Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro, analysis and opinion

The electric scooters came to stay. The Xiaomi has been one of the best selling models, and in this analysis of the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro, we test the operation of the most advanced version.
At this point, there is no doubt that the Xiaomi electric scooter is one of the most successful products of this company, and it has already become ubiquitous in all the cities of Spain, invaded by these electric scooters.
Of course, they are not all the same: there is the standard model and the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro, whose analysis you read. We had the opportunity to thoroughly test this model, with more power and autonomy, two demands made by those who had the opportunity to test the normal model, which perhaps fell short in both sections.

Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro

Its price in Spain is € 499, although occasionally some offers appear, not many or very aggressive. We have circulated with him to test if he meets the expectations and especially to guide you and help you decide if the Xiaomi Pro electric scooter is worth it or not in what cases.
Summary of the Xiaomi Mi Scooter Pro analysis in sections:

  • Design: an improvement not noticeable to the naked eye
  • Performance: three power modes
  • Battery: more autonomy, although not as much as you think
  • Usability: a good way to move, although it depends on the city
  • Conclusion: it's worth it, although it depends on the case

Go further and faster, something that always comes in handy
When the Mi Electric Scooter Pro was introduced, everyone thought of it as a logical and necessary improvement that adds up to 45 km of autonomy and an engine with 300W of power (600W output), something that as we have seen first hand, help and much when it comes to climbing slopes.
Thanks to this jump, you can reduce your dependence on the plug to a good extent, although as we will see later, one thing is the nominal autonomy and another the real one, since the latter always stays a little below what was promised in all models, is not something exclusive to Xiaomi.

At first glance, there are no differences between the Pro model and the standard. The design is absolutely identical, although the Pro weighs 14,12 kg, although nothing is noticeable when it comes to folding and loading.
The assembly is quite simple since you only have to fix the handlebar with an Allen key that is included in the pack. For the rest, folding and unfolding it is quite simple and once you do it three times you will be able to do it in a matter of seconds.

More power, but does it show?
The key question of all this is is the improvement in power really noticeable? And the answer is a resounding yes. Not in straight lines, in which case you will arrive at a maximum speed of 25 km / h, although in slopes. In this case, they are 20 km / h, climbing quite steep slopes, a figure that improves the normal model and does not give you the feeling of going slowly, much less.
You really notice the improvement of traction in these situations and also in the starts. In fact, the 600W of output power makes you have to be careful when starting, because if you do not position yourself well, the initial pull may unbalance you and make you go to the ground.

It is a widespread problem in this scooter and in others and has to do with structure and design, although in this case being more powerful it shows more: the vibrations, potholes and obstacles are transmitted directly to the handlebar, without damping, so It is recommended that you do not speed up the speed unless you have it very well.
Therefore, it might be advisable to bet on another less powerful scooter if you do not have previous experience with these devices, or at least with a bicycle.

Three modes and an upgradeable LED display
This scooter has three different modes: Eco Mode, Normal Mode and Sport Mode, computer from lower to a higher power.
We can affirm after reviewing the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro that there are not too many differences between the last two, but with the first of all, the Eco Mode, which will make you circulate perhaps excessively slow, just over 10 km / h.

Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro

It is designed for you to use if you want to save battery, although you will practically go faster if you get off it and push it. It is useful for areas where you must travel on the sidewalk, although if there are people in it it is much safer and more respectful than going down and down.

A profitable investment if the autonomy of the normal model falls short
The holder of this device leaves little room for imagination: if you need 15 km one way and 15 km back a day, you have to invest a little more because the Mi Electric Scooter can leave you lying on the way home or to work.For the € 499 that the Pro model costs then it will be a good option, as if you live in a city full of slopes, although we refer to users who have already decided that they want an electric scooter.

Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro

Before taking the step and buying or not the Mi Electric Scooter Pro, the first thing you should assess is if your city is adapted to mobility on a scooter and if it is safe to drive around it. Otherwise, you may buy one and then end up not using it.
Despite the advantages of this model, mainly in power and battery, some errors have not been corrected, such as excessive instability in bumpy areas or poor visibility, especially at night.
