Hongqi could almost be seen on home turf at the Beijing Auto Show despite actually hailing from Changchun. Such is the traditional government association with the brand Beijing is like a second home to FAW owned Hongqi. So it’s probably little surprise that three concepts appeared on the stand.

Hongqi announced that cars will divide into three categories golden sunflower, energy saving and Hongqi New Energy. The company announced pretty much the same thing at last year’s Shanghai Show as well! Golden sunflower is the name given to the most expensive range often exclusive to the government or well connected people.

The largest of the three concepts is the E702. It is expected to preview the latest design style of the Hongqi energy-saving car series despite the green number plate. At the front is a large fan grille and the distinctive Hongqi red light bar on the hood. With all that, such slender lights look completely lost. The side profile is fairly similar to the H9 and also the new L1. From what can be seen of the inside it looks luxurious and decked out in white. The E702 may well end up being the second generation H9.

Staying with sedans the E009 caries the badge of Hongqi New Energy and so likely previews a new sedan for this brand. The badge itself is a bit different to the one currently used and is now split. Size wise it looks as if it might be a smaller sedan than the EH7 and looks like it is very close to being ready for production. The front has a sculpted hood and boomerang like light clusters. At the rear the lights are like a Y on its side and the lower bumper has a diffuser.

The final concept shows another new car for Hongqi New Energy, this time an SUV. Styling wise the E007 caries on many of the ideas of the E009 although at the front is has a much deeper grille area due to it being an SUV. Both the E007 and its sedan sibling have distinctive triangular shapes on the wheels and currently it’s believed these will make it to production. Like with the 009 the 007 seems quite close to production and far closer than the E001 and E202 concepts appeared at last year’s Shanghai Show. This means that both might go on sale before the end of the year.
