As road tests of Xiaomi’s vehicles become more frequent, the excitement surrounding the company’s entry into the electric vehicle (EV) industry is growing. The likelihood of spy shots also increases as more tests are carried out. A popular car blogger has recently posted the latest spy shots of Xiaomi’s future vehicle, which is still very much under wraps. In particular, he couldn’t help but notice the similarity to the Porsche Taycan.
The exterior of the car has some intriguing elements, according to leaked drawings. The sleek, through-beam LED headlights and dual streaming media rearview mirrors are planned for Xiaomi’s first fully electric vehicle. The body is styled as a fastback sports coupe with a prominent C-pillar position, similar to Porsche’s Panamera model. In addition, the rear of the car is rumored to feature LED tail lights.
Customers will be able to choose between an all-wheel-drive, dual-motor variant and a rear-drive, single-motor option for Xiaomi’s electric vehicle. For a reliable driving experience, both alternatives offer a maximum WLTC range of 800 km and 700 km respectively.
The fresh spy shots and pricing information have only added to the excitement surrounding the company’s entry into the EV market, as Xiaomi’s automotive business gathers pace. Xiaomi is well positioned to make a huge impact on the automotive sector thanks to Lei Jun’s continued commitment and the exciting features of their future electric vehicle.

Despite the rumors, new images on the net show that part of Xiaomi’s vehicle production in Beijing has already been completed and approved. This development is in line with what Xiaomi Group President Lu Weibing said during the company’s first-quarter earnings call. According to Lu Weibing, Xiaomi’s car production is going smoothly and has now entered the R&D acceleration phase. With the intention of launching the vehicle in the first half of next year, the company plans to conduct summer and winter tests this year to ensure thorough testing.
Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s CEO, made a firm commitment when he originally revealed the company’s entry into the automotive sector in March 2021, stating, “This is the last significant entrepreneurial initiative of my life. I’m willing to put my entire reputation on the line to personally lead the team in the battle for Xiaomi cars. In an earlier statement of commitment, Lei Jun emphasized the company’s determination to meet and exceed everyone’s expectations.
In keeping with Lei Jun’s promise, Xiaomi has officially announced the price range for its first all-electric car. Two types of the new vehicle are expected, with prices starting at 149,900 yuan ($20,877) for the regular version and 179,900 yuan ($25,056) for the Pro version. The new car is expected to go on sale in the second half of this year, and will face competition from the likes of the BYD Qin PLUS and AION S.
