Xiaomi in Talks w/ Tesla for Php290K-worth Mini Car
Although Xiaomi has seen huge success in the smartphone industry, they have a ton of non-tech products in their portfolio that are available in some parts of the globe. However, it seems that the Chinese company is about to embark on a new venture which, according to rumor-mongers, involves a mini car dubbed as Mistla that is believed to be retailed for only 39,999 Yuan or under 290K in our local currency.
According to GizChina, speculations about the Mistla started when people started seeing Tesla bigwigs with their Tesla cars at Xiaomi offices in Beijing, China.

As one would assume, the rumor spread like wildfire and it has reached Chinese newswires which confirmed that Xiaomi has, indeed, been in talks with China-based car manufacturers for a possible four-seater, A-segment vehicle similar to a Hyundai i10.
Nothing is official at the time of writing, so it’s best to take these speculations lightly. But if this rumor turned out to be true, and Xiaomi brought this mini-car to our shore, is the Xiaomi Mistla something that would tickle your fancy? Share your thoughts in the comments field below.
