Chery, in addition to offering new automotive products and technologies to its Pakistani customers, is also making efforts towards environmental protection and building a greener Pakistan, as noted by Song Huaifu, the deputy country director of Chery Automobile in Pakistan.
During Chery’s 2023 Global Dealer Theme Conference, dealers around the world tested and drove core Chery models. The two plug-in hybrid products of the TIGGO family, the TIGGO 8 PRO e+ and the TIGGO 7 PRO e+, fully demonstrate Chery’s leading technical strength in the field of hybrid power with their all-round performance of lower energy consumption and stronger power.
Chery’s 1.5T hybrid engine, equipped with the TIGGO 8 PRO e+, can accelerate to a top speed of 7.5 seconds per 100 km, directly eliciting screams from on-site test-drive dealers. Even though there are on-site humps, its sheer power still brings a strong sense of stability.
Huaifu said that “Tiggo 4 and Tiggo 8 are our star products in Pakistan and our dealers are requesting us to introduce more products of Tiggo family, which they are confident will be well-received across Pakistan.”
Over the past few years, air pollution in Pakistan has increased dramatically, making Pakistan one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change caused by air pollution. There is a need to reduce vehicle tailpipe emissions, and electric vehicles are an effective solution. However, because of the limited infrastructure (such as adequate charging facilities) needed to support a large-scale transformation of the transport sector, the transition from fuel-powered vehicles to electric vehicles can not be completed overnight.
By combining the advantages of pure electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), PHEVs can achieve pure electric, low-emission driving and increase the driving range of the vehicle through the hybrid mode, making them a powerful driver of the transition from fuel vehicles to electric vehicles in Pakistan.
As one of the earliest auto companies to engage in R&D of new energy technologies, Chery closely follows the trend of the times and accelerates the provision of new energy products to the global market. “After the two PHEV products of TIGGO 8 PRO e+ and TIGGO 7 PRO e+, Chery will also launch more new energy products in the form of BEV and other forms of power, comprehensively assisting all humans in forming low-carbon and green travel habits,” added Huaifu.
In addition to adding environment-friendly and low-carbon elements to its products, Chery recently announced the creation of a Green Public Welfare Fund Plan, signaling a new pinnacle in Chery’s corporate social responsibility in its global strategy. Chery has played a role in the aftermath of the major earthquake in Turkiye, in public welfare activities for women in Kuwait, and in supporting children at the winter games in Pakistan, among others.
“In the future, we expect to conduct more activities with various types of Pakistani public welfare organizations to showcase the warmth and humanistic love of the Chery brand and jointly create a new starting point for a better life for our iron brothers and sisters,” concluded Qi Jie, Regional Director of Southern Asia of Chery group.
