Xiaomi has presented a new version of its Scooter 3 electric scooter. The Lite, from its name, logically loses out, but it is also more affordable.

A year after the formalization of the Mi Electric Scooter 3, Xiaomi returns with a Lite version whose technical sheet has logically been revisited. As its name suggests, expect some small concessions in exchange for a more contained price. Let’s get to the heart of the matter without delay: 449 euros will be required for this new model.

For comparison, the classic Scooter 3 is purchased at the price of 529 euros on the official Xiaomi website. Therefore, there is a difference of 80 euros between the two models. Let us now focus on the characteristics of this Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 Lite, which is more timid in terms of autonomy.

This folding scooter has a range of 20 kilometers thanks to its 5200 mAh battery. For comparison, her older sister opts for a 7,650 mAh battery for a theoretical range of 30 kilometers. Except in practice, we were closer to 20 kilometers.

For the Lite, therefore, we must expect a range sailing more than 15 kilometers at most, which is relatively low for daily trips. Fortunately, the charging time is shorter, 4.5 hours, but not very fast either. It takes a morning or afternoon to fully charge it.

In terms of power, the Electric Scooter 3 Lite goes up to 300 W (nominal). But it has less punch to climb hills, since Xiaomi assures you to climb slopes of up to 14%, compared to 16% of the classic Scooter 3. The maximum power -which has not been communicated- is probably less.

In any case, the machine is limited to a maximum speed of 25 km/h, in accordance with the law. Its aluminum frame is equipped with 8.5-inch rubber wheels, combined with a drum brake at the rear, compared to a disc brake on the Scooter 3. This two-wheeler can carry a maximum load of 100kg

Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 Lite: price and availability

In terms of weight precisely, this Lite bears its name quite well with respect to the 13 kilos that appear on the scale. He is about the same weight as his older brother, but already more reasonable than the 16.5kg Scooter 4 Pro we tested. He also stays a bit longer and taller, but only slightly.

Available in black or white, the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 3 Lite is available from September 8, 2022 at a price of 449 euros, at Fnac, Darty, Boulanger, Leclerc, Carrefour, Auchan, Système U, Cdiscount, Rue du Commerce and Amazon. From September 8 to 18, a small discount of 20 euros is offered.
