changan-cs95-concept2

Nothing like lots of lines and angles to catch the eye, and that’s precisely the approach used for the Changan CS95 concept, which jumped out in Shanghai. The show study supposedly paves the way for a large range-topping SUV from the automaker.

The five-seater measures in at 5,380 mm-long, and sits on a newly-developed platform with a 3,330 mm-long wheelbase. It’s powered by a hybrid drive system comprised of a 3.5 litre V6 petrol mill with 245 hp and 317 Nm and an electric motor developing 167 hp and 335 Nm, driven through an eight-speed auto tranny.

The vehicle is expected to be conventionally petrol powered when it does arrive in its production form though, and the final design should also be more sedate, but you never know with them folks.
