FROM PHONES TO CARS – Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that assembles iPhones on behalf of Apple, has formed a joint venture with compatriot Yulon Motor to enter the automotive world in style. The new company is called Foxtron and a few days ago he presented the prototypes of three electric models designed on a proprietary platform: the Model C suv, the sedan Templates and the model T bus (who learn more).
LUXURY LOUNGE – The sedan Foxtron model E was developed with the collaboration of Pininfarina. And it shows. The style is elegant, proportionate and devoid of decorative elements of questionable taste that would ruin the forms. From a technical point of view, the E model has a Power overall about 750 hp, which accelerate from 0 to 100 km in 2.8 seconds. THE’autonomy is instead of 750 km. Maximum care was then reserved for comfort and luxury. The interiors, as elegant as the exteriors, can in fact count on quality finishes and durable materials. Behind the steering wheel is a large central screen that performs the function of instrumentation, on the sides of which there are additional touch panels that are more intended for the functionality of the multimedia system. Being a sedan also designed for long journeys, if necessary, the rear space turns into a real mobile office, with the possibility of using the integrated screens.
THE DECLARATIONS – “Our design team – explains the creative director of Pininfarina, Kevin Rice – was responsible for the exterior and interior styling of the Templates, including the user experience inside the car. One of the main features are the smart surfaces on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle that show how the vehicle communicates with the outside world. These are enclosed in beautiful shapes which show off the power and sportiness of the vehicle and, at the same time, the elegance that you would expect from Pininfarina. Also inside you can see a combination of elegance and technology avant-garde to create something absolutely unique. “Even the CEO of Pininfaria, Silvio Angori, expresses his satisfaction with the project:” We are very proud to show the world a model that represents the best of skills of Pininfarina and is the first step in an important strategic collaboration between the two companies. With Foxtron, we share the same values, such as the propensity for innovation and attention to environmental sustainability. We now have a partner to jointly explore the future of electric mobility ”.
