The Red Flag plans to conquer Europe

Heading to Norway: The bombastic electric luxury SUV Hongqi E-HS9

Luxury carmaker FAW wants to turn the patriotic luxury brand Hongqi into China's first global EV export hit. The selling point of models like the S9 and L5 is primarily their rarity. However, it is still a ways off from the Chinese S-Class.

The "Hongqi" – which translates to "Red Flag" – is the most symbolic car brand in the People's Republic. Even Mao Zedong had himself driven around in a black state car from Hongqi. And even today, the Hongqi is the vehicle of choice for the party elite. The cars are regularly seen near Beijing's government district, as well as at military parades. The open car in which State and Party leader Xi Jinping takes his military parades is a Hongqi. US presidents and German chancellors have also been picked up from the airport in cars of this make.
