Qoros 9 Sedan Concept
After an internship during which he worked amongst some of the most talented automobile designers in the industry, a design student's vision of a Qoros for the year 2020 was showcased at the Coventry University Degree Show in the UK.
Jihoon Seo - a 29-year-old Korean - undertook a five-month spell with the brand's designers in Shanghai as part of the Qoros Design Team's internship programme, which offers budding designers the opportunity to develop and refine the skills required to pursue a career in the automotive industry. Qoros then sponsored Seo through his final-year project that represented the culmination of his studies at Coventry University's School of Art and Design.
Qoros' Executive Director of Design, Gert Volker Hildebrand, said: "Qoros is a rapidly growing brand and we are dedicated to helping and educating young, up-and-coming talent. Finding the very best talent will be a crucial success factor for our company in the future. Jihoon is the eighth design intern we have welcomed at Qoros in just the past few years and we will continue to offer internships to the brightest students.
"Our internship programme also allows us to give something back, offering the same opportunity today that many of us in the Qoros design team benefited from when we were students or working in our earliest days in automotive design. Jihoon is a very talented young designer and it's been our pleasure to be involved in helping him on the first steps of his career," concluded Hildebrand.
