Jetour Auto PH reveals plans for 2024
Last night, Jetour Auto Philippines welcomed the New Year by launching a special edition variant of the Dashing called the Symphony. It's equipped with a JL audio system that consists of a 4-channel amplifier, a subwoofer, and powerful speakers/tweeters. Last but not least, it's painted in a unique shade called Aurora Green that's available only to this particular variant.
But if you thought that was the only vehicle Jetour would launch in the Philippines this year, better think again. After countless reports and insider info, Jetour Auto Philippines Managing Director Miguelito Jose has officially confirmed that the Dashing PHEV and the go-anywhere T2 are coming this year.
The plug-in hybrid crossover and the rugged 4x4 SUV will serve as the brand's premiere products in 2024 and will highlight Jetour's cutting-edge technologies as well as the brand philosophy of travel. No exact specifications were revealed by the automaker last night. However, we already have a good idea of what to expect once they're revealed.
Based on our previous reports, the Dashing PHEV will most likely come with a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that's assisted by a pair of electric motors and a 3-speed dedicated hybrid transmission (DHT). In other markets, the PHEV has a combined system output of 326 PS and 545 Nm of torque. It also benefits from a vehicle-to-load feature that's rated to handle 3,000 kW – allowing users to power up devices while outdoors or in times of disaster.
As for the T2, it will likely have a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder under the hood that makes 254 PS with 390 Nm of torque. It will then be saddled with a 7-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox along with a 4WD system by BorgWarner with different drive modes.
Aside from the T2 and Dashing PHEV, there will also be another crossover the automaker will bring this 2024. However, Jose has yet to say what this exact model will be. Our best guess is that this could be the X90 Plus as they also shared plans to bring it here last year.
So far, there is no exact timeline yet as to when they will reveal both vehicles to the public. However, an anonymous source told us that the two crossover SUVs could make their grand debut at the 2024 Manila International Auto Show (MIAS). With that, we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for any possible sightings of the two vehicles.
