China’s largest SUV maker Great Wall Motors (GWM) will launch a Brazil-made model in the first quarter of 2023.

GWM made the announcement last week when it unveiled the Haval H6 PHEV 4WD in Rio, China Daily reported.

The model is made at the Iracemapolis plant, which completed its technological upgrading after GWM acquired it from Daimler last year.

The Haval H6 PHEV 4WD has been specially designed and tuned by the carmaker’s R&D team based on Brazilian road conditions, local users’ travel habits and charging network.

It has a range of 170 kilometres in the electric mode, the furthest of all plug-in hybrids available in the Brazilian market. 

GWM said more electrified models are scheduled to follow the Haval H6 PHEV 4WD, adding that Brazil will be a landmark and regional hub for the company to further expand its presence in other Latin American markets.

“GWM will offer new energy vehicles for users with innovative products and new technologies, bringing them clean and intelligent mobility experiences,” said Yang Weiqi, president of GWM Brazil.
