Chinese clone Tesla Model X was better than the original

by Henry Brown


The Chinese copy of the Tesla Model X turned out to be better than the original in terms of power reserve. The name of the replica is HiPhi X. The author of the clone is Human Horizons, a company specializing in the production of electric vehicles and autopilots.

The manufacturer presented the concept of the novelty in 2019. It took the developer about a year to eliminate the defects traditional for “raw” cars. There are almost no visual differences between the conceptual and production versions.

The sample, prepared for launch in mass production, fully retained the dimensions and layout of the cabin (5.2 m in length, seating arrangement 2-2-2, ventilation, massage and heating of the first two rows of seats, etc.). The only difference from the concept shown a year ago is the abandonment of cameras in favor of rear-view mirrors.

Representatives of Human Horizons are silent about the details of the power plant. At the same time, the company’s speakers are ready to talk about the battery for hours. The reason for this talkativeness is the ability of the 96-kilowatt battery to provide a greater range compared to the original (610 km for the HiPhi X versus about 500 km for the Model X).

Representatives of the developer also boasted that their brainchild had an autopilot of the III level and the ability of new items to receive updates “over the air”.

Human Horizons Corporation is based in Shanghai. Year of its foundation – 2017. Locations of production facilities – years. Yancheng and Jinqiao. The official website of the organization is www.human-horizons.com.
