Frankfurt Motor Show: Hongqi E115 electric SUV concept


Hongqi brought two concept cars to Germany; the S9 supercar (see earlier post), and this E115 electric SUV.

The E115 previews Hongqi’s new flagship pure electric SUV, which will be launched on the Chinese car market next year. It will be an ultra luxurious four-wheel drive vehicle with L4 autonomous driving capabilities and air suspension. Hongqi claims a 600 kilometer range and a 0-100 in 4 seconds.

The E115 is the first Hongqi fully designed by former Rolls-Royce design director Giles Taylor, who is working for Hongqi now. There are defenitely some Rolls-Royce design clues on the E115, especially from up front, but overall is seems a great looking car.

Hongqi calls their new design direction ‘Smart Blade’, which sounds very cool. May there be more.
