The Tesla Model X stands out for its upward-opening 2-piece rear doors. The Chinese firm Human Horizons has gone even further in its own electric car by dividing the doors into two separate parts. One of them opens against the direction of travel, and the second opens up.

The new model, which is the serial version of the HiPhi 1 concept, has acquired the name HiPhi X. Judging by the debut photos, the new model will acquire simple rear-view mirrors instead of cameras and more traditional design elements compared to last year’s concept. The original rear doors will remain intact.

HiPhi X will receive a length of 5.2 meters, and inside the cabin it is worth noting the presence of three rows of seats, two seats in each. As for the dynamic performance of the new model, it will be able to accelerate to the first 100 kph in just 3.9 seconds, in turn, the autonomy will be 610 km according to the NEDC standard (battery capacity – 96 kW / h).

It is worth saying that the production of a non-standard electric car will be established in Yancheng, China. Sales are scheduled to start next fall.

In addition, Citroen recently demonstrated the Citroen C4 electric car. It should be emphasized that in Paris, the electric car was shown to the leadership of the brand, while 2500 journalists watched the demonstration remotely.
