The Chinese tech giant has a tailored method of welcoming the new dawn with an announcement of its unprecedented venture into electric car manufacturing. It has been an exceptional odyssey for the brand since its initial announcement about delving into the EV business.

To make the final days of this year exceptionally distinctive, the Chinese mobile maker has now officially unveiled an end-of-year event solely destined to discuss various aspects of its upcoming electric vehicles. Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, used X (previously known as Twitter) on Christmas Day to unearth the Xiaomi EV Technology launch event.

The event is to be held on December 28 at 2:00 PM Beijing Time (11:30 AM IST). Moreover, the digital stream of the launch event will be showcased on Xiaomi’s official YouTube channel. It is worth mentioning that the event will not include any introduction of new products; rather, it will delve into technology and how it might work if the brand puts it into action.

It’s worth noting that Xiaomi has unveiled its first-ever electric vehicle, the SU7, in China. The SU7, an electric sedan, is presented in two versions: one potentially equipped with Lidar and the other without, as per HT Auto’s report. Buyers can select between two powertrain options: Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD). The electric sedan will be offered in three distinct models upon its launch: SU7, SU7 Pro, and SU7 Max.

In the RWD model, a single electric motor will be positioned on the rear axle, generating 295 bhp. On the other hand, the AWD version will boast a more powerful output of 663 bhp. The AWD drivetrain setup includes a 295 bhp electric motor on the front axle and a 368 bhp electric motor on the rear axle.

For the more economical trims, there will be LFP battery packs sourced from BYD, while the higher-end variants with larger battery packs will feature NMC battery packs from CATL. Due to the substantial weight of the battery, electric cars tend to be on the heavier side, and the Xiaomi SU7 reflects this with a curb weight of 1,980 kg for the base models and 2,205 kg for the top-tier trim. The lower variants will achieve a top speed of 210 kmph, while the higher-end models will reach 265 kmph.
