Jeep Designers Detail the Beijing Concept Cars

At this month’s Beijing Auto Show, Jeep unveiled four concept cars based on the all-new Renegade, the Cherokee and the Wrangler. All four design studies are inspired from Chinese landmarks and natural sceneries. The Renegade Zi You Xia, for instance, is inspired by Beijing’s National Center for the Performing Arts, while the Cherokee Sageland draws inspiration from historical landmarks from the Shangri-La region.

Jeep released three videos in which the brand’s designers explain the themes behind each vehicle.

Jeremy Glover, exterior designer for the Jeep Brand Design Studio, talks about the Renegade Zi You Xia, La Shirl Turner, design chief Chrysler Interior Design Studio, details the Cherokee Sageland and Urbane, and Aaron Schnepp, senior designer Jeep Brand Design Studio, tells us what makes the Wrangler Sundancer special.

Nothing is said about any of these concepts evolving into special edition models, but that is not impossible: the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Dragon concept is currently sold in China, the U.S., Australia and Puerto Rico.
