Xiaomi SU7 EV Launched – Specs

The HyperEngine V8s sets a global record for EVs, achieving a maximum speed of 27,200 RPM, 425 kW (570 PS) output, and 635 Nm peak torque. To surpass the industry standard of 27,200 RPM, the HyperEngine V8s employs the industry’s first ultra-high-strength silicon steel plate with a tensile strength of 960 MPa.

Regarding cooling design, the HyperEngine V8s integrates Bidirectional Full Oil Cooling Technology and an S-shaped oil circuit design. A dual-cycle oil circuit increases the heat dissipation area of the stator by 100%, resulting in a cooling effect of up to 20°C. The rotor section employs a patented S-shaped oil circuit, enhancing the heat dissipation area by 50% and achieving a cooling effect of up to 30°C. Additionally, the stator silicon steel laminations feature a “step-like” staggered design, further increasing the effective heat dissipation area by an additional 7%. The HyperEngine V8s is currently under development and is slated for mass production and implementation in Xiaomi EVs in 2025.

Xiaomi’s self-developed HyperEngine V6/V6s E-motors boast an industry-leading rotational speed of 21,000 RPM, surpassing the most powerful mass-produced electric motor globally. The HyperEngine V6 super motor delivers a maximum power of 299 PS and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. Conversely, the HyperEngine V6s super motor achieves a maximum power of 374 PS and a maximum torque of 500 Nm.
