Unveiling China’s HiPhi: The Electric Hatchback Racing at 186 MPH

Chinese car maker HiPhi, also known as Human Horizons, recently revealed the HiPhi A, an all-electric hypercar with impressive power. The company claims it can reach a top speed of 186 MPH and accelerate to 60 MPH in about two seconds. The maximum power output is 1,305 PS, thanks to the company’s in-house developed high-performance powertrain with a front single-motor drive and rear dual-motor drives.

The “A” in HiPhi A stands for Apollo and refers to the company’s technology partnership with Apollo, the force behind innovative hypercars, including the Intensa Emozione and Project Evo models. The car features adaptive dampers, rear-wheel steering, and a proprietary torque vectoring system for improved handling and braking.

The HiPhi A also boasts premium features such as a 23-speaker Meridian audio system, nappa leather trim, and a robust driver-assist platform with 34 sensors. It features an entertainment/infotainment screen attached to an “eight-direction, infinitely adjustable, high-speed motion robotic arm.”

The 800-volt electrical system and battery, which can discharge up to 1,500 kw at its peak, offer impressive numbers. However, HiPhi has not provided a range estimate yet, despite claiming that the casing is fireproof.

The HiPhi A will be showcased at the Guangzhou Auto Show, with more information about pricing and availability promised in the coming months. Although the brand is not currently available in the US, it has recently expanded to Europe.

Electric supercars are expensive, and the HiPhi A is expected to cost over $2 million. However, the company’s all-electric HiPhi Z sedan, which offers many of the same features, was priced at around $90,000 when it launched.
