Great Wall Motors Philippines expands its lineup with the introduction of its first fully-electric vehicle for the Philippine market recently under the distributorship of Luxuriant Automotive Group, Inc. 

“GWM’s goal for the Philippine market has been to provide automotive products that will respond to the needs and wants of every Filipino. So far, I believe we are successful in doing so,” said Fritz Gerald De Ocampo, product planning manager of GWM Philippines.

Launched during a recent local motor show are the ORA 03, the WEY GaoSan PHEV, Haval MengLong PHEV, and Haval M6. The company is also showcasing the Tank 300 off-roader SUV which it launched a few months ago and has easily become one of its most in-demand models.

The ORA 03 is GWM’s newest offering for the Philippine market, and also the first fully-electric vehicle in its lineup. Available in two variants—the ORA 03 400, and ORA 03 500–it is the essence of a statement car with its fashionable, iconic, and eye-catching design. Introductory starting price is just P1,288,000 for the 400 variant while the top-of-the-line 500 variant is at P1,778,000.

Also previewed are the upcoming plug-in hybrid electric vehicles – the WEY GaoShan luxury MPV and Haval MengLong compact SUV. 

Both these models are powered by 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engines paired to an electric motor. They  feature GWM’s Hybrid Intelligent 4WD or Hi4 technology, the world’s first intelligent control four-wheel drive hybrid technology. 

A compact SUV for the price of a subcompact sedan is the GWM Haval M6 which will be available in the coming months. This compact SUV will be GWM’s entry-level SUV for the Philippine market.

Also showcased is the brand’s new Tank 300, a premium off-roader SUV which was introduced to the market a few months ago with its turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine that pumps out 217 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque, mated to a German ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. It is available for Php 2,678,000.
