The Auto show in Shanghai is already operating and besides bringing news of the brands that more and better we know it, it also brings other less well-known in these parts. It could be entitled “From China with Love” as the local firms do not waiver in their efforts to assault the markets european and american. Their concepts and prototypes are evolving by leaps and bounds, as it no longer copied shamelessly the design of the brands men and women and their interiors win on quality and technology.
One of the firms that improved performance is showing is Haval. The firm’s quasi-premium Chery is showing that he can be something more than a brand with source and capital chinese in the automotive sector. Proof of this is the Haval HB-03 or what is the same, an SUV with the shape of a coupe, that reminds vaguely of the BMW X6. Their external measures do not know it, but by the images we could talk about a SUV of about 4.5 or 4.6 metres in length and a width of almost 2 meters.
the exterior design of The Haval HB-03 is very original, but it mixes elements of several models. The first are the headlights main because they remind that mounts the Hyundai Tucson. Your grill reminds that mounted Ford in its new range of models. If you talk about the profile we need to return to the similarity with the BMW X6, although watching the fall of the C-pillar I would say that also have been inspired by the Maserati Levante. From the back we don’t have snapshots, but is sure to also remind any well known model.
At the technical level the Haval HB-03 will be powered by a hybrid drive system plug-in. Account with a thermal engine of 1.5 liter displacement attached to one electric-type. The power of the model is in the 268 hp and 450 Nm of torque. With these figures, HB-03 is able to achieve the 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 9 seconds. In addition, with the loading of their batteries, it is able to travel up to 65 kilometres without emitting emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere.
In its interior, the design is more futuristic because it has elements that are difficult to bring to production. The Haval HB-03 is presented with several touch screens and lots of carbon fibre scattered around the interior. The interior is lined with a orange leather that gives a colorful, but that seems to be of average quality. Moreover, the console is well oriented to the driver and the number of buttons is just right to not overwhelm the driver.
The Haval HB-03 is only a concept, but good insurance do not take long to reach the market. The evolution of chinese cars is a reality and it is a matter of short time that they would come to eat up the ground.
