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.
