In late november Qoros showed a design-study that looked like a very ugly cow. The real thing however seems to look a whole lot better, in a sportback-kinda way.

The factory is based in the great city of Changshu in Jiangsu province and the RD Center in Shanghai. Quantum and Chery have to far invested 3.40 billion yuan, or 534 million US dollar. Engines will be newly designed by the Austrian company AVL and made in China by Chery.

What sort of engines will be used is yet unsure but considering Qoros wants to compete with the likes of Acura, Luxus, Infiniti, Volvo, and ultimately the German Three, there should at least be a V6.
