Retro is the trend that never fades

When all the main engine manufacturers are targeting new cars at young and trendy consumers, Great Wall Motors is targeting another field “classic cars”. At this Beijing auto show, Great Wall Motor officially appeared in the “chaopai” model. As the car field that great wall is not good at, new cars are highly concerned after their appearance. < / P > < p > this concept car is built by Simmons, global design director and vice president of Great Wall Motors. The whole car adopts the design concept of retro + technology + crossing, which is intended to interpret the unique design aesthetics through the unique shape design with feelings and future. < / P > < p > the overall design style of the new car is more retro. The large front grille and the raised lines of the engine compartment cover bring a strong sense of muscle. The external round light groups on both sides of the grille are also retro, but I believe the real car will adopt a more complex internal structure of the light group to meet the theme of “technology”. < / P > < p > the interior of the headlamp is arranged in a dot matrix, which has a strong sense of science and technology after lighting, and it is matched with the LED light band below, which not only looks bright, but also improves the visual impact of the whole vehicle. < / P > < p > on the side of the car body, there is not too much sharp line design of the whole car. There is only one waist line running through the whole side. The smooth side has a strong retro flavor and looks very full. < / P > < p > the car body of chaopai has green, blue, brown and white, and it also has color scheme. Inspired by the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, from the official script of great wall, it may provide more colors for consumers to choose. At the same time, it is noted that the chaopai concept car also adopts the opposite door design. < / P > < p > the shape of the rear of the car is very retro. The through type tail lamp echoes with the front light band. The tail lamp adopts the all red design, which is very similar to the classic car in the 1970s and 1980s, and the whole tail does not have too many water chestnut lines, so it looks very round and full. < / P > < p > in terms of interior decoration, the designer has made great efforts to the car, combining retro and modern technology, using log, ice, crystal and other elements, combining environmental protection and texture through future material and ecological elements, to create a new post-modern style. < / P > < p > the shape of the steering wheel is quite retro, but it is still made of two-color stitched leather. The multi-function buttons on the steering wheel are full touch, used to control media and volume. < / P > < p > the instrument panel also adopts a round shape, with less internal information, only speed and gear. I believe the mass production version will greatly adjust the instrument panel, otherwise such an instrument panel can not meet the information in driving. < / P > < p > the air outlet also adopts a round design, the middle part has a LCD screen to display the air conditioning temperature, and the silver decoration highlights the return to work fashion style. < / P > < p > the suspended instrument is the standard configuration of Great Wall Motor, but it is integrated with the modern trend in the resumption of work. It looks very refreshing, creating a sense of science fiction intelligent cockpit. < / P > < p > in terms of technology configuration, the new car also uses head up display, automatic parking, 360 ° panoramic image and a variety of driving modes. At the same time, the new car will be equipped with coffee intelligent platform, which can realize L3 level auxiliary driving, voice remote control, intelligent cockpit, 5g car machine, etc. < / P > < p > in terms of seats, 2 + 2 seat layout is adopted, and integrated seat design is used. Moreover, this is not a leather seat, and the fabric seat is more likely to return to work, catering to the design concept of the whole vehicle. < / P > < p > to sum up, it can be said that chaopai concept car has once again overturned the design concept of solidifying its own brand in this auto show. It is hard to imagine that it will come from great wall manufacturing, which is the worst at car making. In addition, chaopai comes from the lemon platform of Great Wall Motor, which can realize a variety of power configurations, including conventional power, hybrid power and pure electric power. It can carry cobalt free batteries and has a range of 700km. Finally, I would like to say that according to the Great Wall’s unusual thinking at present, chaopai may be its forerunner in returning to the car market.
