According to various Chinese reports, the long-rumored Xiaomi Smart Car is all set to go into development in the upcoming months.
The tech firm has been working and researching automotive technology, all in the interest of making a grand entrance in the car market soon.
As per a report from 36KR, the news was shared by one of the investors who is a confidante to the company’s CEO and Founder, Lei Jun, who is leading the Xiaomi smart car project himself.
Reportedly, the company will focus on offering products that compete in the premium and mid-tier market. The cars produced by the tech firm will also benefit from the brand’s rich technological arsenal.
