The Mi Qicycle is an exceptionally engineered and designed foldable e-bike that marks only the latest venture of Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi into the e-bike sphere, following hot on the heels of the release of the Qicycle R1 smart bike.

This particular foldable e-bike comes fully powered by a lithium-ion Panasonic battery pack that is used to direct energy to the 250-Watt motor. A high-tech, proprietary battery system is used to convey information to a companion smartphone app that users can use to stay on top of battery status and statistics. The e-bike offers a range of around 45 km, while a three-speed Shimano Nexus gear hub can be used if the battery is flat-out dead.

This foldable e-bike is an excellent option for so-called 'last mile' transportation in urban settings thanks to its range and portability.
