Soueast X1 Hybrid GT Looks Sharp, But Where Do You Plug It In?

Illustration for article titled Soueast X1 Hybrid GT Looks Sharp, But Where Do You Plug It In?

As with many western auto shows, the Beijing Motor Show has become obsessed with hybrid concept cars. Though most of these hybrids are sedans or MPV's, automaker Soueast decided to go with a squashed GT sports car. The result is the X1 Plug-in HEV, which looks rather sharp and manages to be almost a modern interpretation of a Jensen from certain angles. Does the powertrain exist? Maybe, maybe not. Does Jackie Chan endorse this car? Probably not. But Soueast makes cars in a deal with Mitsubishi Motors so they probably had a bunch of posters lying around and everyone loves Jackie Chan.

DISCUSSION

Loads of derivative design cues (particularly from the Jag XF,) but a little more tastefully brought together than usual.

Perhaps if the CEO of Soueast (STRAIGHT OUTTA SOUEASTSIDE) invited you to join him on a drive around show floor, your dubiousness would be allayed.
