Xiaomi’s First e-SUV ‘MX11’ in Testing Phase, Expected Release in 2025

Xiaomi delivered the 20,000th SU7, only two and a half months after its launch

Tech giant Xiaomi is testing its second electric vehicle and first SUV in China. Although not confirmed, the Chinese tech company is calling the new e-SUV “MX11.” Customers waiting for the new EV from Xiaomi can expect the release in 2025.

Xiaomi’s previous electric car, the SU7, was successful, selling 8,646 units in May. Also, the CEO Lei Jun said their first vehicle would be a car many people dream of. So, what was the result? The company delivered the SU7 with a design inspired by Porsche and McLaren.

And now, from the spy shots, we see that the MX11 keeps design elements similar to the Xiaomi SU7. However, its side profile looks like the Ferrari Purosangue.

More Design Details of MX11

From the leaked images, we can see MX11’s covered in heavy camouflage. However, there is a unique design style, which reminds you of the Xiaomi SU7. Also, the front of the car has a smooth design and headlights that resemble those of the Xiaomi sedan. Like the SU7, the e-SUV has a pebble-shaped lidar mounted on the roof.

The SUV’s roofline continues towards the back, giving it a coupe-like appearance. When viewed from the side, you will see distinct features such as yellow brake calipers, five-spoke wheels, and connected rear taillights. These features align with Xiaomi’s design approach for the SU7.

For now, we don’t have the details about the powertrain and other specifications. However, more information will emerge in the next few months, and we will keep you updated.
