Chery to go hybrid crazy by 2010

At a recent international forum on new energy cars in Beijing, a Chery representitive claimed that by 2010 half of Cherys vehicle sales will be hybrid based models, and a further 20% will be new energy models. Echoing Hu Jin Tao’s sustainable development theory, Chery representitive Liu Zhijia had this to say:

“New energy is a driving force for the sustainable development of auto industry, by 2010 more than fifty percent vehicles produced by Chery will be equipped with hybrid systems, and half of those vehicles will be powered by new energy,”

Liu Zhijia went onto say that Cherys hybrid sedans will be in full production by mid 2008 which will reduce the emissions of Chery vehicles by 10 to 30%. Chery will also begin producing full electric cars, as well as alcohol vehicles. Chery aims to develop its own hydrogen fuel cells by 2015.

Chery has huge plans for hybrids in 2008 and beyond:
During a recent international renewable energy forum in Beijing, Liu Zhijia, Assistant General Manager of Chery, said by 2010 half of Chery's vehicles will be hybrids and half of those hybrids will run on clean fuels. Here is exactly what he said:

New energy is a driving force for the sustainable development of auto industry, by 2010 more than fifty percent vehicles produced by Chery will be equipped with hybrid systems, and half of those vehicles will be powered by new energy.

Yin Tongyao, Chery's chief executive has said Chery "will reach annual sales of 1 million autos by 2010." That would translate to annual sales of 500,000 hybrids a year from Chery. For comparison, the total U.S sales for hybrids for 2006 was 254,545. Will Chinese hybrids flood the U.S market? Not right away. Chery does not intend to enter the US market for four years.

At the forum, Liu also said the hybrid development plan will have three phases. The first step has mild hybrid sedans starting production in 2008 which means that overall emissions from Chery vehicles will be reduced between 10 and 30 percent. The second phase is the development and mass production of full hybrids and electric/alcohol vehicles by 2010. That's when Chery expects half of its sales to come from hybrids. The final phase is the development of fuel cells cars by 2015.

The Chinese vice-minister for science and technology, Cao Jianlin, was also at the forum and he said the government will provide funding and tax breaks as part of a government plan to encourage green technology. Chinese auto makers Shanghai Automotive and FAW has also shown interest in hybrid technology. The future of Chinese hybrids looks bright.

Chery hybrids will make up the majority of Beijing Olympic's official fleet:
Chinese hybrids are going to make a big splash at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Chery won the contract to provide fifty of the eighty cars in the official traffic service, and all will be hybrids. Dubbed "Olympics Green Messengers," the hybrids include forty Chery BSGs and ten Chery ISGs, which are based on the Chery A5 sedan (pictured).

We were clued in that hybrids would play a significant role in the Olympics (a giant advertising event) when GM said it would introduce the Buick LaCrosse Hybrid at the games. Considering China is literally part-owner of all the country's automakers that hope to market hybrids around the world soon, it's no surprise GM is going to be upstaged by Chinese hybrids when the opening ceremonies take place August 8.

Chery is granted permit for hybrid sedan production



Shanghai, March 28 (Gasgoo.com) China's carmaker Chery Automobile Co., Ltd. recently said that two Chery hybrid sedans have received the production permit from the country's industry regulator.

Chery SQR 7130 and Chery SQR 7190 are listed in the latest public notice of the "Automobile Manufacturers and Products" issued by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of China.

Of the two Chery models, Chery SQR 7130 is the carmaker's first own brand hybrid sedan. It's a low-emission hybrid compact car equipped with a 1.3L engine and an A5 chassis. This model is oriented to users who need the private means of transportation in urban centers.

A Chery executive said that this own-brand model can fill in a gap in the hybrid sedan market and match up to the government's standards of energy saving and emission reducing. The production permit granted by the NDRC also indicates that the technical strengths of Chery Auto were well recognized by the national economic planner.

Chery has won the bid to provide 50 of the 80 vehicles for the upcoming 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Of the 50 Chery vehicles for Olympic services, 40 are mild hybrid sedans.

Chery powering ahead in eco-friendly tech

Updated: 2008-07-01 13:38

Chery Automobile Co has been in the headlines since the end of last year when it entered into agreements with Quantum LLC, Daimler Chrysler and Fiat.

