Xiaomi Modena spied testing in winter conditions

The Xiaomi Modena electric sedan was pictured testing in snow and ice, possibly to record battery performance in such conditions. CEO Lei Jun, who has been an advocate for the company’s move into the EV market, has reportedly been an active part of the development process and is rumored to have been part of the team testing in Mongolia.

The Xiaomi Modena is rumored to get three powertrain options. The Modena’s two powertrains will use BYD-sourced Blade battery packs that use LFP technology. The third variation will use CATL’s 800V Qilin battery pack. The CATL-sourced battery pack will reportedly support super-fast charging and can charge from zero to 80 percent in just 15 minutes.

The spy shots also reveal the silhouette of the electric sedan which has adopted a conventional coupe-inspired design philosophy. The pictures show a long bonnet, a sloping roofline, and a large rear trunk section which is accentuated by a long overhang. The test vehicle can also be seen wearing a set of blacked-out 10-spoke alloys wrapped on performance-oriented low-profile tires. The sporty orientation of the Modena can also be recognized through the large front disc brake and the yellow-colored brake calipers.

Xiaomi electric car price (expected)

The Xiaomi Modena is expected to go on sale in 2024 and prices are expected to be around RMB 260,000 (~Rs 31,20,000) and RMB 350,000 (~Rs 42,01,000) in China. Xiaomi is also reportedly working on a second EV, called the Lemans, which is expected to arrive in 2025.
