Suspected Xiaomi car design renderings exposed

Recently, a group of design renderings of the suspected Xiaomi MS11 have been circulated on the Internet.

The exposed pictures show that MS11 is a fastback coupe, which looks more conventional overall, equipped with an integrated canopy, closed front face, through-type taillights, and laser radar. In the center of the front of the car is the logo that Xiaomi updated the year before last, and the combination of the left and right headlights is also a "meter" shape.

Earlier, a group of exterior cladding parts of Xiaomi cars were exposed, showing the design details of the front and rear enclosures.

In response, Wang Hua, general manager of Xiaomi Group's public relations department, responded that this was "a leak of a confidential design document from a second-tier supplier", but "the leaked document is a very early design draft of the bidding process, not the final document."

This line looks a bit like ET5.
