Xiaomi is currently one of the leading brands in the smartphone and home appliances segment. The China-based brand offers a good blend of features and affordability and has thus made its place among the top 5 leading brands across the globe, the other 4 being Apple, Samsung, Oppo, and Vivo. Now, Xiaomi has been wanting to give a tough fight to Elon Musk’s Tesla by becoming a stiff competitor in the EV industry. The brand has been working on its first EV for a while now and the date for the unveiling of Xiaomi’s EV tech has also been confirmed.

Xiaomi’s official handle took to X (formerly Twitter) to announce that Xiaomi will showcase its EV technology on December 28, 2023, at 11:30 AM IST. The company is calling it ‘The Stride’ event wherein EV technology will be shown off but no actual products will be launched. The poster shows a chassis of a car with the word ‘STRIDE’ written on it. Here is the post announcing the event.

Xiaomi EV: What has gone behind it?

In March 2021, Xiaomi announced that it will invest 10 times more than all its competitors in the EV space to make quality smart electric vehicles. The company received state approval to make EVs in August 2021 and in November 2021, BAIC group claimed that they will be working on Xiaomi’s first cars.

Xiaomi’s founder Lei Jun talked about foraying into the EV space quite a few times. He claimed that Xiaomi has given a 10 billion RMB budget and 3400 engineers to perfect its prototype. Talking about the kind of EVs Xiaomi aims to make, he said that the company is hoping to combine elements of traditional automobiles and consumer electronics industries to make perfect EVs. At times while he has accepted that Xiaomi’s EVs might not get the desired traction in the Chinese market, other times he has been worried that the company might not be able to keep up with the demand leading to a two-year wait time for consumers. If that isn’t being super confident about one’s product, what is?
