Borgward is expanding its lineup with two new models that will be receiving a global premiere during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
The revived brand made its big return during the 2015 IAA in September with the BX7 SUV and now the company is proudly introducing the BX5 and Projekt BX6 TS. Both are positioned below BX7 and will be displayed in Geneva as pre-production prototypes.
The BX5 is 176.4 inches long (4.48 meters) and is targeted at the booming segment for mid-size SUVs. Borgward says the concept is “approaching the series-production stage” and “features equipment based largely on mass-production technology.” Speaking of technologies, the BX5 comes with a plug-in hybrid system, combining an internal combustion engine and an electric motor for a total output of 258 horsepower (190 kilowatts).
As for the Projekt BX6 TS, it takes the shape of a coupe-SUV with sloping roofline and muscular side profile. What’s hiding under the skin is a hybrid system with impressive peak power of 422 hp (311 kW). The concept also uses the same electronic AWD system as fitted in the BX5, which delivers “a highly impressive driving performance” coupled with “remarkably good fuel economy.”
Borgward also mentions it gives the Projekt name to all its future show cars.
