Apple supplier Foxconn (Hon Hai) is getting into the EV race with the Model C recreational vehicle, the Model E sedan and the Model T electric bus. The vehicle above is the Model E, which was developed by Hon Hai and Italian design firm Pininfarina. No technical specifications were revealed, but we do know that the rear seat space can transform into a dedicated mobile office. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
Model C is the first model built on Hon Hai’s electric vehicle open platform and highlights four core features: shape, space, power and energy consumption. In addition to its minimalist design, it reduced the necessary area for mechanical components, while maximizing seating space, resulting in comfortable seating for 5+2 people as well as a host of storage space. Last, but not least, there’s the Model T urban bus sporting a rigid body design and protection that fully meets the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) regulations. So far, it has completed 200,000km of acceleration endurance test and more than 1,000 hours of rigid strength tests at the Automotive Research & Testing Center (ARTC) Testing.
