The Hongqi EH7 convertible retains the overall design of the standard EH7, featuring the signature closed grille design and the distinctive combination of the 7-shaped headlights, which have become the latest family design language for the Hongqi brand.

Inside the vehicle, there is a strong emphasis on noticeable quality ehancements and a matching interior color scheme. The EH7 convertible is equipped with a 6-inch + 15.5-inch curved dual-screen display, along with an AR HUD (Augmented Reality Head-Up Display) system. Powered by the Snapdragon 8155 chipset, an impressive addition to the Hongqi brand. The interior follows a minimalist design approach, with hardly any physical buttons in sight. The steering wheel itself has a distinctive and sporty appearance, resembling a gaming controller. Additionally, the seats feature an integrated design, while the fresh interior color schemes create an overall futuristic and dynamic feel.

The EH7 convertible is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The ternary lithium battery packs, supplied by CATL, power the vehicle. The impressive acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h is as fast as 3.5 seconds. It should be noted that the EH7 convertible is an upgrade to the existing EH7 lineup, which currently offers five models priced between 229,800 and 309,800 yuan (approximately 31,900 to 43,000 USD). With the introduction of the convertible variant, the prices are expected to increase accordingly.

Looking ahead, Hongqi plans to expand its new energy sub-brand further, with future offerings including battery-swap and long-range fast-charge variants, capable of achieving up to an 800 km range. With the EH7 convertible, Hongqi continues to showcase its attempts to make a name for itself in the luxury car market
