In April, JAC's first family MPV, the Refine 3 hit the market, enriching its product lineup further. As planned, JAC will launch three MPV models within this year, the AT version of the Refine R3, the 2018 Refine M5 and the new-gen Sunray.
When it comes to PV SUV market, JAC is expected to release the hybrid versions of the Refine S5 and the Refine S7, as well as the Refine S3 equipped with new powertrain this year. Currently, JAC's sales failure in SUV was the major factor that dragged JAC's whole sales down.
