E-Scooters are not to be used on public roads or pavements. Only on private land with the owner's consent.
The Essential is the lightest e-scooter that Xiaomi makes, weighing just 12kg. With dimensions that make it easy to fold down and store away, it’s the perfect tool for those short journeys that might involve carrying it up stairs or onto public transport, while it’s compact to be stored away easily at home or in the office too.
Powerful LED lights and front, side and rear reflectors means that the Xiaomi Essential e-scooter meets the latest European safety standards. This makes your daily ride safer, enabling you to see further in the dark, and be seen by others.
Xiaomi e-scooters come complete with an energy recovery system built into the front wheel motor. Pull the brakes, and the electronic brake converts some of the energy back into battery power, prolonging your remaining range.
