Rumor | Xiaomi Car battery specs leak out ahead of EV's launch
Xiaomi's upcoming first-gen car will debut as an electric vehicle (EV) with a more than respectable range, according to a new leak. Furthermore, it should be able to replenish its apparently sizable battery relatively quickly. Then again, these potentially impressive specs may not be exactly based on the most cutting-edge technology available.
Xiaomi is (still) projected to augment its e-mobility product line in a major way with its very own inaugural electric car at some point. Now, more specs for this putative EV has leaked out.
The discovery of a battery with the Xiaomi logo on it has sparked rumors that it belongs to an upcoming "EV" from the same company. Should that be the case, the vehicle in question may be marketed as a particularly long-range sedan, having a typical capacity of 139Ah, or 101 kilowatt-hours (kWh).
It may also be capable of charging as fast as one of Xiaomi's high-end smartphones, with a rate of no less than 726.7V. Accordingly, the "Xiaomi EV" is projected to be marketed as an "800V fast charging" car.
Nevertheless, a closer examination of the apparently impressive battery's label reveals it is based on lithum-ion (or Li-ion) technology, rather than something newer like LiFePO or solid-state.
Then again, there remains no guarantee that this battery as photographed will really be used in a next-gen Xiaomi EV of any kind.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
