Both China and Germany are major automotive nations with a long history of mutually beneficial cooperation". The recent entry of HONGQI's new energy vehicles into the German market marks a significant step in Sino-German efforts towards green transformation and joint action on climate change.

As a Chinese automotive brand, HONGQI showcased its exceptional elegance as the main sponsor of this event. At the race, the HONGQI E-HS9 attracted significant interest from German citizens. Its uniquely Chinese design and exquisite exterior and interior craftsmanship garnered widespread admiration, with many spectators praising both HONGQI and Chinese manufacturing.

In 2024, HONGQI will continue to expand its presence in the European market, introducing new models including the HONGQI EH7 and EHS7. These additions aim to provide users across Europe, including Germany, with the exclusive luxury experience of HONGQI and the promise of "better ride, better life".
