For a few years, but especially for a few months, the madness of electric scooters has taken hold of a good part of the population . Considered a toy for children ten years ago, this means of transport is becoming more than a trend since it is now a real ecological and economical solution for travel.

Adults and children alike are therefore seduced, especially in large cities where travel is often an obstacle course. However, all models are not necessarily equal and of course some products offered have comparative advantages compared to others.

We have therefore decided to take a closer look at the Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter , in order to give you our opinion on this product.

Introducing the Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter

Let's start by presenting the main technical characteristics of the M365.

  • Top speed : 25 km/h
  • Autonomy : 30 km
  • Charging time : 4-5 hours
  • Weight : 12kg
  • Wheel size : 8.5 inch inflatable
  • Motor : 250W Brushless (can deploy 500W)
  • Battery : Lithium-Ion LG, 42V 6.4Ah
  • Dimensions unfolded: 108 x 114 x 43 cm
  • Dimensions folded: 108 x 49 x 43 cm

The Xiaomi M365 scooter has two wheels of approximately 21.5 cm in diameter, an LED headlight, as well as a bell.

Design of the Xiaomi M365

The Xiaomi M365 scooter is making a lot of noise, mainly because of its price, which is half the price of its competitors!

That said, this does not mean that the brand has neglected the quality of its product.
Certainly the style of the Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter is very minimalist , we also regret that the central handlebar is not adjustable. This can be quite penalizing for people of small or large size. On the other hand, the dimensions will be perfect for people between 1 m 65 to 1 m 80.

In addition, the Xiaomi M365 scooter is foldable , which allows it to be transported more easily or to be stored once arrived at its destination. It is built in an aluminum alloy, which gives it great solidity and good resistance to damage . severe weather.

The overall result is very elegant and rather sober and chic, so even in a suit or in a suit you will clearly not look like a child having fun on Sundays.

Autonomy of the Xiaomi M365

On paper it has very interesting characteristics, in practice you will have the possibility to choose between two modes :

  • Normal mode , which offers a range of 20 km and a speed of around 25 km/h.
  • The economy mode , which provides a range of between 25 and 30 km ! On the other hand, the maximum speed will be 16 km / h, which in our opinion clearly lacks punch.

These data vary of course according to the weight of the user and the conditions of use. It goes without saying that on a flat surface, the scooter will be faster and above all more comfortable than on a paved road.

It takes about 5 hours to fully charge the scooter. The battery is an LG Lithium-Ion battery.

It is also important to note that this product has an energy recovery function thanks to braking , which is really practical and state-of-the-art in terms of technology.

The Xiaomi M365 scooter has four LEDs on the handlebars so that you can check the battery level.

But that's not all: by using the Ninebot iOS and Android app , you can check the battery gauge level in real time on your smartphone to know what you've consumed and what you have left.

Safety and use of the Xiaomi M365

To start the scooter, all you have to do is press the single button on the handlebars for about ten seconds, then after a slight push of your foot and the accelerator, the adventure begins!

You can also count on the two brakes, an electric motor brake with an ABS locking system as well as a mechanical brake on the rear wheel similar to those present on bicycles.

The Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter is also equipped with a kickstand to stabilize it when stationary and with a speed regulation option.

Although the Xiaomi M365 scooter has an honorable power for its category, it can seem a little weak on the climbs, especially if the percentage of the slope exceeds 14%, and the user is heavy.

Construction and Packaging of the Xiaomi M365

This electric scooter is made in China by the recently listed company XIAOMI, it is the top of the Chinese range , nothing to do with what can be found at low cost on the net.

The ambition of the XIAOMI firm is to offer a superior quality product, while being very competitive in terms of price . A successful bet if we are to believe the staggering sales of the M365 over the past year, as well as the opening of stores in France.

The good surprise is also at the packaging level, in fact, it is very well packaged and perfectly protected.

Assembly is very easy and everything you need is provided inside so you don't have to search right and left. To reassure you, only the handlebars require assembly.

As we have seen previously, the Xiaomi M365 scooter is equipped with a headlight in order to be able to ride at night . That said, a surplus of brightness will not be too much, so it is strongly advised to bring additional lighting in order to have maximum visibility.

Conclusion of the Xiaomi M365 electric scooter test

The Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter, although low cost compared to many other models, is nonetheless a very good product that offers excellent value for money (as on this Xiaomi M365 Review ).

Indeed the Chinese brand which initially made itself known thanks to its smartphones at reduced prices intends to diversify its products and we can see that this scooter transforms the test brilliantly.

Through various reductions you can find the Xiaomi M365 scooter between 399 and 499 euros which represents between 2 and 3 times cheaper than other models of the same caliber!

However, there are still details to be refined, such as the handlebars which cannot be adjusted, the small lack of power, etc.….

In short, nothing too bad, for the one that currently remains one of the scooters that offers the best value for money on the market!
