Brand Hongqi showed images of the new electric crossover. The model will be presented in the second half of 2023, and it will enter the so-called NEV family, new energy vehicles. According to unofficial information, the crossover, which so far appears under the E202 index, will receive intelligent all-wheel drive, air suspension and 800-volt electrical architecture, thanks to which it will be charged for 300 km of travel in just five minutes.
At the beginning of 2023, FAW published a global strategy for the development of new energy vehicles. Among other things, this plan called for the splitting of the Hongqi brand into four separate sub-brands: New Energy Vehicle (NEV), Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), Luxury Vehicle and Sports Car. Everyone supposedly will have relative freedom in choosing a concept, design language and their own logo. And recently, the brand showed the firstborn of the NEV line – the E202 electric crossover.
Judging by the renders, the appearance of the SUV is a further evolution of the style created for Hongqi by Rolls-Royce native Giles Taylor. You can see narrow optics, carbon fiber body kit parts, lidar on the roof and the NEV logo in the form of wings.
