From the screen to the steering wheel: Xiaomi presents its revolutionary electric car

In the constant search for a revolution in electric mobility, Xiaomi, known for its innovative mobile devices, ventures into the world of electric cars with its latest project, the Xiaomi SU7. Although it has not yet been officially unveiled, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has provided a glimpse through interesting images and details.

The new Xiaomi SU7 aims to take on the renowned Tesla Model 3 and thus marks the company’s entry into the competitive electric vehicle market. This all-electric sedan will be manufactured by Chinese automotive giant BAIC (Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co.).

Innovative design that leaves a mark

The first pictures reveal a sporty and elegant design that tries to attract electric mobility lovers. With a sharp and futuristic front end, pronounced wheel arches and straight handles, the SU7 promises to stand out in terms of style.

At the back, there are elements already known from the world of electric cars, such as the taillights connected by an LED light strip. However, Xiaomi adds a distinctive touch with two fake exhaust outlets that suggest a sporty intent when viewed from the rear of the vehicle.

Dimensions and remarkable features

MIIT has revealed that the wheelbase of the SU7 will be three meters, which will provide plenty of interior livability. With this measure, it exceeds the 2.87 meters of the Tesla Model 3 and offers passengers a more spacious experience.

The vehicle will be equipped with 19- or 20-inch wheels and will optionally have a lidar sensor in the windshield for advanced driver assistance functions.

Performance and variants

Xiaomi SU7 will be launched in two different versions. The first with a 299 HP engine and rear-wheel drive, capable of reaching speeds of up to 210 km/h. The second, more powerful one, will feature two engines, four-wheel drive and an impressive 673 HP that will allow it to reach speeds of up to 265 km/h. This more powerful version will weigh 2.66 tons and will likely use BYD-branded batteries.

Although details of the lineup with both engines have yet to be announced, the SU7 will offer three trim levels: SU7, SU7 Pro and SU7 Max, along with a special variant called the Founders Edition.

Software upgrade and release date

The vehicle will feature infotainment software based on Xiaomi HyperOS, an in-house operating system that has proven itself on mobile devices and is now expanding into smart vehicles.

Sales of the Xiaomi SU7 are set to begin at the end of the year in China, and this electric sedan is expected to not only compete with performance, but also set new standards in the electric vehicle segment globally. Xiaomi’s bet promises to be an exciting chapter in the evolution of electric mobility.
