According to PR Newswire, the HiPhi X 6-seater Creative Extended Range Edition and Intelligent Extended Range Edition are “acting to raise industry standards by creating a unique premium vehicle.” Part of the reason it’s been so popular in China, the publication says, is that customers want to experience the new innovative segment of cars, TECHLUXE.

Both new models have six never-seen-before luxury features. Amenities like a 17-speaker Meridian audio system, a 19.9-inch entertainment screen for passengers, a customizable smart fragrance system by Givaudan, interior light panels, a HEPA biochemical filter, and a driver physical monitoring system. Additionally, a wide variety of tires and rims are available for customers to choose from. Lastly, each model can travel 650km or 403 miles per charge.
What makes it a “Super SUV”?
The HiPhi X Super SUV is Super because it has a few world and industry firsts. For example, the automaker boasts that it’s a global leader in technological innovation for mass-produced passenger vehicles, thanks to unique items. Things like smart programmable headlights, smart ISD interactive lamps and lighting systems, and the intuitive AI-powered HiPhi Play Interactive visual display. That’s why, according to PR Newswire, the HiPhi X is often regarded as a “car of the future.”
Human Horizons’ Super SUV HiPhi X combines the latest technological innovation with premium-quality luxury. It’s part of a new segment of cars called TECHLUXE. Using three guiding principles, Human Horizons established these badges of honor: “design defined by scenarios, vehicles defined by software, and value defined by co-creation.”
Founder and CEO, Ding Lei, on the two new models: “Our vision at Human Horizons is to redefine human mobility. To do this, we must strive to think differently from others whilst always putting the needs of our users first. The HiPhi X 6-seater Creative Extended Range Edition and Intelligent Extended Range Edition are two exceptionally luxurious cars that challenge existing passenger vehicle standards and will provide each driver with a completely unique experience.”
