The car is equipped with an all-aluminum body and has an improved range of 600km compared to the 510km of the current Big Ant.

The Big Ant X Concept features the latest design language, with a front grille design called "pulse grating" and matrix headlights.

The sides of the car are equipped with newly shaped wheels and black trim strips for a sporty look. The rear of the new car is equipped with penetrating taillight clusters and spoilers, to a certain extent, to increase the overall sense of movement.

Chery says the car is equipped with a "Force Sensing Hatch" and that it will be equipped with V2X technology and an autonomous driving assistance system under L4 architecture.

Chery Big Ant X will use a permanent magnet synchronous motor and ternary lithium battery pack, and also equipped with an intelligent electric four-wheel-drive system.
