The Tiggo 9 PHEV rolls on 20-inch wheels. The maximum range is claimed to go as far as 1,400km with a fuel efficiency as high as 19.23km/L, both according to WLTC standards. Inside, you’ll find a luxurious interior with a large 15.6-inch, 2.5K infotainment system as the centerpiece.

Chery says the Tiggo 9 PHEV will be launched in Q4 this year with an ICE-only variant, but it hasn’t specified which markets. Would you like Chery Philippines to bring in this flagship hybrid vehicle?
