On sale “soon”, Xiaomi have just announce a couple of new scooters which are heading to the UK. The new Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 and Mi Electric Scooter 1S will be heading to us very soon and are ideal for short commutes.
The Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 can reach speeds of 25 km/h (just a nudge over 15mph) and it’ll carry on going for 45km on a single charge – that’s almost 28 miles. A 300W brushless motor will see you going up 20% incline slopes with ease and a built-in LCD panel lets you know what’s happening. You can check your speed and battery level, switch riding modes and more.
The Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 has 8.5-inch pneumatic tyres to absorbs shocks from bumps in the road. In addition, there’s a dual braking system plus front, rear and side reflectors for added safety. When things get dark, a powerful 2W headlight ensures that you can see and be seen.
Weighing in at 14.2KG, the Pro 2 can be folded up quickly and carried around without a problem.
Today we also saw the firm launch the Mi Electric Scooter 1S. This has got a slightly less powerful 250W motor (good for 14% climbs) but can hit the same 25km/h / 15mph speeds. This one doesn’t last as long, but you’ll still get 30km (18.6 miles) on a single charge.
Again, there’s double braking and reinforced pneumatic tires. This one is a little lighter at just 12.5KG.
No info on pricing or availability dates as yet, but keep an eye on mi.com/UK for updates.
