The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 edition scooter costs EUR 799 (about RM3,933) which is significantly more expensive than the standard Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 which retails for EUR 499 (about RM2,456). For the extra premium, the scooter features the Mercedes-AMG Petronas black and silver colour scheme along with green accents.

The scooter is powered by a brushless DC motor (600W max) that can do a top speed of 25km/h and can tackle 20% incline slopes. The 12,400mAh battery is rated to deliver 45km range on a single charge and it claims to hold above 70% power after 500 charging cycles. According to the spec-sheet, a full charge will take 8-9 hours.

Similar to the standard model, you also get a high-brightness headlight and a double braking system that uses ventilated disc brake and eABS regenerative anti-lock brake. The handle has a small digital display that shows the speed and battery level, and you can also manage it via your smartphone.

It uses shock-absorbing 8.5″ pneumatic tires for a comfortable ride and it can be folded for easy storage and transport. For better visibility at night, the scooter also has reflectors on the front, rear and sides.
