Chairman of the Board and General Manager Yin Tongyao said the Tiggo 5 fulfilled the company's promise of making high quality cars.

"We realized the brand redefinition, system transformation, and the leap in product quality," Yin said.

The company will also offer early buyers of Tiggo 5 five services, including 24-hour roadside assistance. "Chery would not have realized its development without the trust and support from our customers in the past 16 years, and they are the greatest motivator for Chery's progress," said Huang Huaqiong, Chery's general manager of sales.
