Interestingly, Lei said that if Xiaomi, which manufactures smartphones, smart home, and smart office products, does not participate in the electric vehicle transition, then it would “be eliminated,” because “electric cars have now transformed from a mechanical industry to an information industry,” according to CNEVPost.

The company already makes electric bicycles and mopeds.
