Xiaomi MS11 electric sedan in production-ready form leaked

The images of the EV from Xiaomi wear an “MS11” registration plate. The Chinese smartphone maker’s first electric sedan could be called the Xiaomi MS11 EV when it launches in 2024. 

The images show a sedan body style, in line with the spy shots taken previously. The Xiaomi MS11 electric sedan seems to have taken design cues from the BYD Seal when it comes to the overall silhouette and styling of the front and rear lights. The front fascia gets a sizeable headlamp unit with signature LED DRLs as well as a sporty front air dam flanked by two body scoops. The rear lighting gets a split set with a horizontal LED light bar running across. The MS11 electric sedan gains smoother-flowing lines overall which give the vehicle a proportionate look. 

As for the basics, the Xiaomi MS11 electric sedan gets a five-door sedan body style, a large set of five-spoke alloy wheels, flush door handles, a glass roof, and large disc brakes with yellow brake callipers. There is also a prominent bulge at the front of the roof which could be housing to mount ADAS-related sensors such as LiDAR. The MS11 electric sedan is expected to use BYD-sourced Blade battery packs that use the LFP technology. Another alternative could be an 800V Qilin battery pack from CATL which will support super-fast charging and can charge from zero to 80 percent in just 15 minutes.

The Xiaomi MS11 is expected to go on sale in 2024 and prices are expected to be around RMB 260,000 (~ Rs 31,20,000) and RMB 350,000 (~ Rs 42,01,000) in China. Xiaomi is also supposedly working on a second EV which is being called the Lemans which is expected to arrive sometime in 2025.
