HiPhi unveils new electric hypercar
According to the announcement, the HiPhi A should be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just over two seconds and reach a top speed of almost 300 kph. It is the first vehicle with the motor and battery technology developed by HiPhi itself. HiPhi relies on an 800-volt platform with three motors – one at the front and two at the rear.
The rotors of the electric motors are made of a carbon fibre composite material and can reach up to 22,000 revolutions per minute. With direct cooling of the coils, the drive should be able to maintain a very high performance level for over 30 minutes. The motors are also very light and compact. In the HiPhi A, parts of the battery housing are also made of carbon, such as the base and housing cover.
Although the vehicle shares the unusual and angular design of the HiPhi X and Y, it was created as part of a cooperation with Wesail New Energy Automotive, according to HiPhi. HiPhi itself supplies the specially developed drive components, while Wesail is to contribute “hypercar elements.” ShanghaiTech University was also involved in the development.
The brand intends to reveal more details about the HiPhi A in the coming months. The premiere of the show car is scheduled for 17 November at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. The electric hypercar will be produced in limited numbers from the first quarter of 2025.
