Jeep has released two teasers for a new concept car that will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in China. Jeep says it is a “new energy vehicle” (NEV), a Chinese classification that includes EVs and PHEVs. The concept seems about the size of the Grand Cherokee with a steeply angled windscreen, ultra wide wheel arches, and an all-new D-pillar design.

This little white wonder is the new Shaolin LeTu K2, a low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) that I met on the 2017 Jinan EV Show. It is a two-door four-seat hatchback with a Jeep-like nose. It also has big black bumpers, black rails to the roof, super sized windows, and wheels all the way on the corners.

Four long years ago I posted a post about an interesting project where a small Chinese car shop was turning a Jeep Patriot SUV into a parade car. There wasn’t much progress for a while and eventually I forgot about the whole thing. Until today. Coincidentally I found a flock of new pics of the project, showing that they did indeed finish the car.

This is the crazy G. Patton Tomahawk, a badass 6×6 based on the Jeep Wrangler. The Tomahawk, not to be confused with the Dodge Tomahawk (which is real), launched earlier this week on the Chengdu Auto Show in China, looking dangerous in a shade called ‘Black Armour’.
