With the passage of time we have seen Xiaomi launch all kinds of products onto the market thanks to Youpin, its third-party store: from sofas to a cap that can prevent you from going bald, among many others. However, there are several products from the Chinese company that are more successful than the rest, such as the kart that was launched in 2018 and that now, two years later, has a new version that is already on sale.
Here we tell you how the electric mini-kart that Xiaomi already sells and that stands out for reaching up to 37 kilometres per hour for just over 1,000 euros.
At the end of last May, Ninebot, Xiaomi’s ecological chain company, announced the new Ninebot Kart Pro. A karting vehicle that is currently only available for purchase in China through Youpin and stands out for its improved design, new features, and a higher price compared to its 2018 predecessor.

The Ninebot Gokart Pro is the new premium version of the well-known Xiaomi kart, which can also be disassembled and used as a self-balancing scooter and which is fully electric. Unlike the 2018 model, this new version sports a metallic grey colour that shouldn’t easily stain and features a standard steering rack and seat belt, headlights and other items are decorated in green.

Among its features, it uses a high-strength steel frame with an effective load of up to 100 kg thus providing better rigidity and resistance to possible impacts, it is equipped with a soft TPE anti-collision front edge and aerodynamically shaped TPE side skirts with better impact damping performance and driving safety.
