Xiaomi is a multi-talented company, they will be releasing smartphones, and on the other day toothbrushes. They even sell towels, glasses, scooters, and whatnot. A year ago, Xiaomi also entered the automobile industry. They launched a Xiaomi Redmi car, which was a customized version of Bestune T77 SUV. And now we heard that Xiaomi is launching another car. However, Xiaomi shocked us with an RC car instead.
We didn’t get a new car but the RC car is not bad either. The Xiaomi’s RC car is inspired by Suzuki Jimny. For those who aren’t in touch with the automobile industry, Jimmy is a popular SUV offering from Suzuki. Xiaomi’s Intelligent Remote Control Realistic Car can be purchased for $59.99, so let’s see if Xiaomi RC is actually any good and what features it comes with.
Xiaomi RC Car Design & Features
With its beautiful ladder frame chassis made by shockproof nylon material, the RC color looks exactly like Suzuki Jimmy. The RC car does not even miss any tiny detail on shock absorbers and coil springs. The RC car features off-road tires just like on the original SUV. With all the resemblance from the original car, it also comes with modern connectivity features.
The Xiaomi Intelligent Remote Control Realistic Car doesn’t come with any controller. Hence it can be controlled by your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.2. By an app, you will be able to control your car by the virtual rocker or gravity sensor mode. The app is said to give you the most suitable control method and achieve a variety of operating spaces. With a four-wheel drive, the car has the ability to climb up.
But a good drive experience also requires a big battery. Hence, Xiaomi Intelligent Remote Control Realistic Car comes with a 500 mAh Li-Po battery, which ensures the car will run for 30 minutes. The car can be recharged to 100% in just one hour. The car comes in the iconic neon green color which makes the car eye-catching. If you’re wondering where is the Mi logo, well it is placed on the spare wheel at the rear side. While you can see the Suzuki logo at the front just like in the real car.
