Hongqi showing up its 2 futuristic car concepts at Frankfurt

One of the Chinese luxury car brands, Hongqi (translates as "Red flag") was listed as one of the surprise participants at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, considering that so many other auto brands that were far more popular in Europe just not shown up.

At the Hongqi booth in those auto expo was seen showing two units of its production vehicles, but they only served the purpose to raise knowledge and awareness among the exhibition visitors on the luxury auto brand owned by FAW Group.

1. Hongqi S9 Hypercar
The first and can be said to be the spectacular is the Hongqi S9 which was their first self-designed and made hypercar. According to the head of FAW Group, Xu Liuping, the Hongqi S9 concept packs a "V8T hybrid power system," leading us to believe that this powertrain combines a V8 turbo petrol engine with one or several electric motors as its driving force.

The Chinese manufacturer claims the S9 hybrid powertrain is capable of producing maximum power of up to 1,400 horsepower, thus enabling the hypercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 1.9 seconds and its top speed reaches up to 400 kph. Even though it sounds crazy, Hongqi said that they really will produce this S9 hypercar.

"S9 is not just an exhibition car, it will be put into mass production and sent to the customers in 2021," Xu said. And the price for the Hongqi's first hypercar with a carbon fiber body with butterfly door type is reportedly touching the figure of 2 million Euros (US. $2.2 million).

2. Hongqi E115 SUV
The second is the Hongqi E115, this is an electric SUV that is claimed to offer a mileage of 600 km (373 miles). The Chinese company also said that their AWD SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in less than 4 seconds.

Furthermore this China company does not provide details about electric motors and batteries. Only, it was said that this concept vehicle featured the Level 4 autonomous driving technology.
And the car's front looks a bit reminiscent us to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan figure. This is not surprising, considering that the current Hongqi's head of design is Gilles Taylor who used to work for the British luxury brand. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | ENUZE]
