Xiaomi is all set to foray into the electric cars market, and we just got some fresh intel about the upcoming EV. Turns out the EV will pack in a beefy 101kWh battery.
According to MetaAuto (via MyFixGuide), a spy shot shows what battery the upcoming Xiaomi EV will be using. Named A13100, the battery puts a hefty 139.0Ah capacity and 726.7 voltage adding up to a 101.0kWh capacity on the house. All this in a package that weighs just 642kg. It does put it way above what Tesla Model 3’s battery pack weights but it’s literally half of what Xiaomi EV battery is capable of producing. Perhaps, there could be hundreds of things to know about the weight before we can judge, right?
Xiaomi’s EV has been in the news for quite some time and good reasons. It will be Xiaomi Motor’s debut in the business. Talking about the battery, little Birdie tells us Xiaomi is using a ternary lithium version but hey, take it with a pinch of salt given the fact that Xiaomi has largely been mum about this big project set to unveil early next year.
Moving on, Xiaomi is reportedly developing the chips and the major components required to keep the EV afloat. Using in-house components gives Xiaomi better control and quality while eliminating reliance on parts manufacturers.
Xiaomi’s founder and CEO Lei Jun confirmed that the EV has finished its winter tests and that the team is moving rapidly towards accomplishing its tasks faster than anticipated. The timeline that we could deduce based on the previous report is the first half of 2024 when Xiaomi could launch the EV to the market.
The company has already invested $433 million employing more than 2,300 people and will get another investment of $2.8 billion this year. There’s $14 billion worth of investment on its way in the next five years as per the reports. It is also because Xiaomi is working towards robotics and self-driving capabilities that could revolutionize the upcoming Xiaomi cars in the market.
