushed down—or even to hold the scooter with one arm – on uneven terrains.

The 300W motor supplies enough power to yield a top speed of 15.5 mph. It also enables riders to climb small hills effortlessly, while keeping a decent pace (depending on their weight and other conditions). For those who want to release the throttle and relax a little bit when riding for long distances, you can activate cruise control with a mere push of a button.

Additionally, you’ll never have to worry about stopping when cruising on the M365 Pro. It comes with a dual-braking system that delivers superb braking performance, enhanced heat management and smooth and comfortable rides. Other features that contribute to fantastic performance include the LED display that allows you to check your speed, mode and battery charge. Its bright front and rear lights enhance visibility for those who enjoy riding after the sun goes down.

The performance class of the Xiaomi M365 Pro is entry level – meaning it’s a scooter that can be ridden by most age groups. The power delivery is smooth and the ride is not intimidating, the scooter is light, easy to handle and because of those reasons, is a first choice for many entry level scooter riders looking to get their first electric scooter.

Don’t expect bursts of power – this is an entry level scooter with a torque output of around 16nm (newton meters) or 12 lbf-ft). But do expect something that’s super easy to ride and really smooth on acceleration.

Top Speed Acceleration

Although we expected this scooter to offer more in terms of speed, it still has the same 15.5 mph (25 km/h) of its predecessor. Even so, this is enough for all your suburban commutes. Riders seeking more thrill and adrenaline rush should probably look elsewhere.

What we found impressive on this aspect is that Xiaomi M365 Pro features an effective launch that rises to 15.5 mph (25 km/h) in just six seconds. However, riders must kick-push the scooter manually for no less than 2 mph before engaging the throttle. It also comes with three ride modes that allow cruising at various speeds.

The acceleration overall is sufficient for most people, however anyone who’s ridden a scooter with 1000w will likely find the M365 Pro lacklustre.

The original and M365 Pro have gained popularity amongst the “firmware” hacking community. The top speed of the scooter can be increased by a firmware hack that will override a limiter in the controller – some riders have reported speeds of 20-25 mph (32 – 40 km/h) depending on the hack implemented.

Be warned – ANY firmware hack will immediately invalidate the Xiaomi M365 Pros warranty.

We have found a video from Digs Moto which shows an M365 PRO apparently doing 31 mph (50 km/h) however as one Youtuber pointed out, the Xiaomi’s built-in speedometer isn’t overly accurate – but needless to say this looks a lot quicker than the quoted 15 – 18 mph (24 – 29 km/h).

Battery Life Range

One of the highlights of the Xiaomi M365 Pro is its large and powerful battery. The 36V 12800mAh lithium-ion battery is solid enough to power a 300W motor and deliver a fantastic range of 27 miles. When the scooter’s charge is drained to 10%, it automatically lowers the maximum speed. The only drawback is that it requires nine hours to charge fully.

The 365 Pro’s average battery consumption works out to around 1.1kWh per 62 miles (99 km) ridden – so that works out at just over 2 full battery charges.

The Xiaomi M365 Pro’s battery offers up a total of 460Wh which is VERY impressive for such a small scooter, to put it into perspective a Dualtron Thunder which is SUBSTANTIALLY more powerful offers up 2100wh – now consider the price difference, the M365 is 1/8th the price but has 1/4 of the equivalent battery capacity.

Motor Configuration

The Xiaomi M365 Pro comes with a robust 300W motor that produces a top speed of 15.5 mph (25 km/h). Although this speed is enough to make you feel like you’re rushing somewhere, it’s not fast enough to give you an adrenaline rush. The scooter comes with three ride modes for your riding convenience. These include the Eco Mode, Drive Mode, and Sports Mode, with top speeds of 9.3 mph (15 km/h), 12.4 mph (20 km/h) and 15.5 mph (25 km/h), respectively.

Construction Build Quality

Xiaomi’s reputation for building top-quality electric scooters is unrivalled, and the M365 Pro is no exception. All its parts scream quality, from the deck and stem to the handlebars and brakes. This bulky beast comes with a solid and sturdy aluminium-alloy frame that anchors all the other components. It has a matte black finish with splashes of red on the front wheel and brake-cable housing. Everything on this mini vehicle feels compact and robust.

Suspension

The Xiaomi M365 Pro does not feature independent suspension however there are third party suspension options including the MONORIM V3 suspension kit for Xiaomi M365.

