International Cars & Motor Limited (ICML) is testing Chery Easter Cross – the Chinese MPV in India. This is surprising and at the same time intriguing considering that we have had indications of Chery (a Chinese Automobile Company) coming to India.
Many months back ICML was caught testing Tiggo SUV and QQ Mini Car and A1 Hatch on the Indian terrains, but those cars have not made it to India, yet!
The latest scoop from their stables is this 7-Seater Right Hand Drive MPV Easter which was spotted near Jaisalmer by an IndianAutosBlog reader. The Chinese version of this car is powered by a 2.0-Litre Petrol engine which doesn’t look like a worthy candidate for India. So, possibility is that, this test mule might have been powered by ICML’s 2.0-Litre 120 BHP CRD-Fi diesel engine.
The Easter Cross MPV comes with beige interior with faux wood finishing on the dashboard and steering, and a centrally-mounted instrument cluster.
But, if this MPV is meant for the Indian market, everyone’s going to have a tough time, including ICML. To increase the portfolio in India, ICML needs to launch more vehicles and set up a more efficient sales-and-service network countrywide.
