Great Wall Motor (GWM) displayed all its six brands with various eye-catching new energy models to all media outlets and visitors at the Chengdu Motor Show 2022.
A variety of hybrid electric vehicles have been brought by HAVAL, TANK and WEY to strengthen the hybrid product matrix of GWM, while the other two pure electric brands, which are ORA and SAR, also won massive attention and became the spotlight with their innovative interactive forms and differentiated styles. These reflect GWM’s commitment in implementing the ‘New Energy Strategy’ to be the xEV leader and offering customers the new experience.
HAVAL is positioned as a ‘New Energy SUV Expert’, and all its models displayed in Hall 1 are new energy vehicles, such as H6-HEV, H6-PHEV and H-DOG. Specifically, the new electric hybrid SUV HAVAL H-DOG made its global debut, adopting the 1.5T+DHT-PHEV powertrain with a total torque of 530Nm and total power of 240kW. It propels users to broaden their life boundaries with a cozier driving space. HAVAL has already marched toward the new energy field, and several hybrid SUVs from the brand can cater to diverse user demands for green travel in the global market.
Mu Feng, President of Great Wall Motor, said, “As the largest vehicle segment of GWM, HAVAL will usher in an all-round transformation to new energy. This will be a milestone for HAVAL and the most steady step of GWM toward all-round transformation to new energy, marking that GWM’s new energy strategy has been in full swing. Moreover, GWM has established a development strategy that focuses on multiple technology routes, such as hybrid electric and pure electric, to accelerate the layout in the new energy field. We have also increased R&D investment and will invest a total of CNY 100 billion in new energy and intelligence-based technologies by 2025 to create greener, smarter, and safer products for users. We expect the GWM’s new energy vehicles will account for 80% by 2025.”
At the event, TANK also exhibited two new energy models in Hall 8, namely TANK300 HEV and TANK500 PHEV. These two models can integrate reliable and stable off-road capability with powerful new energy power, allowing customers to get an off-road experience while enjoying green and convenient travel at the same time.
Then, WEY introduced Coffee 01, Latte DHT-PHEV (for the Chinese market) and other high-end intelligent new energy models at the show, thus leading to the new trend of intelligent driving. Particularly, Coffee 01, the first model for WEY’s entry into Europe, has drawn the attention of industry professionals and local users as soon as it was unveiled in the European market.
