HiPhi recently unveiled its groundbreaking HiPhi A, marking a significant leap in automotive innovation. Set for its physical debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show in 2023, this hypercar embodies a fusion of HiPhi’s cutting-edge battery and motor tech with WESAIL New Energy Automotive’s classic hypercar elements.
David Ding, HiPhi’s Founder, envisions the HiPhi A as a blend of timeless luxury and futuristic technology, capturing the essence of innovation while paying homage to automotive classics. The collaboration between HiPhi, WESAIL, and ShanghaiTech University births a true marvel for the new era.
Design-wise, the HiPhi A exudes a future-forward aesthetic, boasting a sleek carbon fiber body with a matte finish, accentuating its bold presence. Its interior champions HiPhi’s LuxTech elements, with a driver-focused setup and a spacious rear, defining it as the ultimate 4-door 4-seater digital EV hypercar for the next generation.
Aesthetically, it looks like a Nissan GT-R front end spliced with the Hyundai RM19 Racing Midship Sports Car. And yes, it is a hatchback of sorts and it makes no apologies for the abundance of sharp lines it has. I dig the look – a lot. The HiPhi A has the vibe of Shalong’s “Mecha Dragon” but is more attractive.
Performance-wise, the HiPhi A is set to stun, accelerating from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just over 2 seconds, aiming for a top speed close to 300km/h (186 mph). It introduces HiPhi’s in-house high-performance powertrain, featuring an 800V platform and cutting-edge electric drive assembly delivering a peak power of 1,305 PS (1,287 horsepower). Notably, its innovative battery pack boasts an industry-first carbon fiber bullet-proof shield and cloud-controlled technology, ensuring both power and safety.
Pioneering materials like aircraft-grade TC4 titanium alloy and 3D printing technologies through collaboration with ShanghaiTech University elevate HiPhi A’s structural integrity and manufacturing processes, while advanced chassis technologies promise agile handling and enhanced control.
As details continue to unfold, HiPhi A promises to redefine automotive excellence, marrying luxury, innovation, and performance in a singular marvel for the road ahead. Meanwhile, you may learn more over at HiPhi.com.
