He said the excellent performance of 145,000 vehicles in September also indicates that since the second half of the year, Chery Group has exceeded 100,000 vehicles in a single month for the fourth consecutive month, enhancing the standard of historical sales of a single month for the third time in a row.

He said as two major models of Chery’s sales growth, TIGGO 8 and TIGGO 7 series have obtained a global sales volume of 141,400 and 119,700 respectively from January to September. Moreover, they are also used as vehicles for presidents and state guests in some overseas countries/regions, which has won the favour of global consumers.
While the sales volume is rising steadily, he said ‘Technology Chery’ has also accelerated its pace and occupied a seat in technology.
On the “Yaoguang 2025 Chery Technology Day” on September 16, Chery Group announced the strategy of “Yaoguang” 2025 cutting-edge technologies with 13 core technologies, including platform architecture, three-power system, intelligent driving, smart cloud platform and ecological partners and launched the new vision concept vehicle, GENE.
He said currently, the automotive industry is quietly becoming the entrance to explore the metaverse. This is large because the combination of metaverse and driving scenarios can truly create a mobile intelligent space, enabling users to experience the new intelligent technologies beyond driving.
“It is understood that the concept vehicle Gene is equipped with a “mystery mode”, also called a “metaverse mode” compared with other new concept vehicles of competitors. The exterior lights of the concept vehicle are composed of real mode (real-active driving) and virtual mode (meta-automatic driving), which can be switched according to the user’s needs.
As the lights turn to the metaverse mode, Chery’s logo will also change from the real mode to the meta-virtual logo mode.”
Moreover, the interior trim also boasts a dual mode, which can be experienced by the force of the interaction between the steering wheel and the seat. In the real-driving mode, the steering wheel will be set close to the driver, and the seat will provide a comfortable driving posture for the driver. While in the meta-virtual mode, the steering wheel will move away from the driver actively and enter automatic driving mode.
Moreover, the concept vehicle GENE adopts a sliding trunk and is equipped with two sets of drones as well as electric skateboards. It also provides users with a lifestyle of outdoor sightseeing and recording.
