Hongqi, part of auto giant FAW, continues to earn points in the global market. Next in line is a luxurious car new – a large crossover E-HS9, whose length exceeded the mark of five meters.

The flagship Hongqi E-HS9, dubbed the Chinese Rolls-Royce, was officially shown for the first time. The local press got acquainted with the appearance of the novelty during a visit to the brand’s design center.

Recall, before rolling out the new flagship model, the company showed the Hongqi E115 concept car – it became a participant in last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. Also in terms of design, the novelty is unified with the Hongqi H9 sedan. By the way, both models owe their spectacular appearance to ex-Rolls-Royce designer Giles Taylor.

The exterior of the novelty is distinguished by the original radiator grille, “predatory” optics, fashionable sliding door handles, etc. There have not yet been official images of the Hongqi E-HS9 salon.

Thanks to photo spies, we know that the crossover will receive three displays: dashboard, multimedia and climate control. On the technical side, there are no secrets: it will be an electric car, available for purchase in two modifications. The base crossover will receive two electric motors with the same output – 218 horsepower each. The top variant gets a 218-horsepower electric motor (on the front axle) and 333-horsepower on the rear. The declared battery capacity is 92.4 kW ∙ h, and the power reserve of the novelty is expected to exceed 500 kilometers.

The luxury electrocross should debut in 2020. At the same time, the brand is going to bring the gasoline HS9 to the market.

Meanwhile, the Chery Arrizo Star sedan made its debut at the motor show in Chengdu, China. It is based on the classic Chery Arrizo GX model. This did not stop the two sedans from being radically different from each other. The brand has attracted outside specialists to work on Zvezda.
