These two very European-looking concepts - neither of which have been shown before - will be the stars of the Chery stand at the upcoming Auto China 2012 show in Beijing.

The Tx is a design study for a smoothly-styled, distinctive compact crossover, with several unusual features, and could presage a new look for future models from China's fourth-largest automaker.

The Ant, however, is a whole lot further out there, both in terms of concept and styling - although it is actually a very Chinese idea - with a number of identical vehicles linking up as a collective (hence the name) for commuting, to share power and navigation.
