Chery Concepts Unveiled
2012 Beijing Auto Show
- Chery provides a peek at its next-generation crossover with the TX concept.
- Chery's ANT concept offers a solution for future urban mobility.
- Chery also will unveil the new Riich G2 sedan.
BEIJING — Chinese automaker Chery, which recently agreed to partner with Jaguar Land Rover, will bring a full slate of products to the upcoming 2012 Beijing Auto Show, including two intriguing concepts, the TX and the ANT.
The swoopy TX is said to preview a potential successor to the CR-V-inspired Chery Tiggo crossover, while providing a glimpse at Chery's still-evolving design DNA. Chinese media reports speculate a production version of the TX will be in production within two years.
The more futuristic ANT concept is said to be inspired by the Smart Fortwo and offers a solution for urban mobility, particularly in congested Chinese cities of the future. The battery-powered ANT is designed for interconnectivity — imagine a "colony" of these two-seaters sharing power and communications.
Also on display in Beijing will be Chery's new Riich G2 compact sedan.
Edmunds.com says: Chery is still in the very early stages of developing its own design language.
