Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi revealed the production version of its hotly-anticipated SU7 electric vehicle last week. But just days after the reveal, the tech giant has reportedly told potentially customers there could be a six to seven-month wait for their order to arrive.

As a reminder, the SU7, which is manufactured by state-owned BAIC Group, is the smartphone specialist’s first foray into electric vehicles, with the standard car costing just 215,900 yuan (around US$29,900 / £23,663 / AU$46,000 at current exchange rates). It offers 435-miles of range and just shy of 300bhp from its electric powertrain.

That’s no mean feat, yet the SU7 Pro, which now reportedly has an 18-21 week lead time, offers a staggering 516 miles on a single charge. There’s also a Max version that touts 497 miles of range but sees performance rise to 663bhp – enough to shame many modern supercars.

However, the BBC reports that potential customers will have to wait up to 27 weeks for the most potent models, according to screen grabs taken by punters and posted on Chinese social media.
