Foxconn’s strategy to carve out an ever wider space in the automotive sector it is very ambitious as we have seen in recent months. In fact, the company has entered into collaboration agreements with various car manufacturers. Now, Foxconn has unveiled prototypes of its first three electric models during the Hon Hai Tech Day 2021 event. Model C SUV, Model E sedan and Model T bus. The vehicles feature the Foxtron brand which is a joint venture formed by Foxconn with Yulon Motor.
The details shared on these models are few. The cars must also be seen as showcases of the potential of the electric vehicle platform that Foxconn has developed for all its customers. In any case, these models will actually be produced and therefore we will see them arrive on the road in the future.
Going into detail, the Model C is an electric SUV designed to offer space, performance and low fuel consumption. The company says the design is minimalist. In addition, it was possible to minimize the spaces used by the mechanical components to maximize the internal space. The Model C it is 4.64 meters long with a wheelbase of 2.86 meters and offers 7 seats and a good load capacity.
It has a CX of 0.27 and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds. The autonomy reaches 700 km. The Model E sedan, on the other hand, was also created thanks to the collaboration with Pininfarina. This model is to be seen as the future flagship that will offer both luxury and technology. A model capable of satisfying, Foxconn points out, the needs of mid-range and high-end consumers.
A vehicle also designed for companies as the rear space can be transformed into a place to work. Not only luxury and comfort, however, but also performance. According to what has been declared, the car will be able to count on around 750 hp (552 kW). Power that will allow acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.8 seconds. Model E will have a range of 750 km.
The Model T, on the other hand, is a bus that has already passed several reliability tests and has a battery that can deliver up to 400 km of autonomy. Accumulator that can also guarantee safety since it resists temperatures up to 400 degrees. Under full load conditions, it can climb slopes of up to 25%. The maximum speed is 120 km / h.
The sedan will be sold by an unspecified automaker outside of Taiwan in the next few years, while the SUV will be sold under one of Yulon’s brands and is expected to hit the market in Taiwan in 2023. The bus, which will carry the Foxtron brand, will begin circulating in several cities in southern Taiwan next year in partnership with a local transportation service provider.
