Human Horizons has unveiled more details on its digital GT HiPhi Z. Redefining the traditional GT model, the HiPhi Z comes equipped with new technologies that work to enhance the driving experience.
Outside, the doors leverage a smart ISD interactive system and UWB wireless communication technology with 10cm-level positioning. This allows the EV to automatically detect people, keys, and surrounding vehicles.
Inside the cabin features a fully digital setup headed by HiPhi Bot, an AI companion capable of automatically adjusting many aspects of the user experience. The assistant interacts with passengers and comes with a 8-direction, adjustable, robotic arm that can perform a variety of delicate movements . Further along the interior is a 23-speaker Meridian audio system and racing bucket seats.
Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds, the car comes with rear-wheel steering and an IVC vehicle dynamic control system that generates a steering angle of 13.2 degrees. The vehicle’s 120kWh high-performance battery pack leverages Cell to Pack technology and cooling liquids to offer heat diffusion and help prevent fires while providing up to 705 km of battery life.
Powering the vehicle’s ADAS is the OEM’s proprietary HiPhi Pilot system, which provides dual-redundancy for perception, communication, braking, steering, and power supply. In further enabling advanced safety safety, the HiPhi Z leverages an NVIDIA Orin X chip and BlackBerry’s QNX Neutrino OS to utilize 34 sensors and LiDAR technology to constantly scan its surroundings and perform assisted driving and parking functions. This combination of technologies also enables the vehicle’s smart summon feature, which see the vehicle autonomously drive to the user’s location.
The HiPhi Z’s pricing will range from $89,000 to $129,000 and, in the lead-up to further details being announced, it will be on display in Shenzhen from July 6. Human Horizons plans to debut the EV further across 11 key major cities. The OEM also confirmed that the HiPhi Z’s launch date will be announced at the Chengdu Auto Show in August, where interested users will be able to test drive the vehicle.
