Xiaomi has a top secret project to build an electric car that would compete with the Apple Cat. This is Micar.
Xiaomi As we all know, it has become a serious competitor in the smartphone industry.
To such a degree that its popularity in the Orient is perfectly comparable to that of Manzana on this side of the planet.
As we know the guys from Cupertino have starred in several rumors pointing out that they would be about to build their own electric car, the Apple Car.
Well it seems that it was only a matter of time for Xiaomi to do the same. This is what the Micar project is all about.
Something supposedly very longed for
All we are about to share is a rumor leaked by anonymous informants with supposed deep knowledge of the subject.
But it is still very disturbing. Since from China, with the LatePost colleagues comes the report that Xioami would be starting this project whose purpose is to develop its first electric vehicle.
This top secret job (until now) would be codenamed Micar, and would be directed by none other than the founder and current CEO of the company, Lei Jun.
According to the report, in 2013 the executive would have visited the United States to learn about the then nascent Tesla Motors project promoted by Elon Musk.
Upon his return, he began to play with the idea of entering that market and in 2018 they would have started the Micar project.
However, despite his recent reactivation, Micar is actually still in very early stages of gestation.
So there is even the frank possibility that Xiaomi does not decide to make an electric car.
But in any case, the Apple Car could have a very serious door competitor.
