In China, where it directly competes with the Tesla Model 3, the SU7 debuted with a starting price of CNY 215,900 (approximately Rs 25 lakh), reflecting its premium positioning in the electric vehicle segment.

Showcase in Bengaluru

In a surprising move, Xiaomi has chosen Bengaluru for the first public unveiling of the SU7 in India on July 9th.

The showcase aims to highlight Xiaomi’s technological prowess across various product categories, possibly hinting at future expansions into premium and luxury electric cars in India.

While Xiaomi maintains its focus on smartphones and consumer electronics in India, industry speculation persists regarding the potential introduction of the SU7 to the Indian market. The Bengaluru exhibition serves as a platform to gauge consumer interest and showcase Xiaomi’s capabilities in automotive engineering and manufacturing.

Technical Specifications and Features

If launched in India, the Xiaomi SU7, particularly in its top-spec Max Performance variant, promises to rival models like the BYD Seal EV in terms of performance and features. With dimensions measuring 4,997mm in length, 1,963mm in width, and 1,455mm in height, and boasting a wheelbase of 3,000mm, the SU7 offers ample space including a 105L front trunk (“Frunk”) and a 517L traditional boot capacity. The Max Performance variant is equipped with a robust 101 kWh battery delivering an impressive claimed range of 800 km (CLTC). Its dual-motor setup generates 663 bhp and 838 Nm of torque, enabling acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.78 seconds, showcasing its high-performance capabilities.
