Riich (Chinese: 瑞麒; pinyin: Ruìqí) was an upmarket marque of the Chinese automaker Chery. Its models included a microvan, large sedans (the G5 and slightly bigger G6) and supermini Riich M series, including a five-door hatchback, a small sedan and a five-door wagon. The marque was launched in March 2009.[1] The brand experienced poor sales and in September 2012 Chery announced that it would be discontinued.[2] Sales of Riich vehicles ended in April 2013.

Previously Chery used the "Riich" name for a model of van (the Chery Riich) prior to the creation of the Riich sub-brand.

Products[edit]

The first Riich product to enter production was the G6,[when?] a medium-to-high end sedan solely developed by Chery and offered with a 3.0-litre V6 engine or a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine.[1][3]

The Riich X1 mini SUV was launched in November 2009,[4][5] and the G5 mid-size sedan in December 2009.[6]
