NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chijet Motor Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: CJET) (the “Company” or “Chijet”), today announced that it has initiated its FA17’s 2024 model project with a -kick-off ceremony held in Yantai on September 20, 2023.
Chijet Motor has undertaken steps to improve its existing models following an in-depth analysis of market trends and technical and economic feasibility assessments of small and medium-sized electric vehicles. The Company is currently conducting comprehensive research on their existing vehicle models, which includes implementing intelligent upgrades, enhancing power systems, and optimizing appearance. This initiative is being carried out on the foundation of their existing small and micro-electric vehicle platforms. The primary goal is to ensure that its vehicles remain technologically up-to-date, aligning with the evolving trends in the new energy automobile market and effectively meet the diverse needs of its customers. This proactive approach establishes a solid foundation for future development and upgrades, ensuring readiness for mass production and sales.
The new 2024 Chijet FA17 is expected to feature a sportier styling, with the front end adopting the exterior design of popular EV models, stylish headlamps, through-type taillights at the rear, and a luggage rack on the roof. The interior has been upgraded to cater to the preferences of the target audiences. The car will be designed to be equipped with a generous 7-inch large screen that serves as the central hub for the vehicle's intelligent features. In addition, the car will be equipped with a lithium iron phosphate battery with a permanent magnet synchronous motor, enhancing both power performance and efficiency while maintaining safety standards.
Mr. Guixin Wu, the general manager of FA17 project, remarked, “The FA17 model is designed to be a travel companion for urban young people. The Chijet Motor R&D team will focus on improving the user experience, platform system upgrades, and thorough technical validation to deliver high-quality new energy automobile products to our extensive user base. Our commitment is to ensure that every user enjoys a superior riding experience.”
Mr. David Yang, Vice President of Chijet Motor, noted that the design of the 2024 FA17 model caters to the aesthetic preferences of young people by embracing a sportier and more futuristic look. The practical cabin space will bring a comfortable and spacious experience to both the driver and passengers. The set mileage closely aligns with real-world driving scenarios, striking a balance between the cost of purchasing the vehicle and the need for adequate travel distance.
According to Chijet’s product launch strategy, the 2024 FA17 model is expected for a release in the Chinese market, Southeast Asia, the Middle East gradually, and other international markets, in a bid to collectively address the demands for family cars among both domestic and international consumers.
