Xiaomi to unveil its first car prototype in August
Technically, this is not the first electric vehicle (EV) Xiaomi has showcased, talking about the Xiaomi M365 electric scooter. The Chinese tech giant is really committed to hit the automobile market with powerful punch. Xiaomi made a big commitment to the electric car market last year, pledging to invest $10 billion over the next ten years.
In the latest development on that front, company founder Lei Jun is expected to unveil the first EV prototype in August. That car is designed by HVST Automobile Design, responsible for the Maven concept car from WM Motor. After the unveiling takes place, the prototype is destined for further road testing, and we can potentially expect a Xiaomi car PR campaign to kick off.
Actual production cars are still some time off, though. The Xiaomi Auto manufacturing plant and R&D center will be built in Yizhuang, and the first actual cars are expected to leave its production line in 2024.
