Xiaomi unveils the Mijia electric scooter: 30km range, sub-$300 price
Xiaomi unveiled its electric vehicle and itís not a car - itís an electric scooter called the Mijia. Smaller and more portable than the companyís QiCycle and cheaper too - when it launches at 10:00 on December 15, it will cost CNY 2,000 (equivalent to $290/Ä270).
The Mijia has a range of 30km (while carrying a 75kg person) thanks to its 280Wh battery (LG 1850 lithium) and its 500W motor can push it up to 25km/h. The scooter features regenerative breaking (KERS), but also a regular brake disc (with E-ABS) so it can come to a complete stop in 4m.
Xiaomi will offer two color options - White and Black - for the scooter, which folds up in just 3 seconds. It weighs 12.5kg (27.5lbs) so it is portable, though you probably donít want to carry it very long (or at all).
The Xiaomi Mijia comes with a smartphone app, naturally. It gives info on current speed, battery charge and range. It also allows you to monitor the battery and will notify you immediately if thereís something wrong.
