China's Carmakers Make the Most of Home Show
By Greg Migliore
The Beijing motor show has become a magnet for overseas companies looking to gain a foothold in the world's largest car market. But the Chinese automakers were not ceding the spotlight on their home turf, and several displayed some of the most handsome and intriguing vehicles at the show.
The Chery TX crossover was arguably one of the better-looking SUVs on the floor. It had a sleek yet curvy body, angled headlights and looked like a premium, modern crossover. The concept would run a 2.0-liter gasoline engine and a CVT in road-going guise. Chery celebrated its 10th anniversary with a strong design.
The Great Wall Haval E was another impressive execution, packing scissor doors and EV ability. The attention to detail stood out too--the grille was almost clear--which made for a head-turning experience.
The BAIC flagship concept was simply massive. It looked like the Batmobile for China and had humungous leaf-shaped headlamps, a long hood and spoked wheels.
