There have been rumors that Xiaomi will be expanding into the EV market with an A0 class, supermini car named “Mistla”. The rumors were triggered by sightings of Tesla bosses outside Xiaomi offices in Beijing.
Reports say that the smartphone manufacturer will be working in tandem with an already-established Chinese auto maker to produce the vehicle. The car is expected to include an Android entertainment system which would obviously have the trademark MIUI.
Some argue that the rumored $6400 price tag on such a car is too low to be true
There is skepticism over whether or not this is actually credible. Some argue that the rumored $6400 price tag on such a car is too low to be true.
Furthermore, Xiaomi CEO, Leijun’s statement earlier this year was that the company had no plans for EVs at that time.
However, it is still also a possibility that the company is just being great at keeping mum, while waiting for the right moment to surprise the world with the Mistla.
