Human Horizons  of Shanghai, China has debuted a premium all-electric smart brand, HiPhi , with a production-ready prototype vehicle, HiPhi 1  – a premium supercar-inspired electric SUV and the first production vehicle equipped with 5G-V2X , or Vehicle-to-Everything connectivity.

5G-V2X is enabled by combining the latest V2X modules supporting LTE-Vehicle connectivity over the existing mobile network infrastructure with 5G communications and allows the vehicle and any device or system the vehicle could connect with to communicate back and forth. It is a catch-all term for combined Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), Vehicle-to-Network (V2N), Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P), Vehicle-to-Device (V2D), and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) systems.
