The company is not so active on the European market, but this September it presented its newest concept. There are many unique things when it comes to this concept, but it is inevitable to see that it took a lot from Zagato in terms of design.
Thunder Power EV Concept Exterior
LED headlights have become standard in the car industry, thus they are used in this concept. Headlights have quite unique design as well as the front grille with an oval shape. When you take a look at the Thunder Power EV concept you will realize that future is already here. Some retro lines can be spotted thus we see this concept as an ideal combination of old and new. Taillights are curved and don’t resemble any other taillights you got a chance to see. Whole rear end is one of a kind and it might become a role model for some future cars manufactured by Thunder Energy, or even by some other automakers.
