In addition to the extremely luxurious and almost majestically designed 800, has the new brand Tank, which has just been split off from Wey, has yet another powerful off-roader in the bag, which will be presented at Auto Shanghai 2021. The 700 called nature boy, which looks as if it was designed for the rough, but offers all the luxury features in the interior that one expects in an SUV these days. After all, you don't want to miss out on the comfort you are used to, which you already know and appreciate, even off-road or in the desert. We think, however, that most of the tank models never get stick and stone under the four driven wheels, as they are probably mainly bought by wealthy city dwellers who present themselves with them on the boulevards of this world.
Design à la G-Class and FJ Cruiser
The first thing you notice when looking at the side is the extremely angular design of the wheel arches, which extends right into the flank. This creates the impression that the doors are surrounded by mighty sills. The design of the side section is not dissimilar to that of a military vehicle, which is why it creates a rather martial impression. The front section with the round headlights and the small, horizontally accentuated grill, on the other hand, appears almost lovely and elegantly reserved. But restraint is not one of the virtues of a tank model, because the brand name, which translates from English for "tank", illustrates the positioning and intent of the models. The stern then clearly shows where the journey is going.
With the mighty Tailgate, which also has an external spare tire features, as well as the four tailpipes, the noble reluctance is definitely over. The design of the rear part is somewhat reminiscent of the Mercedes G-Class, but looks even more martial due to more beads and light edges. The horizontal LED taillightswhich were placed on the very outside and stretch far into the side of the vehicle, are very modern, although they too have a certain rustic charm. As befits its standing, the exhibition vehicle rolls on rough treads off-road tires of the Bridgestone brand, which on 22-inch Alus were raised, which caused a stir with their spider web optics. In addition, the “TANK” lettering on the spare wheel cover cannot be overlooked.
The interior is luxuriously designed.
Saddle brown leather is used in abundance in the interior, and the fact that you can get up from the driver's seat is very surprising three digital round instruments looks, which exude a certain retro charm. The large display for the navigation and infotainment system sits in the usual place, and does not look attached, but nicely integrated into the cockpit, and the automatic selector lever is very reminiscent of a gaming joystick.
A 2-liter turbo gasoline engine probably works under the hood.
One probably serves as the drive source 2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with four cylinders, the 227 PS and 387 Newtonmeter maximum torque. This would mean that the martial off-roader would not be a product of liveliness, but the driving dynamics qualities are likely to be of secondary importance with this model, because the potential customers would rather want high off-road mobility than sporty handling and high longitudinal dynamics.
Our conclusion on the Tank 700.
If that Semi-concept car, which was presented at the Auto Shanghai, is actually going into series production, then all fans of real off-road vehicles can be happy. With such an off-road concept, in our opinion, you could be the new internationally Ford Bronco or the Land Rover Defender heat up properly. We are excited to see when the Tank 700 will go into series production and how much it will cost. If you can warm up to the martial SUV, we have added a picture gallery to the article for you.
