Hezhong Eureka 02 Is A Design Study With Future Applications

Hezhong Automobile is showcasing its brand new Eureka 02 study at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. It has fresh design language that’s meant to hint at the automaker’s future products.

While there isn’t any information regarding potential powertrain options or any tech for that matter, we can at least do a deep dive into the 02’s styling and try to figure out if we’d like to see this thing on our streets sometime in the future, or rather have it remain in concept form for all time.

Is there such a thing as too curvy?

The overall design of the Eureka 02 is both sharp and curvy, whether you’re looking at its profile, front fascia or rear end. The front has relatively simple styling, albeit with some sharp headlights that follow the contours of the hood, then split apart at the far edges – kind of like a snake tooth. As for the enclosed front grille, it points to battery power only.

Moving on to the profile, we notice a belt line that extends from behind the front wheel all the way to the taillights, while the front fenders boast a hook-like insert that teardrops away from the headlights and splashes down beneath the A-pillar, right underneath the camera mirrors.

The rear end features what most would commonly call an SUV Coupe shape, not unlike that of a BMW X6. Unlike the X6 though, the 02 has full-length taillights and a more pronounced “duck-tail” design. Other visual traits include the silver roof line, massive rear diffuser and large 22-inch five-spoke wheels.

According to Autohome, the Hezhong Eureka 02 will spawn a production-ready vehicle in the not too distant future.
