SHANGHAI – According to data released by the China Automotive Technology & Research Center, HiPhi X was the best-selling luxury electric vehicle with MSRP more than 500,000 RMB in both December and the second half of 2021. Designed and manufactured by industry-leading new mobility and intelligent driving company Human Horizons, the HiPhi X is equipped with the latest in technological innovation and all of the trimmings of a luxury vehicle to create a new segment of cars, TECHLUXE®.
With 919 vehicle sold in December and total 3,742 in the second half of 2021, the HiPhi X captured the top spot over prestigious international and domestic automakers such as Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Hongqi. This marks the first time a domestic car manufacturer has topped sales chart in the luxury segment for vehicles priced at more than 500,000 RMB. Since its debut in May 2021, 4,237 HiPhi X vehicles have been delivered to customers in nearly 200 cities across the country.
Regarding the sales performance, Human Horizons founder Ding Lei said, “At Human Horizons, we are driven by innovations, and we believe that the HiPhi X gives users an unprecedented driving experience in terms of both technical functionality and comfort. We also believe in the power of domestic R&D and manufacturing; we are proud to be Made in China, and so are our customers. I think these numbers reflect that fact.”
In order to meet the growing consumer demand, Human Horizons is rapidly expanding across the country. Currently, the company has 37 showrooms, 17 delivery centers, and 155 service centers in 147 cities. The Company has greatly expanded its charging network in 2021, which is now supported by more than 270,000 charging stations in more than 500 cities across the country. Meanwhile, Human Horizons has established an additional R&D facility in the tech-friendly city of Chengdu in Western China and has recently consolidated its design, engineering and corporate functions into the brand new Shanghai Operations Center.
As a company, Human Horizons is dedicated to creating vehicles that combine both the latest in technological innovation with premium-quality luxury comforts, defining a new segment of cars, TECHLUXE®. Underpinning the HiPhi brand of vehicles are three guiding principles, design defined by features, vehicles defined by software, and value defined by co-creation.
