HAAH Automotive holding announced a new sub-brand called the T-GO that is going to build crossovers in the United States based on Chery models.
The new sub-brand will start producing cars in the United States from late 2022 based on Chery’s T1X platform. T-GO vehicles will use the same platform as Chery Tiggo 7 so we can expect that it will use the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 154 hp and 230 nm of torque customers. Buyers also can order a 1.6-liter engine with 194 hp and 290 nm of torque. The later is also a turbocharged unit.
In terms of design, T-GO crossover follows the Chinese Vantas more than Chery as some say the T-GO is a rebadged version of the Vantas for the US market. The big grille, LED DRLs, rear lightbar, shark antenna and blacked D-pillar are main design elements for T-GO.
Vantas crossover measures 4,775 mm long and has the wheelbase of 2,799 mm and can carry up to 7 passengers in three rows so we can expect a similar size for the T-GO.
While Vantas will be also available in an extended wheelbase version with 4,970 mm long and the wheelbase of 2,898 mm it is not clear that the T-GO he's going to be produced in line with this version or no.
