The teaser image above gives us an idea of what Qoros has in store, with "German-inspired styling, contemporary rugged detailing and coupe-like upper body lines for a strong, muscular appeal." The design process was undertaken by teams in Munich and Shanghai, lead by the company's design chief Gert Hildebrand. Though details remain few and far between, the concept promises a plug-in hybrid powertrain with all-wheel drive and "hands-free charging."
If put into production, the Qoros 2 would be a marked departure for the joint venture between Chery and the shipping giant Israel Corporation. While its concepts have taken the brand in different directions, each of the production models Qoros has rolled out to date have been centered around the same basic design, rendered as the Qoros 3 Sedan, Qoros 3 Hatch and Qoros 3 City SUV.
Shanghai, 14 April 2015 – New Chinese car manufacturer, Qoros, is showcasing potential future design and technology developments at the Shanghai Auto Show with the world premiere of the Qoros 2 SUV Concept.
The innovative, bold sub-compact SUV design study features striking new German-inspired styling, contemporary rugged detailing and coupe-like upper body lines for a strong, muscular appeal. Inside, occupants benefit from best-in-class space, a semi-command driving position and a minimalist design theme. A next-generation QorosQloud connectivity platform is accessed through the large Multi Media Hub touchscreen in the centre of the dash.
Created by Qoros design teams in Munich and Shanghai under the direction of Vice President of Design Gert Hildebrand, the Qoros 2 SUV Concept was conceived to appeal to young, efficiency-conscious metropolitan consumers. The B-segment contender incorporates an advanced plug-in hybrid electric four-wheel drivetrain and a unique 'hands-free' charging system.
The Qoros 2 SUV Concept points to new market segment, design and technology strategies being assessed by the brand for introduction in the coming years. It will make its global debut on 20th April at the Shanghai Auto Show.
