his electric car is presented next month

Xiaomi already has its electric car

And it is that for a moment, Xiaomi is working on an ambitious project that aims to conquer a new market niche: the automotive sector. Last March, the company specializing in the production of smartphones and smart devices announced the creation of a specific independent department focused on the development of electric cars.

A strategy which, as they saved it then, will be supported by a big investment of 10,000 million dollars over the next 10 years. And now, months after that announcement, the Chinese brand has confirmed that the close to august will be the date of the presentation of its first electrified car, a revolutionary prototype house brand that promises to attract the attention of more than one.

In any case, as we had glimpsed months ago, the long-awaited car that will be released next month does not have to be either. advance forms of a specific model, but it could well just be a full-size model responsible for advancing the technology and design of models that later hit the market. But what do we know about him?

What do we know about him

We talk about what will be the first prototype electric car from Xiaomi, which will be designed by HVST Automobile Design. For those who don’t know, it’s the same company that designed the WM Motor Maven concept car, which promised to achieve great speed, acceleration and distance capable of traveling, hoping up to 800 km .

It is important to know that once the Xiaomi electric car is presented, the prototype will start with a series of tests in order to start the entire marketing campaign a posteriori and thus launch it soon; that is to say, we are going to know all the details of this prototype when it hits the streets.

Xiaomi electric car what do we know

Among the details that were revealed by the founder of the brand, Lei Jun, the possible price of future vehicles was known. In China, the vehicle will sell for between 100,000 and 300,000 Chinese yuan (between 14,000 and 43,000 euros). Obviously, the manufacturer will offer different finishes and options that can raise or lower the price.

What we don’t know yet is whether Xiaomi will join forces with an automotive partner to give birth to this project or, on the contrary, will work independently.

It will be necessary to wait until 2024 to acquire them

This, yes; despite the fact that the tech company (which also makes electric scooters, bicycles and mopeds) has registered different brands, such as Xiaomi Auto or Xiaomi Automobile, the name under which it will market its car is still unknown, even if it will have its own dealer network. In fact, it is possible that, as happens in mobile phones, the brand takes on different names in different countries.

Although this model is presented next August, we would have to wait until 2024 to see the first models in production, where it is expected to reach 150,000 units per year. Xiaomi’s goal is to reach 300,000 cars per year once its factories and production reach full capacity.

If we talk about its purely technological capabilities, there is nothing confirmed yet, but the Chinese is already part of the CCC association, so it is to be expected that the options in terms of connectivity is very high. It even opens up the possibility of having Android Automotive.

However, it should be mentioned that it is the firmer project in the race that the big tech companies are maintaining to prevail in the automotive industry as well. As such, the Chinese giant aims to conquer the mid-range, before other brands like Sony, which aims to beat Tesla in the elite segments. Meanwhile, in the case of the aforementioned Apple Car, what we know today is that it still doesn’t have anyone to manufacture its electrified model.
