Let's find out!
Let's First Get to Know Qiewa Company
Why Should You Buy Qiewa Electric Scooter?
Enough Power for any Conditions
Qiewa scooters are geared up with powerful 500w+ motors which won’t fail you in the city and even in the off-road conditions. Their models can be folded in 3 seconds and housed in the car or in the office. You can easily carry it out and take with you on a trip.
Not Many Brands Offer Such Safety Features
Qiewa scooters come with electronic remote control, so your kids won’t be able to ride it without you. After all, it is not a kid's electric scooter. If someone tries to steal it, the anti-theft alarm sounds very loud which is practical for you and not for the thief!
Above Average Mile Range and Weight Capacity
Both Qiewa electric scooters are equipped with a minimum of 30-mile range. Weight capacity is as impressive as the range of the scooter. The smaller model (Qiewa Q mini) comes with 520 lbs capacity and the bigger model has an impressive 550 lbs capacity.
There is One Downside…
These two models aren’t light. Each of them is not lighter than 45 lbs, so they aren’t made to be carried. You can fold them and put in the car, under the stairs or in your office.
Note that it is normal with this amount of power for these scooters to be on the heavy side.
Now let's talk about Q1Hummer and Q-Mini in greater details
Qiewa Electric Scooter Q1Hummer Review
Just How Powerful is the Q1 Hummer Electric Scooter?
It’s pretty obvious that this q1 hummer is a powerful scooter and to ensure that power is put to good use, it comes with strong shock absorbers. With such shocks in place, you can comfortably zoom past the competition with ease even when bumps and potholes are involved.
We also do like the fact that this q1 hummer machine, despite being fully electric, can be used in different kinds of weather. That’s precisely because of its IP6 waterproof rating. So, even if it’s on a rainy day, you can fully rely on the q1 hummer electric scooter to take you to work on the other side of town.
And the best part is that the q1 hummer electric scooter also comes with splash guards. These come in handy in protecting you when it’s raining.
We also do really like just how stable this q1 hummer electric scooter is. It seems that the engineers have balanced its weight quite well and also done everything possible to achieve the highest safety standards possible. Indeed, it’s even possible to zig-zag through cars in traffic on your way home with this.
And for extra convenience, like other popular scooters such as the Gotrax GXL V2, the Q1 hummer electric scooter is foldable. In fact, you won’t need more than 10 seconds to fold it up and pack it up. So, if user-friendliness is what you are after, this particular scooter seems to have all your crucial needs well taken care of.
See Q1Hummer in Action
This Q1 hummer electric scooter is a powerful machine that excels at both urban and off-road terrain. Its huge size and weight, however, make it less ideal for kids. It’s best suited for folks aged 16 and above.
The Q1 hummer electric scooter 800-watt motor is quite powerful and reliable. On a full recharge, it can provide you with a 65-mile max drive distance so a great motor for everyday commute and powerful for a weekend off-road adventure. One thing we really like about this motor is that it’s a heavy-duty one. And although it still requires a bit of maintenance, you don’t have to worry about it every other day because it’s really well-built.
This Q1 hummer electric scooter has pneumatic tires for a much smoother ride on demanding terrain. It is reasonably heavy, it weighs around 55 pounds, but it can be folded quickly for easy storing in the trunk of your car or under the stairs of your home.
The overall heavy-duty look is because of the aluminum construction which can handle 550 lbs of weight.
The battery ensures 25-30 miles of heavy throttle range or up to 60 miles if you ride slowly. There are three gears. Gear one is for a leisure ride, in gear 2 it goes to about 15 mph (fast enough for a bike lane) and in gear 3 you will be able to go 35+ mph.
You don’t have to worry about braking because this Qiewa Hummer scooter comes with dual disc brakes. Also, it is equipped with dual shock absorbents for a smooth ride even on bad terrain. That’s in addition to the 10-inch pneumatic tires which are perfectly made for all-terrain.
The full suspension, headlights, taillights, and side lights make this scooter safe for you to ride at night. This scooter Hummer has a keyless start with the alarm system so you can be sure it’s protected when you are not around.
