Xiaomi, as reports suggest, is already developing its first electric vehicle (EV). In fact, some initial prototypes have been manufactured at a factory in Beijing, with a production capacity of 50 vehicles per week.
Sources indicate that the major technology company is awaiting type approval from the relevant Chinese ministry. It is said that the EV will feature a 101.0 kWh battery, providing a range of 800 kilometers, and will incorporate 800V technology.
While these numbers are quite impressive, even more striking is the likely name that will be chosen: Modena! Whether it can indeed be used for sales will depend on potential trademark rights, as it could be connected to Ferrari. Ferrari introduced the 360 Modena in the late ’90s, and the name is closely associated with the famous Italian company.
