The form of this concept car is an all electric-powered grand tourer. At the front it looks aggressive with a thin main light line on the edge and enlarges in the middle.
While on the back, it reminds us of the figure of the Mercedes-AMG GT thanks to its oval-shaped rear lights. Like other electric cars, this car does not have a conventional grille, then replaced with vertical LED lights that will help the lighting when driving at night.