The scooter feels quite heavy but in a good way. It has a pretty solid frame and the extra pounds don’t seem to compromise its performance. In the past, we have seen manufacturers struggling to strike a balance between performance and weight but to this end, the Qiewa team seems to have done a good job.
The monstrous motor provides the entire system with the power it needs to provide a stable ride. What’s more? It’s powered by a dependable 18650 lithium-ion battery which besides being powerful is also adequately protected from overheating. If you want to keep an eye on the speed, you can check it out on the display attached to the handlebar. You can also check the battery status and as a bonus charge your phone.
- 26Ah Lithium-Ion Battery
Designed to provide up to 62 miles (100 kilometers) drive distance power, this battery is quite impressive. Of course, the capacity of the battery may reduce depending on the weight of the user and the nature of the terrain used. The manufacturer provides a fairly decent 12-month warranty for the battery which is particularly important for the rider’s peace of mind.
On the flipside, though, the battery takes up to 12 hours to recharge. That’s quite long but perfectly understandable given its huge capacity.
- User-Friendly LCD Screen
We really like the fact that this qiewa q1 hummer comes with an easy-to-use backlit LCD screen. Within the screen, you can access all the essential data ranging from the speed and distance covered. The best part is that the screen also displays the remaining battery life. The screen is, however quite basic and may not impress anyone looking for fancy and intuitive stuff.
- Dual Disc Brake System
As any good Qiewa Q1Hummer review will tell you, brakes are perhaps the most important safety feature for any form of motorized transport, including this one. Cheap scooters use drum brakes which, unfortunately, are quite poor at dissipating heat and, therefore, tend to fade fast.
Fortunately, the Qiewa Q1 Hummer comes with the more advanced disc brakes. These have powerful stopping power and also tend to last quite long. They are also quite valuable and typically cost more than drum brakes.
- Anti-Theft Alarm
With the rising levels of crime, it’s important to protect your precious assets at all costs. An anti-theft alarm is an easy way to send a signal whenever a malicious person tries to tamper with your rig. Indeed, we are glad to see that this unit comes with a built-in anti-theft alarm system. We’re also glad that this system works quite well and is loud.
- 3 Speed Modes
Whether you want a high-speed drive, moderate speed or simply wish to cruise around leisurely, the Qiewa Q1Hummer 800watt electric scooter gives you that freedom. You simply need to switch to the preferred mode in more or less the same way you’d switch gears when riding a mountain bike. Each one of these modes provides you with a unique riding experience.
- Adequate Lighting
Lights are quite important for increased visibility. This scooter packs two headlights and one tail light. The LED lights come in handy when it’s foggy or when it’s getting dark.
- Pneumatic Tires
These are tubed tires that are made from PVC natural rubber. They come complete with sidewall and tread rubber. For extra power, they feature a carcass steel wire layer along with thick shoulder pads made from plastic.

Qiewa Electric Scooter Qmini Review
Qiew Qmini electric scooter is fast and strong with a surprising amount of power packed into this small scooter. The 500W motor can reach the top speed of 30 mph, which is faster than any similar size folding scooter. The weight capacity is as impressive as the range – this mini scooter can handle around 520 lbs of weight.
The lithium battery has enough power for traveling up to 37 miles, but you have to be aware that it takes 8-12 hours for a full charge. That shouldn’t be a problem if you plan to charge it during the night. It should be at 100% charge first thing in the morning.
There are three gears on this scooter and in third gear, you must always wear a helmet and preferably a set of pads. That is obligatory especially if you buy this scooter for your teenager. You can use it for a small off-road adventure thanks to the dual shocks suspension and the 8-inch solid tires.
If you get caught in the rain during the ride you don’t have to worry about the scooter getting wet because it was built to handle a small amount of water. Just don’t stay too long in the rain and don’t ride over deep puddles.
The anti-theft feature we have mentioned above is also part of this scooter. It is a small remote that allows you to lock the scooter so only you can ride it. If someone tries to steal it, the alarm will sound a very loud noise.
Q-mini is packed with features that make it safe, but also stylish. One of the most important features is headlights and tail lights which will provide you with better visibility during a night rides. There is also a set of blinking, multi-color LEDs along side the scooter.
