Electronics manufacturer Foxconn may be best known as an Apple iPhone supplier, but the company is getting into the car business -- and it's starting off with plans for multiple electric cars (and a bus). On Monday, the company shared a teaser video for its Oct. 18 Hon Hai Tech Day 2021, where it plans to reveal a "slate of electric vehicles" that seems to include E- and C-segment vehicles. And that bus.

The video shows an SUV and sedan alongside the electric bus, and the design isn't too shabby! There's a mix of Polestar, maybe some Byton vibes going on, but we'll have to see the cars revealed in full before making a final judgment. As for the bus: Well, it looks like a bus.

2014 Honda Civic: What You Need to Know

  2014 Honda Civic: What You Need to Know The 2014 Honda Civic has solid reliability and safety ratings, a premium interior, refined handling, and zippy engines. As a result, it ranks near the top of the compact car class. The 2014 Honda Civic is ranked: #1 in Used Small Cars $12K to $14K #2 in Used Compact Cars $10K to $15K #3 in 2014 Affordable Small Cars #3 in 2014 Compact Cars Is the 2014 Honda Civic a Good Used Car? Available in sedan and coupe body styles, the 2014 Honda Civic is an excellent used compact car. Its interior is comfortable, and it has an upscale look and feel. The Civic also rides smoothly on rough pavement and remains stable around turns.

These cars won't wear the Foxconn name but a new badge: Foxtron. It's a properly futuristic title for what will likely be a tech-filled vehicle lineup. The company previously announced its intentions to enter the auto sector last year when it revealed a new EV architecture. However, it sounded like Foxconn wanted to supply the bones for other companies, not start its own brand. Alas.

We also know Foxconn will work with startup Fisker to build what's called Project PEAR, and the Taiwanese giant reached an agreement to purchase the sprawling Lordstown Motors facility in Ohio as a production hub. It seems like Foxconn's moving quickly, but we'll learn a lot more on Oct. 18 when it reveals these cars.
