Unveiling the future of electric hypercars, Chinese premium EV manufacturer HiPhi has disclosed its new marvel - the HiPhi A, set for release in 2025. As a four-seat, four-door hypercar, the A model is devised to rival players such as Rimac Nevera in terms of performance. The vehicle’s powertrain is built on a tri-motor setup that overwhelmingly generates up to 1287bhp. It includes one motor on the front axle, and two on the rear axle, allowing a super-fast sprint from 0 to 62 mph in approximately 2.0 seconds, and a top speed of 187 mph.
Notwithstanding the fact that HiPhi has yet to announce battery specifications like range or capacity, we're informed the HiPhi A hosts an in-house-developed unit which can discharge a staggering 1.5MW at its peak. Moreover, the A’s motor technology, said to be "lightweight, compact, ultra-quiet and upgradeable", is a product of Wesail New Energy Automotive. A host of performance-enhancing features like active rear-wheel steering, variable damping, a 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution, and torque-vectoring are incorporated into the car, promising to enhance cornering by 15% and boost braking performance by 10%.
With considerations to design and aesthetics, the A model inherits elements from HiPhi’s Z saloon and X SUV, both of which made their European debut earlier this year. Beyond these, the A has unique features like carbon fibre elements, matte paint, a large rear wing, and wider tyres than its HiPhi counterparts. The inside of the car is a blend of driver-focused design and digital technology, providing a comfortable space for two additional passengers. As for pricing, while still speculative, the new hypercar may have a price point similar to the Z and X models, tagged at around €100,000.
