Default Xiaomi releases teaser image of a car; Could either make a car or relevant software

It seems that Xiaomi has a big surprise. Tomorrow, it can surprise its fans in a very special way. A teaser for a new product has appeared on the official Xiaomi account on the social network Weibo. Judging by the outlines, it is is a car, an SUV. With its silhouette, it resembles to a Suzuki Jimny or Mercedes G-class.

Perhaps the teaser could be perceived as a joke, but there is a couple of things to discuss. Firstly, after all, we are talking about the official page of Xiaomi, and not fans page. Secondly, the inscription on the image confirms that everything is serious: “Make a car? We are serious!”. After publication, the teaser was deleted, but this did not save it from distribution on the Web.

It must be said that Xiaomi is actively cooperating with a number of local automakers, and even decently invested last year in the famous Chinese company Xiaopeng Motors. The latter, by the way, recently reported on the start of supply of the Xiaopeng P7 electric sedan, which is positioned on the local market as an alternative to Tesla cars. But the Chinese car has a completely different design. So it’s not yet clear what kind of car we are talking about. It is possible that this car will turn out to be a toy. Let’s hope tomorrow that things clear up.

Xiaomi employs a unique strategy in selling their products, unlike other smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung and Apple. Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi explains: “We try to sell our products as close as possible to their manufacturing cost”. The company also has several services that allow it to expand its profits.
