Chery PH continues to absorb the additional import tax. 

Early this year, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) imposed safeguard taxes on all imported vehicles as a way to support local manufacturers. This means that most car brands in the country had adjusted the prices of their models following the additional import taxes.

Chery Auto Philippines, however, still managed to keep the prices of its model lineup free from the safeguard tax. The Chinese carmaker said that it will absorb the additional import tax so that the prices of its models with be maintained until the end of April this year.
