Chery South Africa has embarked on a prestigious partnership with the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) and the Department of Transport, amplifying the luxury and performance quotient at the 15th BRICS Summit held in Johannesburg in August 2023.
As the official Presidential Vehicle Partner, Chery South Africa presented 60 Chery Tiggo 8 Pro MAX vehicles to event organizers, fortifying the transportation experience for senior delegates and international attendees. Esteemed dignitaries, including Deputy Director-General Clayson Monyela from DIRCO, Miss Hlengiwe Bengu, Chief Financial Officer for DIRCO, and Minister Li from the Chinese Embassy, attended the symbolic moment alongside senior representatives from the Department of Transport.
President Cyril Ramaphosa, hosting the BRICS Summit, extends the welcome to senior government officials from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, as well as their partner organizations. Impressively, President Ramaphosa has also invited leaders from 67 other countries, with a special emphasis on 53 African nations, reflecting the summit's diverse and inclusive nature.
Chery South Africa's Executive Deputy General Manager, Tony Liu, expressed pride in the partnership, highlighting that being an official Presidential Vehicle Partner demands the highest standards of luxury, performance, and safety. The flagship Chery Tiggo 8 Pro MAX seamlessly meets these criteria, encapsulating opulence, cutting-edge technology, and paramount safety features.
This strategic collaboration aligns well with Chery South Africa's recent launch of upgraded models – Chery Tiggo 8 Pro and Pro MAX – catering to the discerning tastes of customers and fleets alike. The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro MAX's refreshed design, including a new grille, updated lighting elements, and a stunning LED light bar, signals a blend of aesthetics and innovation.
A standout feature of the Tiggo 8 Pro MAX is its comprehensive safety suite. Equipped with radar-controlled adaptive cruise control and an advanced safety system monitoring the vehicle's surroundings, passengers are assured of top-tier security. The interior exemplifies luxury with leather seats, dedicated air conditioning controls for each row, a captivating SONY sound system, and superior sound dampening, elevating the driving experience.
Under the hood, the Tiggo 8 Pro MAX boasts Chery's most potent engine in South Africa – a two-liter turbo-petrol engine delivering 187 kW at 5,500 rpm and 390 Nm of torque between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm. Paired with a sophisticated seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the vehicle promises dynamic performance and seamless shifts.
Chery South Africa's commitment goes beyond providing vehicles; it extends a comprehensive range of services to BRICS organizers. This commitment encompasses a 24/7 roadside support service, courtesy vehicles, scratch and dent repair, and a dedicated concierge service, underpinning an exceptional experience.
Chery South Africa's collaboration with DIRCO and the Department of Transport not only marks an essential partnership but also reinforces Chery's dedication to luxury, performance, and safety.
