Two Chery QQ3 hatchbacks – a 0.8-litre model and a 1.1-litre version – impressed with very economic fuel consumption figures, cementing its reputation as an affordable and reliable vehicle brand.

Competing in Class A (petrol-engined cars with engine capacities between 750 and 1 150cm3) the Cherys averaged 6.26l /100km and 6.48l /100km respectively.

This year’s Total Economy Run was run over three days over some challenging routes, with the start and finish being at the Loskop Dam resort, near Groblersdal.

The event attracted a strong field of 43 vehicles – 29 petrol and 14 diesels – representing 16 different brands, and competition in the various classes was very keen, with many of the crews having competed in numerous Total Economy Runs. The route took competitors over a variety of roads in Mpumalanga, with a 50km route on the first day and 500km loops on Day 2 and 3. This made up a total of 1 050km which had to be traversed at realistic speeds – no time for dawdling – and an observer in each car to see that traffic regulations were obeyed and there was no cheating such as freewheeling.

“As a debutant in this challenging event, we are very satisfied with the way the two Cherys performed,” said Brett Soso, managing director of Chery SA.

“We are delighted with the excellent consumption achieved by our two Chery QQ3s in the Total Economy Run, as this event is widely acknowledged as an outstanding way of comparing the potential fuel economy of various makes and models under identical conditions.
