HiPhi, one of the best-selling premium EV brands in China, has announced European pricing for its X and Z models.
The HiPhi X and the HiPhi Z are now available to order in Germany and Norway and the first vehicles are already registered for road use, following inspection by TÜV SÜD. Customers will soon be able to experience the dual flagship models at Europe’s first HiPhi Hub showroom, located at Munich Airport.
The HiPhi X is an all-electric luxury super SUV which features a number of world and industry firsts, blending cutting-edge technology with luxury and advanced design, including no-touch automatic wing-opening doors. Its powertrain combines 220kW dual motors at the front and rear, allowing for 0-62mph (100km/h) in 3.9 seconds, while a 97kWh battery pack provides a potential range of 460km under Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) conditions.
Four and six-seat configurations will be offered, with the latter able to accommodate adults in the rearmost third row. Just as in China, all cars will come extremely well equipped with world-class technology. Prices in Germany and Norway are:
HiPhi X six-seater €109,000

It delivers a maximum output of 494kW via dual electric motors, to provide acceleration from 0-62mph (100km/h) in 3.8 seconds. The 120kWh battery offers a potential 555km range under WLTP conditions.
The model showcases a host of innovations, including the world-first HiPhi Bot, a robotic, multi-axis arm infotainment system with four degrees of freedom and eight-direction high-speed motion that can rotate between portrait and landscape modes.
European customers will be able to choose between four and five-seat configurations of the car, with HiPhi again adopting a pricing strategy that is both competitive and reflective of the advanced engineering and technology included in HiPhi Z.

The first customers will receive their cars within the third quarter of 2023.
HiPhi CTO and co-founder Mark Stanton said: “The HiPhi X established itself as the best-selling luxury EV in China, and the HiPhi Z has also been extremely well received. Now comes the first opportunity for European customers to find out why the cars have made such a phenomenal impact. Their unique combination of luxury and advanced technologies brings buyers in Germany and Norway an entirely new driving experience. And this two-market start forms a perfect launchpad for us to extend our operations across the continent, with the aim of covering main European countries by 2027.”
The HiPhi X and the HiPhi Z will be followed by the HiPhi Y, which was recently revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show. Fully designed and engineered for European markets, it will mark an acceleration in volumes with first customer orders to be taken by the end of 2023.
