Skywell Skyworth Skyhome

A crazy electric vehicle that will go into production next year was been presented by Skywell, a large Chinese electronics company. It is becoming more and more challenging to distinguish between EVs arriving from China. Thankfully, Skywell's invention stands out from the competition thanks to a number of cutting-edge features.

We acknowledge that the moniker Skyhome is a tongue-twister, but the car will be made by Skywell's Skyworth automotive subsidiary. According to local media, this research represents 90% of the final production model, which is anticipated to retail for 220,000–250,000 yuan, or around $31,000–$35,000 at current currency rates.

Probably the first thing you'll notice about the automobile is how sleek it appears. With a flowing front fascia that houses LED headlamps and an LED light bar, the appearance of the Skyworth Skyhome concept car is strikingly curved in contrast to the majority of current cars, which are characterised by harsh edges and straight lines. It also boasts a panoramic glass top, flush door handles, digital wing mirrors, and a full-width LED light strip installed by the firm. Still, the cabin has the most interesting elements.

The infotainment screen, gauge cluster, and screen in front of the passenger are all housed in a large curved screen that is mounted on the dashboard. The idea also has a cool yoke-style steering wheel, sophisticated ambient lighting, and a variety of different materials.

Thanks to a large flexible screen that glides down from the ceiling, passengers in the rear seats will have an especially opulent, technologically advanced experience. The centre console's back has a sizable refrigerator as well. at addition, there are two tray tables and screens at the back of the front headrests. As if that weren't enough, there is a foot massage feature and the ability to recline the back seats into a sleeping position. It appears to be a personal jet on wheels.

According to reports, Skyworth will offer the Skyhome in both two- and all-wheel drive configurations. With two electric motors producing 617 horsepower (460 kW), the flagship model should reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds. Rear-axle steering and air suspension are further features of the vehicle.

When the company intends to reveal the vehicle in its production-ready configuration is yet unknown.
