Re: Great Wall Peri

Great photos of the 4x4 peri. Just checked with the Factory, they mention it can be released during 2009.
The 4 Peris i ordered arrived 1 week ago, just sold the first one. The car looks real good.

Re: Great Wall Peri

Unfortunately yes, when people look at Chinese cars like this they immediately think that this type of car is the epitome of Chinese auto industry, which isn't completely wrong. There are Chinese companies out there willing to do their own works but because of reputation created by their peers their driving roads become much more bumpier.

Companies like SAIC want to develop their own stuff either indigenous or based on Rover expertise. Chery besmirched their early reputation with GM Daewoo but now trying to wash that away with the 2009 models (and the beautiful and elegant A3). Geely is doing their own restructuring but we still need to see how they will play it out with their new branches and the new FC series. BYD is a weirdo that cannot be ignored, although their technology sounds and looks pretty impressive but their car design is heavily "inspired" F3 and F6 (btw BYD is releasing a dual mode version of F6 next year) and F0, the e6 is somewhat a slow and gradual departure from that regular inspiration.

Re: Great Wall Peri

unfortunately i dont have a chance to drive or test most of chinese cars but they have created an image with copying western cars, brands and also logos too...these uncopy models like peri is going to show that chinese manufacturers are trying to have developments in this industry...

very good, did you have any other expiriences? have you try to drive it, what do you think about it?

a news published today:
MILAN, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Great Wall Motor Co Ltd (2333.HK) said a Chinese court has dismissed in a final ruling a claim by Italy’s Fiat (FIA.MI) alleging infringement of a Fiat patent by the Chinese car maker.

The Hebei Province People’s High Court dismissed on Dec. 29 a Fiat appeal alleging that Great Wall’s GWPeri compact car was an infringement of its patent, upholding a July ruling by the Shijiazhuang Intermediate People’s Court, Great Wall said in a statement on Monday.

“The judgment is final and conclusive and no further appeal may be lodged on the subject dispute in the PRC (People’s Republic of China),” it said.

Fiat declined to comment.

In July an Italian court banned Great Wall from selling the GWPeri compact car in the European Union, saying the car too closely resembled Fiat’s Panda.

In Monday’s statement Great Wall said a further announcement would be made on developments in the dispute proceedings in Italy. (Reporting by Danilo Masoni; Editing by Greg Mahlich)

Uruguay Police ordered 8 units GWPERI.

The GWPERI won a tender of 8 units ordered by Uruguayan Local Police. It is reported that this competitive tender is intense. Thanks to its fashionable appearance as well as the superior performance, the Uruguayan Local Police station chose the GWPERI finally.

Nimansur is the distributor of GWM in Uruguay who mainly sells the Great Wall Sailor Pickup. Since the start of the co-operation in 2006,the sales volume increased year by year, achieving the annual sales volume of 173 units in 2008.This time GWPERI appears on the street of Uruguay as Police car ,not only raise the image GWM in foreign markets ,but also widen the influence of the brand GWM in Uruguay.

Well the car is good.
A silent engine, with good interiors, the quality of plastics its not bad.
I sold 3 in less than one month, very good for a tiny market!
Bigger problem is the back seats are a bit tiny.
Ordered 12 units for 2009.

Re: Great Wall Peri

KiwiGuy, have you seen the door and the internal? :)

BTW the Peri is an interesting mix of Fiat panda and other small cars (honda?)

Re: Great Wall Peri

Funnily enough, no I haven't. I agree that the Peri is an interesting mix of other cars, but I think the front resembles Renault Clio or other model somewhat. Do you want pics of interior?

Fiat Panda:


GWM Peri:


GWM Peri IS almost 80% copy of Fiat Panda, there is no dubt. But, in Italy a lot of people say the front and the back of Peri are better... ;)

Same door line, same interior, same roof barrel, same general dimension. They (GWM) can do something better... :thumb:

Re: Great Wall Peri

i can't belive that almost 2 year after peri was presented people are still comment about that, car is simmlar to panda, first of all peri have different front light and whole frontal of the car is different, the same is the back of the car, to me look more like nissan note...not fiat, interior is and door panels are the same like in panda, but gwm already did some changes and it's a big chance that they will install the interior from peri suv which is different

i drive both models, the peri and panda...and by my opinion peri goes better, simply it's more comfortable and in serial equpment have stronger engine, also the design look better to me