The now-familiar brand has long been a pioneer, but the partnerships led some in the industry to think it would follow in the footsteps of some domestic brands that faded into history after forming joint ventures.

"We don't want to make cars behind closed doors," said Yin Tongyao, Chery president. "Chery never refuses joint ventures but we have a purpose in running them. We must assume the majority control."

Yin said Chery will go more eco-friendly, more energy efficient and be much safer.

The auto industry started to draw foreign partner in 1983, often trading market shares for technology. The period was known for "cars from the world on the Chinese market".

Two decades later domestic auto companies are seeking a bigger say in joint operations. Chinese partners of foreign-invested ventures are heading down the roads they increasingly select while Chery and other home producers are exploring overseas markets.

Analysts note that Chery began a new era in joint ventures when it expanded overseas with its own products and brand. Chery's approach follows time-tested strategies of other auto powers.

This year, Chery is expected to market 6,000 gas-powered vehicles in the Middle East powered by components of Landi Renzo.

The automaker is embracing the world's best technology to generate its own brand. With Landi Renzo it has found harmony with a partner of similar far-sightedness.

"Landi Renzo has a complete product chain that powers our endeavor to spread in China," said Wu Wei, general manager of Beijing Landi Renzo Autogas System Co Ltd. "But we will not limit ourselves to integrating our designs in made-in-China products. We are pushing to spread all our products and above all, integrate our eco-friendly concepts into social values."

Some experts note a smart enterprise joins society instead of operating apart, a concept Landi Renzo has already put into action.

Ten years of vision have brought the company a convergence of location and people in the world's largest market.

Landi Renzo plans to transfer its environmental and new energy technologies to the country, winning a larger market.

As China evolves to emphasize new energy and a sound ecology, it will need more partners from the global village like Landi Renzo.

First 50 Chery hybrid taxis run on Beijing streets

July 01, 2008

Shanghai, July 1 (Gasgoo.com) In the days when fuel prices are soaring, a small number of gas-electric hybrid taxis running on the Beijing streets have arrested the attention of passengers and pedestrians alike, reported Beijing Evening News today.

This hybrid electric vehicle driven by BSG light hybrid power system were made by Chinese carmaker Chery Auto. The hybrid "Beijing Taxi" featuring the words "Hybrid Electric Vehicle" has the same yellow color and car body with a common taxi, but its brand logo has changed to Chery A5 from the previous Hyundai Elantra.

Fifty Chery A5 hybrids were delivered to seven taxi companies such as Xinyue (New Moon), Sanyuan, Yinjian in Beijing on June 21 as the first batch of "weak-hybrid" vehicles used in China's taxi market. The 50 hybrid taxis have started to run on Beijing streets for business. These Chery hybrids will be used to ferry athletes and spectators during the 2008 Olympic Games in the capital of China.

The "weak-hybrid" model uses gasoline as its main power, and its working engine will recharge a special cell in the vehicle. The electric power will start to work for the vehicle at idle or initial speed. When the speed reaches 5km/h and above, the power program will switch back to gasoline. This power system, which is suitable for cars on the often-congested Beijing roads and streets, can reduce a vehicle's fuel consumption by 15%.

Chery hybrid vehicles debut at Beijing Olympics

August 07, 2008

As part of the transportation arrangements for the Beijing Olympics, 50 hybrid vehicles co-developed with Ricardo are being provided by Chery Automobile Company Ltd. Known as the "Olympics Green Messengers," these vehicles are some of China's first hybrid vehicles and will go into full production in the months following the games.

With its expertise in hybrid electric vehicles and its wide-ranging skills in systems integration and vehicle controls and electronics, Ricardo was a natural choice as engineering partner for Chery when the Chinese automaker decided to develop its first hybrid products. Chery set out to develop two new vehicles based on its existing A5 sedan.

The first is a stop-start hybrid based on a 12-volt belt starter-generator (BSG) linked to a 1.6 liter gasoline engine with a 5-speed manual transmission. The second is a more comprehensive mild hybrid based on the same vehicle but equipped with a 1.3 liter gasoline engine and a 12 kw crankshaft-mounted 151-volt integrated starter-generator (ISG). These technologies provide significant fuel savings through the use of advanced powertrain control and energy management strategies.

