Default Great Wall Motor Hungry like the wolf

Great Wall Motor

Hungry like the wolf
May 8th 2008 | BAODING CITY

From The Economist print edition

A small Chinese carmaker with ambitious plans


WITH a model line-up that includes the Wingle, Sailor and Socool, and a corporate action plan to “attack the consciousness like a wolf while sensing danger like a rabbit”, it is easy to poke fun at Great Wall Motor, based in Hebei Province, south of Beijing. The carmaker's output of 108,000 vehicles in 2007 is puny by global standards—about half what Toyota builds in a week. Yet there is nothing modest about Great Wall's ambition.

Its most popular models—the Hover, China's bestselling sport-utility vehicle, and the Deer, a small pick-up—have been supplemented by 14 new vehicles, with two more to follow this year. The firm also plans to introduce an electric car, the Gwkulla. Great Wall recently opened a third state-of-the-art factory which will allow it to increase volumes fivefold. It is already China's second-largest vehicle exporter (after Chery), shipping nearly half its output to over 80 countries. It builds cars with a licensee in Iran and opened a factory in Ukraine last year.

Sales of 7.6 billion yuan ($1 billion) in 2007 and profits of 937m yuan were enough to make Great Wall the most valuable listed carmaker in China, despite having much lower output volumes than its main domestic rivals. It says it will invest a further 10 billion yuan by the end of 2010, by which time it hopes for sales of 100 billion yuan.

How the company is financing this expansion is not entirely clear. In 2003 it raised HK$1.7 billion ($218m) in a Hong Kong listing, but a planned offering to raise a further $138m, scheduled for this month, has been delayed. Great Wall says it has become more dependent on bank borrowing. The sympathetic eye of the central government and recent visits from high-ranking politburo members may have smoothed the way.

Great Wall's sights are now set on Europe and America. The launch model for Europe will be the Gwperi, a fairly blatant knock-off of the Fiat Panda, with a price tag of around €4,000 ($6,200). Fiat, which recently signed a joint-venture deal with Chery, will doubtless examine the Gwperi carefully, looking for evidence of intellectual-property theft. And meeting emissions and safety standards will be no picnic. But Great Wall, with its slogan “improving little by little every day”, seems undaunted.

Great Wall Motor SUVs made it to Manila two years ago. The dealership here rebadged it as Nexus but something really went wrong and the dealership closed after a year. I've seen the Hover here in person and it looks good. The dealership who brought the GWM SUVs here even had plans of bringin in Jinbei vans but it didn't push thru.

So Great Wall pulled out of the Philippines ?

Too many Chinese brand cars in foreign countries may not always be a good thing, the bad ones can ruin the reputation of Chinese cars as a whole even the good, honest ones really deliver quality products.
