And now this? Well, basically, more of the same: Hop on, turn it on and give it a little push So that it starts when you press the accelerator pedal. There are three driving modes:
pedestrian modeWith a limited speed range of up to 5 km/h, useful for navigating through areas where you have to walk slowly, for example in traffic jams or congested and/or narrow areas.
Standard Mode up to 20 km / h. A way to extend battery autonomy by not taking it to the most demanding point can be interesting for areas that don’t have many uphill slopes.
If the area is empty and you prefer to press it, go to Sports Mode To reach 25 km / h. It is also useful for climbing steep hills by allowing the scooter to reach its full power.
One of the novelties of the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro is that it has a motor with 350 watts of nominal power and 700 watts max, which is something more than the previous Pro. Of course, it continues Limited to a top speed of 25 km/h As required by law.
This increased power allows you Climbing hills with a slope of up to 20 degrees As did the previous Pro, but of course, it also weighs more and supports a higher maximum load. This last point is practically the most interesting, since when driving it is not overestimated: on the steepest climbs in my city, like Cuesta de la Reina, I pushed it to the limit and in Sport mode I reached 13 km / h
It is clear here that not only the power of the engine affects, but also other factors such as my weight and the direction of the wind or the transition from asphalt to gravel. Anyway, it’s a qualitative point: Pamplona is a city full of slopes and during my travels through it I never had to get off because the scooter couldn’t handle me, although it drops to about 10 km/h.
Commentary is still a must From this latest version of Xiaomi. It’s true that its wheels, being larger, better handle the bumps of the terrain, but given the Pro title and price tag, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect them.
Suspends are still “essential” from this latest Xiaomi release
The The brake system remains efficient and safe: It is almost instantaneous but does not brake suddenly, which can be dangerous depending on the scenario. To achieve this, this scooter combines a rear disc brake system and a front eABS. In addition, from the application, it is possible to regulate the intensity of the energy recovery KERS to extend the autonomy a little more.
It integrates a 12,400 mAh battery with a theoretical autonomy of 55 km, but again, how long it will last will depend on external and personal conditions. Anyway, this section pleasantly surprised me, given that I drove most of the time in sports mode and with quite a few hills: I went over 20 km without spending even half the battery (56%). Thus, without special care, you can exceed 40-45 km per charge.
As for the charging time, without the need for a rocket launch, it is much faster than the 2 Pro, ranging from about 9 hours to about 6 hours to reach 100%. In my case, the autonomy of this scooter was more than enough for my travels, so I charged it once a week, which is not a problem, but if you have a plug nearby, you can also do it at your workplace.
You can do this information and other statistics and other options such as activating cruise control to maintain speed, blocking the engine to make theft more difficult, configuring braking energy recovery or turning on the taillight. From the application, which is intuitive and easy to use. You may not be a very technical person, but it is worth it: consider, for example, that the autonomous step of 45-55 kilometers is reached.
Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro, Xataka’s opinion
Electric scooters have deservedly earned their place in the streets To provide a comfortable way to move around, in which you don’t sweat (important if you go to the office), agile, easy to stand and analyze urban distances. Compared to electric bikes, they are also more affordable, which is inherent in their greater simplicity, as they are less maintenance.
The Chinese company took the cat into the water and presented a model that, without being perfect, showed the box at the price of quality
Among them is one that shines with its own light: the Xiaomi scooter. It can be the original, Lite, Pro or any of the later generations. The Chinese company took the cat into the water and presented a model that, without being perfect and room for improvement, was powerful, worked well, provided a balanced ride between sport, urban and the best of it, chest in the price of quality. Just look at the competition to see that finding models with similar features in their price range was a complicated task. Plus, there’s a better guarantee than seeing that it’s still the choice of many users who take to the streets every day.
But competition and users are increasing and Xiaomi has to renew itself to continue to be a reference. The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro is a long-distance model – like the previous Pro – thanks to its great autonomy, but the best: It’s the Xiaomi Electric Scooter for people over 100kg. This is no small matter.
The model with a larger battery which should be larger requires a motor to match and this Pro has it. The B side of this integration of high-performance components and a bulkier design is weight: Folded is not compact and not pleasant to hold in the arms.
For practical purposes, there are two more features that everyone who owns a Xiaomi scooter will appreciate: both Its folding system, like its tires, appears to have been developed to improve its durability, although this is something that should be evaluated with continued use, in the medium term. Undoubtedly, driving with larger wheels is more comfortable in the face of bumps, although for the current price the suspension could already be expected.
Of course, it can no longer be said that it is a cheap motorcycle
More of everything has a direct consequence: its price has skyrocketed. From €549 Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 to €799 Goes to a generous price increase of 250 euros. Of course, it can no longer be said that it is a cheap scooter, although in general it is still quite interesting in terms of quality and price.
I see it as a matter of weight. If you weigh more than 100 kg and bet on the experience and knowledge of Xiaomi, then this is your scooter. If not, the previous generation is still the most convenient option to save a good deal.
