China-based HiPhi, Human Horizons' premium smart all-electric vehicle brand, and Meridian, the British pioneer of high resolution audio, have announced their collaboration on audio solutions for the HiPhi vehicle range.

The strategic partnership sees Meridian provide a premium audio system that is integrated into the automotive interior to provide the 'driver and passengers with an authentic and immersive in-car experience'. Meridian will become an important partner for HiPhi and this premium audio system will arrive in the HiPhi X, the first application in a Chinese brand.

"Meridian's breakthrough technology – which you have to hear to believe – exemplifies our innovative spirit and will categorically set us apart from others in the industry," said Ding Lei, CEO and founder at Human Horizons and HiPhi. "We are revolutionizing future automotive interior design by radically pushing boundaries."

"HiPhi's ambitions in vehicle engineering and design makes this a very exciting partnership for us," said John Buchanan, CEO of Meridian. "Our customers already enjoy high performance audio in their home, and with this new collaboration they will be able to embrace the same experience in their HiPhi vehicle."

Meridian Engineers have supported system designs to strategically position speakers around the vehicle, allowing each passenger to 'enjoy an audio experience of unparalleled quality'.
