Even though the supplier has confirmed that the pricing of the Xiaomi car has been finalized, we did not get any numbers. Earlier, social media leaks hinted that the starting price of the vehicle would be 149,900 yuan. That converts to around $20,777.

In comparison, Tesla Model 3, the brand’s most affordable electric vehicle, starts at $35,000. But, Wang Hua, Xiaomi’s head of public relations, clarified that the pricing rumor of the Xiaomi car was false. Thus, it remains unclear if Xiaomi’s vehicle will be more affordable than Tesla’s Model 3.

But the good news is that Lu Weibing, the partner and president of Xiaomi, shared that the car project is progressing smoothly. And in May of this year, Lu said that the vehicle had entered an accelerated development stage. Also, in January of this year, the Xiaomi car was spotted in a snow test run.
