This little unpretty is the Haval F6, a new-ish SUV based on the Haval H6, but with an ugly front and messy D-pillar. The Haval F6 is part of the new Haval F-Series, a range of sporty SUVs aimed at a younger audience. At the same time Haval is also launching their Blue Label and Red Label cars, with the blue ones aimed at the young as well. Haval is truly getting mad.
The Great Wall C30 EV has been launched on the Chinese car market, with some blue in the grille because blue = green in China. The C30 EV is an electric car based on the C30 sedan, a car that is possibly more rare than a Ferrari. Price including subsidies starts at 89.800 yuan and ends at 92.800 yuan.
The Haval H2 Blue Label has been launched on the Chengdu Auto Show in China. Haval has a new idea called the ‘Double Strategy’. They will have two versions of each car, a Blue Label and a Red Label. The Blue Label cars will be aimed at the young and hip, whereas the Red Label cars are for normal people.
This is the ultra rare Great Wall Mini SUV, Spotted in China on a parking lot in east Beijing. The good ‘Wall was in a great shape, and that too is a rare thing, as most of these are left to rot by the roadside. This example looked loved and well-taken care for, it was original down to the wheel covers and didn’t show any signs of damage or rust.
Haval sells eight SUVs that are seriously cannibalizing on each other. There are huge similarities in price, size, looks, and engines. And it is not going to stop. There are at least three more SUVs on the way: a sporty compact (could be the new H6), the F2 H2 twin, and now this; the production version of the 2014 Haval Concept Coupe.
It is again a compact SUV, powered by another 180+ hp 2.0 turbocharged engine. It is likely one of the new Haval F-Series vehicles, a range of sporty SUVs aimed at a younger audience, which will add even more cannibalism and confusion to the lineup.
Spy Shots showing a new Haval SUV testing in China. Design is daring and not that easy on the eye. What this car is exactly is yet unsure, but it appears to be the successor of the long running and extremely successful Haval H6. Some also say this car will be part of the new Haval F-Series, a range of sporty SUVs aimed at a younger audience. But where does that leave the H6 Coupe..?
This fine red car is a new compact SUV for Greatwall’s Haval brand. It comes in two kinds: the red car on the first photo is the Haval F2, with a red badge and a large grille. The Haval F2 is the production version of the 2015 Haval R concept.
With all the hype surrounding the Haval SUV brand one could be forgiven to forget that Great Wall Motors is still selling a flock of sedans and hatchbacks under the Great Wall brand (Voleex is long dead). One of these sedans is the Great Wall C30, and it is going electric. Note blue bar in the grille. Blue = green.
Haval brought two concept cars to the Beijing Auto Show, one new and once recycled. We start with the new one, called Haval HB-02. It previews a premium mid-sized SUV that will be positioned somewhere between the Haval H8 and Haval H9.
The HB-02 has a blue Haval badge. That is a thing. Blue badges stand for the standard non-sporty cars, while red badges stand for the sporty ones. So far Haval has only used this distinction on concept cars.
The Haval H9 SUV will finally get the promised twin-turbocharged V6 engine, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in May. There will be two variants: a low pressure version with 295hp and 480nm, and an absolute monstrous high pressure version with 310hp and… 650nm! And that makes it the torquiest passenger car engine ever manufactured in China. It will be mated to an eight-speed automatic, sending power to all four wheels.
Haval will also launch a high-pressure version of the current 2.0 turbo, with an output of 241hp and 350nm. The current ‘low pressure’ 2.0 turbo has 214hp and 324nm. The new high-pressure 2.0 turbo is mated to the eight-speed automatic. Last but not least, Haval is going to launch a diesel, a 2.0 turbo with 187hp and 420nm, mated again to the eight-speed auto. This engine is mainly aimed at export markets.
