Great Wall Motors Unveils Sports Sedan Concept & Hover H7 Concept Car in Shanghai

Great Wall Motor Company of China unveiled the new Hover H7 concept at Auto Shanghai. The study gives an idea of what the next-generation Hover might look like. Great Wall currently sells the low-priced Hover, a crossover utility vehicle based on several other vehicles, in several countries in Europe and Africa in addition to China.

The H7 features a large deep chrome grille and a headlights cluster that stretches from halfway down the front grille almost to the A-pillar. The side mirrors are peculiarly hollow for the most part. The doors feature see-through glass probably intended to showcase its spaciousness rather than the occupants' legs. This design element will probably not make it into production.

Powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, the 4WD H7 is said to have a top speed of 140mph (225km/h).

Plans are apparently afoot to market and sell the H7 production car within the luxury SUV segment. Later other variants will surface such as a smaller H3 with a smaller, cleaner engine. Nothing has been said about possible production and launch dates for the H7.

Both cars look revolting, what the heck? The cars have been drawn by a 5 year old?

@ Renegade given the fact the Chinese use cheap labour your probably right about a 5 year old designing the thing.

...and I wonder why I'm allergic to anything coming from China... words like durability, originality, quality, safety don't even exist in chinese language...

sorry, but can you read between the lines?... I don't know the chinese language but I know that every chinese product I've ever had my hands on it was rubbish, I've seen the chinese cars, up, close and personal... complete rubbish... crash tests? lets not talk about!... so let me see... do they know what's quality, safety, etc? hmmm, don't think so... maybe in some 70 years from now

Well I am not a fan of these cars either, but generalization like "every chinese product I've ever had my hands on it was rubbish" is just not precise. You know there are China-made components in the highest-quality products you use, from japanese cameras to american computers. Besides, if you really refuse to use anything related to China, can you find the substitutes? Even if you can find, can you afford them?

The H7 is hideous. The sports sedan is almost nice. It reminds me of a mini-Maybach for some reason.
