The startup HiPhi, famous for its unusual approach to design, has patented the exterior of its second model.
According to the images published by the Chinese edition, we can conclude that the company did not change its traditions and made a new model in a very unconventional body, which vaguely resembles a mixture of a sedan and a coupe-like station wagon. Against the background of it, the optics looks very conservative, without much pretentiousness. But the body lines are striking in their originality. The exterior is made in a deliberately sporty and aggressive manner.
At the moment, there are simply no special details about the technical part and the release date. Note that back in January, the senior director of brand development Go Tefu promised to present a new model in the second half of this year. It was reported that it will be very different from the only serial electric car of the brand – HiPhi X. Then it was noted about the “external similarity with the sedan” of the promising car.
Recall that the HiPhi lineup so far consists only of the electric model X, which was officially unveiled in 2020. Externally, the car cannot be unambiguously identified – the simultaneous similarity with a crossover and a minivan is very confusing. It is especially worth emphasizing that the rear doors of this car are truly unique – they open against the direction of travel, and the upper part of the roof, imitating the wings of a seagull, can be lifted.
HiPhi X is based on the modular HOA architecture. The power plant is two electric motors with a total capacity of 598 hp. (820 Nm). The cruising range is 550 km. The cars are manufactured at the Dongfeng Yueda Kia plant in Yancheng.
