Xiaomi is said to be gearing up to unveil its first electric vehicle (EV) prototype in August. Company founder, Lei Jun will unveil the prototype of the first car from the phone giant at a public event this coming August. The company founder apparently spends two thirds of his time at the Xiaomi Auto headquarters to make sure the project is progressing as planned.

Technically, this is not the first EV Xiaomi has put out. That would be the M365 electric scooter. The Chinese giant made a big commitment to the electric car market last year, pledging to invest $10 billion over the next ten years.
