When one thinks of Xiaomi, the first thing that comes to mind is smartphones. Although the Chinese tech giant majorly masters in consumer electronic devices, it has had a history of bringing out new products completely different from its mainstream offerings ranging from lifestyle to home appliances. In line with a growing trend regarding EVs, back in 2021, Xiaomi had announced its plans to further diversify its portfolio by trying its hands at the electric car space with a plan to invest USD 10 billion over the next 10 years. That has now resulted in the conceptualisation of the SU7 – Xiaomi’s first electric car – which will be offered in two variants: SU7 and SU7 Max.

The SU7’s Design

Bucking the trend of SUVs and crossovers, the Xiaomi SU7 is an electric sedan. Its low-slung design will remind you of other, already produced electric sedans such as the Hyundai Ioniq 6, Porsche Taycan, and Tesla Model 3. Exterior highlights include teardrop-shaped LED headlights, a pop-up rear spoiler, up to 20-inch alloy wheels, connected LED taillights, and sporty bumpers.

Interior And Feature Details

Although the tech brand hasn’t showcased the physical cabin of its electric car, previous international spy shots and renders suggested that it offers a minimalist cabin made up of a 3-spoke steering wheel and two digital displays with no cluttered control panels. Its cabin is likely to have different themes (possibly between red, white, and black and grey) based on the variant chosen.

Features on board the SU7 include a 16.1-inch free-floating touchscreen system, a 25-speaker music system, and a 56-inch heads-up display. Xiaomi has also provided it with connected car tech, rear entertainment displays, front and rear parking sensors, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
