It’s not every day when we see a new automobile variant differentiated only from its sibling by its sound system.
But that’s what Jetour Auto Philippines Inc (JAPI), the exclusive distributor of Jetour brand of SUVs and EVs in the Philippines, did when it introduced a stunning Aurora Green Jetour Dashing Symphony to the media last week at the Enderun Tent in Taguig City.
The new Dashing Symphony boasts a kick-ass bespoke JL Audio sound system that gives this new limited-edition variant its name.
The Jetour Dashing Symphony provides an enriched audio response designed to deliver a powerful sound while ensuring a seamless, dynamic, and distortion-free listening experience—all while the driver and occupants also get the full benefits of the power and efficiency of the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and its maximum power output of 156ps and maximum torque of 230Nm.
What levels up the JETOUR Dashing Symphony is the refined sound experience that one can tune in to suit their mood, lifestyle and everyday drives. The SUV is equipped with a 10-inch, 300watts RMS, 4-Ohm JL Audio subwoofer and a 400watts RMS, 4-channel JL Audio power amplifier fitted at the rear passenger area. A JL Audio component speaker system is also installed on each of the four side doors, which includes two woofers and two tweeters. A trunk speaker with an amplifier is also fitted.
Thankfully, the Dashing Symphony isn’t all just about sound. It’s built around advanced features such as the intelligent interactive lighting system, multi-function external side-view mirror, panoramic sunroof, hidden sensing door handles, and the Smart Rubik’s Cube key with keyless entry and start system, and remote start engine. Its Infotainment system features a 12.8-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Dashing Symphony also comes loaded with safety technologies such as an intelligent security system featuring lateral and backward collision warnings and 360-degree panoramic visual parking assist, and an integrated body electronic stability system.
The limited-edition Dashing Symphony in stunning Aurora Green (which turns to black at night) is now available at an SRP of PHP 1,523,000, while the regular Dashing has an SRP of PHP 1,373,000.
The Dashing Symphony is the latest addition to Jetour’s growing roster of stylish, unique, intelligent, spacious, and multi-functional SUVs, and EVs, which includes the X70 Journey, Travel, Sport and Plus, the Dashing SUV, and the Ice Cream EV. JAPI will also soon launch the Dashing Plug-in Hybrid EV (PHEV).
Since the Jetour brand launch in the Philippines in March 2023, JAPI has already sold 1,018 units. By building up brand influence in both the physical and digital spaces and creating awareness even beyond the 28 million Filipinos the Jetour brand has already reached, JAPI confidently reveals that for the next 12 months, it would target a minimum 75% sales growth, and that by the end of 2024, it would have reached its target selling volume of 3,700 Jetour vehicles, well ahead of its closest competitor given a similar 75% sales growth, and becoming one of the top-of-mind automotive brands in the Philippine market.
JAPI projects that of the 3,700 vehicles it targets to sell in 2024, 3,000 of these will be ICE-powered, while 700 will be EVs.
Dealership network expansion also follows sales growth. JAPI projects that by the end of 2024, its Metro Manila dealerships would have grown from the current 5 to 10, while its provincial dealerships from 7 to 14.
Expressing solidarity and eagerness to face the future, riding on JAPI’s theme, “2024: Accelerating Success Together,” are the 22 nationwide dealers and their representatives at the Dealer Commitment Ceremony held on January 31, 2024 also at the Enderun Tent in Taguig City.
