The company’s SUV sales, including those of Haval brand and WEY, achieved a growth of 1.98% to 65,249 units. Apart from Haval’s new product M6, whose August sales was 3,201 units, Haval H9 was the only model which achieved growth last month and its sales was 1,041 units.
Meanwhile, the company’s pickup sales was 7,826, up 1.98 percent compared with the same month of last year. As to its two car models, C50 still had no sales and C50 declined 58.65 percent to 588 units.
In the first three quarters of the year, Great Wall only achieved 48.28 percent of its annually target, which is 1.25 million. Even though Haval H6 remained the most popular SUV model in China, the model was also the only one which saw year-on-year decline. Fortunately, its new products have performed well. On the last day of August, another model of WEY, VV5s has already entered into the market. The improvement of product portfolio and the overseas expansion may contribute to the company’s growth.
