Qoros 3 is the first automobile from the Chinese manufacturer Qoros Auto, jointly (50%–50%) owned by Kenon Holdings and China's Chery Automobile Company. The four-door sedan was formally announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013. The Qoros 3 commenced sales in China and Slovakia towards the end of 2013, and deliveries started in China in January 2014. A hatchback version made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014. A third derivative, the 3 City SUV, was launched in November 2014.