Ride Quality

For an entry-level scooter, the Xiaomi M365 Pro delivers a commendable riding experience. Its excellent combination of weight, power, geometry, and tyres creates a fantastic ride quality. Although the pressure-filled tyres don’t have an integrated suspension, they supply an unmatched surface grip and allow you to control the machine effortlessly.

The extended deck offers comfortable foot space for individuals of all weights and heights, while the long handlebars offer enough latching space for adults of all sizes. However, we advise keeping off rough terrains when riding this scooter due to the constant vibrations.

Braking

The M365 Pro comes with a dual-brake system that consists of rear and front brakes – linked and controlled by a single lever. The 120 mm rear disc brake boasts nicely routed cables that allow smooth activation. With this braking system, you can bring the scooter to a halt in three seconds when cruising at full speed. There is also a regenerative brake, whose power can be adjusted through the provided Bluetooth-enabled app.

Portability

Collapsing the Xiaomi M365 Pro takes just a couple of seconds, given its proprietary, tried-and-tested folding mechanism. The machine is held in the folded position by the bell, which latches onto the fender. But even with this innovative design, the scooter is a little bulky, weighing up to 31.3 pounds (14 kg). You certainly wouldn’t want to carry it for extended distance or up several flights of stairs.

Lights

The 1.1W LED headlight positioned between the handlebars helps to light up your way when darkness finds you outside. However, it doesn’t produce enough light, meaning you may need additional light if you often drive after the sunset. The Xiaomi M365 Pro scooter also comes with a taillight that is always on; this helps to signal other motorists. The backlight flashes when the brake is engaged which indicates that the mini vehicle is slowing down.

Tyres

The Xiaomi M365 Pro comes with the same 8.5-inch air-filled pneumatic tyres as the previous version. These tyres have a reputation of offering a smooth and decent ride when traversing on level grounds, and they absorb shocks from bumps well. However, this scooter lacks an integrated suspension, so if you hit large potholes or try to tackle cobblestones, you’ll most likely feel the vibrations.

Deck

You will never have to worry about foot space with the Xiaomi M365 Pro. This adult electric scooter boasts a 45 x 15 cm deck. The deck is finished with a rubber coating and is covered in nubs to increase traction and provide more stability. For an entry-level scooter, the deck size is amazing. Another fantastic upgrade is the magnetized rubber cover which encloses the charging port on the front corner of the deck.

Controls Display

Like any other scooter, the Xiaomi M365 Pro electric scooter’s controls are positioned between the handlebars. You can find the throttle on the right handlebar, the brakes on the left, and the glossy display and bell in the centre. Riders can view several details on the LED dashboard, including battery level, speed and riding mode.

Below the display is a multifunctional button that you can use to power the scooter on/off, change riding modes, and switch the lights on/off.

With such a well-rounded and straightforward control system, anyone can understand why this Xiaomi product is so popular in the UK.

Water Resistance

This electric scooter by Xiaomi is rated IP54 for water resistance. What this means is it won’t give you any trouble when trying to get home on a rainy day. However, if you decide to cascade through puddles, the IP54 rating won’t help you and you may end up destroying the electrical parts.

Reliability, Warranty Customer Support

Featuring a plethora of top-tier features, a magnificent design, and backing from one of the most reputable e-scooter companies in the world, the Xiaomi M365 Pro is a mini-vehicle you can rely on.

Xiaomi allows new riders to rest easy once they buy this scooter by offering a one-year warranty on components and normal wear-and-tear. The brand is also famed for its dependable and responsive customer support. Most users say they got helped within 1-2 days which is quite impressive.

Maintenance

Due to the constant folding and unfolding, the moving components get loose over time. Riders should check for loose nuts and screws and tighten them after some time. Since this scooter comes with air-filled tyres, you must check the tyre pressure and fill them if it’s running low. Finally, keeping your mini vehicle free from dirt will ensure that it serves you for long.

Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 3 in review: Proven e-scooter with two points of criticism

Not a marathon man. From the Xiaomi M365 to the Mi Electric Scooter 1s, Xiaomi’s entry-level models were especially popular. Those who do not want to spend 750 Euros for an e-scooter will end up with the Mi Electric Scooter 3, among others. It is lighter than the Pro model but has a shorter range. Whether this is a serious issue or not is discussed in our detailed review.

Christian Hintze. ✓ Anton Avdyushkin (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), Published 02/05/2023

We have just received Xiaomi’s top model, the Electric Scooter 4 Pro, and now we’ll take a look at the Electric Scooter 3, a slimmed-down but lighter version. It has smaller tires, a weaker motor, and a smaller battery, but weighs only 13 kg instead of 17 kg. A road permit for Germany is included.

