As we can see in the leaked drawing, the front bumpers of the Xiaomi Modena is looks modest, with small imitations of side vents and an air intake in the middle. Recall that even if electric vehicles do not have an internal combustion engine under the hood, they need an air intake for battery thermoregulation and climate control.

Similar to the look of many electric vehicles, the Xiaomi Modena does not have a front grille. It will also have a pair of oval headlights.

As for the rear bumper, it also has imitation side air ducts. Its shape is also simple and aerodynamic. In addition, the rear bumper does not have any interesting details.
