Ultra-luxury electric cars: Hongqi S9



The Hongqi S9, China’s first ultra-luxury electric vehicle, is an explosive result of the partnership between First Automobile Works (FAW), one of China’s leading automobile manufacturers, and Italian engineering company Silk EV. Hongqi S9 has a seamless beauty with delicious curves and specific features that make for an aerodynamic design.

Introduced at the 2021 Shanghai International Auto Show, the Roadster features a 1,400-hp V8 hybrid engine, allowing the supercar to reach an impressive top speed of 250 mph. It takes 1.9 seconds for the car to go from standstill to 62 mph, making it one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the world. The car will be able to run at least 25 miles using battery power alone. Consumers can place orders for Hongqi S9 from 2021.
