The Trumpchi E8 exterior uses split headlights formed by horizontal one-light bands and vertical continuous light bands, giving the front face a three-dimensional look. The PHEV also uses the same color of the body grille design, making the whole car look relatively simple. The tail embraces a more simple and conventional penetrating tail light design. At the same time, the logo on the tail is connected to the lights and can also be illuminated.
