If there is one thing that has led electric scooters to star in an unprecedented sales boom throughout the past year, it is that they represent the most affordable echelon of electric mobility. In addition, this has been pushed by the health situation, as well as electronic commerce, which has led us to consult which has been the best-selling electric scooter on the website of the giant Amazon, and it is an electric scooter from Xiaomi.
The reasons why electric scooters are currently more in demand than bicycles resides, basically, in two aspects. The first one is that in the best cases An electric bicycle from a firm that gives guarantees to the buyer will be around the 1,000 euro barrier, a figure that will double or triple that of an electric scooter.
The second of them is that Piloting an electric scooter does not require any effort from the userOr, while on an electric bicycle we will have to pedal to enjoy that electric assistance, which makes it more comfortable and conducive to everyday life. Although some models of electric bicycles that have a fist or button accelerator, these cannot be legally considered as bicycles.
How is the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 1S?
Thus, Amazon’s best-selling electric scooter on the Spanish e-merchant portal, and therefore one of the best sellers in our country, It is the XIAOMI Mi Electric Scooter 1S, one of the most basic electric scooters of the Chinese firm, although not the most.
It is an electric scooter that articulates its main purchase asset in its price, since it is the second most affordable electric scooter in Xiaomi’s current electric mobility catalog. In fact, at the moment it is the only electric scooter that is below this, it is offered by Amazon itself; add the tag “Essential” to be offered with a price of less than 300 euros.
The Chinese firm highlights several aspects around the Mi Electric Scooter 1S, the main one being its autonomy; declares that a full charge will take the user to enjoy a total distance of 30 kilometers. While it is true that this will depend on the type of use of each user, the announced autonomy is relative to a constant journey on a flat surface at a constant speed of 15 kilometers per hour.
The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter has a motor 250 W of power located on the front axle and is powered by a battery with a capacity of 275 Wh. The maximum speed that the Mi Electric Scooter 1S will reach is 25 kilometers per hour, although to avoid having to walk paying attention to the speedometer, it has the option of limiting the speed based on the driving mode chosen by the user. Pedestrian mode limits it to five kilometers per hour, while sports mode is the one that achieves maximum speed.
Other attributes highlighted by the signature of the Xiaomi Mi Eletric Scooter 1S are, for example, the folding in three seconds, or the two brakes per disc, to which is added the regenerative braking of the front axle. It weighs 12.5 kilos and is capable of carrying loads of up to 100 kilos.
The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 1S is offered by the Amazon Spain website for 365 euros (at the time of writing). This price represents a 19% discount compared to the 449 euros that it costs on Xiaomi’s own website.
Last week we echoed Amazon’s best-selling electric bike in Spain. It was a full suspension type e-MTB, the Moma E-MTB Full Suspension 29, a Spanish electric bicycle that costs less than 1,500 euros, a priori a low price for a full suspension electric bicycle.
