Xiaomi fans are in for a treat as the company is set to launch its first car in partnership with Bestune, the company announced on Weibo.
A customized Redmi branded Bestune T77 SUV will be unveiled on 3rd April, making Xiaomi much more than just a smartphone company. The Chinese consumer electronics company had earlier announced to enhance its product range, however, a Xioami car is easily the most exciting and ambitious product.
