To share :
Xiaomi’s electric car leaked on Chinese social media! After several months of speculation, we finally know what it will look like (probably). A little Tesla, a little Aston Martin and here is the result!
Xiaomi’s first electric car is coming soon!
We’ve been waiting for news of Xiaomi’s first electric car for quite some time now. The Chinese tech giant has long sought to market a vehicle, and even showed off some of the technologies it hopes to incorporate at one of its own events last summer. At the time, the image presented was that of a large sedan, with the dimensions and shape of a luxury car. But the rumors that have been circulating for some time suggest that Xiaomi would ultimately not aim for this market share.
Although there is nothing official yet, there is talk ofa car that would be worth around 100,000 yuan (= 12,500€) and which could go up to 300,000 yuan depending on the technologies or options selected. And if questions still arise about its price, a post Weibo may have answered all questions about the design of this future car.
Xiaomi MS11 : entre Tesla Model 3 et Aston Martin
As we explained to you above, there had been talk of the possibility that Xiaomi’s car would arrive in the form of an SUV or a sedan. During the few tests in town and in Inner Mongolia (region of China), where the car had been put to the test of the cold, the bodywork that had been revealed left little room for doubt. The Xiaomi electric car will be a sedan. A class that many automakers have adopted for their electric cars – the Tesla Model 3 is just one example among many.

As a user reveals on Weibo (Chinese social network), the Xiaomi MS11 will therefore indeed be a sedan that will come in the form of a coupe – an option that some manufacturers choose to improve the electric capacities of their vehicle. On this video, we can also see some details of the bodywork, especially at the level rear lights that are reminiscent of those of the Aston Martin DB11. The most picky will also notice the presence of a LiDAR sensor, which sets the tone for Xiaomi’s ambitions for autonomous driving. This summer, there was talk of the possibility of having a fully autonomous robotaxi, for which LiDAR could be an asset. The problem ? This sensor is not particularly cheap.
For the moment, Xiaomi’s intention is to market this vehicle in 2024. And if this trend is confirmed, we should therefore learn about this MS11 very soon. Were the leaks reliable? What power ? What price ? These are questions that will not remain unanswered for long.
