(BUSINESS WIRE)-- JAC (Shanghai Stock Exchange 600418) JAC remains the industry’s sales champion, having sold 300,000 S3s during the last 20 months. The S3 has set several records since its launch, from achieving a breakthrough of 10,000 units in its first month, to overtaking sales of other compact SUVs in the global market within three months. With current average sales of 15,000 units a month, the S3 has cemented its position as the SUV industry’s sales champion.
Young drivers have been particularly attracted to the S3, with its core characteristics ”Easy To Buy, Easy To Drive, Easy To Own” having a widespread appeal. Tailoring their designs to young customers’ demands for a fashionable appearance, enhanced driving experience and intelligent specifications, JAC released the S3II in September 2015. This new model maintains the original S3’s stylish interior, while making 19 improvements. The S3 II has been equipped with a rear view system, GPS/Dual mode positioning and navigation system and GSI driving shift reminder, designed to improve the SUV’s security functions. These improvements have only enhanced the S3’s popularity, and led to what the industry is calling a ”sales miracle”.
S3 drivers are able to enjoy a full suite of features that make driving a pleasure. It boasts a high-performance 4GB 1.5L VVT engine, which is powerful, while also being exceptionally economical. Likewise, the S3’s gearbox increases power output, while reducing fuel consumption, saving on fuel costs and carbon emissions simultaneously. Fitted with front Mac-Pherson suspension the S3 has a highly responsive and smooth driving experience, while its eccentric type front absorber reduces horizontal force. The S3 also has a number of safety features that help to protect drivers and avert accidents. Its ESP regulates torque and distributes braking force independently, helping to maximize driver control when slowing down. The S3 is fitted with disc brakes, with enhanced ventilation and anti-heat features, giving the car greater breaking ability. It has six airbags and electronic pre-tightening seatbelts, while uniquely among its competitors the S3’s body and hinges are formed from galvanized and high-intensity steel, to better protect riders in case of an accident.
Easy To Buy, Easy To Drive, Easy To Own
The S3’s affordable price and low fuel consumption make it highly economical, while its advanced features and intelligent specifications promise an enhanced driving experience. The S3 is currently being adapted for different markets globally, and is already being sold in places such as Egypt, the UAE and Chile, among others. In the Egyptian market the S3 has won the praise of customers, having sold 100 units there in its first 30 days.
