It's called Project X by Taiwan-based Foxconn-initiated MIH Consortium. What it signifies is an open and agnostic EV platform for innovators, made by the innovators.

The idea that MIH is proposing is a solution to lowering the entry barrier for aspiring companies entering the electric vehicle market.

The concept will allow customers, in this case companies, to customise vehicles based on their marketing niches. To make it easier for partners and potential customers to understand the open and agnostic nature of MIH and to realise technologies developed by the MIH Working Groups, MIH released the Project X timeline and exterior design for the first time and this A-segment three-seater demo car is expected to be presented by the end of 2023.

MIH is enabling innovators to create the future of mobility for the next generation by building an open EV ecosystem with the BYOV (Build Your Own Vehicle) model. MIH sees this approach fulfilling the needs of different audiences for car sharing companies, mobility service providers, fleet operators, logistics service providers, and new EV brands. “MIH is writing the next chapter of the future of mobility. Project X is a demonstration of a new EV platform for the ecosystem. We’re not only making cars but also enabling the creation of more lifestyles,” said Jack Cheng, CEO of MIH Consortium.
