Xiaomi’s debut into the electric vehicle (EV) market is progressing with its first car entering the fifth state of production line verification (PT5) last week at the Yizhuang factory. The focus this month is on producing 300 units of the Xiaomi SU7 EV, a significant increase from last month’s production target. Notably, Xiaomi is prioritizing stability in production over rapid output.

The development of Xiaomi’s EV, underway for several years, is expected to culminate in trial units by 2024. These units, however, are earmarked for display purposes in Xiaomi’s stores and showrooms across China, not for sale.

The manufacturer is actively engaged in debugging and system verification in preparation for its inaugural launch. A recent highlight includes resolving a system error through remote OTA updates. Xiaomi has also effectively addressed challenges like component distribution delays and assembly line disruptions.

Xiaomi’s EV roadmap features three models set for release over the next three years: the ‘Modena’ or ‘Xiaomi SU7’, ‘Le Mans’, and ‘Kunlun’. Our primary focus here is on the ‘Modena’, while ‘Kunlun’, a hybrid model, is currently in the design phase.

The ‘Modena’ and ‘Le Mans’ models are slated to be battery electric vehicles (BEVs), contrasting with ‘Kunlun’ which is anticipated to be either an extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) or a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), reflecting Xiaomi’s diverse approach to EV technology.
