Foxconn Electric Fleet: two cars and a bus

Foxconn, one of the largest electronics manufacturers headquartered in Tucheng, Taiwan announced its first electric vehicles this week. The company has a strong reputation, as it has produced parts for major companies such as Apple, Amazon, Nokia, Xiaomi, Sony… Counting over one million employees, the company has a yearly revenue of over $190B. Their manufacturing processes are slowly maturing, and the company is looking for new ways to expand. That’s why in today’s article, we are going to talk about Foxconn Electric Fleet.

Foxconn alluded to their interest in EV space ever since they developed open-source hardware and software for EV manufacturers. Earlier this month, they purchased most of Lordstown’s EV manufacturing plant (excluding motor assembly line, battery module and packing line assets) for $230 million + $50 million of Lordstown stocks worth. With this, the Lordstown Motors Endurance full-size pickup vehicle would be manufactured at Foxconn’s Lordstown plant. In addition, Lordstown Motors would agree to give Foxconn certain rights in future car programs.

At the Hon Hai Tech Day 2021, the biggest news was the three electric vehicles Foxconn presented.

Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn), a global leader in smart manufacturing, today introduced for the first time, three autonomously developed electric vehicles: the Model C recreational vehicle, the Model E sedan and the Model T electric bus. The announcement was made during the livestreamed Hon Hai Tech Day 2021 (HHTD21) event, underlining Hon Hai’s commitment to become a global next-generation automotive manufacturer.

Foxconn looks to be showing its electric car manufacturing capabilities by positioning itself to build vehicles for Lordstown, Fisker, and even Apple, its largest partner.

Let’s look at the vehicles that were announced.

Foxtron Model C

  • 0.27 drag coefficient
  • 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds
  • extended range of up to 700km (430 miles)
  • 5+2 seater SUV

The Model C is the first car to be developed on Hon Hai’s open platform for electric vehicles, and it is marketed as an inherently optimized electric SUV with pure electric nature. Shape, space, power, and energy usage are the four main characteristics of Model C. Its design is not only minimalist in appearance, but it also reduces the amount of space needed for mechanical components while increasing seating space. The Model C is 4.64 meters long with a 2.86-meter wheelbase, with comfortable seating for 5+2 people and lots of storage space, making it simple to maneuver busy urban regions while still enjoying the luxury of a bigger automobile.

Foxtron Model E

The Model E is a technologically advanced luxury flagship sedan created jointly by Hon Hai and Italian design studio Pininfarina that can fulfill the demands of medium and high-end buyers. With personal mobile devices easily connected to the passenger car, the back seat may be transformed into a dedicated mobile office, enabling a variety of smart applications such as facial recognition door opening, smart windows, and vehicle and environment interfaces.

The power under the hood of this sedan will look something like this: 750 horsepower with 0-100km/h acceleration at 2.8 seconds. Kilometer-wise, the range of this model will be the same as the number of horsepower.

Foxtron Model T

The Model T is a beautiful urban bus that is positioned as an intelligent transportation option. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) rules and standards are met by its highly rigid body design and protection. The Model T has also undergone 200,000 kilometers of accelerated endurance testing and over 1,000 hours of rigid strength testing at the Automotive Research & Testing Center (ARTC), guaranteeing the safety of both drivers and passengers.
