It is being pitched well above any of China’s other native EV makers, in terms of both brand aspiration and size. SUV is 5.2 meters long, accommodating up to six passengers in three rows. While, coming to its outlook, door and other things, the seats will all be power operated and able to slide into different configurations. On the other hand, the exterior doors also being electrically operated and without door handles. Besides that, for security user will unlock the car with either an app or face recognition.

Whereas, the rear-wheel drive will be standard, with an all-wheel drive version using a second identical motor to turn the front axle. Thus, this makes an AWD HiPhi 1 to hit the mark from 0-100km/h in just 3.9-seconds.
