The HiPhi X is an all-electric SUV which offers 295 hp (220 kW) dual motors at the front and rear, allowing for 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, while a 97-kWh battery pack provides a potential range of 285 miles (460 km) on the WLTP scale. For Europe, the e-SUV will be offered in four- and six-seat configurations. In Germany, the six-seater will be offered from €109,000 ($119,346), while the four-seater will cost €123,000 ($134,675). In Norway, the four-seater HiPhi X will be priced at 1,164,000 Kr ($108,764) while its four-seater counterpart will start at 1,326,000 Kr ($123,902).
The HiPhi Z is an electric luxury GT which first begun production in China during 2022. It delivers a maximum output of 662 hp (494 kW) from the dual electric motors, enabling acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (100km/h) in 3.8 seconds.
