Xiaomi M365 Pro Review – 2019 Electric Scooter

M365 Pro MJ1048 - Dashboard

The new Xiaomi Mijia M365 Pro is here. The review is in, here’s everything you need to know.

This Xiaomi M365 Pro review will be the first to tell you that the Pro is really impressive.
We’ve had our eye on the MJ1048 and the latest electric scooters from Xiaomi for a while now and the 2019 update looks impressive.
Overall the new edition of the scooter has the same classic design as the original Xiaomi Mijia M365 but one look at every Xiaomi M365 Pro review and it will tell you that the new machine has a new-look dashboard and much more.

Here’s a closer look:

And a review from Geek Buying:

The new dash is billed as a ‘multi-functional control panel’ which will show six lots of data, including real-time speed, battery, distance, mode, etc. – lovers of the previous model, like us, will be pleased of this upgrade as the original M365 only displayed the power gauge and if a rider was in eco mode.

The new devices is also packing an impressive 47.4Wh lithium-ion battery, which claims an equally-impressive maximum mileage of 45km.
Lovers of the original M365 will note that the original has a 7800 mAh battery. This bigger batt may increase the range up to 45km (with one charge) but the weight has now shifted from 12.5kg to 14.2kg. 
Elsewhere the M365 Pro has an upgraded 300W wheel motor, which provides a max speed of 25km/h (15.5mph).
The M365 Pro now has three modes (energy saving mode, standard mode, sport mode) which can be toggled on/off by tapping the power switch twice.
Xiaomi have also included 8.5 inch rubber inflatable wheels for different terrain and the much-loved quick folding design has also returned.
