As it became known, the production of Chery cars will be launched in Uzbekistan at the ADM Jizzakh plant, which belongs to the local company Roodell. The agreement between Roodell and Chery has already been concluded.
To begin with, the popular Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max and Tiggo 7 Pro crossovers, as well as the Arrizo 6 Pro sedan, will be produced. Interestingly, crossovers will not be equipped in the same way as in Russia.
Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max will receive a 1.6-liter 186-horsepower engine instead of a 2-liter engine with 197 hp. At the same time, Chery Tiggo 7 Pro will retain the 1.5-liter engine, the power of which will be increased from 147 to 165 hp. Chery Arrizo 6 Pro in Uzbekistan will be equipped with a 147-horsepower 1.5-liter engine paired with a CVT. In Russia, such a machine is not for sale.
Today we want to open a new page in the history of the development of the car market in Uzbekistan by combining our capabilities. Signing a contract is just the beginning. We have many difficult but interesting tasks ahead of us.
Head of Roodell Daniyara Davletiyarov
Sales of Chery in Uzbekistan should start this year. Initially, the company’s car dealerships will open only in Tashkent. But then dealer centers will appear in 7 more cities. In the future, it is planned to launch the production of electric vehicles.
