Check out the new concept electric SUV Hongqi E115
The concept SUV, which the automaker confirmed will go into production, features an external design inspired by Rolls-Royces “World’s most Luxurious SUV”, the Cullinan — That’s probably because Hongqi’s current design boss Gilles Taylor used to work for the British luxury brand.
The All-wheel-drive off-road vehicle boast a batterypack that gives a range of 600 kilometers (373 miles) on a fullcharge.
The power train can achieve a zero to 100 km/h acceleration time in less than four seconds. No details about the electric motors and battery have been released.
Hongqi’s stand at this year’s Motor Show also has the company’s first super sports model, the Hongqi S9, on display. The 1,400 horsepower S9 boasts suicide doors, a maximum speed of 400 km/h and a 100-km acceleration within 1.9 seconds.
Hongqi, which means “Red Flag,” is also the maker of the retro styled luxury car, L5. The L5 luxury car, dubbed as the “Rolls Royce of China”, is the most expensive Chinese-made car ever.
