Xiaomi Mi Essential

The Xiaomi Mi Essential is a rightly popular electric scooter, built with aircraft-grade aluminium to create a lightweight frame that makes for quick riding and easy storage and carrying when not in use. Better yet, you can connect it to the Mi Home app for iOS and Android to check things like riding stats and battery status effortlessly.

Boasting long-lasting battery life and fast charging times, the Mi Essential is a great choice for journeys of up to 12.4 miles as well as regular short hops. The high-grade aluminium alloy this scooter is made from is both low-density and high strength, so despite weighing just 12kg, this is still a hard-wearing machine that holds its own when in daily use. Two speed modes, cruise control and a dual braking system all combine to make for an effortless ride.

Thanks to a super-smart structural design, the Xiaomi Mi Essential scooter can be folded away in just three seconds – and with a folded height of only 49cm, it takes up less space than many alternatives currently on the market.

This scooter is not waterproof, please do not use in wet conditions.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or you’ve never set off on an electric scooter before, the Xiaomi Mi Essential scooter is incredibly easy to use. It offers three speed modes – pedestrian, standard and sport – which provide a maximum speed of around 12.4mph (20km/h) and range of up to 12.4 miles (20km).

The Mi Essential comes with 8.5” pneumatic, skid-resistant tyres, E-ABS and disc brakes, as well as a smart battery management system (BMS) and kinetic energy recovery system (KERS). And for an additional edge over the competition, you can connect your scooter to the Mi Home app to make use of remote locking.

When your Xiaomi Mi Essential arrives, you’ll find a power adapter, extension nozzle, allen key and screws inside the box, as well as your user manual – and of course, the electric scooter itself. Please note that the Xiaomi Mi Essential is not suitable for use in wet weather conditions
