The Qoros 2 PHEV Concept features contemporary and rugged SUV design features combined with dynamic coupe upper body lines to showcase the vehicle’s muscular stance. A long wheel base, short overhangs and a wide track offer a reassuringly planted and rugged road presence, reinforcing the feeling of safety and security. Styling of the lower body is strong and wide, accentuating the masculine robustness of the car through details such as vertically-orientated front and rear lamp clusters, an open V-shaped front bumper and extended wheel arches. A floating roofline and high waistline then add a touch of elegance and class to this rugged vehicle.
The Qoros 2 PHEV Concept boasts exceptional, class-leading interior space with a seating position, which provides greater visibility of the vehicle’s surroundings. The vehicle’s simple, minimalist interior design is based on bold graphics and incorporates signature Qoros cues such as elegant horizontal lines and a “floating” upper instrument panel. An innovative digital instrument cluster displays all the information the driver needs in a full colour display and is linked to the pop-up drive mode controller in the floor console.
The interior is highly versatile – a cutaway floor console incorporates a large storage space while the trunk has many individual storage compartments to provide flexibility and secure storage to keep valuable equipment out of sight. The multi-zone temperature control system allows each occupant to personalise his or her own temperature settings at each air vent. As with all Qoros vehicles, this vehicle is equipped with Qoros Multi Media Hub (MMH) that provides access to Qoros’ cloud-enhanced connected services platform.
