Alado bringing in 4 new Chery models

BEIJING: Alado Corp Sdn Bhd, the sole importer of Chery vehicles in Malaysia, plans next year to introduce four new models, of which one would be a 1.3-litre model in the QQ range currently being sold in the country, executive chairman Tan Sri Cam Soh Thiam Hong said.

The estimated combined sales of the four models would be 5,500 units, comprising 2,500 completely-built-up (CBU) units and 3,000 completely-knocked-down (CKD) vehicles, he told Malaysian journalists attending the Chery Automobile business conference here.

A Chery multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), V5, would be available in March, while the Chery A1 sedan, Tiggo sport utility vehicle (SUV) and 1.1-litre and 1.3-litre versions of the under RM60,000 QQ6 were expected to be available in June or July.

The SUV and MPV would be priced below RM100,000 and the Chery QQ6, about 30% higher than the 800cc QQ currently sold in Malaysia, Soh said.

The QQ manual transmission is priced at RM39,888 on the road while the automated mechanical transmission (AMT) QQ costs RM42,888. Alado sold more than 100 QQs last year and more than 400 this year, he said.

Soh said with the anticipated higher sales, the company was in discussion with potential partners that had existing after-sales service centres, one of which was Edaran Otomobil Nasional Bhd, to expand its network of service centres from the present 45 to more than 100.

The CBU units would be imported by Alado unit, Alado Bumi Sdn Bhd, while the CKD units would be exported to Indonesia and Thailand, he added.

The models that will make their way to Malaysia next year were showcased at the Beijing Auto Show along with the Eastar bullet-proof car and Chery Tiggo-New Concept Vehicle.
