Foxconn’s first ‘Foxtron’ electric car spotted ahead of unveiling
Foxconn, better known as the iPhone maker of Apple, has been working on electric cars and now its first vehicle has been spotted before the unveiling.
It is marketed under the Foxtron brand.
The company has made a lot of movement in the electric vehicle space lately.
Last year, it had developed an open-source hardware and software platform for manufacturing electric vehicles and was working on developing a solid-state battery by 2024.
Earlier this month, Foxconn even bought most of the Lordstown, Ohio plant to produce electric vehicles.
In addition, the manufacturing giant is also building a large factory in Wisconsin and is expected to produce electric vehicles there.
Now, the first Foxtron-branded electric vehicle has been spotted on its expedition for its unveiling (photos via Autohome):
The vehicle appears to be a crossover or even a wagon-style car. The picture also shows that it has a large screen behind the wheel.
It is expected to be unveiled at an event on October 18 along with two other models.
Previous reports have stated that Foxconn aims to start mass production of the new Foxtron electric vehicles in the United States and Thailand in 2023.
We should find out more about these plans next week.
In addition to its plans to sell its own electric vehicles, Foxconn is known to be in talks to produce electric vehicles for Lordstown, Fisker and even potentially Apple.
