Xiaomi’s new electric scooter — the Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro — was released on February 18th and has joined the company’s rather extensive set of rideables. As the name itself suggests, the new scooter is meant as an upgrade to the previous model, the Mijia M365 Electric Scooter. Let’s see what the new model has to offer and what new features the pro version brings to the table and whether you should trade in your M365 electric scooter for the shiny new Mijia Electric Scooter Pro.

Continuity in design with a novelty in the form of a screen

One of the keys to the good reception of the products Xiaomi is, in addition to the relation price benefits, its design. The scooter Xiaomi My Electric Scooter is a solid product, of quality and with good materials. Its 12.5 kg weight, without being the lightest in its category, made it moderately comfortable to transport. In this sense, the Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro replicates the design, design and materials of the previous one but adding a couple of kilograms more, the direct result of the incorporations.

It has LED lights, its handlebars still not adjustable in height and as in the previous model, we found the brake on the left handle and the throttle on the right. Without leaving the handlebars we come across the main aesthetic novelty: the integration of a screen.

Done before there was a button plus four LED indicators to turn on the scooter and control the battery, now there is a LED panel that offers up to six different display types, an interface that will allow the drivers of the vehicle to have at their disposal more Details, both from the screen and from the app installed on the mobile.

Otherwise, the new Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro repeats the folding system by screw and its safety lock with a turning mechanism, an aspect that during the analysis of the previous model commented that it had room for improvement.

Again, we will place the feet on a gummy surface that provides grip and protection against splashes through the fender. Xiaomi also repeats the brake system, consisting of a combination of disc brake and configurable regenerative brake supported by an anti-lock E-ABS system to prevent skids. In the wheels we also found no news, repeating with tyres of 8 1/2 inches with air chamber.

More autonomy as an exclusive novelty in the technical part

According to the manufacturer, the new Xiaomi scooter continues to provide a point and a half speed similar to the previous model, however these points may differ depending on the weight of the person. As with the Xiaomi my Electric Scooter, it allows drivers of up to 100 kilograms of weight and two meters of height.

In this sense, the maximum speed of the new Xiaomi scooter is 25 kilometres per hour and it drops to 15 km/h in Eco mode. A novelty of the Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro is a third mode of energy dedicated to sport, where users can select various data to display on the screen, show speed and other data in real time.

Also, the levels of regenerative braking, which before we had to control from the application, can now be done both from the app and from the panel.

But the main attraction in the technical field is the improved autonomy of the new Xiaomi Mijia Electric Pro. In our analysis of the Xiaomi my Electric Scooter achieved an autonomy very close to the 30 kilometers specified by the manufacturer, but we must take into account aspects such as the level established for regenerative braking, the speed at which we move, Climatology (wind for or against) or the weight of the user.

The battery of the new Xiaomi Mijia Electric Pro grows from 280 Wh to 474Wh, a figure that will allow users to reach 45 kilometers of autonomy in the most favorable conditions.

A slightly superior price for a slightly superior model

The Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro is a version that preserves the main assets of the Xiaomi my Electric Scooter, such as its design, materials and high speed, offering a plus of manageability in the form of LED panel on the handlebar and a theoretical autonomy 50% higher.

Xiaomi has opted to extend the autonomy so that we can use it during the day with the guarantee that, for the majority of the users, it will cover their expectations in an urban scenario.

Also, in this new version have not improved their speeds, given that the original model already offered some solvent figures for what it is, an urban scooter that already poses risks in spaces where it coexists with the pedestrian and other vehicles as Cars, motorcycles or bicycles.

Some interesting improvements to what the market offers that make it a very attractive model for potential buyers but perhaps not so innovative as to make the leap from one model to another.

With these modifications, Xiaomi has launched the Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro in China at an official price significantly higher than the Xiaomi my Electric Scooter, 2,799 yuan for the 1,999 yuan of the original model.
