However, under the influence of this “hot” news, shares of the Xiaomi Group still managed to grow immediately by 11.81%.

The other day they started talking about the fact that one of the leading smartphone manufacturers decided to try it in the automotive industry. Informed sources said that Xiaomi is developing its first electric car.

A couple of days after this news, the company made an official statement: it turned out that Xiaomi is not developing its own car. At the same time, the company’s statement notes that the niche of Xiaomi electric cars is interesting. Only we are talking about research that is far from an independent project.

It turns out that Xiaomi does not have a car as such – at least in the form of a concept car or a platform, but there is interest in this area. So in the future, the company may well return to this idea.

True, it will take five years to wait, since Xiaomi does not have the required experience to develop an electric car from scratch.

In the meantime, it became known that the American company Apple is actively developing its self-driving car. At this stage, we are looking for partners-suppliers of laser sensors for cars.
