Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun Responds to Huawei’s ‘Interception’

On the afternoon of April 22, Xiaomi‘s founder, chairman and CEO Lei Jun posted an article responding to rumors related to the morning incident where ‘Huawei reportedly intercepted Xiaomi SU7 orders.’

Lei Jun stated that currently, the production capacity and delivery speed of Xiaomi SU7 are rapidly increasing, with both the standard version and Max being delivered ahead of schedule. Many prospective car owners have found in the Xiaomi Car App that the expected delivery time has been moved up. ‘At the Beijing Auto Show, I will provide a detailed introduction to our production capacity and delivery plan.’

Lei Jun also called out to netizens: “If you are really in a hurry to buy a car, domestic new energy vehicles are all good choices, such as LUXEED S7, NIO ET5, XPeng P7 series, etc. Everyone can also consider purchasing them!”

It is worth mentioning that Lei Jun had forwarded a Weibo related to Huawei’s terminal official account earlier this month before the HarmonyOS Spring Eco-Communication Conference, with the caption: ‘The next ten years will be a decade of intelligence. Let’s move forward together in China’s new energy vehicle industry. Wishing great sales for LUXEED S7!’

Previously, there were reports from domestic media that the LUXEED S7, which has been “redeployed,” began to “intercept” orders for Xiaomi SU7. Specifically, when purchasing any model of LUXEED S7 and paying the final payment, customers can directly deduct a non-refundable deposit of 5000 yuan for Xiaomi SU7 from the car price. An employee at a Huawei authorized experience store in Chengdu, Sichuan said, “There is indeed such a policy.”

Subsequently, Huawei officials stated that they are currently unaware of this. Many consumers have visited stores for test drives over the past few weekends, and the ability to deliver on a large scale is also a key concern for consumers.
