Pininfarina Previews Another HKG Crossover Concept For Beijing

Pininfarina is preparing two new concepts for the Hybrid Kinetic Group to reveal at the Beijing Auto Show later this month. The first takes the form of a four-door sedan, previewed just days ago. The second announced today will be an SUV. And this is our first glimpse at it.

Called the K350, it takes the form of a four-seat crossover. It will pack a plug-in hybrid powertrain in what the design house terms a “robust and athletic body.” And judging from the renderings and nomenclature, it’ll be rather compact in size.

That means it won’t have an excess of space inside. As sleek as the cabin environment looks from the second teaser rendering below, it appears to be pretty short on rear-seat legroom. But such are the parameters of vehicles this small.

More than that, we couldn’t really tell you at this early stage. But the sedan and crossover concepts won’t be the first that the Italian design house will have done for the Hong Kong-based startup.

Pininfarina and HKG first teamed up for the  H600 sedan concept, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last year. The two followed up with the five-seat K550 and seven-seat K750 crossovers at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show. And they revealed the HK GT concept last month at the Geneva show again.

At this point, we’re wondering if and when any of these concepts will actually reach production.  But for now, we’ll just have to wait and see the K350 and H500 concepts unveiled at the Chinese expo on April 25.
