The Human Horizons HiPhi X has received unique rear doors and a 610-km drive range.

China-based Human Horizons, which specializes in the production of electric vehicles and the development of autonomous driving systems, has introduced its first mass-produced model. It is a full-size electric SUV, also known as the HiPhi X, the concept of which was shown last year. Even its name has an analogy with the Tesla Model X, but first things first.

One of the most intriguing design elements of the new car is its rear doors. They represent a combination of suicide doors, as that of Rolls-Royce, and gull wing doors, like in the Mercedes 300 SL.

Some doors open against the course of traffic, and the second ones with the roof just open up. Of course, these doors look very unique, but how practical they are and whether they have advantages over the Tesla X’s Falcon Wing doors is still difficult to judge.

There are no obvious differences between the production version and the concept presented earlier. The HiPhi X has retained its dimensions and still reaches a length of 5.2 m. The cabin has six seats, which are distributed in three rows according to the scheme 2+2+2.

The first and second seat rows are equipped with ventilation, heating and massage functions. The only thing that differs from the concept is conventional rear-view mirrors instead of cameras.
