Although very young, at only four years old, the brand has designed its own electric motor. It consists of a rotor made of carbon fiber and a cooling system for the magnetic coil to reach 22,000 rpm without overheating. The motor is also equipped with another oil cooling system. The HiPhi A thus has three 800 V motors, two at the rear and one at the front, with a combined power equivalent of 1,287 hp. With this powertrain, the car reaches 100 km/h in less than two seconds, with a top speed of 300 km/h.
In terms of interior space, the HiPhi A can accommodate four occupants, each with their own seat. The central tablet is supported by the HiPhi Bot, a robotic arm that can position it on eight axes. The car is currently on display at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. HiPhi plans to launch a limited series of its supercars starting in 2025.
