Chúfēi wǒmen hěn zǎo líkāi, fǒuzé wǒmen huì cuòguò huǒchē.

Long explanation:

In Mandarin Chinese, '除非...否则...' is a compound conjunction used to indicate a situation or condition, followed by the consequence if that condition is not met. This is conceptually similar to 'unless... otherwise...' in English. When expressed in a sentence, 除非 (chúfēi) initiates the condition, and 否则 (fǒuzé) introduces the outcome or the consequence.
