After Apple, Xiaomi would also like to get into the automotive sector and launch its own car.
We no longer stop the builders of tech, who keep making escapes outside their core business. While we were able to discover during the coronavirus crisis that the giants of the sector could provide their help via connected watches, we are now seeing them investing in the automotive sector. At the start of the year, several pieces of information detailed Apple’s plans to develop its own autonomous and electric car in the years to come. And today, it is one of the rivals of the Cupertino company which would launch into the game, namely Xiaomi!
Indeed, according to several sources from the iFengNews media, the Chinese manufacturer would be working on a homemade car, although for the moment no details have been given on the latter. The file would be directly overseen by the boss Lei Jun. The report echoed by iFengNews also explains that this project comes at a time when the smartphone market begins to stagnate, which would open a new path for the diversification of the firm’s activities. And you, would you be ready to get behind the wheel in a vehicle produced in the factories of Xiaomi ?
