Recently Xiaomi officially launched the Electric Scooter Essential Lite, which has 20km range, 20km/h top speed, visual interactive dashboard and dual brake system. It’s arguably the lower-end version of the electric scooter, which is said to push the price into the $199 range.
According to the introduction, the biggest upgrade of the Xiaomi Electric Scooter Essential Lite is the addition of a visual interactive dashboard that supports self-testing of the car’s condition when it is turned on, and the “Repair” icon will automatically light up if there is a fault. In the driving state, real-time information such as speed, power, etc. is readily available at a glance; all driving operations can be completed with a single button using minimalist operating logic. Mijia electric scooter 1S continues the minimalist geometric design, aviation grade aluminum alloy body, the net weight of the whole vehicle 12.5Kg, load capacity up to 100Kg, the unique folding clasp design only need to break and press, 3 seconds to achieve a quick folding.
The Xiaomi Essential Lite features dual front and rear wheel brakes with energy recovery and motor reverse braking effect with E-ABS anti-lock system at the front and disc brakes at the rear. In actual riding, the braking force of the rear wheel feels not very strong, and even if you pinch it to the end, you won’t hold it to death, which is probably a safety concern.
It is equipped with 8.5-inch tires and wear-resistant anti-skid tread, with dual front and rear wheel braking design, energy recovery at the front wheel (for longer range) and motor reverse braking effect when the throttle is released or the brake handle is depressed.
In addition, it supports the MIjia App to learn about novice tutorials, perform firmware updates, check ride status, and more.
