The star of Mobile World Congress 2024 was not one of the hundreds of products announced at the exhibition. It is curious that the greatest attention and interest in Barcelona these days has attracted Xiaomi SU7, an electric car that the Chinese brand announced at the end of 2023 in its home country and which was exhibited at its stand at the Fira Gran Vía.

In particular, Xiaomi presented the SU7 Max, the most avant-garde version of the two announced at that time. The car, which the brand explains has all-wheel drive, promises torque of more than 800 Nm, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.78 seconds and a range of 800 kilometers according to the Chinese CLTC cycle.

But in addition to the amazing features that the brand announced at the end of 2023, there were also three unknown What remains to be decided is how the car performs in practice, what the marketing plans are outside of China, and what the car looked like in real life.

The first riddle, unfortunately, still cannot be solved. Not only was it not possible to test the Xiaomi SU7; We weren’t even allowed to go there. What we have achieved – at least partially – is solve two other unknowns. And that’s good news.

When will Xiaomi SU7 arrive in Spain?

In an interview during the Mobile World Congress, Lu Weibing (President of the Xiaomi Group and International Business Department) assured: CNBC What The first deliveries of Xiaomi SU7 will take place in China in the second quarter of 2024.

What about Spain? When will Xiaomi SU7 debut in our country? Hypertext approached the Chinese brand with this problem during the Mobile World Congress. The reaction was quite positive: It is planned that the product will also appear on the Iberian Peninsula., although they do not know when exactly this event may occur. They don’t even dare to name the year.

Xiaomi SU7

However, given that Xiaomi SU7 is the brand’s first electric car and its launch in China is not planned until the second quarter, From the looks of it, the vehicle will have a hard time landing in the West sometime during 2024.. Everything seems to indicate that we will have to wait until at least 2025.

An important factor to consider regarding the above international expansion is the differences between Chinese and European regulations. For Xiaomi SU7 to be sold in Europe must get the green light from the authorities in various aspects such as security–. It is also necessary to make the necessary adaptations for the market, such as the charging connector. Finally, it is necessary to create a business and logistics structure that will allow marketing and subsequent support of vehicles on the old continent. This is a long process that, as I said, seems difficult to complete before 2025.

What does Xiaomi SU7 look like in real life?

Personally Xiaomi SU7 truly exciting car. Much more bonus than might be expected given Xiaomi’s limited track record in the automotive world.

Its exterior lines are inevitably reminiscent of cars such as the Porsche Taycan, one of the benchmark electric vehicles on the market. Inside, however, what little we were able to see is more reminiscent of a Tesla Model S. The aesthetics of the seats, the powerful weight of the central screen, the thin instruments behind the wheel, the overall minimalism… the combination is quite interesting.

The detail that attracts attention is the “hump” located on the windshield, in which the elements of autonomous driving are located. An element not very common in Western cars.. It is also strange to see the Xiaomi logo on a car, although this is just a matter of habit.

Obviously, This is only the first approach to the car.. To determine its true quality will require much deeper experience. But while this is not possible, the reality is that Xiaomi SU7 surprises. And even more so when you consider that it is from a completely new brand and was developed in just 3 years.
