The Chinese corporation Xiaomi plans to enter the market of unmanned vehicles ahead of the Apple brand. Writes about this edition of Autoevolution. According to experts, the American brand Apple may present its electric car in 2025.
According to preliminary information, the Xiaomi electric car will receive the 4th level autonomous control technology. That is, in theory, he will be able to drive without a driver, but in certain situations the autopilot system will need human assistance.
Great Wall Motors will support the creation of cars by the Chinese company Xiaomi. At the same time, the Apple brand does not yet have a partner among automakers. It is possible that the American company will cooperate with Foxconn: one of its main partners in the production of iPhone.
Future Xiaomi electric vehicles will target both domestic and global markets, experts predict. To create them, the Chinese brand will additionally hire 500 engineers. The plans of the Xiaomi brand to enter the electric vehicle market became known a few months ago. The company intends to invest $ 1.5 billion in this project.
