Xiaomi will unveil its first car prototype in August

Technically, this is not the first EV Xiaomi has put out. That would be the Xiaomi M365 electric scooter. There’s an “um, actually” fact to toss to your friends. Joking aside, the Chinese giant made a big commitment to the electric car market last year, pledging to invest $10 billion over the next ten years.Xiaomi will unveil its first car prototype in August

In the latest development on that front, company founder Lei Jun is expected to unveil the first EV prototype in August. That car is designed by HVST Automobile Design, responsible for the Maven concept car from WM Motor. After the unveiling takes place, the prototype is destined for further road testing, and we can potentially expect a Xiaomi car PR campaign to kick off.

Actual production cars are still some time off, though. The Xiaomi Auto manufacturing plant and R&D center will be built in Yizhuang, and the first actual cars are expected to leave its production line in 2024.