For about 550 euros and the rather low range, the model belongs to the upper entry-level class or lower mid-range and is aimed at customers who have short distances to cover.

Technical data. ABS and up to 600 W front wheel drive

In Germany, of course, every scooter with a road permit officially only goes 20 km/h. However, with 300 instead of 350 W, the motor is somewhat smaller than in the top model and thus officially only manages a gradient of 14 instead of 20 percent. The biggest difference, however, is the range: Xiaomi states that the scooter has a range of 30 km. We have checked this information further down.

Unboxing Assembly. Quick setup

The assembly is quick and unproblematic. Only the handlebar has to be attached and secured with four screws, a suitable tool is included.

That’s it, then the e-scooter can be connected to the charger, which indicates the charging process with a red LED and its completion with a green LED.

Unfortunately, the battery is not removable, so the scooter always has to be carried indoors, which is not too problematic considering the comparatively low weight.

For carrying, the scooter can of course be folded. The hook of the bell also serves as a locking hook for the clamping mechanism. So that the scooter does not fold up while driving, a lever must also be unfolded when folding.

Structure, equipment and operation. App compulsion and data collection mania

In addition to the charger and the necessary tools for pre-assembly, a spare tire and a valve attachment extension for more convenient inflation of the tires are still in the package as accessories.

The scooter itself is mainly made of dark gray metal, and the tread is additionally rubberized. Its relatively low weight of around 13 kg is pleasant. Thus, when folded, it can be carried into the apartment more easily than some competitor models.

The workmanship and stability seem very high quality, gaps or unclean glued joints are virtually not noticeable and even the handlebar rod has no play for wobbles. The handlebar is not height-adjustable.

In our model, the color dark gray dominates, and the design is somewhat loosened up by blue cables and the blue brake. Optionally, there is a white version with orange color accents.

In the center is the elongated display, which is uniform and not divided into zones. It is operated by just one button. Here you can switch on and off, switch between the three driving modes (push, normal/D, sport/S) by pressing twice and activate the lights by pressing once.

In addition to the current speed, the display also shows the light status, driving mode, any errors, Bluetooth connection status, and battery charge level in the form of 5 bars. For the mileage, you have to use the app again. However, there is no total mileage even there.

The motor lock is supposed to provide more safety, which means the scooter can only be pushed with strong resistance, and the scooter then beeps and flashes. However, the beeping is not particularly loud, at least outdoors. The function can only be accessed via the app.

Lighting equipment

The Xiaomi scooter does not have turn signals and driving with one hand is prohibited according to the intro video and is also not recommended due to the very wobbly handlebar. How are you supposed to indicate a change in direction?

The white front light illuminates the way in front of you at a practical distance well. At the rear, there is a red stand and brake light, which also serves as a reflector.

Additional reflectors are located in the front and as yellow reflector strips on the left and right sides of the two wheels.

App. Guess this is where it beeps, Xiaomi?

After the pleasantly short setup, you, unfortunately, cannot start driving without problems yet. Xiaomi forces its customers to install the Mi Home app. Otherwise, the e-scooter beeps continuously and is limited to 10 km/h. an absolute no-go!

The app is installed quickly, but you have to create a Mi account first. The manufacturer states that it stores various data like name, e-mail, address, means of payment, etc., and also passes them on to subsidiaries, including servers in China. At least no data is supposedly transmitted to other third parties.

In addition, the app forces the user to share the location and, best of all, the Wi-Fi connection for the initial setup in order to search for and add new devices. The connection to the Scooter 3 is made via Bluetooth.

The app will not find the scooter without the location approval. If you disclose everything, the connection via Bluetooth works quite quickly. Then you are forced to watch a safety video about driving the scooter to the end, only then the previously grayed out Next button becomes active and you can finally activate the vehicle. Only then does the annoying and continuous beeping of the scooter stop and you are allowed to drive more than 10 km/h. The author of this review has never encountered such a nuisance!

It would also be possible to do without the app because, after the forced initial setup (or rather activation), the scooter also runs without an app connection. The app does not really offer many functions anyway, only the recuperation behavior (in 3 steps) and possibly the engine lock are of greater use. There is no total mileage.

Driving performance and comfort. Without suspension, but lightweight

The test route of about 10 km led over asphalt roads, Berlin bike paths, and parks. There were hardly any differences in altitude, but there was some wind at an outdoor temperature of 7. 10 °C due to the season. The rider’s gross weight was 72.6 kg.

