Would you buy China’s Tesla killer for $120,000?

It's being called the 'Tesla killer' for a reason.

This is China’s very own version of the Tesla and it will set you back $120,000. 

Called the HiPhi X, it’s a fully electric luxury crossover from Human Horizons.

The car is the second from the EV brand and has been crowned China’s best-selling luxury EV.

And it’s no surprise, because the tech inside this car is insane.

The front of the car has massive headlights connected to an LED strip that spans the width of the vehicle. 

One of the coolest features of the car has to be the headlights.


The headlights display fun images including smiley faces, hearts, thumbs up and thumbs down signals.

And they can be changed at will by the driver. 

The thumbs-down signal in particular might come in handy in peak hour traffic.

The car designers paired suicide doors with Batmobile gull-wing doors, and the result is incredible.

When the doors open, a panel on the roof opens with them to give the passengers more space when getting in and out.

The suicide doors will open automatically but are smart enough to sense if something’s in the way. 

If you are standing in the way, or a car is parked too close, the HiPhi will stop the doors before they hit anything.

HiPhi X interior

On the inside, you’ll find a cabin big enough to seat six people.

The HiPhi, provided to Supercar Blondie by 66 Motors, has One Touch tech which controls the air conditioning, heating, windows and lighting. 

Passengers in the backseat can also customize their seats for maximum comfort, sliding them left and right as well as backwards and forwards.

And when it comes to tech, there’s a massive 14.6 inch display screen in front of the driver, a 16.9 inch screen in the centre, and a 19.9 inch wide screen in front of the passenger. 

The interior has an overwhelmingly futuristic look to it, but if you look closely, it’s compromised by the use of cheap-looking plastic covers. 

On a brighter note, the seats are covered in vegan leather, with bright orange stitching to give them a pop of color.

The car has front and rear motors which produce an impressive 598 horsepower. 

And despite its 2500kg weight, the HiPhi X can go from 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds. 

While that’s all very impressive, it’s not a cheap car, retailing for around $120,000 USD.
