Prototype which debuted in Shanghai, shows us not only what the brand serial subcompact crossover will look like, but also the future of hybrid models. It is not so easy to understand that this is Qoros, only the model line of the side windows shows this. In general “flat” SUV resembles little Qoros 3 models. Do these cars have the same platform? This was not reported, though it is known that the wheelbase is 2600mm (2690 mm is Qoros 3 wheelbase size). By the way, the length of the off-road vehicle is 4181 mm, width with the side mirrors – 2030 mm, and height – 1553 mm.

Under the hood of a new crossover there is small turbo engine. Also engineers installed two traction motors powered by lithium-ion batteries with high energy density. You can choose one of the four modes of the power plant operation – a hybrid, electric, sports and “permanent four-wheel drive.”
