News Xiaomi HIMO T1 E-scooter with up to 120 km range announced

Electronic mails have been around for some time, electronic bicycles, scooters and skateboards are becoming more and more popular. The big catchword: e-mobility. The Xiaomi HIMO T1 E scooter is much more than just a last mile gadget, it offers a range of up to 120 km.

A modern scooter

At first glance, the HIMO T1 looks like a very modern version of a classic moped, as we know it from manufacturers like Puch or Piaggio. It is also clearly recognizable as the successor of the HIMO e-bike. The two tires are 90 mm wide and 8 mm thick, the actual rims are of course left out. In contrast to an electric scooter like the Ninebot ES1, the advantage of this electric scooter is of course the seat, which offers space for one person. Considering the price, Xiaomi will probably use a kind of plastic body, which is available in white, black and red.

It is noticeable that the T1 is also equipped with pedals. This could mean that the HIMO T1 E-scooter has to be “stepped on” for a short time before the engine grips. In principle, that’s how it works with electric scooters.

In the back is the drum brake, but of course also a luggage carrier.

Apropos motor: this is a 350W motor, which is driven by a 14.000 mAh battery. But the maximum speed is about 25 km/h. But there are probably two different versions, one with 14Ah and one with 28Ah. By the battery one can come depending upon version on a maximum range of 120 km, the normal model offers nevertheless a range of 60 kilometers. The manufacturer also relies on an intelligent battery management system.

To reduce speed, Xiaomi uses a dual-brake system. A disc brake is installed at the front and a drum brake at the rear. The braking distance is given as 4.5 meters. In the front there are hydraulic shock absorbers. To ensure visibility in road traffic, the Xiaomi HIMO T1 E-scooter is equipped with a headlight at the front, which should shine up to 15 m far.

The necessary extras

But Xiaomi wouldn’t be Xiaomi if you didn’t at least install a display. This is located in the handlebar and is light-sensitive, the brightness probably adapts to the ambient light. The T1 is easy to start with the push of a button and also offers a multifunction button that can probably be used to switch through information on the display. There are also function keys for the light, the horn and a parking mode.

The luggage carrier above the rear tyre is of course used to transport your shopping safely from A to B. The rear tyre is equipped with a rear rack. However, this can still be done with a basket that can be attached to the front with a click system. Whether this is included in the price or has to be purchased separately, we can’t say at the moment.

Evaluation

An import would cost something, but the price of 2999 Yuan in China is with $443 (!) more than attractive. The E-Scooter is currently still in crowdfunding, but the goal has already been more than achieved. No wonder, after all it is a practical electric scooter with good performance at an unbeatable price.

Would you drive such an electric scooter?

    With a maximum speed of 25 km/h it would be completely useless on the road. You must be able to keep up with the other traffic otherwise you would create traffic chaos. Maximum speed must be at least 80km/h

    Agreed with other comment, at 25km an hour one might as well be on a bicycle. I do like the appearance of the scooter.

    I am in a growing boom town in sweeny Texas. In between Phillip’s 66 petrol plant and tennarris plant. I would love an opportunity to sale these to all these folks around here. If the electric scooter company wants alot of sales and a Texas partner . I got plenty of land and would make many sales.
