Display: Both models come with a 7-inch display and new switchgear.
- FallSafe™: Detects a potential fall by monitoring speed and acceleration changes. Shuts off the motor and flashes indicator lights.
- Emergency Stop Signal: Activates when braking over 50 kmph, causing brake lights to blink as a warning.
Coasting Regen Feature (450S): Provides a steady slowdown without manual braking, recycles energy, and can increase the range by up to 7% depending on modes.
- 450S: A more affordable alternative, designed to be the company’s potential best seller due to reduced subsidies. It offers decent features but misses out on some that the 450X offers, like the Warp mode and a larger battery.
- 450X: Has a bigger battery and more features but comes at a higher price point.
The 450S is designed for those on a budget without compromising too much on features or aesthetics. If you’re looking for more features and have a higher budget, the 450X could be the better choice.
