At this Automobile Exhibition, Chery will annotate the connotation of “Chinese Power” from four aspects of “Technology, Quality, Green and International”.

Technological Chery - Make breakthroughs with long-term accumulation

With the absence of core technology, transferring from ‘big manufacture country’ to ‘strong manufacture country’ and ‘big brand country’ would be hard to achieve, especially for the technology-intensive industry of automobile manufacture. To master and possess the core technology and intellectual property is the only way for Chinese independent enterprises to survive, develop and grow large and strong. Chery is shouldering a sense of mission and responsibility. At the same time, it is based on the understanding of the current development status and development law of global automobile industry, so Chery make technology-orientation as the basis of enterprise development, and infuse enterprise and brand culture of itself with this concept deeply.

As an enterprise of Chinese independent brand, to become a world famous auto brand, 3 basic conditions of possessing core technology, possessing self-owned brand, and possessing global market are a must. Chery just takes this as the referential goal, and formulates development strategy of building international famous brand. This year, a very important part of Chery’s ‘Intensive Cultivation 2010’ development strategy is ‘intensive cultivation of technology’, which aims to realize development goal of ‘generally advanced, partly leading’.

At this Automotive Exhibition, Chery will exhibit its latest car models equipped with CVT transmission and 2.0TGDI engine. The engine TGDI is of top engine technology in the world nowadays. Along with the coming off of self-owned CVT continuously variable transmission, Chery becomes the automobile enterprise which completely masters the four key technologies of chassis, engine, transmission and engine electronic management system (EMS), realizeing the self-sufficiency of industrial chain. These two technologies will definitely be a highlight in the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition.

In recent years, the R&D cost of Chery reaches over 10% of the annual sales revenue, far exceeding the average level of 5% of global automobile industry. It can be said that this high level of R&D input is just compensating what Chinese auto industry has neglected in the past one hundred years. Also, such input makes Chery acquire many achievements and overcome many difficulties in aspects of technological research and development.

Through this Automotive Exhibition, it can be seen that, from starting from scratch, Chery has become a carmaker who possesses more than 2600 technology patents, masters four traditional core technologies and core new energy technology, such as hybrid, electric car, and alternative energy etc. by unremitting efforts in independent R&D for ten years, and has become a carmaker who sells products to more than 80 countries and regions in the world, establishes 15 production bases in overseas market, and outputs products, technology and culture.

Nowadays Chery has built an outstanding research group of 6000 people, acquired strong research ability, and mastered the core traditional and new energy technologies.

High quality Chery - Quality is the footstone for realization of building an international famous brand

When we mentioned independent brands in the past, we just associated it with rich features and low price, but at this Beijing Automotive Exhibition, Chery will present ‘high-quality Chery’ to the world.

In the year of 2008, when the global car market suffered severe shock by the global financial crisis, Chery made timely planning and adjustment for future development. That is, it targets to control the quality of product, instead of speed of growth as the only target. Besides pursuing the improvement of quality, Chery is dedicated to stabilize the price and promote the brand by the quality.

Quality is the key to open the door of the future, and it cannot be called an ‘international brand’ without quality. Chery accumulates and keeps improving in every aspect, including technology, quality, service and brand. It promotes the core competitiveness constantly. That is why we see that it keeps creating new records of market sales. The target of Chery’s brand development strategy is very clear. That is, to build Chery into an international famous brand, and make it the business card of Chinese auto industry.

In 2008, in the C-NCAP collision test, Chery A3 became the only model gaining 5-star safety among all Chinese car models. And, it is also the first independent R & D model reaching 5-star collision standard at home.

In 2009, in the special spot Inspection by State Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, all the quality indexes of Chery met the state standard. And, most of the indexes even surpass the state standard; in this year, as the first China-made model which received the authoritative inspection, Riich G5 got good mark of 8’56’’ in the north ring of Nurburgring, Germany. Chery, with its rigorous quality control, changes people’s conventional prejudice that the independent brands’ production processes are inferior, and with rough quality.

With its successful quality management, Chery was awarded as ‘National Advanced Collective of Quality Works’, and ‘Grade AAA of Chinese 12315 Quality and Credit’ in succession. In the Initial Quality Study Report on new car by J.D. Power in 2009, Chery automobile ranked top in 2 market segments of compact car and premium compact among 10 classifications.

Behind so many honors, there are unremitting hard efforts made by Chery people in aspects of quality guarantee and improvement. For years, Chery has put emphasis on the construction of the quality control system of products, thus gradually forming the complete set of quality control system of Chery characteristics in product design, raw materials purchasing, supply of spare parts, supplier management, production, sales and service. Its quality control index all targets superior to the state standards. In recent years, it even regards the EU-level as the benchmark of its product standards, and considers global cars as the car development objective.
