Chery Openly Price Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV, Present at GIIAS 2023 – Nitoba

Jakarta — PT Chery Sales Indonesia (CSI) has confirmed that it will bring in the Tiggo 8 Pro Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) engine variant this year.

This was conveyed by PT CSI Vice President Harry Kamora on the sidelines of the handover ceremony for the first 100 Omoda 5 units at JIExpo, Saturday (1/4/2023) yesterday.

According to Harry, Chery is very serious about working on the Indonesian market, and therefore must compete and follow new trends.

“When other brands start playing hybrid, even Chery’s EV (electric car) has to play there too,” said Harry to Carmudi.

Harry also revealed that the hybrid car market actually has potential, but the price is still expensive.

“The PHEV concert in Indonesia is good, but the price is too high,” he said.

Based on Carmudi’s monitoring, the price of PHEV cars in Indonesia is still very expensive.

One of them is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which is an SUV like the Tiggo 8 Pro.

Sourced from Mitsubishi’s official website, the Outlander PHEV costs IDR 1.322 billion before finally being discounted to IDR 898 million.

Therefore, Harry dared to say that Chery would strive to present the Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV at an affordable price.

“Let me give you an illustration, Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV 2.0L can cost 700 million rupiahs, we will fight for that,” he explained.

It is also reported that Tiggo 8 Pro does not only have a new variant, but is also experiencing a facelift alias refresh.

Harry promised that Chery Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV will be present to take advantage of the GIIAS 2023 grand moment which will be held on 10-20 August.

“Fix, GIIAS (2023),” said Harry.

The plan for the presence of the Tiggo 8 Pro hybrid variant is not without reason. Chery assesses that the acceptance of this SUV itself is quite good in society.

This was explained by Harry through the sales data that Chery had achieved.

“Tiggo Series has sold 200 units, Tiggo 8 Pro 60 percent and the remaining Tiggo 7 Pro,” he said.

In addition, the production of Tiggo 8 Pro in Indonesia will become an export base for all right-hand drive countries in the world like other Chery cars later.
