Chery Remains China’s Top Vehicle Exporter For 20th Consecutive Year
Chery set multiple records in 2022 and remained China’s top passenger car exporter for its 2nd decade.
Chery may not be selling cars in Malaysia right now, but the company recently confirmed that it has been China’s top vehicle exporter for 2 decades straight. In 2022, the company once again clinched that title with a record setting 451,337 units exported to markets outside of China, representing an incredible 67.7% year-on-year growth.
Overall Chery’s sales have been strong. In 2022, they sold 1,232,727 vehicles – the first instance of the company breaching 7-figures in its annual sales volume. Today, the brand has 11.2 million global users, 2.4 million of whom are outside of China. Chery also says that it’s amongst the most inventive companies in the industry with 25,795 patents applied for as of the end of 2022.
Here’s the press release with more.
Having sold 105,483 units in December, the Chery Group has made history by selling 1,232,727 units globally in 2022 (+28.2% year-on-year, or YoY), including 451,337 units outside China (+67.7% YoY).
Not only is this the first time Chery’s annual sales have broken through the one-million-unit barrier; it is also an annual export record, and means that Chery has now topped Chinese-brand passenger car exports for 20 years in a row. Chery now has 11.2 million global users, including 2.4 million outside China.
Chery continues to develop competitive products of global standard through close interaction with its customers worldwide. 2022 saw the company break its own monthly export record four times consecutively, with four months of exports exceeding 50,000 units. Driven mainly by the Tiggo 7 and Tiggo 8 series, Chery’s cumulative export volume currently accounts for a fifth of the total export volume of Chinese automobiles over the same period.
Chery’s strategic determination and relentless pursuit of high-quality development have taken all its major business indicators to record highs. With innovation as the main driving force, Chery continues to enhance the ‘Technology Chery’ mindset and accelerate its transformation into a global technology company.
In view of the automotive industry’s accelerated transformation, Chery has introduced top global professionals, established a team of chief scientists and led the creation of its technological innovation factory to constantly develop new technologies through new products. As of end-2022, Chery has applied for a total of 25,795 patents and obtained 17,177, of which 37% were for inventions, placing it amongst the top in the industry.
Based on the principle of win-win cooperation, Chery has continuously expanded its circle of partners and established a number of cross-border alliances for joint innovation, integrated innovation and open collaboration. The company has joined hands with Haier, Huawei, Luxshare Precision, CATL, iFLYTEK, Horizon Robotics and other first-class enterprises in various industries in the fields of industrial internet, intelligent solutions, traction battery systems and ecosystem cooperation.
In 2022, the industrial internet platform HiGOPlat, built by Chery and COSMOPlat, was put into operation and applied in Chery Qingdao Super Factory and Chery Wuhu Super Factory in succession, establishing a new production mode of mass individual customisation and creating a pace-setting ‘beacon factory’, which became a successful practice for Chery in exploring an intelligent factory construction empowered by the industrial internet.
For 2023, the Chery Group will strive to maintain growth in annual sales volume and in other major business indicators, to achieve a sustained improvement in business quality in order to successfully rank among the world’s top automotive enterprises in the near future.
