This is the NextEV NIO ES8, and while it looks rather good it also looks surprisingly ‘normal’ from the young car company that gave us the EP9 supercar and the EVE autonomous concept. The NIO ES8 is a semi-concept which means that the eventual production car will only be different on details.
The brand new Hongqi U-Concept has been launched on the Shanghai Auto Show in China, sporting the red flag ornament on the bonnet, an enormous grille in typical Hongqi style, mean looking headlights, and a heavy front bumper.

This is the new Roewe Vision-E concept car, previewing a new electric SUV that will hit the Chinese car market in 2018. It is a very good looking car with an enormous grille, swooping lines, and a sporty stance. There is however a small problem: the name. The Roewe concept is called the Vision-E, with a – between Vision and E. Yesterday evening Skoda launched the Vision E, without a –, previewing an electric SUV coupe. What a mess.
Chery has unveiled the Tiggo Coupe Concept, one day before the start of the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, previewing an upcoming sporty SUV that will be positioned above the Chery Tiggo 7.

BYD’s are going to look good, and that is great. Until now they were impressive cars from a tech perspective, like the Tang super SUV, but design always disappointed. Last year BYD hired Wolfgang Egger as their new head of design, and the first car he draw is this new BYD Dynasty concept.
