At present, China's auto industry is accelerating to low-carbon development driven by the "dual carbon" strategy, and the development of new energy vehicles has ushered in new opportunities. China's production and sales of new energy vehicles have ranked first in the world for six consecutive years, with a cumulative promotion of more than 7 million vehicles, accounting for more than 50% of the global total sales.

Although the current automobile market is depressed due to the global chip supply and demand structure, the latest statistics of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers show that from January to August, the production and sales of new energy vehicles in China reached 1.813 million units and 1.799 million units respectively, with the penetration rate of cumulative sales approaching 11%.According to the current trend, China is expected to achieve the target of 20% market share of new energy vehicles by 2025 ahead of schedule, according to China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

Over the years, thanks to the unique "V-shaped" development process and vehicle product development system, Chery has accumulated technology and achievements in the field of the battery, motor and electric control system, which has become a strong support for its brand and products. In terms of batteries, Chery adopts cells from CATL and other top global battery suppliers, and its self-developed battery packs have achieved the optimal level of battery energy consumption in the industry. At the same time, Chery has integrated battery active equalization technology, CVCC charging and other core technologies into the battery system to ensure the durability and safety of the battery. In terms of motors, Chery and Yaskawa have jointly established Chery Yaskawa Electric Drive System Co., Ltd.. Compared with the equivalents, its product has the characteristics of lighter weight, higher efficiency of electric drive, larger winding density and so on. The weight of the whole machine is 22% less than that of the equivalent. In terms of electric control, Chery independently developed vehicle control unit (VCU) can collect and monitor the running state of vehicle battery and motor more quickly, more accurately and more intelligently, making the overall performance of the vehicle better in terms of power performance, safety performance and energy recovery.

With strong and solid technical support, Chery's sales of new energy vehicles have also maintained rapid growth. From January to August this year, Chery Group sold 55,372 new energy vehicles, up 190.4% year-on-year. EQ1 has played the leading role in micro pure electric vehicles in China and even the world. Since its launching in 2017, EQ1 has undergone four times of evolution and won several First prizes in China: the first self-developed pure electric model, the first pure electric model built with lightweight all-aluminum body, the first two-door four-seat pure electric model with a driving range of more than 300 kilometers, the first pure electric model with automatic parking function, and the pure electric model with the highest penetration rate of shared travel.
