Old German brand Borgward lived to see its rebirth at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, after over 50 years of absence.

The new company unveiled Borgward BX7, a petrol car with 224hp 2.0-liter turbo engine (probably from BAIC). BAIC? Well, that is because this is now more a Chinese car than German, and is also scheduled for launch in China next year.

The European launch will follow after China, and there’s a plug-in hybrid version in the works.

Some sources are reporting 295 kW of system power with 55 km (34 miles) of all-electric range.

We will keep an eye on the Borgward BX7, as the New Energy version in China could be quite successful there considering how well BYD Qin/Tang are selling right now.

OK, take A VW Tuareg, put the Backend from the Porsche Cayenne at the end, use the front end from Audi Q5/Q7, do some Style-Changes with the large Chrome grill and tada, the shiny new Borgward whatever is ready to hit the Road… Guess it’s also using the typical VW-Engines???

Double the plug-in range, meet USA safety regulations, sell it at a $35K price tag … bring it on!
Maybe automotive competition from China is what we need to force US manufacturers to build cars that we want.

Picard and Janeway could have used some of these vehicles in a number of episodes and in one of the movies… Of course I’m not sure what effect they might have on 7 of 9.

With that wild looking grill, the new Borgward looks like an electric shaver on wheels.

I like the 1950s model coupe much better, with all that chrome bling. Yummy.
