The HongQi E-HS9 electric car is an analogue of Rolls-Royce.

Chinese automaker FAW has unveiled the new HongQi E-HS9 luxury electric SUV. The company believes that the novelty has every chance to compete with the Aurus Komendant, Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Range Rover models.

The electric car is based on the HongQi E115 concept, presented a year ago. And the exterior was developed by the former chief designer of Rolls-Royce.

In the car interior, natural high-quality finishing materials (leather, polished aluminum, precious wood) and three huge displays (dashboard, multimedia, microclimate) are used.

Under the Chinese brand Hongqi («Red Banner»), only limousines for the Chinese government and expensive cars were previously produced, but a few years ago, the parent concern FAW began to develop the crossover segment.

SUVs E-HS3, HS5 and HS7 of different sizes entered the local market one after another, and now the flagship model E-HS9 is ready. And this is an electric car!

No, this is not a competitor to Rolls-Royce or Bentley, although visually the new Hongqi makes such an impression.

It’s just that former Rolls-Royce designer Giles Taylor had a hand in creating the design: FAW lured him in 2018.

The crossover is made in the same style as the Hongqi H9 sedan: two-story headlights, a vertical cliff of the radiator grille and retractable door handles are common features.

However, the claim to compete with cars such as the BMW X7 or Mercedes GLS has been made.

The size of Hongqi E-HS9 almost coincides with them:
length — 5209 mm,
width — 2010 mm,
height — 1731 mm.

The wheelbase is 3110 mm versus 3105 mm for the BMW X7 and 3075 mm for the Mercedes.

The standard wheels are 22 inches in diameter, and the traditional Hongqi ridge on the hood is stuffed with LEDs.

The front of the cabin has four screens in front of the driver (including a touch-sensitive center console) and multicontour seats.

And the passenger compartment can be in two configurations. Basic — with separate second-row seats (each has an electric drive) and a double third row, and even in this case, nappa leather was used for upholstery.

And for a surcharge, the Hongqi E-HS9 can have a four-seater saloon with luxurious bedding in the second row.

Rear passengers have at their disposal heated and ventilated seats, a central box, three screens (two in the backs of the front seats and one in the center) and retractable footrests.


The SUV is driven by two electric motors — one per axle. Front with a capacity of 218 hp (160 kW) and rear — 333 hp. (245 kW).

The electric motors are powered by a 92.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4 seconds. The cruising range is 500 km.

There are three types of traction battery with a capacity of 85, 99 or 120 kWh to choose from. The declared mileage on a single charge is 460, 510 or 650 km, respectively.

Also in the arsenal of the crossover is an air suspension with adaptive shock absorbers (double wishbone in front and a multi-link in the rear), seven modes of driving electronics and adaptive cruise control with a track autopilot, and a capacitive sensor is built into the steering wheel rim, which monitors the presence of the driver’s hands on the steering wheel.

Price. Release date.

So far, Chinese dealers Hongqi have opened only receiving orders and announced a price range — from 80 to 110 thousand dollars.

Cars should be on sale before the end of the year. And apart from the small-scale Hongqi L5 member, the new E-HS9 crossover will be the most expensive car of the brand.

In China, the HongQi E-HS9 is available in four fixed trim levels, priced from 509,800 to 729,800 yuan (about 5,785,000 — 8,280,000 rubles).
