At the Chery Night held on the evening of April 7 in China, Chery TJ-1 officially made its debut. As a new compact SUV under the Chery brand, it is marketed as a “light off-road” vehicle and will be available in both ICE and PHEV versions, and four-wheel drive. The TJ-1 is expected to be officially launched between July and August this year. Currently, Chery is seeking the public to help give its TJ-1 an official name.
As a whole, the exterior of Chery TJ-1 looks tough with a square shape. Most noticeable is the large Chery logo embedded on the blackened front grille.
The ICE version will be equipped with a 1.6T engine and mated with a 7DCT. The PHEV version will be equipped with a 1.5T hybrid engine + DHT that outputs 115 kW and 220 Nm, has a WLTC comprehensive fuel consumption of only 1L/100km, a pure electric cruising range of more than 100 km, and a comprehensive cruising range of 1400 km under full fuel and full charge. It will also only take 18 minutes to charge from 30% to 80%.
The Chery TJ-1 has a size of 4515/1865/1680mm and a 2675mm wheelbase. From the side, it adopts a suspended roof design, comes with pop-out door handles, and runs on blade-style five-spoke rims. The rear has through-type taillights and one exhaust on each side.
The interior will be available in black and white with minimum physical buttons, a rectangular instrument panel, a 14.8-inch floating central control screen, a head-up display, and a wireless charging pad on the center console. The round and rectangular air outlets on both sides are very eye-catching.
Compute will be supported by a Qualcomm 8155 chip and supports FOTA, facial recognition, and a level 2+ driving assistance system. Other configurations include suede seats, seat heating/ventilation/massage, and a SONY audio sound system.
Currently, the full product information of Chery TJ-1 has not been fully released. We’ll continue to watch for more information about the car. From January to March this year, the cumulative sales of the Chery brand reached 238,133 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 38.3%.
