The Electric Scooter 4 Ultra is the best that Xiaomi has to offer consumers in the electric scooter segment. This model combines power and stability that comes with a price above what the brand is used to in Portugal: €1039.99 (€799.99 on sale). Is it worth it?
I had the opportunity to test this model for three weeks, and used it for some more or less long rides. Despite its points for improvement listed below, I can tell you that I was simply amazed overall. Shall we get to know her better?

Unboxing and assembly Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra
When opening the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra box, you immediately notice the care with which the scooter is packaged. Assembly is quite simple and intuitive, simply fixing the handlebars with four screws. In just a few minutes, you’re ready to start exploring the streets with this electric machine.
What is the construction, design and weight of the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra
At 24.5 kg, the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra is not the lightest on the market, but this weight translates into notable power and stability. The robust construction and sober but elegant design convey confidence and durability.
Aluminum predominates, meaning it is a scooter that provides a feeling of robustness. However, a small detail to improve is the tab that holds the handlebars when folded, which in the test unit showed weaknesses, which made it easily come loose during manual transport.
What it’s like to drive the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra
Driving this scooter is a magnificent experience, characterized by the stability provided by the double suspension. Unlike other scooters without this feature, we feel like we can tackle more winding roads without fear.
The powerful 940 W motor makes it the ideal companion for city scenes with hills, such as those in Lisbon, allowing you to overcome slopes of up to 25%.
In S+ mode, the start is vigorous, so it is ideal for those who have to be quick daily at traffic lights, for example. Braking proved to be quite efficient, and there is the possibility of adjusting the intensity of generative braking through the app.
The lights do their job, illuminating the path ahead and behind enough to make you seen. Furthermore, if you brake, the rear light flashes to warn other drivers.
However, the absence of turn signals is a point to improve, considering that we find them on cheaper models. The bell is quite audible and the throttle is in a good position. The deck is spacious enough to place your feet in whatever way is most comfortable for you.
- S+ mode: 5-25km/h
- Sport mode: 5-25km/h
- Normal mode: 5-20km/h
- Pedestrian mode: 5-6km/h
What is the autonomy of the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra
The promise of a range of up to 70 km may be optimistic, and these are numbers that you would only have under ideal conditions in minimum mode. In practice, the scooter never ceases to surprise by easily offering between 40 and 45 km of autonomy under realistic conditions of use.
This means that it can be used daily and without compromises for anyone who needs to travel that distance before charging again. The charging time of just over 6 hours is reasonable considering the battery capacity. The charger provides a maximum power of 124 W.
What the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra screen looks like
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra’s screen is functional, showing basic information such as speed and battery level. However, for a scooter in this price range, you would expect a little more detail and shine on the panel. There is a concern in providing something minimalist in this field, but with a lot of sun it is difficult to see.
A nice touch is the inclusion of an app where you can change some of the scooter’s parameters. You can do this through Xiaomi Home, to lock the scooter when parking, set an alarm or change the generative braking levels.
Conclusion about Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Ultra is a solid option for those looking for electric mobility with power and stability. Despite some details that need to be improved, such as the lever for holding the folding handlebars and the absence of indicators, the driving experience, superior range and robust construction make it an excellent choice.
The price of €1039.99 reflects the investment in a scooter that promises to transform your urban trips into a stylish electric adventure. At the date of writing, it is promotional value of €799.99 at Xiaomi Store Portugalwith a free helmet.
