Xiaomi’s first consumer electric vehicle will be a medium- to large-size sedan featuring HyperOS, its latest operating system. The car offers a spacious interior with an exterior comparable to the Porsche Taycan, positioning it with a starting price exceeding RMB 300,000 ($41,124). Car influencer Han Lu, a former senior director at the New York-listed car sales website Autohome, first shared this information on the Chinese Twitter-like platform Weibo on Monday. Although the post was later deleted, it has circulated on social media. The top-end version of the car might approach a price point of RMB 400,000, representing a significant achievement in Xiaomi’s new corporate strategy of building a comprehensive ecosystem spanning devices from smartphones to cars. Last month, Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known Apple analyst, predicted that the initial price of Xiaomi’s first car, set to be released next year, would be below RMB 300,000. Xiaomi did not respond to TechNode’s requests for comment.[TechNode reporting, a screenshot of Han Lu’s Weibo, in Chinese]