In addition to developing these two new hybrid products, an important objective of the Chery program was technology transfer through integration of the joint program with its own engineering processes. A dedicated on-site engineering office was established at Ricardo's Cambridge Technical Centre in the UK. Chery engineers worked alongside colleagues from Ricardo as well as with selected component and sub-system suppliers to undertake key aspects of the project.

Presentation of A5 Hybrid in Paultan:
http://paultan.org/archives/2008/08/07/chery-a5-hybrid-for-beijing-olympics-by-ricardo/

Chinese automaker Chery and automotive components supplier Ricardo developed these hybrid versions of the Chery A5 as part of transportation arrangements for the Beijing Olympics. The 50-unit fleet comprise of two different types of A5s. One is a start-stop “hybrid” which is basically a regular 1.6 liter petrol engine with a 5-speed manual equipped with start-stop system called the Belt Starter-Generator (BSG).

The other is what we would normally consider a hybrid vehicle. A 1.3 liter petrol engine is combined with a crank-mounted 12kW 151 volt motor. The system was fully developed by Ricardo, using an integrated hybrid control unit comprising of motor drive electronics, DC to DC converter and a high-voltage battery pack positioned behind the rear seats with minimal intrusion into the luggage area.

Ricardo claims the 1.3 liter hybrid system provides similiar peak power and torque to a 1.6 liter benchmark engine, with a 15% improvement in fuel consumption over the benchmark. In addition, the start-stop system can restart the engine within 200ms.

Olympic Hybrid Cars to be Mass-produced This Year

SHANGHAI - August 21, 2008:


There are more than 500 new-energy vehicles ferrying athletes and spectators during the ongoing Beijing Olympic Games. They include the Chery A5 and Changan Jiexun hybrid-electric sedans, Shanghai VW's hydrogen fuel-cell sedans, Beiqi Foton's hydrogen fuel-cell buses, and Zhongtong's electric buses.

Most of these Olympic new-energy vehicles will start mass production, sooner or later, after the Olympics, said sina.com.cn today. The Chery A5 and Changan Jiexun hybrid sedans will be mass-produced by the end of this year.

Of the 50 hybrid vehicles offered by Chery for Olympic services, 40 are Chery BSG hybrids and 10 Chery ISG hybrids. The first model is a stop-start hybrid based on a 12-volt belt starter-generator (BSG) linked to a 1.6L gasoline engine. The second is a more comprehensive mild-hybrid based on the same vehicle but equipped with a 1.3L gasoline engine and a 12kw crankshaft-mounted 151-volt integrated starter-generator (ISG).

These technologies provide significant fuel savings through the use of advanced powertrain control and energy management strategies. The Chery A5 hybrid version to be launched after the Olympics will combine the hybrid technologies of both models. The Chery A5 hybrid will be priced between 10,000 yuan ($1,460) and 20,000, higher-priced than the basic A5 series.

Changan Auto has supplied a number of "Jiexun" hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) as taxis for the Beijing Olympic Games. The power electronics for the "mild hybrid" drive was provided by Infineon Technologies AG. By using Infineon's HybridPACK1 power module, Changan's Jiexun HEV cars can speed up to 160 km/h while reducing 20% of gasoline consumption compared to those with combustion engine.

Chery Auto launches hybrid-car offensive

Shanghai, March 2 (Gasgoo.com) Not long after unveiling its first electric car called the S18, China's Chery Auto said it plans to launch two more hybrid cars this year to tap into the growing hybrid car market, reported Shanghai Securities News.

An unnamed Chery engineer told the newspaper that Chery Auto would launch an A5 hybrid car this year and an A3 hybrid in 2010. Also a Tiggo-based hybrid SUV model and a QQ-based pure electric model are under development though no timeline was set for their launch.

All of the electric motors and hybrid systems on these future models are developed by supplier Ricardo, a world leading automotive consultance firm employing over 1,700 people all around the world.

Chery Auto unveiled a 4-door 5-seat car all electric car on January 20, which has a 93 mile driving range, and a top speed of 75 mph. It uses a 336 40 amp-hour lithium-ion phosphate and has a 40 kw motor.

This makes Chery the 2nd Chinese manufacturer to unveil an electric car after BYD, who unveiled its plug-in hybrid BYD F3DM in December 2008.
