Hyper, a sub-brand of GAC Aion, has unveiled a new model, the Hyper HT, and has begun pre-sales of it, one version of which features falcon-wing doors similar to those on the Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model X.

Hyper officially unveiled the Hyper HT, its third model and the brand's first SUV, at a launch event last night.

The Hyper HT is a mid-to-large-sized all-electric SUV with a pre-sale starting price of RMB 220,000 yuan ($30,080).
