Great Wall’s WEY brand will launch a new concept car on the Beijing Auto Show; a fully electric and fully autonomous crossover SUV.
Design is spectacular with a protruding front fender, a short bonnet, a sharply angled windscreen, a long roof than ends in a tail fin, and wide shoulders supporting the D-pillar.
It was about time Great Wall gets serious about electric cars, as they are far behind the competition in that regard, currently selling just one electric car, a sedan under the Great Wall brand, and not a single EV or hybrid under the Haval and WEY SUV brands. WEY will soon launch the P8 PHEV, but at this for this moment there aren’t any full electrics in the pipe line.
So this new concept car might bring some much-needed inspiration to the engineers at Great Wall Motors. The enormous break light on the end of the tail fin however, probably uses more electricity than generated by braking.
When you’re behind the curve on EVs, I guess you need to be extravagant with your concepts.
What they really need are some Haval EVs as soon as possible.
