The Xiaomi Modena, code-named MS11, is considered more affordable than the Tesla Model S, an electric car that Xiaomi hopes to launch in China’s EV space.

As of last year, the company had invested more than 3 billion yuan (about 433 million U.S. dollars) in its car research and development, of which more than 2,300 yuan was used for research and development. The company has established its own manufacturing plant in Beijing, the capital of China. He also plans to build a separate factory to build upcoming models. The plant is expected to produce about 300,000 vehicles a year. The first model is expected to roll off the assembly line and be in production by 2024.

Xiaomi’s first electric car takes design cues from BYD’s Seal electric sedan, which was recently shown at the 2023 Auto Expo. It has also been influenced by other well-known global models. The four-door electric sedan has sleek lines and an aerodynamic profile. The LED lights on the front of the car present a trident shape, giving people a domineering feeling. It’s similar to a McLaren 720S.

Mi MS11 has a large windshield, as well as a rather spacious side glass area. It also has a panoramic sunroof that extends to the rear. It has the Xiaomi logo in the center of the wheel and is fitted with yellow Brembo brake calipers. There’s also a LiDAR sensor on top of the windshield. The car has wide rear arches, and the cabin tapers slightly at the rear. The taillights have a similar design to that of an Aston Martin.

The Xiaomi MS11 electric car will be equipped with a self-developed motor, and the battery will be provided by CATL and BYD. The company has long boasted a range of 1,000 kilometers on a single charge. Whether it sticks to that number remains to be seen. Electric vehicles may be equipped with an 800-volt system that produces around 260 kilowatts of power.
