Chery started the journey of R&D of fuel-efficient and new energy vehicles in 1999, which made it the first-ever Chinese auto manufacturer in the field of new energy technology. With years of development, Chery has now established a perfect new energy technology R&D system, covering vehicle integration, core technologies, and the development capability of core parts. Today, Chery has already applied for more than 900 patents in the field of new energy and obtained more than 600 patents, leading the auto industry, and one of the results of this investment is the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro e+.
While in the field of PHEV hybrid, Chery has made breakthroughs in advance. DHT–the full-featured hybrid transmission independently developed by Chery, has four key advantages by virtue of the key technologies of “3 engines, 3 gears, 9 working modes, and 11 speed ratios”. In addition, Chery’s “super hybrid” brings the hybrid vehicle industry a significant solution to solve the problem of weak power output.
Moreover, Chery has also developed a specialized 1.5-liter turbo engine for the hybrid system. With its “i-HEC” combustion system, the new generation of intelligent thermal management system of the engine, and all-dimensional ultra-low friction, the engine possesses significantly improved thermal efficiency. And the specialized engine for the hybrid systems has won the award of “The Best Engine in Brazil of 2022”.
Under the support of hybrid technology, Tiggo 8 Pro e+, Chery’s first PHEV model which was put into mass production, got global attention during its launch. With its maximum torque output of 545 Nm which allows for a five-second 0-100 km/h acceleration, the Tiggo 8 Pro e+ is blisteringly quick and has extremely low fuel consumption. It can even travel in full electricity for up to 95 km.
In the upcoming days, Chery will keep up with the trend of the new energy industry to make comprehensive efforts with its brand new products of new energy which will cover multiple markets with its subsequent PHEV models, gradually opening the prelude to the global layout of new energy products.
