Recently Foxconn revealed a direct rival to the Tesla Model Y and other similar models like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 or Volkswagen ID.4. They call it the Foxtron Model B and will be revealed in full on October 18th.
More details about this car will probably be shared closer to the planned official reveal date. Apart from that, what is already known is that production of this vehicle is planned to begin in 2024 at the Ohio plant purchased from Lordstown GM.
The plant is designed for a production capacity of 500,000 vehicles per year, and as it has done in the electronics manufacturing segment, Foxconn plans to offer its manufacturing services to third parties who do not have their own facilities and are looking to outsource.
The Foxtron Model B will not only be built in the United States, as it will also launch off the production line in China one year earlier than the US, in 2023.
The Foxtron Model B looks very modern, with Pininfarina's sharp design details, as well as a crossover and hatchback blend that blurs the two traditional body styles.
The front light bar looks futuristic with a wide design and looks unique. This unique design does not deviate from what has become the standard for EVs.
Foxtron has launched two additional models, both also designed by Pininfarina, the Model C and Model E. Designed to be built on the MiH platform, the car is available with a single or dual motor powertrain.
The Model C has a more traditional-looking SUV body shape, while the Model E is a sleek sedan designed to rival the Tesla Model 3.
All three vehicles are currently still concepts, but they all look like production-ready vehicles, so it's unlikely that there will be many design changes when they are ready to enter production.
