Italian styling studio Pininfarina has taken the covers off its new creation, the electric Model E sedan sedan for Hai Technology Group (Foxconn), at the International MotorXpo Hong Kong (IMXHK) 2021.
Foxconn is a global leader in smart manufacturing and is diversifying into electric vehicles.The Model E will be on display from December 1-5 in the Designer Zone at the AsiaWorld-Expo.
The Model E, the first step in a strategic collaboration that will continue for the future between Pininfarina and Hon Hai, is a technologically innovative luxury flagship sedan that can meet the needs of middle and high-end consumers. The rear seat space can transform into a dedicated mobile office, with personal mobile devices seamlessly connected to the passenger car, enabling a series of smart applications such as face recognition door opening, smart windows and vehicle and environment interfaces.
750hp and 750km range
The Model E boasts high performance and advanced dynamic control technology. It delivers a power output of about 750 horsepower and achieves 0 to 100kph acceleration in just 2.8 seconds, better than comparable models in the market and almost at the pace of a Formula One racing car. The Model E also has a 750km range to address the range anxiety of most electric car users.
“We are very proud to show the audience of the IMXHK a model that represents the best of Pininfarina's expertise as well as our vision for the future of electric mobility,” said Silvio Angori, CEO Pininfarina. “Foxtron is the ideal partner for our Company because we share the same propensity for innovation and the attention to environmental sustainability.”
The Model E was entirely built in the Pininfarina atelier in Cambiano, where over the years unique models, small series, showcars and prototypes for the most prestigious automotive brands have been hand built by a highly skilled team.
Pininfarina’s design team was responsible for defining the style of both the exteriors and the interiors of the Model E, including the experience that the user will live inside the car. One of the main features are the smart surfaces on the front, aside and the rear of the vehicle which demonstrate the way the vehicle communicate with the outside world. This smart surfaces are contained within a beautiful vehicle showing its power, its sportivity and at the same time the elegance that you’d expect from Pininfarina. Also in the interior the Model E shows a combination of classic, advanced, state of the art technology to create something absolutely unique.
