In a bold move that signals its ambitious foray into the automotive industry, Xiaomi recently hosted the Xiaomi EV Technology Launch, a showcase of the company’s cutting-edge Electric Vehicle Technologies set to redefine the electric vehicle (EV) landscape. The event introduced Xiaomi EV’s five core technologies: E-Motor, Battery, Xiaomi Die-Casting, Xiaomi Pilot Autonomous Driving, and Smart Cabin.
Xiaomi EV and Cutting-edge Electric Vehicle Technologies
E-Motor: Pushing Performance Boundaries
At the heart of Xiaomi’s electric vehicles lies the innovative HyperEngine V6/V6s and HyperEngine V8s E-motors. These motors, with a revolutionary design featuring Bidirectional Full Oil Cooling Technology and a patented S-shaped oil circuit, outperform traditional powertrains. The HyperEngine V8s, set to be mass-produced in 2025, boasts a global record for E-motors with a maximum speed of 27,200 rpm, 425kW output, and 635N·m peak torque.
Xiaomi’s Battery Breakthroughs
Xiaomi’s CTB Integrated Battery Technology sets a new standard with a battery integration efficiency of 77.8%, the highest globally. The battery, with a maximum capacity of 150 kWh, utilizes a dual-side water cooling solution for efficient heat dissipation and features a robust 14-layer physical protection system. The Battery Management System (BMS) with ASIL-D ensures top-notch safety with three independent thermal runaway monitors and alarms.
Xiaomi Die-Casting: Efficiency and Innovation
The Xiaomi Die-Casting T9100 cluster, covering 840m², is a game-changer in large die-casting. This technology reduces car weight by 17%, production hours by 45%, and integrates 72 components into one for increased efficiency. Xiaomi’s proprietary Xiaomi Titans Metal, a high-strength, heat-treated die-casting material, further demonstrates the company’s commitment to a full-stack self-researched approach.
Xiaomi’s Pioneering Autonomous Driving Technologies
Xiaomi stands out in the field of autonomous driving with its Adaptive BEV Technology, Road-Mapping Foundational Model, and Super-Res Occupancy Network Technology. The Adaptive BEV Technology adapts perception algorithms based on scenarios, while the Road-Mapping Foundational Model intelligently navigates complex intersections without relying on high-definition maps. Xiaomi’s Super-Res Occupancy Network Technology achieves unprecedented obstacle recognition accuracy of 0.1m, surpassing traditional networks.
Smart Cabin: Revolutionizing In-Car Experience
The Xiaomi EV Smart Cabin offers a “human-centric” interaction architecture with a 16.1-inch 3K central console, a 56-inch HUD head-up display, and a 7.1-inch rotating dashboard. Powered by the Snapdragon 8295 in-car chip, the Smart Cabin provides an ultimate interactive experience, seamlessly integrating with over 1000 Xiaomi smart home devices. The intuitive in-car OS launches in just 1.49 seconds, showcasing Xiaomi’s commitment to a seamless user experience.
Completing the “Human x Car x Home” Ecosystem
Xiaomi’s Founder and CEO, Lei Jun, envisions Xiaomi EV as a crucial component in completing the “Human x Car x Home” smart ecosystem. With a focus on collaboration, Xiaomi aims to empower users with seamless integration of hardware devices, real-time coordination, and AI-driven solutions. The “Human x Car x Home” smart ecosystem, now including Xiaomi EV, marks a significant milestone in Xiaomi’s evolution towards becoming a global automotive player.
In Lei Jun’s words, “Xiaomi’s entry into the automotive industry signifies a new beginning for Xiaomi, and I believe that one day, Xiaomi EVs will be a familiar sight on roads around the world.” The technology giant’s commitment to foundational core technologies and deep investment positions it as a major contender in the rapidly evolving electric vehicle landscape.
