Xiaomi officially announced its first new electric scooter of the expected 2020 lineup – Xiaomi Electric Scooter 1S – which is already available!
In total there will be 3 new models in 2020:

  • Xiaomi Scooter 1S, which is replacing Xiaomi M365 with several new features, which I will highlight in this article.
  • Xiaomi Scooter Lite, which is a cheaper entry level model, similar to the less known Xiaomi M187. You can find all infos on Xiaomi Scooter Lite here.
  • Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2, which is basically a facelift of the Xiaomi Scooter Pro with minor improvements. You can compare them in my article: Xiaomi Pro 2 vs Xiaomi Pro.

Xiaomi Electric Scooter 1S

Updated: Here’s an unboxing video of my friend Sami Luo. If you have questions regarding Xiaomi 1S let me know in the comments below this article and I’ll forward them to Sami.

 

Xiaomi Scooter 1S comes with a maximum speed of 25km/h and a range of 30km. That’s the same as for Xiaomi M365. Note that the 30km range are tested with a 75kg driver going 15km/h on a flat surface. In my fieldtest comparison of Xiaomi M365 vs Xiaomi Pro I achieved around 18km for M365. The new model holds a dashboard that shows speed, driving mode and battery & status infos, same as used in Xiaomi Scooter Pro. Xiaomi M365 only indicated battery status via 4 LED lights as well as driving mode.

Whereas Xiaomi M365 supports 2 driving modes, the new Xiaomi 1S supports three modes, again similar to Xiaomi Scooter Pro: “ECO” for energy saving mode (15km/h), “D” for standard mode (20 km/h) and “S” for sports mode (25 km/h). You can switch modes by pressing the power button twice.

Thanks to Sami’s video I spotted another difference which is not noticeable by the specs. Xiaomi Scooter 1S is also featuring the brakes also used for Xiaomi Scooter Pro. That’s great as the thinner disc brake of M365 bends easily. (Xiaomi 1S in the front and Xiaomi M365 in the back):

Conclusion

It seems Xiaomi Scooter 1S is an improved version of the popular Xiaomi M365 which now shares some components with the Pro version: The display including the driving modes as well as the better brakes. I’d say 1S is the successor of M365 since the price is similar. There are still some major differences between 1S and Pro: Pro has a stronger motor & larger battery and the Pro version is a bit larger (longer footrest and taller steering rod). You can compare all three of them in my chart below.

Sami is further testing the new Xiaomi Scooter 1S and I’ll let you know if there are further improvements not visible by the specs. In the description on the Xiaomi website they put quite a focus on the battery and battery management systems. So maybe there are some further adaptions on the inside.

I’d still suggest to go for the Pro version if you are willing to pay the higher price. You can feel the power difference while accelerating and going uphill, much more than I expected before testing. The larger footrest is more comfortable to ride. Find out all differences in detail in my article of the field test Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi M365, that’s my result in a nutshell:

 

Xiaomi Scooter Pro / Pro 2 vs Xiaomi 1S / M365:

Longer Range (increased battery capacity)

Better Acceleration (stronger motor)

Better Uphill Performance (stronger motor)

Comfier Driving Position (larger footrest)

Price (higher than 1S / M365)

Weight (heavier than 1S / M365)

    The Xiaomi Is is merely a incremental “refreshed” version of the original M365 with added M365 Pro features, and what we know so far is that this model might replace the older M365 since the 1st-gen model suffered from numerous issues, such as the folding mechanism, and battery fatigue and so forth. Let alone that “Lite” version is also a cheaper version of the 1S.

    Still curious about the next successor to the M365 Pro, dubbed the Xiaomi ES “Pro 2”. Fingers crossed that Xiaomi has added necessary features that’s worthy of upgradgneing to the sequel like dual-suspension, greater Sports mode range, powerful motor like 500w, 10″ inch tubeless air-filled tyres, slightly redesigned foot-deck/mud-flaps/rear lights/ handle-bar/LCD screen, plus ambient underside LED-lights would make a great feature as well hehe!

      It is a refresh with display and brakes taken from Pro; but since it is offered for the same price as M365 (in China), I think 1S will replace M365. Let’s see how the potential cheaper “Lite” will look like and what improvements there are for the Pro version.
      I also hope for tubeless tires. Since Pro has a 300W (600W peak) motor, I guess you are looking for a 500W (1000W peak) motor or similar?

  2. Pat 27. April 2020 at 12:09 Reply

    @el Producente: I hope so! More motor power equals to higher top speed, so if they are looking into upgrading the motor from 300w to 500w then I expect the voltage to bump up above 40v and it should achieve top speeds of 35+km/hr, perhaps 40km/hr is a dream come true! To compensate this, they should equip the Xiaomi Pro 2 a massive battery upgrade over the existing 12.8.Ah battery to 15.3Ah or near 20Ah, say 17-18Ah so we can see the range increase from 45km to 75-90km range in Eco mode. Hoping for Pro 2’s Sports mode range to exceed the Ninebot Max’s range! Currently its 25km, needs to be doubled!

    Anyway, I have managed to unlock my existing Xiaomi M365 Pro’s speed to 35km/hr and since they are planning to announce their successor to the Pro their existing M365 design definitely needs a overhaul, or at least a dimensional change, and that depends on whether they they will include dual-suspension or just add 10″inch tubeless tyres like the Ninebot Max, but hey everyone wants them suspension right?

    Still hate the way they expose those wires at the rear wheel arch since my M365 Pro’s rear tail light doesn’t work anymore due to the tyres touching the exposed wires whether I ride on my M365 Pro to work and stuff.

    Ben Fox (Youtube e-scooter reviewer) expects Xiaomi to step it up to the big boys, and make their next-gen version more of a step up from the M365 Pro, but a minor incremental refreshed model with dated-M365 features.

    It looks like the Xiaomi Pro 2 and a different type of Xiaomi M365 1S for the european markets has been leaked?! https://gizchina.it/2020/05/xiaomi-mi-scooter-1s-mi-scooter-pro-2-prezzo-data/

    • el Producente 24. May 2020 at 9:49 Reply

      They are for made for the German market. They need a numberplate, 2 separate brakes (not electric) and are limited to 20 km/h!

    @el Producente: not much of a upgrade over my existing M365 Pro then lol. German version or not its not worth looking at unless you don’t own a e-scooter yet.

    • el Producente 26. May 2020 at 11:21 Reply

      The new Xiaomi 1S is replacing the original Xiaomi M365. A slight upgrade of the M365 (better brakes & display).
      The Xiaomi Pro is better than 1S – there might be a Pro 2.
      The German versions are limited to 20 km/h and have items such as number plate holder – they are especially for Germany – NOT recommended for other countries.

    @el Producente: why did they dub it as the Xiaomi Pro 2 for the German market which is odd thing to do, should be dubbed as the Xiaomi M365 Pro Ger. version rather than Xiaomi Pro 2 lol.

    • el Producente 3. June 2020 at 19:19 Reply

      I think there will bi a new Version Xiaomi Pro 2; seems like the pics of the German version were released (leaked) first.
      There is also a new Xiaomi 1S for international market as well as a German version.
