Xiaomi SU7 EVs Take Aim at Tesla Model 3 Long-Range with Blistering Range Claims

In the cutthroat world of electric vehicles, Xiaomi is flexing its muscles and throwing down the gauntlet with some seriously impressive range claims for its upcoming SU7 and SU7 Max models.

Let’s start with the Xiaomi SU7. According to none other than Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, the standard version of this car will pack a staggering 700-kilometer range right out of the gate. Under the same 19-inch wheelbase as the Tesla Model 3, the SU7 is touted to surpass even the long-range version of Elon Musk’s pride and joy in terms of range.

Xiaomi SU7 Max is taking things to a whole new level. With a claimed range of up to 800 kilometers, this electric beast is poised to become the only vehicle in China to achieve both blistering 2-second acceleration and an 800-kilometer range.

Of course, these claims are based on Xiaomi’s own testing conditions, the impact of high and low temperature environments and actual driving behavior” on the basis of CLTC operating conditions, claiming that improved by 18%. Specifically, they’ve factored in the impact of high and low temperatures, as well as actual driving behavior, to better simulate real-world conditions.

And just to drive the point home, Lei Jun shared some tantalizing details from their highway tests. Apparently, the standard SU7 managed to clock in an impressive 495-kilometer range at an average speed of 97.7 km/h, with an average power consumption of just 15 kWh/100 km.

Now, we all know that range claims can be a bit of a minefield, with real-world results often varying from the lab numbers. But if Xiaomi can deliver on even a fraction of these promises, it could seriously shake up the EV landscape and give Tesla a run for its money.

So, whether you’re a die-hard Tesla fan or a newcomer to the electric vehicle game, you’ll want to keep a close eye on Xiaomi’s SU7 and SU7 Max. After all, a little healthy competition never hurt anyone, and with numbers like these, the future of EVs is looking more exciting than ever!
