June 2, 2008 - Great Wall Motor will launch nationwide this month the new edition of its Hover CUV (crossover utility vehicle) equipped with the Mitsubishi 2.4L SOHC 4G64 engine. The all-new Hover was unveiled at the 2008 Beijing auto show in April..................

A "crossover" ?
No, I don't think that this full frame vehicle can be classified as a crossover, Gasgoo.
As Micodelija so superbly illustrates in pictures, this is a rugged vehicle capable of competing with the best of off-road vehicles.
Crossovers are fragile unibody vehicles which rarely venture beyond the paved road.
Maybe the CUV stands for Cannonball Utility Vehicle.

CITY-C
UTILITY-U
VEHICLE-V

maybe this sound stupid CUV, but hover is really a car which you will always see in the town, but also goes very well on the off road,better than many other suv's

The new car is 6.9 meters long, 0.2 meters longer than the old version, and has a seating capacity of eight to nine people. It is sold at 298,000 yuan. It has new and advanced interior decorations like a S-shape cut in the ceiling and two separate bar counters as well as starring partition and shining floor.

Being the first Chinese limousine car model, Hover Pi saw sales of 247 units in 2007 and has been exported to Japan, South Korea, France, Italy, Russia, South Africa, etc.

The Chinese limousine market is now occupied by foreign brands like Lincoln, Rolls-Royce and Cadillac. The entry of Hover Pi offers customers one more option with lower price. The sound aftersales service network of the Hebei-based company makes the car model more competitive.

Great Wall Hover diesel model July sales up 32%

August 27, 2008


Shanghai, August 27 (Gasgoo.com) Great Wall Motor said the diesel edition of Great Wall Hover gained sales increase by 32% year on year in July, a reversal from the straight drop in the first half as diesel supply shortage gradually eased up, xinhua.net reported today.

The Hover diesel model, the best-selling SUV in Chinese market, suffered sales loss due to diesel supply shortage in some areas for the first six months this year. Though Great Wall Motor tried to launch better diesel models, the negative consequence brought by diesel shortage didn’t change, sources said.

As diesel supply has recovered to normal and Hover July sales grew, sales slump for the first half will not be repeated, Great Wall market executive said.

Great Wall Motor rolled out its diesel-powered Hover in 2006, which gained significant market share after going on sale. In 2007, The Hover diesel edition saw sales grow by 9% year on year, taking 50% of the mid-level SUV market in China.

Great Wall Motor further launched two Hover models this year: a 2.8TCI Hover diesel car with better performance and a 2.5 TCI diesel Hover which has met the nation’s latest emission standards.

Great Wall Motor recalls 17,916 Hover CUVs

November 25, 2008 - Great Wall Motor, China's greatest maker of SUVs and pickups, has decided to recall 17,916 Hover CUVs (crossover utility vehicles) starting November 25 to fix the defects of their steering gears, said xinhuanet.com today. These vehicles were made by Great Wall Motor between April 1, 2005 and July 28, 2006.

According to the recall report submitted by Great Wall Motor to China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ), some of these Hover CUVs made during that period have oil leakage from their steering gears and oil blockage in the left cavity, which leads to abnormal oil pressure of the power booster and difficult steering for bend turning. This may cause safety hazards when the vehicle is taking the corners.

Great Wall Motor has promised to check and replace the steering gears of all the recalled Hover CUVs for free to remove any possible safety hazards. The company will ask its Hover CUV customers to deliver their cars to the nearby repair shops of Great Wall Motor for the steering gear replacement.

Great Wall Hover CUV customers can also call the hotline of the quality watchdog GAQSIQ or visit its website for more information on the Hover CUV recall.

The Great Wall Hover CUV is sold in several countries. It was the first Chinese car to be exported in large quantities to Western Europe in 2006, when 30,000 Hovers were shipped to Italy. The Hover CUVs are also widely used by China's public facilities for highway and electricity supervisions.
