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.

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..?

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.

A rare look at the Haval Concept R, seen on a parking lot near the exhibition hall of the Guangzhou Auto Show where it will be on display from Friday onward. The Haval Concept R is not new, it debuted in Shanghai in April, but it is very special to see a one-off concept out in the open like this, unguarded and away from the spot lights.
