2. Chery A1 micro car

The Chery A1 micro car will be launched on the domestic market this month. The Italian-designed model is equipped with a four-cylinder, 1.3-liter DOHC engine that can produce maximum power of 61KW/6,000rpm. With a five-speed manual gearbox offering a top torque of 114Nm/3,800-4,500rpm, the A1 can accelerate from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 18 seconds. It has a top speed of 156 kilometers per hour. The car is 3.7 meters long, 1.578 meters wide, and 1.527 meters high. Chery Automobile spent 1 billion yuan to develop the A1.
Well, I have been telling you about how a brand new modern chassis cost $500 million to develop regardless of who does it at where, and Chery finally gets a taste of how expensive a self-development can get.

Chery A1 was nothing more than a stretched and restyled Matiz with a new engine, but the program cost them $130 million.
