The sleek profiling continues towards the rear which gets thin taillights, a large tailgate, roof-mounted spoiler and an diffuser-integrated bumper.

Emphasizing, the brand's latest product design idea 'FUN', the FV2030 aims to allow consumers to enjoy their lives with Chery's products.

Moreover. it has ambient LED lighting and a 3D holographic display for the infotainment system.

The concept's exact powertrain was not revealed, though Chery did say it is driven by an electric motor. Beyond that, the FV2030 also has what Chery calls 'smart pilotless technology' which allows the concept crossover to have the ability to drive by itself.

There is no word whether Chery will make a production version of the FV2030.
