Xiaomi, the Chinese tech giant, may already be working on its first SUV. This hypothesis arises from a series of clues and statements that suggest the company's growing interest in the automotive market.

Xiaomi could enter the SUV market, Lei Jun suggests

Lei Jun, CEO and founder of Xiaomi

Recently, during the 30th Anniversary of China Internet Symposium, Zhou Hongyi, one of the richest men in China, shared details about his participation in the event on Weibo. During the symposium, Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, responded to a question regarding the popularity of the Xiaomi SU7, stating that the model is designed for those seeking driving pleasure and would not be suitable for Zhou, who prefers to travel as a passenger. However, Lei Jun hinted that she would recommend a Xiaomi SUV to Zhou as soon as it becomes available.

This exchange has fueled speculation among internet users, with many interpreting Lei Jun's words as a sign that Xiaomi is indeed developing an SUV. Furthermore, in a previous live broadcast, Lei Jun and Wei Jianjun, president of Great Wall Motors, discussed an SUV while maintaining confidentiality, but confirming that it would not be an off-road vehicle.

Public interest in a Xiaomi SUV is palpable: a survey revealed that over 75% of Chinese users are waiting for such a model. This enthusiasm is a clear indicator of the potential success that a Xiaomi SUV could have on the market.

If Xiaomi decides to enter the SUV segment, it would be a logical step after the launch of their first electric car, the sports sedan SU7. The latter has already demonstrated the company's capabilities to produce high-performance electric vehicles, with technical specifications that directly challenge established competitors such as Porsche and Tesla.

The SU7, with one power of 673 CV anddeclared autonomy of 800 km, has set new standards in the luxury electric sedan sector. With a ultra-fast charging that allows you to recover 220 km in just five minutes, the SU7 is positioned as one of the most advanced electric cars on the market.
