The test, organized by the Norwegian Automobile Federation and Motor magazine, aimed to establish an industry standard for EV range and charging speed. Out of the 23 participants, only one car had a deviation of less than 10 percent from the certified WLTP test numbers, and the HiPhi Z exceeded expectations with a deviation of only 5.9 percent. In total the HiPhi Z was able to achieve 522km, beating its rivals including those that theoretically had a longer WLTP certified range.
This achievement can be attributed to the revolutionary Efficient Thermal Management System developed in-house by mobility technology company Human Horizons. The CrossLoop Efficient Thermal Management System combines an efficient heat pump AC HVAC system with an intelligent and efficient E-Powertrain thermal management system. This integration creates an energy-saving, efficient, comfortable, and intelligent thermal system, outperforming competitors in the industry.
Navigating through the treacherous Dovrefjell terrain, facing the challenges posed by Storm Ingunn, the HiPhi Z triumphed with its unwavering performance. Despite the road closure over Venabygdsfjellet, the HiPhi Z demonstrated unmatched endurance, covering 522km with exceptional comfort and minimal deviation.
“Tireless innovation and unique technology development is at the heart of our company,” said Mark Stanton, Co-Founder, Chief Technical Officer, and European Program President of Human Horizons, “And our team is not only proud of this recognition but also the exceptional comfort the HiPhi Z demonstrated.”
HiPhi is a new luxury intelligent electric technology brand jointly created by Human Horizons with relevant parties, especially users, through an innovative co-creation approach. It aims to establish a closer relationship between people and the world, creating a harmonious yet different world experience.
