Xiaomi has already made a prototype for its first car. It will be displayed at an August event by the Chinese giant.
Also, it should be noted that this is a prototype road vehicle, so Xiaomi will begin testing, including winter trials, after the presentation. Xiaomi will also launch an advertising campaign after the presentation. The company has already hired a PR Manager for this.
The launch of the car is also imminent – it is planned for 2024. Yizhuang will host a car manufacturing plant. The plant will produce 300,000 cars annually, but it will only be able to make 150,000 cars in the initial stage. It is not clear what the company’s immediate plans will be, as there is a global shortage of car chips and issues with batteries.
The source also shared details about the cars. Xiaomi is said to be bringing four models to market. They will all belong to classes A+ and B, which is small cars. It is not known if there will be crossovers.
It is well-known that A+ models will cost between 22,200 and 29,000 dollars, while B models will run from 30,000 to 44,000 dollars.
