Xiaomi has launched a new compact air purifier Mi Car Air Purifier in China that can be used inside a car. It’s priced at CNY 449 (roughly Rs. 4,400) and will hit the Chinese market starting Tuesday, December 27. Alongside, Xiaomi has also introduced a new anti-fog and haze air mask priced at CNY 69 (roughly Rs. 675).
To launch the new compact air purifier according to Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun was the reception of the Mi Air Purifier Pro and Mi Air Purifier 2, which were so portable that Chinese people were carrying them around even in transit. With winters around and a rise pollution in China, people are readily inclining towards using more air cleaning devices.
Thus, the Xiaomi CEO directed the company’s engineers to come up with something that can be more portable, which led to the idea of Mi Car AirPurifier. Talking about its design, the Mi Car Air Purifier looks somewhat identical to Xiaomi’s previous air purifiers, but in a more compact shell.
The Xiaomi Mi Car AirPurifier has a filter for a PM2.5 particulate matter, and a CADR (clean air delivery rate) of 60 cubic meters per hour, which is capable of cleaning the average car’s air in about 3-7 minutes. It also consists of two-wheel mirror fan circulation system that expels clean air in all directions and in addition to that it also comes with a silent mode so that you don’t hear the noise while on a call inside your car.
