On March 28th, Chinese technology company Xiaomi announced the launch of their first electric vehicle, the SU7. The standard retail price is less than 220,000 yuan, equivalent to roughly 31 thousand US dollars, undercutting market expectations and signalling an intent to compete with Tesla. However, many people have observed striking resemblances between the SU7 and the Porsche Taycan, not just in appearance but also in the design of the car key and the key battery replacement. Some internet users jokingly suggested renaming the SU7 as "Bao Shi mi," which means Porche Mi, a combined name for Porche and Xiaomi.
