Automotive brand Chery maintained its position as the top China carmaker exporter for 18 straight years after rolling out 730,000 units in 2020.

Based on their data, the midsize seven-seater Chery Tiggo 8 was the top seller for the brand, delivering 100,000 units all around the globe last year.

Currently, around 9.05 million Chery vehicles have been sold worldwide. Out of the said number, 1.7 million (almost 20 percent) are used outside of China.

Chery registered a 28 percent year-on-year growth in the fourth quarter of last year compared to the same period in 2019. Despite the tough situations in 2020, Chery achieved 18.7 percent year-on-year export growth.
