28 November 2022

On November 23, at Museu do Amanhã in Rio, GWM launched its brand and premiered its HAVAL H6 PHEV 4WD. GWM Brazil will offer cleaner and smarter solutions, as a pioneer in the field of New Energy Vehicles in the rapidly growing Latin American market.

Symbolized by the phrase “  Tomorrow is ON  ”, GWM presented its brand vision, smart electric technology and business plan to hundreds of media and investors during the event.GWM 's 1st  HAVAL H6 PHEV 4WD rolled out of the Iracemápolis plant. This former Daimler Group plant completed its technological upgrade earlier this year. The HAVAL H6 PHEV 4WD also uses an updated HAVAL logo, showing off its latest EV technology and image. The model was specially designed and adapted by GWM's R&D team based on local road conditions, users' travel habits and modern charging network. The model has a great autonomy of 170 km, a maximum torque of 762 Nm and a maximum power of 289 kW, thanks to the DHT technology developed independently by GWM under the LEMON platform (acronym of "  Lightweight Electrification, Multi-purpose, Omni-protection, and Networking », i.e.: light, multipurpose, omniprotection and network electrification).

“HAVAL H6 PHEV's long battery life is remarkable, freeing us from the need for frequent charging. During the test drive, the model was able to accelerate quickly with strong power. This model also includes voice commands and app-based remote controls. These experiences are innovative and excellent,” a local media reporter said after the test drive.

Delivery of HAVAL H6 PHEV 4WD is expected to start in Brazil in the first quarter of next year, along with other electrified models. Brazil will be a historical and regional center for GWM, which will expand its network of new energy vehicles in other Latin American markets.

Earlier this year, GWM officially took over the former Iracemápolis plant from Daimler and announced that it would carry out a smart and digital transformation of the plant. In July this year, when Brazilian Vice President Hamilton Mourão visited the plant, he recognized GWM's advanced technology in the areas of intelligence and new energy.

“GWM will provide users with new energy vehicles with innovative products and new technologies. Users will benefit from clean and smart mobility experiences,” said Yang Weiqi, President of GWM Brazil, during the brand launch conference.
