Xiaomi EV spotted in China

Named Modena

Published

How do new cars get their first test runs on real roads? Common in the automotive space, prerelease vehicles often go on extensive tests on actual roads while disguised with non-revealing designs. As vehicles, electric vehicles are no different. A year ahead of their projected release date, Xiaomi and its first electric car have made surprise appearances in Chinese roads for test drives.

Reported by CarNewsChina (via ArenaEV), Xiaomi has reportedly unleased its unreleased electric vehicle in China. The timing of the tests foretell important tests for winter conditions, an important metric for vehicles in a country that gets its fair share of icy weather. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun reportedly participated in the tests himself.

All of the test vehicles were clothed in black fabric to obscure the final design. Spotters won’t be able to deduce much except from the outline. Speculations are already out and about, though.

The vehicle, codenamed Modena, will come with a variety of battery options including one from Chinese EV mainstay BYD. The battery will supposedly charge from empty to around 80 percent in just 15 minutes. It will also reportedly come with an unreleased automotive chipset from Qualcomm. It might ship with a price tag hovering between RMB 260,000 to RMB 350,000.

As with their first announcement back in 2021, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Modena sometime in 2024. Besides the first vehicle, the company is also working on another vehicle codenamed Lemans.
