The Pininfarina-styled H600 concept has made its mark on the Geneva Motor Show this year and it turns out it won’t fade out of memory as a show prototype – with reports of a production model coming in 2020.
This model could even reach the United States at the start of the next decade, even though its parent company is a Chinese EV startup called – which are usually making cars for their own market. The car’s 5.2-meter stature dressed in Pininfarina clothes should also find its way into the production model mostly untouched, with HK board member Carter Yeung hinting that “85 to 90” percent of the final design has been premiered by the Geneva show car. The strategy will involve series production in China after first delivering a trial run in Italy at Pininfarina’s plant.
If all goes well, the upcoming new Tesla Model S rival should come out in more than 200,000 examples each year within the next five to ten years. The H600 concept will also deliver the technical specifications to the road going model, complete with electric motors packing more than 804 horsepower (600 kW) and a sprint time of 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in just 2.9 seconds, with top speed of 155 mph (250 kph). In addition, the 4,122 pounds (1,870 kilograms) all-aluminum chassis has been fitted with a micro turbine generator range extender enabling the use of electric power for the motor and the battery “anytime, anywhere, and with no need for charging pits and social grids.”
