Overall, the SUV is boxy paired with round headlights, roof racks, black wheel arches, multi-spoke rims, hidden exhaust outlets, and an external spare tire.

The standard version outputs 278 kW and 750 Nm, and is powered by a 19.09 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery pack, giving it a NEDC pure electric cruising range of 102 km.

In addition, the vehicle operating system comes from Great Wall Motor’s Coffee Intelligence system while the advanced driving assistance system called Coffee Pilot is integrated with an onboard navigation system and high-precision map. Features of the Coffee Pilot include intelligent entrance and exit of ramps, intelligent avoidance of merging lanes, intelligent lane change protection, distracted fatigue monitoring, intelligent avoidance of large vehicles, and intelligent recognition of complex fork intersections, according to Great Wall Motor.