The Mi Scooter 3 has three driving modes. Only in the highest mode S you can reach 20 km/h, in mode D you are limited to a maximum of 15 km/h, mode I is only for pushing.

To start up, the Scooter 3 must be kicked off and the throttle lever pressed immediately. If you press it too early, nothing happens.

The maximum speed is maintained quite well under normal conditions, the entry-level scooter also copes quite well with smaller inclines or headwinds, but only with a full battery (see below).

By the way, you have to keep the rubberized thumb throttle pressed the whole time; unfortunately, there is no cruise control like in the Coozy. The turning circle is quite large at 2.2 m, but the lightweight scooter still makes a maneuverable impression.

One point of criticism is that the e-scooter does not have a suspension. On uneven pavement, you feel every bump because the pneumatic tires only cushion to a limited extent, especially since they are a bit smaller than in the Pro model, the Coozy, or the Niu KQi3.

Stupidly, the app made trouble again, and immediately after the 10-km ride simply showed that the scooter has not been moved for over 10 days and the battery is therefore put into sleep mode. aha, 10 days not moved. we quickly cut the Bluetooth connection to not have to push the last meters home.

Acceleration and braking

In S mode, the scooter gets off to a decent start, and acceleration is at least sufficient. The top speed of 20 km/h is reached in about 5 seconds after the kick start. In 3 seconds you are at 15 km/h. The Pro model accelerates a bit faster (- 1.5 s), especially from 5 to 20 km/h, due to its somewhat stronger engine. When accelerating, the Scooter 3 is on par with the Eleglide Coozy.

The Scooter 3 overcomes inclines very much depending on the current battery level. If the battery is full, you can almost climb bridges at full speed, but if only 2 of 5 bars are missing, the performance already decreases.

xiaomi, m365, parts, accessories, electric, scooter

In terms of braking, our test model is on par with the Pro model and can at least beat the competitor from Eleglide, whose braking distances are significantly longer. The Mi-Scooter only has one brake lever, but in addition to the mechanical rear disc brake, electronic ABS intervenes on the motorized front wheel. When braking from 20 km/h, the roll is just over 3 meters. Only the Niu KQi3 Max is clearly better.

Battery and charging. Ends earlier than expected, reduced performance

According to the manufacturer, the 275 Wh battery should be enough for about 30 km. In 20 km/h mode, we managed 20 km at best, rather less. Of course, our wintry test conditions have a rather unfavorable effect. But even 20 km are still very optimistic and rather calculated for the summer.

After all, the driving performance is steadily reduced and the battery display could also be optimized. The e-scooter only accelerates to the maximum at full battery. The scooter already needs more time to reach 20 km/h with only three out of 5 battery bars in the display and even acts noticeably less powerful on slight climbs.

At some point, a bar in the display starts to flash until it disappears. With three bars, the engine power drops; with two bars, the scooter can still drive 15 km/h with barely any effort. If the penultimate bar also disappears, you still get to 9 km/h before you stop completely without the last bar even blinking.

My 10-km tour caused the battery life to shrink from 75 to 25 percent. The 50 percent could therefore be doubled to 20 km, but below 25 percent hardly anything happens, firstly because the power is throttled and secondly because the scooter soon stops completely. Realistically, the e-scooter will only last 15 to 18 km at 7 to 10 °C. This means that you will get stuck at 3 out of 10 km.

Thus, it is easy to panic at 3 out of 5 bars, especially when they appear after 6 to 8 kilometers in winter. Overall, the range and the resulting power reduction is the big disappointment of the Mi Electric Scooter 3. The battery is simply too small, such early performance reductions diminish the driving pleasure considerably. Thus, every ride should be planned in advance. There are various instructions on the web, especially on YouTube, on how to connect additional batteries, but this involves not inconsiderable costs for the additional battery as well as effort.

Even the highest level of recuperation, i.e. energy recovery during braking by the motor, changes very little in the narrow range. The recently tested Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 reaches about 45 km in our test, but it also costs about 200 euros more.

Since the battery does not get completely empty, we also do not measure the full Wh pumped in during charging.

Edit: After a firmware update, the battery behavior changed. The last bar now flashes red when the scooter is almost empty. The power is still severely limited, but no longer necessarily the speed, which now simply depends on the power. In favorable conditions (slightly downhill, no headwind), the scooter can now reach 18 or 20 km/h even with only 1 bar.
