The X1, or Chery Beat in some overseas markets, is a crossover version of Chery Riich M1 supermini. Deliveries started on November 14, 2009. After the Riich marque was axed in early 2013, the min SUV was named "Chery X1."

The X1 has an elevated chassis, getting a ground clearance of 180mm vs. 131mm for the M1. Besides the 1.3L engine found on the M1, the X1 is provided with a 80kW 1.5 liter.
