Chery has launched the eQ1 electric car on the Chinese market, just days after the company filed a trademark complaint against Mercedes-Benz. The Germans want to use the EQ name for an EV-sub brand, but Chery has been using the eQ EV brand since 2014. Their first car was the eQ and now we have the new eQ1. The eQ1, formerly known as the S51, is a somewhat trendy mini hatchback aimed at young car buyers living in the big cities. Price is surely very attractive, the range starts at just 49.800 yuan and ends at 99.800 yuan ($7240-14.516), and that includes all green car subsidies. Power comes from an electric motor mated to a lithium ion battery with 41 horses and 120 Nm, good for a 100 km/h top speed and a range of 180 kilometers. Charging takes six hours on 220V and 1.5 hours for 80% on a fast-charger. Size: 3200/1670/1550, and wheelbase is 2150. The interior is funky to the max with orange seats, and orange dash, a digital instrument panel and a large 10 inch touch screen.
Today in One Minute Walk-around the Zotye E200, a small two-seat electric car for the Chinese auto market with a striking and original design. The E200 costs 59,800 yuan ($8,950) after green-car subsidies. Power comes from an electric motor with 82hp and 165nm. Top speed is 120 kilometers per hour and range is 155 kilometers. Charging takes just half an hour for 80% battery on a fast charger or 8 hours for a full load on 220V. It is a tiny little thing: 2735/1600/1630, and wheelbase is 1810. They are very popular at the moment, I seem them all over the place in Beijing and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the E200 eventually becomes Zotye;s best-selling car.

China’s Chery Auto has launched the brand new Tiggo 7 SUV on the Chinese car market; it is the new flagship of the lineup and the most expensive Chery SUV so far. Design is a clear departure from the rather dull and conservative lines of previous Chery SUVs. The Tiggo 7 is also the first Chery to have the new family face with a typical inverted grille and boomerang headlights. Not too pretty, but certainly daring. The Tiggo 7 is aimed at young car buyers living in big cities, the hottest market segment in China at the moment. These car buyers are just married, fashionable, between 25 and 35 years old, with one or two children, and probably like to go mountain biking at the weekend. The Tiggo 7 slots just above the Tiggo 5 in Chery’s lineup. The 5 is a bit smaller and less expensive but it is living in a completely different world: aimed at a more conservative and older segment of the market with a more subdued design and image. Interestingly, both cars share the same engines: a 1.5 turbo with 152 hp and 205 Nm and a 2.0 with 122 hp and 180 Nm. The former is mated to a 6-speed DCT or a 6-speed manual, the latter to a CVT. The addition of the 2.0 to the Tigo 7 is a bit of a surprise. It is an old engine without much power that sits in a high tax bracket. The engine makes sense for the Tiggo 5 because conservative, and especially elderly conservative, car buyers are known to prefer larger engines over smaller ones, even if the smaller engine is cheaper and more powerful. The Tiggo 7 however is specifically aimed at the young, and they are into turbo only. Price for the 1.5 turbo starts at 97,900 yuan and ends at 153,900 yuan ($14,600 - $23,070) and price for the 2.0 ranges from 115,900 yuan to 123,900 yuan ($17,370 - $18,570). The Tiggo 7 competes with cars like the Geely Boyue, the Roewe RX5, and the Trumpchi GS4. The Tiggo 7 is the first Chery that is based on the new T1X modular platform, which was developed with some assistance from Jaguar Land Rover, Chery’s partner in the Chery-JLR joint venture that makes various Land Rovers for the Chinese market. The T1X platform can support different body styles. The platform will also underpin the successor of the Tiggo 5, a seven seat variant of the Tiggo 7, and a seven-seat MPV. All these cars will be launched before 2020.

Chery Automobile Co. will launch production at its second electric vehicle assembly plant in May to significantly expand its EV output, according to a Chinese media report.
The 1 billion yuan ($145 million) plant is in Dezhou of east China's Shandong province. It will build as many as 100,000 EVs annually after reaching full capacity, reported ChinaNEV, a Shanghai website.
Its first two models will be Chery's eQ and eQ1 battery-electric minicars.
Chery's initial EV assembly plant is in Wuhu, in east China’s Anhui province. It can produce up to 60,000 EVs annually.
In 2016, Chery delivered 20,963 EVs in China, up 48 percent from a year earlier.
Chery, a state-owned automaker headquartered in Wuhu, sold 363,300 gasoline-powered vehicles last year, up 17 percent.
