Launched last month at the MIAS, the EMKOO is an ultra-modern five-seater compact SUV that impresses with its future-forward design and cutting-edge technologies, making it the most ideal vehicle for today’s generation.  

The overall design of the EMKOO is bold, captivating, and futuristic.  Inspired by Sci-Fi elements, the industrial aesthetic design is defined by sharp feature lines, angular edges, and a dynamic stance that add appeal to the distinct look and head-turning presence of the EMKOO.
