Re: GW Haval M4

The M2 and M4 are sold as Great Wall models after a brief stint as Haval models.
(Even as Havals, these two used to carry the GW logo)

M4 entered Malaysia. At first the car will be imported from China. Local assembly will start in October. It is powered by 1.5 litre normally-aspirated gasoline engine and available with three trim levels - Standard, Comfort and Premium. Later also includes leather seats, and an around-view camera system.

GW (Haval) M4 in Malaysia

Great Wall M4 – local-assembly of MT and AMT begins

Great Wall Motor assembler Go Auto has announced that CKD production of the Great Wall M4 SUV has begun – the first locally-assembled unit of the compact SUV rolled off its Gurun line last week.

Despite earlier indication that the manual transmission version would be dropped with the advent of CKD production, it looks that the variant is very much part of the local-assembly plan – the CKD M4 MT is mentioned as being “available from now.”

Initial production of the automatic, is set to begin at the end of January, though this will be on a small-scale – full production begins in March next year. The auto version of the M4 is called the AMT, utilsing a six-speed manual transmission with automated clutch operation (the Getrag 6AMT160).

The company said the CKD M4 is due to be officially launched sometime in the first quarter of next year. It added that the Gurun production line is now capable of manufacturing 24,000 units annually, essentially bringing forward the planned expansion to the plant’s existing build capacity of 10,000 units a year.

Re: Haval H1 Red Label (Hong biao)

H1 Red Label? Isn't H1 a smaller crossover, based on Great Wall Voleex C10?
That one will become the H1 Blue Label (Lan biao). Nonetheless, I guess it would have been preferable to keep a unique identity for the M4, perhaps calling it the H4, if they were so intent upon absorbing it into the Haval H-lineup.

Since sales of the GW M2 are down to a trickle (2 in Oct, 4 in Sept, 25 in Aug, and 295 in Jan-Oct.), the M-lineup is likely to be phased out.

Both versions of the Haval H1 have been discontinued in China. The H1 (M4) will continue to be sold in a few export markets.
