However, what's impressive about the new electric scooter from the electronics manufacturer is its price. The Xiaomi Ninebot C30 was offered in the Chinese market with an introductory price of 2,000 yuan (equivalent to around Rs 21,300 with the current exchange rates).

This price has since then been increased to 3599 yuan, equivalent to around Rs 38,500, exclusive of taxes. However, this still makes it one of the most affordable electric scooters, less expensive than even some mid-range smartphones in the market.

The Xiaomi Ninebot C30 electric scooter is a low-range model which comes with a top speed of just 25km/h. The electric scooter does not require any sort of licence or registration to ride.

The battery itself on the Ninebot C30 is removable and weighs in at just 6kg. The batteries offer a maximum range of 35km on a full charge, making it perfectly suited for last-mile connectivity, especially in large metros.
