Qoros Automotive will be unveiling its new plug-in hybrid supercar, the Qoros Model K-EV, at the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show, with a view to begin mass production sometime in 2019.

The Qoros Model K-EV will apparently feature the hybrid electric powertrain used in the 1500 horsepower Koenigsegg Regera supercar — so it may be worth keeping an eye out for the information revealed at the auto show … if you have an interest in “supercars,” that is.

Something else notable about the Qoros Model K-EV is the extensive use of carbon fiber — the chassis and much of the cabin are reportedly being made of carbon fiber, allowing for a fairly light vehicle.

Our sister site Gas 2 provides more:

“The Model K-EV was created by an international design and engineering team to offer customers premium driving and riding experiences and a taste of future mobility. It is notable for its unique arrangement of doors creates a unique and distinctive experience for the driver and passengers.

“On the driver’s side, a gullwing door provides easy of access to the interior. A double-hinged passenger side door opens outward like a conventional door or can slide forward as needed. The rear passenger door features a sliding system to ensure maximize convenience and ease of use for passengers entering and exiting the car. Once inside, passengers will notice the car’s interior has been designed to create two distinct cabin spaces, providing rear seat passengers with a more comfortable and enjoyable riding experience.”

We’ll keep you posted as new information is revealed ahead of and at the Shanghai Auto Show, where we’ll have a couple of reporters.
