Xiaomi has launched a new car, and people are already raving about it.

It certainly means business, partly because it looks good but also due to the outstanding value it provides.

The amazing interior quality proves that and is the real star of the show.

Apple may have canned its car project but other tech giants haven’t.

Sony has made a car, and Huawei built one, too.

Then – of course – there’s Xiaomi with its new SU7, which is halfway between an SUV and a sedan.

SU7 is available with Standard, Pro and Max spec, and if you think that sounds suspiciously Apple-esque, you’re not alone.

Standard and Pro both come with 299 horsepower and can charge from 0 to 350 km (217 miles) of range in 15 minutes.

In both cases, the top speed is 210 km/h – 130 mph.

Two things set them apart.

First, Pro is marginally slower, with a 0-60 mph of 5.7 seconds, while Standard can do 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds.

And secondly – this is probably more important – with Standard, you get 700 km (434 miles), whereas with Pro you get 830 km (515 miles).

If that’s not enough, you can always go for the Max version, which gives you 800 km of range and a whopping 673 horsepower, good enough for a 0-60 mph time of just 2.78 seconds, which is Ferrari territory.

The top speed is 265 km/h – or 164 mph.

Mind you what truly sets it apart is the interior, and not just because it’s fitted with a LiDar (like a radar, but it can detect obstacles and tell you whether it’s a car, a person, a dog, a lamppost and so on) and even a mini-fridge.

The interior makes this car even more special because it feels solid, well-thought-out and carefully put together.

And that – for a car that starts at less than $30,000 – is a huge plus.
