- Xiaomi is said to have its own plans for an electric car.
- So far, little information is known on the subject.
- Tesla CEO Elon Musk in particular could have been the inspiration here.
In the technical area there is de facto nothing that Xiaomi does not build. Whether cell phones, laptops, televisions or vacuum cleaners: the manufacturer has a hand in almost every segment. A report from iFengNews from China is now suggesting that the Chinese high-tech company is now also planning its own electric car.
According to the report, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun met twice with Tesla boss Elon Musk in 2013 during a visit to the USA. The interest in the industry should also have grown. The speculated electric car should also be created under the leadership of the Xiaomi founder. Besides Xiaomi will also Apple with its own electric car connected, but this has not yet been confirmed.
There is also no information about the supposed “Mi Car” or an official confirmation of the development. The information about this comes from a person “who is familiar with the matter”. Xiaomi is not the only Chinese cell phone manufacturer trying to get into the automotive industry. Last also posed Huawei a complete system for e-cars in front.
