We have new information regarding the first electric car from Xiaomi. The Chinese manufacturer is currently testing up to 140 such vehicles, while more than 2 people work on it.
Already last month, we could glimpse that Xiaomi is testing its electric car in winter conditions, and that everything is overseen by Lei Jun himself, who has a passion for sports cars.
We could even see the leaked drawings of the exterior design of the electric car with the marking Xiaomi MS11. From the designs of the time, the model resembles the popular Tesla Model 3.
Lei Jun himself wants to develop electric car with perfect software, which is supposed to stand out as the MIUI 14 build on its smartphones. Infotainment should be different from that in Tesla.
We will see it in 2024
In addition, he informed the shareholders that he is currently working on this electric car more than 2 people. It should arrive in the final production in 2024, while currently Xiaomi tests 140 cars.
The huge factory for its production is still under construction, while it should gradually reach production of up to 300 cars a year. In addition to production, this building will also house the sales department as well as research and development.
The goal is clear: to make Xiaomi cars the market leader. It will probably only be about the domestic Chinese market at first, then it remains to be seen whether Xiaomi will decide to enter the global market with this product.
There is a lot of money involved in the project
Lei Jun spent a lot of money on the electric car project itself, specifically, it should amount to more than a billion euros. In the course of the next years, the investment in this sector is also expected to increase.
If everything goes according to plan, Lei Jun could present us with the final design of his first car already this year. We are also interested in how this electric car will look in the interior.
