Xiaomi is bringing three street-legal electric scooters to Germany. The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro, the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 and the 3 Lite are launching in this country. Due to the Electric Mini Vehicles Regulation, the maximum speed had to be adjusted.
Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro
In June, Xiaomi made the e-scooter public as part of its new launches, which is said to mark Xiaomi’s most powerful scooter to date. With its features, however, the electric scooter was not approved for German road use.
That is now changing, as for the local market, the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro has been adapted to comply with the Electric Mini Vehicle Ordinance and will now reach a maximum speed of 20 km/h. It relies on a 350-watt motor that can deliver up to 700 watts at its peak. This means that even inclines of up to 20 percent should not be a problem. Braking energy is automatically converted into new power for the battery thanks to KERS (kinetic energy recovery system).
The 16.5 kg e-scooter can carry people weighing up to 120 kg. Thanks to its 12,400 mAh battery, the 4 Pro realizes ranges of up to 55 kilometers and is said to offer excellent standing comfort.
Features 10-inch tubeless, self-sealing tires. Braking is done with dual-piston disc brakes on the rear wheel, while an E-ABS system on the front further reduces stopping distance.
Also on offer is an LED display with speed and riding mode indicators, which also provides information about the battery and communicates with the smartphone via Bluetooth. The charging port is also magnetic.
Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3, on the other hand, is much newer and now also offers approval for German road traffic. Here, the motor has a maximum output of 600 watts at peak, while the maximum range is rated at 30 kilometers. KERS and dual-pad rear disc brakes are also offered by the 3 model.
The battery holds 7,650 mAh or 275 Wh, while the e-scooter relies on 8.5-inch pneumatic tires that are supposed to absorb shocks particularly effectively. There’s also a “Battery Sleep” mode that protects the battery and extends its life when the 3’s battery level is less than 30 percent for 10-15 days.
The electric scooter weighs 13.2 kg, handles inclines up to a maximum of 16 percent and also communicates with smartphones via Bluetooth 4.1.
Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 Lite
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 Lite, on the other hand, is the cheapest e-scooter in the bunch. It weighs only 13 kg and masters inclines of up to 14 percent with its 300-watt motor. Here, too, the maximum speed is limited to 20 km/h.
KERS system and tires are the same as on the 3 model, but the battery is smaller at 5,200 mAh or 187 Wh. Accordingly, the range also drops to a maximum of 20 kilometers. For braking, a drum braking system is used on the rear wheel, which is also supplemented by E-ABS at the front.

All e-scooters from Xiaomi will be available immediately in Germany and are already listed on Amazon, for example. The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro is priced at 799.00 Euro, the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 is priced at 549.00 Euro and the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 Lite will follow from 01 September at an RRP of 449.00 Euro.
