At the end of last week, rumors resurfaced that Xiaomi was considering moving forward with the development of its own electric car. Now the Chinese manufacturer has come out to respond to these rumors.
The statements were given to the TechSina website. In the statement entitled “Clarification of news about entry into the electric vehicle industry”, Xiaomi says that there are no approved projects yet.
Xiaomi does not rule out electric car development, but still has no approved projects
Without discarding this option, the technology says that we will have to “wait and see”. However, it is reinforced that there is still no project approved in this sense, at the date.
New rumors about the loosely called “Mi Car” surfaced at the end of last week through news from the iFengNews website. He cited several sources announcing Xiaomi’s plan to start developing an electric car soon.
Although details on the project had not been advanced, an important detail was revealed. The source said Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun would have direct interference and would be leading the project.
This answer from Xiaomi is still somewhat or inconclusive. It ends up not completely denying that he may be considering that option, but that there is just nothing approved at the moment.
It is recalled that Xiaomi is not the only technological smartphone giant that has recently been involved in these rumors. Apple was also reportedly in talks with brands like Hyundai to develop the so-called “Apple Car”. Although Cupertino’s technology did not confirm or deny it, this seems to be a distant project.
