By Business Wire News


Chinese auto brand JAC (Shanghai Stock Exchange: 600418) has announced it launched the new S2 model SUV in Chile in June and will launch it in Peru, Colombia and Uruguay during July. The company hopes to see the S2 repeat the popularity of its previous model, the S3, which achieved high sales figures across South America last year. The S2 was launched in China last August, and has become the new star SUV in that market, with monthly sales of over 7,000 units.

JAC plans to continue expanding its international sales of the S2, which began in Egypt in March. Over the last few months the company has been preparing and adapting the S2 for its South American launch, and has recently received an admission certificate from the Chilean government.

S2 Features

S2 drivers will be able to enjoy a whole suite of features that enhance the driving experience. The S2’s stylish and sporty exterior makes it a pleasure to be seen in. It boasts a powerful and highly economical 1.5VVT engine that enhances performance, while saving on fuel consumption and reducing emissions and noise. The S2 also has a range of inbuilt safety features to help ensure safety on the road and minimize damage in a collision. It has a high-intensity body, built using ultra high-strength steel, while the ESP, advanced BOSCH ABS and four-wheel ventilated disk brakes give the driver maximum control during braking.

Chasing the S3’s Record

JAC plans to repeat the ‘sales miracle’ of its previous model, the S3, which has achieved over 300,000 global sales since its launch nearly two years ago. The S3 broke numerous SUV industry records, including a breakthrough of 10,000 sales in its first month, and becoming the best-selling SUV internationally within its first three months. JAC launched the S3 in Chile last year, where it quickly became the best-selling SUV on the market, with average sales of 100 units a month. The new S2 is aimed at the same young, tech-savvy and style-conscious drivers who have been so attracted to the S3.
