To this end, it also set an ambitious goal: "the Xingtu brand plans to sell 60, 000 vehicles in 2019, and will strive to achieve the sales target of 100000 vehicles." But in the end, it failed to achieve as scheduled.
At present, Xingtu Motors' products include chasing Wind Series, TX Series, TXL Series and range Moon Series. In August, the real car map of Star era ES, the first car of Xingtuo brand electric car series, was revealed that the new car will be launched in November and will compete with similar models such as BYD Han EV, Zero running C01, Nezha S, etc. At that time, Yin Tongyue, chairman of Chery holding Group, personally stood on the platform for Star era ES and once again set a sales target for Xingtuo Motor. Yin Tongyue said that next year, the combined sales of the two product lines of Xingtu and Xingera in China will be 300000 vehicles, plus about 200000 cars for export, which is conservatively said to be 500000 vehicles. In other words, Yin Tongyue has set a sales target of 500000 cars for next year.
Jettos sold 32100 vehicles in September, up 68.9% from a year earlier. Jetway Motor is a series of automobile products launched by Chery Holdings Group in January 2018.

New car positioning off-road SUV, from its positioning and price point of view, the new car may become another popular model after the Jetta X70.
Taken together, Chery, Starway and Jetta all posted good gains in September, which could further boost Chery's sales with the launch of new cars, including Chery Discovery 06, Chery eQ7 and shortcut travelers. Of course, as new energy vehicles have gradually become the main battlefield of the car market, Chery Group has also begun to accelerate the layout of new energy vehicles.
