Prime Minister of Vanuatu selected a GW Wingle.

On 16 February, Mr. Hon Edward Nipake Natapei, Prime Minister of Vanuatu and Minister of Justice Department purchased a GW Wingle in GWM showroom located in Vila port, the Capital of Vanuatu. This Wingle will be used in the Prime Minster's daily life.

Vanuatu is in the southwest of Pacific, covering an area of only 3947 square kilometers. However, the competition is very severe in the auto market. Currently, 7 Japanese auto brands including Toyota, as well as 4 Korean auto brands including Hyundai already exist in Vanuatu. In 2007, cooperating with the local distributor-Pacific Autronics, GWM entered the market. Today, 58 units GW vehicles were sold here, amongst of which, 19 units are wingle.

GW Wingle was launched in 2007. Thanks to its unique design concept and stylish appearance as well, Wingle becomes the example in the domestic pickup line. It is also popular in the global market. More than 10,000 units Wingle were exported to the world in 2008.

So far, the GW pickup population in the 128 countries and regions is up to 200,000 units. As the largest Chinese pickup exporter, Great Wall Motor Company Limited has maintained the No. 1 export brand in the domestic pickup line for 10 years in a row.

Re: Great Wall Wingle

i admit the nose is less objectionable in that colour since it looks more like a recreational truck rather than a work truck

Ciaoi Luigi, scusa il ritardo nella risposta ma non mi ero accorto che avevi scritto...tra ferie e rientro al lavoro ho avuto poco tempo per navigare da queste parti.
Sarei curioso di scoprire le novità attese per il motor show (sfortunatamente GW manca da un paio d'anni). E non ti nascondo che avrei piacere di conoscere gli importatori per esprimere loro i miei complimenti per l'ottimo lavoro....

a presto

Re: Great Wall Wingle

i think that test wasn't performed well, because i also have a wingle and my wingle have installed all equipment like sensors for seatbelt and other, maybe this is a differences between models which are sold in europe and in australia, also you shold read more topics before post something like this, you have topic great wall in australia where we discuss about it

Re: Great Wall Wingle

Oh cool, I'll have to look for the Great Wall Australia thread/topic then. As to the seat belts I thought they were fixed under warranty in a recall here to the affected models ?

From what I read of the ANCAP testing and the one off faults the saftey rating should really be 3 star I think. Either way it's pretty much on par with most commerical utes/4x4's.

Why do we all rely on safer cars to be the answer, we really should look at better driver training. Most fatal accidents invole someone driving in a unsafe manner or speeding most the time.

Re: Crash-test Great Wall Wingle/Steed FAIL!

2 Stars (16,49 points out of total 37) ANCAP.

Two pillows shoot, but from the terrible blows of the driver and passenger of the front panel is not saved. The reason is that the reel seat belt is not trivial stalled.

:nono: :nono: :nono:
I think the Wingle is based on Isuzu D-Max. The D-Max got 1.5 stars from EuroNCAP, so I guess result of D-Max and result of Wingle are similar.
