I really like the Hover too. If they have a 3rd row option it would be awesome. Of course I can't get one in the US yet but I'm hoping it'll be soon.

China's Great Wall Motor sees higher exports, Shanghai listing


2008-03-13 16:42:22


BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) -- Great Wall Motor Co., China's largest producer of pick-up trucks, expects to sell 55.7 percent more vehicles abroad this year as it looks to the European and North American markets.

Exports would reach about 80,000 units this year, up from 51,394 in 2007, said company chairman Wei Jianjun.

"We will improve the quality of our products, instead of blindly seeking higher sales," he said.

Sales would not be affected by the global economic slowdown as Great Wall vehicles, which were 30 percent to 50 percent cheaper than foreign models, were "obviously competitive," he said.

The company, based in the northern province of Hebei, saw Europe and North America as becoming its major overseas markets over the next five years, he said.

Great Wall had marketing networks in 81 countries as of the end of last year. Major overseas markets included the Middle East, Russia, Africa and Southeast Asia. It also runs assembly plants in Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Wang said that his company, already listed in Hong Kong, planned an initial public offering of A shares in Shanghai in May to fund its expansion. The company said last year that it would issue up to 121.7 million yuan-denominated A shares, representing 10 percent of its enlarged share capital.

Great Wall is one of the few Chinese car makers that produce its own models rather than manufacturing foreign brands under license. Its 2007 sales soared 46.5 percent year-on-year to 107,800 vehicles.

Great Wall to launch four new models in 2008.

Quote:
March 18, 2008 – China’s largest pick-up truck maker Great Wall plans to launch four car models and sell 200,000 vehicles in Chinese market this year, local newspaper Beijing Morning Post reported today.

The automaker plans to launch a sedan model Peri and a MPV model Cowry in March and will later launch a five-door compact sedan Florid and a small MPV model Cool Bear in home market before they are launched in overseas market this year.

The Peri model, equipped with GW413EF 1.3L engine and Bosche's latest ABS and EBD systems, has also passed European Union standard safety test, according to a senior company official.

Priced between 40,000 and 50,000 Yuan ($5356 - $6695), the model will be exported after it is launched at domestic markets. Great Wall said it has sales networks or partnership dealers in more than 70 countries.

Last year Italian automaker Fiat has initiated legal proceedings against Great Wall, claiming Peri is a copy of its Panda. Great Wall said that it spent three years developing its first car and owns its intellectual property rights.

The company expects to sell 80,000 Peri vehicles by the end of 2008.

Great Wall has just begun marketing in Russia of GWPeri and Cowry, two models of new design with a good quality-price ratio. The former is a city car of five doors while the Cowry is a medium-sized people carrier.

The GWPeri (also known as just Peri) has been one of the most problematic vehicles in recent times for his strong resemblance to the Fiat Panda. Despite the signing Italian denounced Great Wall by shamelessly copying its utility, it appears that they have not wanted to stop losing the opportunity to market it. It has an engine 1.3i 16v of 87 hp and is priced at 7,975 € to change.

For its part the Cowry has a two-litre engine 143 hp power, which is capable of reaching the 170 km / h. In addition to a fully equipped, has enough space for seven passengers. Its suggested retail price change is € 16,037, fairly competitive taking into account that measures 4.57 meters.

Quote:
First Auto Company, distributor of Great Wall Motors (GWM) located in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), has dedicated to strive for the government tender and achieved a great success. In a new round of purchase for government tender, First Auto Company won it with an overwhelming advantage.
At present, the first batch of 50 police vehicles has already been delivered to the local government. Thanks to the satisfactory performance, they plan to select GWM products as the police vehicles once again and the second order for 50 units is already under the negotiation.
