More and more pictures of Hengchi 7, on the road on public roads, are appearing in China. Are we seeing a successful production or is it just a coincidence? Both would be possible and it is clear that increased public presence will hardly harm the Evergrande Auto project. Certainly not when the Hengchi 7 drives up with such an elegant rear in an attractive design.
Series design by Hengchi 7
The pictures should show Hengchi 7 in the final series design. It could be the high-end version of the electric sedan, because we've already seen one versionthat was not equipped with elaborate full-LED headlights. The conspicuously large rims, which could have a dimension of 20 or 21 ″, also speak for this assumption. They give Hengchi 7 a particularly sporty appearance.
Of course, this size is counterproductive for an electric car, as it increases consumption and reduces the range. But in this respect, car fans seem to be similar in every part of the world. Sporty, black spoilers and aprons complete the dynamic appearance. Everything seems like one piece.
Designed by Maruyama Satomi
The most elegant side of number 7 is without question the rear. So far there have only been a few pictures of this. The sedan designed by the former Isuzu design boss Maruyama Satomi is reminiscent of the appearance of current Porsche models with its LED bar. A hinted hatchback suggests a large tailgate for a moment. In fact, there should only be a conventional trunk lid at this point.
The future is still unclear
Certainly there are purely electric sedans from Chinese manufacturers that are less attractive than Hengchi's contribution. With a range of 710 or 720 kilometers according to the NEDC, there are different statements, the all-electric sedan is interesting. It would be exciting to find out the planned price. Evergrande Auto is still silent about this. Because the future is still unclear. Just like the question of when and whether the number 7 will go into production, must remain unanswered for the time being.
