On May 23, the first Yangtze River Delta Integrated Innovation Achievement Exhibition (hereinafter referred to as the Yangtze River Delta Innovation Exhibition) and the 9th China (Wuhu) Popular Science Products Expo (hereinafter referred to as the Science Expo) officially kicked off in Wuhu, Anhui . As one of the representative enterprises of the “host” city, Chery Automobile brought 12 heavyweight exhibits including forward-looking power, forward-looking technology, concept cars, etc. The “Great Powers” made their debut on the same stage, jointly demonstrating the latest achievements of my country’s technological innovation and regional cooperation in the Yangtze River Delta.
Leaders and guests from three provinces and one city in the Yangtze River Delta visited Chery’s exhibition area
From the 1.6TGDI “strongest Chinese chip” with surging power, to the “zero emission” and pollution-free hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, to the “LION smart cockpit” full of futuristic sci-fi sense… At this year’s Yangtze River Delta Innovation Exhibition, Not only can you see the epitome of Chery’s 22 years of technological innovation, but also Chery’s exploration of future travel methods. The main leaders of the three provinces and one city in the Yangtze River Delta also came to Chery’s exhibition area during the exhibition tour to experience Chery’s innovative strength up close.
Chery ACTECO series third-generation 1.6TGDI engine
The third-generation 1.6TGDI engine of the ACTECO series, which occupies the core position of Chery’s exhibition area, is the first direct-injection gasoline engine of a Chinese brand that meets the National VI emission regulations (meeting the National VI b emission standard). This engine adopts five advanced technologies including Chery iHEC (intelligent effect) combustion system, rapid heating thermal management system, rapid response supercharging technology, friction reduction technology, and lightweight technology. The fuel thermal efficiency is greater than 37.1%, and the maximum power is 145KW. The peak torque is 290N∙m, and the power performance surpasses that of mainstream joint venture brands with the same displacement. It is praised as “the strongest Chinese core” by the outside world.
The ACTECO series engine is not only the first Chinese brand to fully develop a series of engines with independent intellectual property rights, but also has accumulated more than 7 million users. It is exported to more than 80 countries and regions around the world along with the complete vehicle, and exported to the United States and Japan separately , Germany and other auto industry powerhouses have achieved countless users’ word-of-mouth. On May 28, the third-generation 1.6TGDI engine of the ACTECO series will be equipped with a new generation of Tiggo 8 for mass production and launch.
The CVT25, which is next to the 1.6TGDI engine, is a high-end continuously variable transmission independently developed by China, and was selected as one of the “World’s Top Ten Transmissions” in 2019. It can manually simulate 9 gears, the maximum output torque is 250N∙m, supports start-stop, electronic shift, 48V and other extended functions, and can be widely used in traditional and hybrid vehicles. At the same time, this gearbox has fast power response, excellent NVH performance and fuel economy, comparable to Japanese CVT.
Chery Arrizo 5 hydrogen fuel cell vehicle
In Chery’s forward-looking power exhibition area, exhibits such as fuel cell electric vehicles and “zero-emission” hydrogen fuel components jointly demonstrated the development trend of energy-saving and environmentally friendly new energy vehicles in the future. Among them, fuel cell vehicles use the reverse reaction of electrolyzed water to directly convert chemical energy into electrical energy. It can be filled with hydrogen in 3 minutes, and the maximum cruising range is 700 kilometers. The start-up time of the fuel cell is less than 6 seconds, and the volume specific power is as high as 4.0kW/L, 30% higher than the 3.1KW/L of internationally renowned brands, reaching the international leading level.
EXEED EIUV concept car
The “LION Smart Cockpit”, which is not far from Chery’s hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, integrates forward-looking technologies in in-vehicle entertainment and the Internet of Things. It has functions such as face recognition, AI voice interaction, and car-home linkage. It can realize full voice operation, fatigue detection, and provide personalized services according to users’ daily habits. It also supports smart home (desk lamps, fans, and sweeping robots) and other functions. It can realize the seamless connection between driving and life.
Chery smart city sand table
Core technology is the strong foundation of an enterprise, an industry, and a country, and it is the key capability for independent auto brands to compete with international first-line brands. Over the years, Chery Automobile has always adhered to the development route of mastering core technologies through independent innovation. Judging from Chery’s achievements at the Yangtze River Delta Innovation Exhibition, Chery has firmly grasped the core technologies in the key fields of automobile research and development, whether in the traditional technology field or the cutting-edge technology field, and is continuing to lead the national automobile industry with cutting-edge technology. The advancement of industrial technology has helped China’s auto industry to reach a new level.
