HiPhi Hypercar Seeks to Topple Lucid Air Sapphire

1,287 HP Wacky Styling: For Those Who Find Air Too Plain

Chinese vehicle manufacturer HiPhi has made public its fresh-off-the-line production – an all-electric, high performance four-door sedan named the A. Although it resembles a sedan, HiPhi has branded it as a hypercar: an unexpected description, yet this begins to seem reasonable in light of its superior performance specs.

The HiPhi A, a four-seater hypercar, has been described by the company as being able to “sprint to 62 mph in just over two seconds before reaching a top speed of ‘almost’ 186 mph”. It features a tri-motor setup, with one motor on the front axle and two on the rear, providing a total of 1,287 horsepower.

HiPhi has joined forces with WESAIL New Energy Automotive to produce a joint venture vehicle. Working together, they have been able to construct something completely unique and state-of-the-art. The result of their dedication is a remarkable end product that offers an unparalleled level of sophistication and performance.

The pioneering A sedan from HiPhi showcases their home-engineered battery pack and motors. The carbon fiber bearing implementation and oil and magnetic canister coil direct refrigeration innovation enable a highly operable power delivery exceeding thirty minutes. In addition, HiPhi remarks that these motors are eminently upgradeable.

The automobile producer has not revealed facts regarding range or battery capacity, but points out the battery set up can produce 1.5 MW of power at its highest. Along with a carbon-fiber bullet resistant undercarriage monitor, this should stop any insignificant crashes from resulting in a total waste of the electric vehicle, as many others are. Additionally, the central part of the battery pack is presented with a fire-resistant carbon fiber covering.

Greeting the HiPhi family is the new A, and it is sure to be a blast around corners. Although there are no official measurements or weights for the car, HiPhi has gone to great lengths to make sure that the A is as agile as possible. Active rear-axle steering, torque vectoring, and continuously variable damping are just some of the dynamic features of the HiPhi A. Boasting a “close to 50:50” weight distribution between the front and rear, this car looks like it’ll be a serious performer.

The A is certainly an eye-catching creation. Despite its four-door construction, there are no conventional elements to be seen here, with an uncommon liftback outline taking centre stage. HiPhi claims the appearance was based off their current models’ futuristic styling, while claiming a resemblance to the Lancia Gamma from the 70s. The panels of this vehicle flaunt unmistakable forged carbon fibre, featured on the rear wing, front fascia (which can be likened to that of the Nissan GT-R) and side skirts.

A predatory appearance has been achieved with the wide footprints, highlighted by the obvious wheel wells. We’ve witnessed an analogous glance on the Hyundai N Vision 74 concept. The consequence is a curvilinear hourglass form that is intensely captivating. Generally speaking, the HiPhi A is somewhat overcomplicated, but one can’t discount its massiveness.

The cabin is pared down and simplistic with the main touchscreen in the middle, and two digital screens either side of it for the exterior mirrors. We deduce the rearview mirror must also be digital based on the fact that the HiPhi A doesn’t seem to have a rear window. Cushy illuminated lighting brightens up the sombre cabin, while the thickly-padded bucket seats and backrest look constructed from mixed cloth and leather.

“As we move from the internal combustion engine era to the new era of intelligent electric mobility, the most advanced hypercars must represent the peak of innovative technology while still honoring the classics,” said David Ding, founder and CEO of HiPhi. “These vehicles should be a representation of the transformative nature of the automotive industry, providing a glimpse of what is to come in the future.”

HiPhi is introducing their newest model at the Guangzhou Auto Show on November 17th. Only a small number of them will be manufactured, and production is slated to initiate in the first quarter of 2025. Should Tesla Model S Plaid and Lucid Air Sapphire be concerned?
