In producing a mass-market vehicle with all the cutting-edge technologies 
usually reserved for R&D labs, the team at Human Horizons has faced a number of 
great challenges. Aside from simply putting pieces together, they have also 
focused on safety measures, user experience, and visual aesthetics. Led by the 
three guiding principles of 'design defined by scenarios, vehicle defined by 
software, and value defined by co-creation', the HiPhi X is a combination of 
sophisticated software, intelligent hardware, and elegant design. Built to be 
used together, this relationship is comparable to how smartphones replaced the 
previous generations of mobile phones.

Founder of Human Horizons and HiPhi, Ding Lei stated: "Faced with great changes 
in the automotive industry driven by new technologies such as the Internet, 
renewable energy, artificial intelligence, and 5G communications, we at Human 
Horizons have built HiPhi. By acting in accordance with our three guiding 
principles, we hope to explore the future of transportation along with our 
dedicated customers. HiPhi is designed for pioneers, people who seek the 
freedom to create and explore new things. People who have a core belief to want 
more and who will continuously strive to achieve more by pushing the limits of 
human capability. With these people in mind, we have already surpassed the 
traditional car manufacturing mind-set and have anchored our thinking on three 
new dimensions to design the vehicles of tomorrow: HUA ('H' Performance 
Intelligence, 'U' V2X Collaboration and 'A' Connectivity and Sharing). We are 
committed to combining the experience of a luxury brand with new technologies 
under the term TECHLUXE®, and to build HiPhi X into a game-changer in the world 
of smart electric cars."

In terms of specific functionality, the HiPhi X truly is a world-leader in 
innovation; the vehicle features:

- World-first mass-produced secure, developer-enabled HOA electrical 
architecture on a production vehicle
- World-first touch-free, door-handle-free production vehicle
- World-first production vehicle with touch-free, facial recognition entry
- World-first production vehicle equipped with ISD (Intelligent Signal Display)
- World leading safety technology in remote battery management
- World-first smart vehicle to utilize graphical programming interface
- World-first production vehicle with customizable immersive cockpit
- World-first production vehicle with AI creation capability – poetry, 
paintings, and music
- World-first production car with multi-functional Touch-Pad steering wheel
- World-first Level 4 Autonomous Valet Parking (AVP) system on a production 
- World-first 5G-V2X technology equipped on a production vehicle

The HiPhi X rejects the notion of having to choose between either performance 
or comfort by providing both. A super-long wheelbase minimizes the space 
occupied by the powertrain and maximizes the amount of space for occupants. The 
result is a large vehicle with dimensions of 5.2m / 2.62m / 1.618m but with an 
ultra-low drag coefficient of 0.27Cd. The car also features two 220 kW motors 
positioned on the front and rear axle, allowing it to accelerate from 0-100km/h 
in 3.9 seconds. The large-capacity 97 kW hour battery, CrossLoop energy 
management, and cloud battery management system combine to achieve the perfect 
balance of energy, battery life, safety, and comfort. 

Despite its size, the SUV is extremely nimble as the rear-wheel steering allows 
for a 10° swing in either direction. This means the 5.2m long HiPhi X has a 
turning radius of 11.6 m, comparable to that of a small car. Also, with a range 
of 550km (Founders Edition) or 630km (Extended Range), it can meet the needs of 
any driving condition; from use in urban areas, rural inter-city travel, 
high-speeds, or low-temperatures, this supercar can handle it all.

Away from hardware, the HiPhi X boasts some of the world's most sophisticated 
in-vehicle software functionality. Starting with the HiPhi Pilot, this in-built 
system allows passengers to experience Level 3 autonomous driving and is the 
first production model to be equipped with this technology in China. The HiPhi 
Pilot can take control of six important driving systems in the vehicle: 
perception of surroundings, information monitoring, braking, power, steering, 
and distance calculation. The system is safe and reliable, allowing drivers to 
take their hands, foot, and eyes away from the road without concern. 

Parking has also been automated with the world's first Level 4 Autonomous Valet 
Parking (AVP) system built into a production vehicle. The AVP technology works 
by using fixed sensory equipment of lasers, radar and communications devices to 
automatically navigate supported parking garages, park the vehicle safely and 
then summon the vehicle when required. 

Perhaps one of the most talked-about features of the HiPhi X is the unique wing 
door design or ''NT Doors''. Opening either up or out, the doors are completely 
touch-free and can be unlocked by facial recognition software. Passengers have 
many option of how to open their smart-doors providing more versatility and 
convenience than standard, spacious SUVs. 

Inside, drivers are greeted by a state-of-the-art UX display system supported 
by a Microsoft-engineered AI-assistant, HiPhiGo, and a TouchPad multi-function 
steering wheel. Equipped with 5G-V2X technology and featuring a world-best 
in-car data transmission bandwidth, the HiPhi X continuously monitors itself 
and its surroundings using more than 562 in-built sensors and adapts with 
over-the-air updates. As with everything in the car, these features are 
developed specifically for use in this vehicle and work together harmoniously 
to create a complete experience. 

Towards the end of 2020, the HiPhi X will be produced in small volumes and will 
be officially released to the market in 2021. It will be a truly unique user 
experience underpinned by "design defined by scenarios, vehicle defined by 
software, and value defined by co-creation". The HiPhi X is built for pioneers 
around the world who want to be a part of this hi-tech revolution.
