Chinese automaker Human Horizons is making waves in the electric vehicle market with its latest release, the HiPhi A. This high-performance electric hypercar showcases the company’s dedication to innovation and technological prowess.
While the HiPhi A bears some similarities to its predecessor, the HiPhi Z, it has undergone a comprehensive styling and performance makeover. The car’s exterior features more aggressive bumpers with aerodynamic elements inspired by motorsports, a towering fixed rear wing, high-performance aluminum wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, and various carbon fiber components. The addition of exterior screens on the passenger doors allows users to send custom messages to other road users.
Underneath its concept car-like body, the HiPhi A impresses with advanced engineering. Built on an 800-volt platform, it is the first vehicle from Human Horizons to feature an in-house-developed battery pack and motors. The battery boasts a remarkable power output, capable of discharging 1.5 megawatts at its peak. It also includes industry-first features such as a carbon fiber bullet-proof bottom shield and a fireproof sprayed carbon fiber top cover.
The HiPhi A is equipped with a powerful tri-motor AWD powertrain, delivering a combined output of 1,287 horsepower. With each motor producing 429 horsepower, the hypercar accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just over 2 seconds and aims for a top speed close to 186 mph. Additionally, the front-to-rear axle weight distribution of 50:50 and the HiPhi Vectoring Control torque vectoring system enhance cornering and braking performance.
Beyond its impressive performance, the HiPhi A showcases advanced chassis technology, including rear-wheel active steering and CDC continuously variable damping. The use of materials like aircraft-grade TC4 titanium alloy, nano-ceramics, and 3D printing further emphasizes the car’s commitment to cutting-edge innovation.
Set to be released in a limited-run series in the first quarter of 2025, the HiPhi A will undoubtedly make a statement in the electric hypercar segment. While pricing details are yet to be announced, it is expected to exceed the starting price of the HiPhi Z.
