Jetour currently sells 13 different SUVs, including one pure electric. But 13 cars is not enough so last month Jetour six new cars. One was Jetour’s first off-roader, T-1, called Traveler in China, which had a public debut at the event. T-1 will start delivereis in Q3. And today, the T-3 concept was unveiled.

The off-road monster will be 5.3 meters long, 2 meters wide, and 1.9 meters high, with a wheelbase of about 3 meters. The second row has only two seats, so the T-3 is a four-seater. The rear passenger doors are hinged at the rear rather than the front; this solution is usually called suicide doors.

The car will have four electric motors, each 250 kW, and a peak torque of 400 Nm. The vehicle’s total power will be over 1300 horsepower, and the acceleration is 0-100km/h in 3 seconds. The extended range version (EREV), where ICE only charges the battery, will have a range of 1400 km with a full tank and full battery and an efficiency of 3.5 kWh/liter.

Jetour also presented its Kunlun platform, which underpins T-3 and supports BEV, PHEV, and EREV vehicles, SUVs, off-roaders, and pickups. The following vehicle in Jetour’s lineup is a P-2/P-3 pickup truck based on Jetour T-3, so Kunlun will most likely underpin it. Jetours claims that the Kunlun platform will have L4 autonomous driving capability.

Editor’s comment

In March, Jetour sold 19,507 cars in China, 94% up from the same month last year. The sales Q1 2023 are 51,948 cars, up 94% YoY. Chery also launched a new premium EV called Sterra last week, and it seems we will hear a lot in 2023 about this Wuhu-based automaker who remained rather quiet the last few years and got headlines mainly with their mini EVs under the QQ brand.
