Xiaomi has officially unveiled the SU7, the company's first electric vehicle, marking its entry into the rapidly expanding sector. The 'SU', stands for Speed Ultra, and the car will be debuted in China in 2024, with dual-motor all-wheel-drive SU7 Max and single-motor rear-wheel-drive SU7 models.

Xiaomi SU7: Design and Dimensions

The Xiaomi SU7 is a four-door electric sedan with a length of 4,997 mm, a width of 1,963 mm, and a height of up to 1,455 mm. The EV has a wheelbase of 3,000 mm.

The powerful headlamps up front appear to be inspired by McLaren supercars. Slender wraparound taillights connected by an LED light bar characterize the rear. An active rear wing and lidar sensors are standard on higher model levels. Its 19- and 20-inch wheels add to its athletic posture.

All in all, the Xiaomi SU7 looks like a mix between the Porsche Taycan and the McLaren 750S.

Xiaomi SU7: Powertrain and Battery

The Xiaomi SU7 entry-level model will include a 73.6 kWh battery pack. The top-tier model will have a bigger 101 kWh battery pack. Xiaomi created its own CTB (Cell-to-Body) technology, which integrates the battery into the car, boosting structure stiffness, removing the floor, and lowering the height for a more roomy cabin.

According to the EV manufacturer, the SU7 will have a range of up to 800 kilometres on a single charge. The power output is rated as 300PS for the base model while the top-variant will have over 650PS. The maximum torque output is 635Nm. The lesser variant has a top speed of 210 kmph, while the higher variants' top speed is 265 kmph.

Xiaomi SU7: Interior and Features

The Xiaomi SU7 will come with the all-new HyperOS, Xiaomi's own operating system that intends to connect the company's whole fleet of gadgets - and now automobiles. The OS should make connecting your devices with the SU7 a breeze, especially if you have other Xiaomi hardware.

A 16.1-inch 3K centre screen, optional Xiaomi Pad tablets, and 23 internal Dolby Atmos speakers round out most of the entertainment systems in the vehicle. In terms of self-driving, the Xiaomi Pilot platform is powered by up to two NVIDIA Drive Orin CPUs and a slew of sensors.

Xiaomi will also include self-parking and other autonomous driving technologies. It employs high-resolution cameras, Lidar, ultrasonic, and radar technology. According to Lei, Xiaomi automobiles' autonomous driving skills will be at the forefront of the industry.
