The Jing SUV from SAIC Roewe premiers at Auto Shanghai 2021.
SAIC Roewe new SUV named Jing, made its debut at Auto Shanghai 2021.
The “Jing” stands for whale, the font grille vaguely resembling a whale mouth. The car follows the design philosophy known as emotional rhythm. As the first product of the new series of Roewe, the Jing will assume the responsibility of accelerating the process of brand rejuvenation, personalization and promoting brand upgrading. It boasts narrow LED lights with chunky corner lenses upfront. And its swoopy overall design matches up with common crossover trends.
This is actually a near production concept, showcasing what is to come but the whale connection is certainly no accident. The vertical bars of the grille most decidedly resemble a whales underside and in case you are wondering about the traditional Chinese characters on the license plate, it is a stylized version of Jing. At least the automaker totally owns the whale connection.
The production versions looking very similar to this concept will hit the market later this year. Specifics on powertrain are not known, though reports say it will not be a purely electric offering. Plug-in hybrid and standard internal combustion versions will be available, though information on output is not announced just yet. A related model with a fully electric powertrain will enter the market as well, though it likely will not share the same striking face.
The Jing should hold the position of flagship in Roewe lineup. No information on possible pricing or features and being a product of SAIC, it will almost certainly remain a product for the Chinese market.
