The factory where Xiaomi cars will be produced, build in the city of Yizhuang, southeast of Beijing.
The CEO of Xiaomi did not give any other details besides the fact that the Xiaomi EV is “ahead of schedule”. Nonetheless, Xiaomi’s stock quotes were up more than 5% amid this announcement.
In March, Xiaomi’s board of directors approved entry into the automotive market, and in September the company announced the registration of a subsidiary of Xiaomi EV Company Limited with a registered capital of $ 10 billion yuan ($ 1.55 billion). Earlier Xiaomi bought for $ 77.37 million autonomous driving technology developer Deepmotion Tech.
Well, now we know when Xiaomi is going to launch its first light electric vehicle. Now you can start guessing what it will be like. Interestingly, Xiaomi announced a rough timeline the day after Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) announced a line of three electric concept cars.
