Xi Jinping brings his 18-foot armoured Hongqi N701 limo to the United States, Details of the Vehicle

When Chinese President Xi Jinping showed President Joe Biden his Hongqi N701 car during high-level talks in the US, the US president praised it as a "beautiful vehicle."

Xi Jinping: Arriving in a bulletproof Chinese-made Hongqi limousine, Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting in San Francisco, California, on November 14. In this article, we will tell you all we know about this 18-foot bulletproof beast.

Xi Jinping’s Hongqi N701

Design details

The N701 distinguishes itself visually from other Hongqi models of the present day. A pair of darkened headlights is supplemented by a grille with vertical uprights and chrome surrounds that dominate the front fascia. The hood features a sizable red flag insignia, as is typical with Hongqi vehicles. The chrome window surrounds and strong B-pillars, the straightforward LED taillights, and the red flag insignia on the front fenders are additional eye-catching details.

Safety and performance

Despite having some similarities to the Chinese company’s huge H9 sedan, President Xi Jinping’s Hongqi is not a series production model. The N701 is said to be centred around the L5 and measures roughly 5.5 metres, or 18 feet, in length. Not surprisingly, not many specifics about it are kept under wraps, but it is believed to be equipped with a significant armour plate on the outside, bulletproof glass throughout, and 21-inch wheels and tyres.

Xi’s vehicle includes an air compression system that shields him from chemical attacks and can sustain blows from tiny explosives. Although Hongqi also produces a V8 that might be used, power is assumed to come from a 6.0-litre V12 that produces about 408 horsepower.
