The HiPhi A may look like it comes straight off the set of the next Blade Runner movie, but it is, in fact, a real car designed for real people.The HiPhi A is an electric hypercar and set to be produced in a limited series run, scheduled to commence production and delivery in the first quarter of 2025.
The 4-door- 4-seater luxury hypercar is the product of the collaboration between HiPhi and WESAIL New Energy Automotive, blending HiPhi-developed battery and motor technology with WESAIL New Energy Automotive’s Apollo traditional hypercar elements.
HiPhi A is based on the company’s proprietary, in house developed 800V platform, the electric drive assembly adopts a front single-motor drive and rear dual-motor drive layout, with a peak power of up to 1,305 PS.
The motors are made from ultra-high-speed carbon-fiber rotor design, matched with full oil-cooling and magnetic cylinder coil direct-cooling technology, enabling ultra-high speeds of 22,000 rpm and ultra-long-time high power output of more than 30 minutes. At the same time, thanks to advanced technology, HiPhi A’s motors are lightweight, compact, ultra-quiet, and upgradable.
The battery pack is able to discharge 1.5MW of power at its peak. In an industry-first, it features a carbon fiber bullet-proof bottom shield and a fireproof sprayed carbon fiber top cover.
HiPhi A also innovatively uses the first aircraft grade TC4 titanium alloy in automotive interior and exterior trim, in addition to high-performance aluminium alloys, nano-ceramics and other materials in the chassis.
Advanced chassis technologies like rear-wheel active steering, CDC continuously variable damping, as well as a front-to-rear axle weight ratio close to 50:50 provide the foundations for HiPhi A’s handling dynamics.
The HiPhi A will also be equipped with HiPhi’s leading torque vectoring control technology HVC (HiPhi Vectoring Control) to improve vehicle handling. Further details of HiPhi A will be announced in the coming months.
