Chery Holding’s Jetour brand has announced that it is accepting applications for a name for the new crossover: users of the Chinese segment of the Internet can submit their version until January 1, 2022, after which the best name will be chosen by voting. In the meantime, the model is known under the X-1 index: it is a cross-coupe with a futuristic design, which is promised a third level autopilot from Huawei. In China, sales of new items will begin in 2022.

Jetour X-1 is built on the new Kunlun platform, which provides for the installation of an autopilot of the third level according to the SAE classification (the car can accelerate and brake, as well as move independently if a number of conditions are met without the participation of the driver). Design features include a trendy bezel-less grille with integrated headlights, a sloping roofline, piled-up C-pillars, a small roof spoiler and Y-shaped lights.

It is assumed that the crossover is driven by a hybrid power plant familiar from the Chery Tiggo 8 Plus Kunpeng e +. It includes a 170 horsepower 1.5-liter engine and a pair of electric motors. On the Tiggo 8 Plus Kunpeng e +, the aggregate output of the units is 462 horsepower and 510 Nm of torque.

So far, several variants of Chinese names have been proposed for the model, which translate as “Falcon”, “Tuna” and “Jade Emperor”.
