My dad sells concrete products and does business in a 2002 Toyota Caldina station wagon. He previously drove a brand new 2005 Mazda Bounty Turbo with only 2WD (dangerous when wet and fun when dry. Could do skids at 20km/h) and a slelection of other utes. I tried to talk him into buting one and it nearly succeeded. Still, I think V240 is a good ute for price because it is just like a Holden Colorado/Isuzu D-Max. Same safety rating, similar interior etc.
Most builders, tradesmen and farmers pick the Toyota Hilux even though baseline models are on the wrong side of $45k.

Looks like the Hover H3 will be sold in NZ as the X240. The article mentions 274 units sold in July but didn't specify if that is Aus or NZ or both.

I don't have enough post count to post URLs so include w w w.

I suspect they will sell the X240 in both countries, considering that Great Wall models are the same both in New Zealand and Australia.
I heard that the small car would be the Florid. Any news on that?

You Kiwi's get the warning triangle? See here the AUSSIE section:-

Observation; the lights on the rear bumper of the V240 are functional rear fogs; not to be rewired by DIY'ers as 'extra' brake lights, in AUS and NZ - a defect to do so as you then have two quite distinct levels of brake-light brightness! For use in hideous weather conditions only, in Germany enforced for 50m< or less visibility only, in GB 100m<


The V220 ute in AUS also has rear fogs complete with P21watt bulbs BUT NO activating switch!

Location is both sides, lower RED lamp compartment of the body-mount taillight assembly, that also combines a red reflex reflector function. Top red compartment of these taillight assemblies is the regular TAIL/STOP function.

A switch to legally enable operation of the V220 rear fogs is easily sourced if needed.

I'd bet a move to standardise the lamp function down the track in any case. NSW is pushing to mandate the function here in AUS, with a police enforcement program.

X240 now sold in New Zealand. Prices I think will be similar to the ones in Australia. Now we wait for either the Florid or the Peri.

There are six dealerships nationwide. There are three in the North Island and three in the South Island. The sales are better than expected but I don't know anyone who owns one so I cannot really tell you.

I went out into town today and I thought I would visit the local Great Wall dealership which is run by a Mitsubishi dealership called Houston Motors. Here's some pictures I took with my brand new camera.
