GWM’s annual record through the end of September is 16,371 sales, which translates to around 22,000 sales this year.

To put this YTD number in context, GWM is in 15th market, just behind Suzuki (16,911) but ahead of Tesla, LDV, Honda, Audi and Renault.

Australia is one of GWM’s largest export markets and its local, factory-supported distributor has a number of new products in the pipeline.

Although we’re running late, we’re still expecting to see some or all of the GWM Tank 300, GWM Tank 500 and GWM Haval Dargo SUVs, the new Ora Good Cat EV and the 260kW petrol V6-powered GWM Shanhai Cannon “Premium” -Pickup to see from 2023.

In addition, CarExpert believes that the brand could have a total of six or seven electrified cars in its range by the end of next year.

GWM announced in August that by 2025, 80 percent of Haval’s global sales would be plug-in hybrids or all-electric, before ending production of internal combustion engine powertrains entirely by 2030.
