Chery absorbs the costs of the safeguard tariff.

Instead of leaving it to customers to deal with a price increase, Chery Auto Philippines announced that it will be shouldering the additional cost resulting from the safeguard duty tariff instead. With that, the prices for all of the brand’s Tiggo-line of crossovers will be retaining their old prices for the entirety of March.

It's a pleasant surprise from Chery

In shouldering the safeguard tariff, Chery is ensuring the accessibility of its models. It might even alleviate consumer hardships during these trying times.

With regards to this, Chery Auto Philippine President Rommel Sytin said: 

We previously announced price increases in compliance with the Department of Trade and Industry's Department Administrative Order (DAO) imposing a provisional safeguard tariff on certain imported cars and light commercial vehicles, but we have decided to absorb the tariff instead of passing it on to the consumer with higher prices.
