Qoros Unveils Its 2 SUV PHEV Concept In Shanghai

This week at the Shanghai Motor Show, the Chinese-Israeli automotive manufacturer Qoros revealed its adventurous new 2 PHEV concept.

Drawing on a mix of Chinese and German design features, the 2 PHEV is looking to appeal to “young, open-minded and efficiency-conscious consumers” according to Carscoops.

The 2 PHEV’s design includes pushing its wheels out to each corner, giving it a meaner, more stout look. As well, the vehicle incorporates bamboo into its interior, a spoke inlay that pays tribute to the Year of the Goat, and continues with the Chinese based motif in its color scheme.

As far as what’s under the hood, Qoros decided that it wants the 2 PHEV to include a plug-in hybrid powertrain coupled with a turbo engine of unknown displacement proportions. The petrol engine will power the front wheels, while a pair on electric motors stationed in the rear wheels create an all-wheel-drive scenario.

An interesting addition to the 2 PHEV is how the vehicle is charged, there are two jet-fighter like refueling panels stationed at the base of the windscreen that flip up while charging.

“This concept car is a strong indicator of our long-term plans – combining our commitment to expanding our prodcut range with our desire to innovate and be different,” stated Phil Murtaugh, CEO of Qoros.
