Xiaomi’s new sporty electric car will blow your mind

Xiaomi has begun taking an active part in electric vehicle (EV) development as evidenced by the launch of SC-01 roadster. The EV is a creation of a Chinese automotive start-up backed by Xiaomi, called Xiaopaoche.

Xiaomi has started to actively participate in the development of electric vehicles (EVs), as seen by the introduction of the SC-01 roadster. The EV was developed by Xiaopaoche, a Chinese automaker with Xiaomi’s support.

With 435 horsepower (hp) dual-electric motors, the SC-01 is a lightweight, compact roadster that can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds. The SC-01’s battery size has not been disclosed by the manufacturer, however, it is believed to have a 500 km range.

For its diminutive size, SC-01 has gotten a tonne of accolades from aficionados. Its exact measurements are 2500 mm in wheelbase and 4085/1820/1162 mm in height. Additionally, it is far lighter than the majority of electric sedans at 1,300 kg.

All of these features will probably make SC-01 a Lotus Elise and Exige-style spiritual successor.

According to reports, SC-01 will cost under 300,000 RMB (Rs. 9.5 million). The company has started taking bookings from consumers at 199 RMB (Rs. 6,400). International news outlets are calling it a “bargain sports EV”, which is far from the reality for Pakistanis thanks to crippling inflation and abysmal exchange rates.

Xiaopaoche will begin taking official orders for SC-01 in Q3 2023, while the deliveries will begin in Q4 2023. The SC-01 is an exciting EV that may catch the eye of several markets other than China.

The SC-01 is a small two-door sports car. It has got the typical exterior of a small sporty vehicle. Its front end got a sporty bumper with side vents, a low hood line, and sharp headlights. Worth mentioning that this compact car got only one windscreen wiper. A
