(Pocket-lint) - If you've seen an electric scooter on the streets near you recently, there's a really good chance that it was made by Xiaomi - its scooters have been massively popular, so far.

That's with good reason - they're some of the best out there. Right now, there's also a hefty and rare discount on one of the newest and most impressive models, the Mi Electric Scooter Essential. 

You can get it from Amazon UK for £249.99, with £150 knocked off the regular price of £399.99. That's a chunky 38% off the price of a scooter that hasn't been out for very long at all.

It'll see you zooming around easily, with a maximum speed of 12mph and range of around 12 miles, making it one of the more reliable scooter choices out there right now.

It's also got the same design that Xiaomi's been refining for a couple of years, with dual braking and an anti-skid system to make sure you feel safe as you scoot. 

There are three driving modes, too, so that you can choose how fast you want to feel, in case you're looking for a more relaxed ride, which we think many users will welcome.
