Chinese automaker all set to come in Indian Market
Chinese automaker into the market via a post on its India Twitter page. We will showcase its variety of cars at the 2020 Auto Expo and already know that the firm is currently looking for a location to set up its facility.
For the India run of the GWM, we assume that the Haval brand are the focus. The Provider’s page shows the H6, along with the Ora R1 and the flagship. The H9 is closest to SUVs like the Fortuner and Endeavour. In its home market, it is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol motor good for 217PS and 324 Nm. This pairs using a ZF-sourced eight-speed auto plus a four-wheel-drive system with low range.
The Haval H6 is a monster, similarly proportioned to the MG Hector. Like that SUV, this too is quite tech-heavy and includes a fully digital instrument cluster, dual-zone air-conditioning, a suite of driver assistance systems, panoramic sunroof and LED lighting, among other things. The H6 includes two engines in China. The first of them is a 1.5-litre unit with 163PS and 280Nm. The other is a 2.0-litre unit with 190PS and 340Nm. Both come with a DCT.
The Ora R1 is the proposition. In the Chinese market, prices for the R1 beginning at RMB 59,800 or just over Rs 6 lakh after government subsidies. It is going to be the EV available, if launched here. The specs are encouraging, the R1 uses a range of over 300 kmph and a 35 kWh battery.
Great Wall Motor is an important player in the automobile market. It is the biggest seller of SUVs and pickup trucks in that country and sells about 10 vehicles a year. The company was established in 1984, and has been one of the few independently owned Chinese car firms to be listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The GWM headquarters are located in Baoding, Hebei, China. Since 1998, when its Steed pick-up became the bestseller in its segment, it sells more than 1 lakh units in the domestic market alone, the company has grown quite fast.
