Xiaomi Beijing-based automotive company has officially launched its electric scooter 3 lite with an upgraded version, extra features & with upgraded build quality. so in this article, we will see a complete detail of 3 lite in detail with my experience.
As we learned that Xiaomi’s invest the $10 billion electric vehicles project is said to hit a regulatory roadblock, Xiaomi has faced difficulty to get regulatory approval for its electric vehicles project but now Xiaomi might get approval and planning to launch it’s 10 all-new EV variants early 2023.
Let us talk about the Xiaomi E-scooter, as I previously told you that this is an upgraded version of its predecessor MIJIA M365 which was launched in later 2017, but Xiaomi said that this version 3 lite is more convenient, cruise control, 3 driving modes with the extra range also adds high-quality aluminum material.
As the E-scooter trend drastically increase in the market not only in China but in other countries also, so that’s why Xiaomi decided to introduce its 3 lite which comes at less than $500, with premium aluminum material, big wheelbase, support 3 steps foldable mechanism, ride smoothly in the bumpy situation easily.

Major & Minor Changes
The major change that I have to feel is that Xiaomi offers a drum brake system instead of a Disc brake, the only reason is that it required less maintained cost and will give more flexibility to Ev. What did you think this Xiaomi transition is true or not?
Also, a minor change is that it reduces the frame size of 3 lite, with the aim of a balanced lower center of gravity and stabilized ride, this means approx 6-7 feet can easily ride EV.
Xiaomi 3 Lite is based on third-generation architecture, it has a retro style with semi-bezels, is lightweight, with a large instrumental cluster screen compared to the previous one. in the cluster screen, you will see a ride range, mileage, and trip data.
