Chinese manufacturer Qoros has revealed a new sub-compact hybrid SUV at the Shanghai motor show, dubbed the 2 SUV PHEV Concept.

According to the firm, it strongly hints at the brand’s future design strategy and is aimed at 'trendy, creative young people'.

Measuring 4.1m long, 2.03m wide and 1.5m high, Qoros says the design of the concept combines 'Shanghai spirit with German-inspired design', which aims to give the car a muscular and robust stance.

The concept's exterior body features vertically-mounted front and rear lights, a V-shape front bumper, chrome-finished front grille frame, roof rails and a panoramic glass roof.

Its colour scheme aims to pay homage to Chinese tradition with paintwork finished in 'Misty Cyan' - a light green and blue colour, with red accent details that hark back to historic Chinese art.

It's powered by a plug-in hybrid system with four-wheel drive. A small turbocharged petrol engine powers the front wheels, while two electric motors power the rear wheels. Qoros is yet to release further information on the displacement of the engine, range or specific outputs. 

Drivers have the option to select from four different driving modes, including - Pure Electric, Sport, Permanent All-Wheel Drive and Hybrid.

The Qoros 2 SUV's charging technology is inspired by an aircraft refuelling system, called ‘Don’t touch a cable’. The electric charging point rises from the front of the car at the touch of a button to meet the 'receiver' sockets on the charging pod.

Inside, the Qoros 2 SUV has a full colour digital instrument cluster, dual-zone climate control and Qoros' own multimedia system with a cloud-enhanced connectivity platform, called 'QorosQloud'.

@erly5. I couldn't agree more.

I really like is. It's not

I really like is. It's not pretty, or handsome, but something about it appeals. The rear lights remind me of the ones from a Citroen C6

Looks great

At least its not the usual Chinese clone of a western design...It's different and refreshing. Why do the haters always want bland, conservative designs to appeal to the masses. Different is good sometimes!
