Chery Group achieves record September sales

Global monthly sales exceed 190K for the first time as YTD sales increase by 40.2pc

11 Oct 2023

CHINESE manufacturer Chery Group has set something of a trifecta in September with global sales of 190,080 units notching a year-on-year increase of 30.7 per cent for the brand.


It is the first time Chery has exceeded 190,000 monthly sales and takes year-to-date sales (from January to September) for the brand to a new high of 1,253,237 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 40.2 per cent.


Globally, Chery says it has achieved a “triple jump” in sales for the third quarter of 2023 with monthly sales having “continuously set new records of over 150,000, 170,000 and 190,000 vehicles”. The cumulative sales for the first three quarters of the year have already exceeded the manufacturer’s 2022 sales total, creating a sales record for the group.


The news comes just weeks after Chery Australia announced the launch of its Tiggo 7 Pro; the model expected in local showrooms from November priced from $39,990 drive-away.


The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro will compete against the likes of the GWM Haval H6 (from $33,900 +ORC) and MG HS (from $32,990 d/a) in the bustling SUV Medium under $60K category and become the second Chery model to be sold Down Under alongside the small-segment Omoda 5 SUV (from $29,900 +ORC).


Offered in three trim grades – Urban, Elite and Ultimate – the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is one of the brand’s most popular global models with over three million examples produced to date.


It will be offered in Australia exclusively with turbocharged petrol power and with the availability of front- and all-wheel drive, and with equipment levels Chery says will “surprise and delight at every level”.


Beginning with the entry-grade Urban, we find all-LED lighting, 18-inch alloy wheels (with full-size spare wheel), artificial leather seats with front-seat heating, dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, multicolour LED ambient cabin lighting, native satellite navigation, dual 12.3-inch infotainment and instrumentation screens, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless device charging, an eight-speaker Sony-sourced audio system, and ‘Hello Chery’ voice control.


Chery says the variant is equipped with eight airbags, 18 advanced driver aid systems and a driver monitoring system.


The mid-tier Elite ($41,990 d/a) adds or replaces the aforementioned kit list with a 360-degree camera system, auto folding wing mirrors, powered tailgate, illuminated sill covers, optional black-painted roof, cabin air quality management system, and a cargo blind.


Finally, the top-spec Ultimate AWD ($45,990 d/a) adds or replaces as above with all-wheel drive, 19-inch alloys, six drive modes (Eco, Sport, Normal, Snow, Mud, Off-road), red-painted brake callipers, memory mirrors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, ventilated front seats, and driver’s seat memory.


All Tiggo 7 Pro variants are powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine delivering 137kW at 5500rpm and 275Nm at 2000rpm. The engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as standard and in front-wheel drive format is said to consume 7.0 litres per 100km with CO2 emissions of 163 grams per kilometre (ADR Combined cycle).


The five-seat Chery Tiggo 7 Pro measures 4513mm in length, 1862mm in width and 1696mm in height, and rides on a 2670mm wheelbase. Cargo space is listed at 626 litres in five-seat mode or 1672 litres in two-seat mode.


Chery’s Tiggo 7 Pro is characterised by the brand’s Diamond and Crystal design language that will inspire all future Tiggo models, including a diamond-style front grille and blue laser front bumper treatment.


The manufacturer says the “premium design flourishes” of the model, including slender LED headlights, integrated taillights, bilateral exhaust tips and monogrammed rear badge “further add to its premium appeal”.


The Chery range is backed by a seven-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty with includes capped-price servicing plan and roadside assistance program.
