Qoros Previews New 3 GT Crossover And Electric Concept Before Guangzhou Auto Show

Chinese automaker Qoros is ready to launch its first sports crossover sedan for the Chinese market, dubbed the 3 GT, and has released a preview ahead of its official launch at the Guangzhou Auto Show.

Qoros says that the 3 GT creates an entirely new segment in the market catering towards customers “who prefer both the driving comfort of a sedan and the traffic ability of an SUV”.

The 3 GT powered by the brand’s standard 1.6-liter turbocharged engine producing 156 hp and is differentiated from other Qoros models through its black body cladding and design inspired by the 3 Q-Lectric concept unveiled earlier in the year.

Speaking of the 3 Q-Lectric concept, this will also be on display in Guangzhou as a proposal for the ever-increasing domestic EV market, with Qoros hoping that a production version would rival the Chevrolet Bolt but be even cheaper. Qoros says that the concept has a range of 217 miles (350 km) and that it can accelerate from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 7 seconds and continue to a 101 mph (162 km/h) top speed.

    I like the idea , maybe if it takes off, we will see something like that from a car company here in the united states. It looks pretty cool . MAYBE FCA should get in bed with Qoros and bring this here to the states as a Dodge Neon SR4X4 :)-
