The fruit of the thought of Hongqi specialists was the concept car, photos of which appeared on the Chinese resource Autohome.
The electric concept car E-Jing GT Concept, which in front looks a bit like the German show car Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, got narrowed headlights, connected together by LED elements of navigation lights, a bonnet combined with a radiator grille, and a front bumper with deflectors.
