Xiaomi's foldng scooter, the M365, is already quite popular, particularly with commuters in crowded urban areas. Now, Xiami offers a new kind of scooter where you can sit down. The brand has recently launched its newest lineup of electric moped scooters called the A1 and A1 Pro models. Both models use a 48-volt electrical system, feature front disc brakes, and rear spring shock absorbers. The A1 and A1 Pro are equipped with a 750-watt rear motor. Both of the scooter's batteries are removable and can be charged separately.
To be specific, the A1 model is powered by a 768-watt battery. Xiaomi claims this can power it for 60-kilometers. The A1 Pro, on the other hand, is powered by a 960-watt battery and has a claimed 70-kilometer range.
Perhaps what separates Xiaomi's A1 and A1 Pro e-scooters from the usual electric scooters we often see on the road is the inclusion of a fully-digital color display. On the A1 Pro, it even gets a touchscreen with voice command fucntion and GPS directions.
Both scooters also feature a 1080p, wide-angle camera to capture videos of your rides (though only the A1 Pro has built-in memory). Top speed for both e-scooters are set to 25 kilometers per hour, which is the speed limit on e-bikes imposed by the Chinese government.
The A1 and A1 Pro retail at $423 and $523 or about PhP21,600 and PhP26,700, respectively.
