We finally can clear up some of the confusion surrounding Haval’s ten trillion new cars. The car you see here was formerly known as the Haval F6. But it has now appeared as the “All New H6”, the successor of the best selling Haval H6 which sells up to 70.000 units a month.

However, a car that succeeds a car would be too simple for Haval. The current H6 therefore will continue to be sold alongside the new one, it will even get a new 1.3 turbocharged engine. The new H6 will be positioned slightly higher than the current car.

February 17, 2017 by Joey Wang

Another new electric car for China: this is the Chery Tiggo 3X EV, complete with some blue in the headlights and a blue line in the grille. Blue is the color of green cars in China.
