Xiaomi SU7 Design
A quick glance at the SU7 is enough to tell you that Xiaomi have taken design inspiration from various cars sold around the world. The front end, with its teardrop-shaped headlamps and the tapering bonnet takes inspiration from McLaren’s supercars like the 720S. The glass house is very reminiscent of the Tesla Model Y, while the rear haunches are similar to what we saw in the upcoming BYD Seal at the 2023 Auto Expo.

The connected LED tail lamps at the rear seem like an inverted version of the Porsche Taycan’s tail lights.
