As part of the Shanghai Motor Show, the Chinese Haval has unveiled a prototype of a large crossover called the X-Dog. The brutal car will join the brand’s lineup, which will include five models with the word dog (“dog”) in the name, and will rise one step above the Big Dog in it.
As you can see in the photos of the prototype from the auto show, Haval has chosen a single design language for the models. Both received an angular body with a long hood, a large front bumper and round headlights, which on the X-Dog acquired an X-shaped diode pattern and “fused” with the radiator grille.
Features of the X-Dog include recessed door handles, A-pillars and roof in white, as well as black and white mirror caps and wheels with striking accents.
In the interior of the prototype, several screens are visible at once, including a digital “tidy”, a huge touchscreen of the multimedia system, as well as displays on the steering wheel, central tunnel and door cards. The interior is finished in gray and white with body-colored inserts.
The new product from Haval is set in motion by an electrified power plant operating according to the rechargeable hybrid scheme. It is based on a 1.5-liter supercharged engine. Alternatively, a 2.0 petrol engine is available, paired with a seven-speed preselective robot. The power of the powertrains has not been disclosed.
So far, the X-Dog is only a prototype, and the Chinese automaker promises to present the serial version as early as next year.
