The best e-scooter of 2020: Xiaomi 1S
The world’s best-selling scooter, the Xiaomi M365 just got an upgrade – and the results are stunning. The Xiaomi 1S has all the great features of the M365 – like great handling, exceptional build quality and an ultra-reliable electric motor – but has been improved for 2020 with an upgraded multi-functional LED display.
It boasts a top speed of 15.5mph and a range of up to 18.6 miles on a full charge. You’ll feel safe with the automatic electronic regenerative brakes with E-ABS, and protected with a bullet-proof 2-year warranty. Keep track of progress with the Mi Home App, and you’ll never miss a mile. The best bit? You get all this performance at the incredible price of £499.00.
It’s our choice for the best e-scooter of 2020.
Performance package: Xiaomi Pro 2
The Xiaomi Pro 2 Electric Scooter is the 1S’ big brother – with a maximum range of 28 miles, courtesy of its larger battery. It’s a little heavier but feels safer with a new lighting safety system and improved skid-resistant and shock-absorbing pneumatic tyres.
The new range of Xiaomi scooters is based on a sleek and sophisticated minimalist design, that does away with unnecessary functions and features. Built from aircraft-quality aluminium, it’s designed to go the distance – and you’ll love every mile.
Lightweight choice: Xiaomi Mi Essential Electric Scooter
The lightest of the options, the Essential’s design is centred on practicality. Tipping the scales at only 12kg, it folds up in less than 3 seconds and is easy to carry.
This doesn’t come at the cost of performance, with a 250W motor providing assisted speeds of up to 12.4mph and a considerable maximum range of 12.4 miles.
With such a range, Xiaomi has the perfect option whatever your needs. Prepare yourself for your next two-wheeled adventure!
