Xiaomi’s Second EV to Challenge Tesla Model Y

Chinese tech giant Xiaomi is riding high on the remarkable success of its inaugural electric vehicle, the SU7. As previously reported, the company has embarked on the development of a second electric vehicle. Multiple sources have confirmed that the smartphone manufacturer is working on a compact electric SUV. Bloomberg (paywalled) is the latest reputable outlet to shed light on this new development.

The Xiaomi SU7 electric sedan made a significant impact when it launched in China last year. Following its reveal, Xiaomi received over 50,000 orders within the first 30 minutes of its availability. Xiaomi Automotive reported that around 10,000 units of the SU7 were produced within the first 32 days of manufacturing. The Xiaomi sub-brand is on target to deliver 100,000 units of the SU7 by the end of the year.

Impressive Features

The Xiaomi SU7 boasts a sophisticated infotainment system featuring a 16.1-inch 3K central console and a 56-inch head-up display. It also includes Snapdragon-based infotainment software with advanced AI capabilities that learn driver and passenger behaviors. The SU7 offers seamless integration with Xiaomi smartphones and other smart devices.

New Model Development

A recent Bloomberg report indicates that Xiaomi is working on a new model in the form of a compact SUV. According to the report, Xiaomi has benchmarked this upcoming model against the Tesla Model Y, a claim supported by other sources. While specific details on the general specifications, battery setup, and onboard technology have not been disclosed yet, it is anticipated that the new compact SUV will build on the innovative features of the SU7, especially its cutting-edge infotainment system.

Xiaomi continues to make strides in the electric vehicle market and expects further advancements with the introduction of its second model. This new model is projected to be released by 2025 at the earliest. Additionally, Xiaomi plans to expand its production capacity beyond the current 10,000 units per month, aiming to deliver up to 300,000 units per year.
