Haval H8 SUV has been launched on the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show in China and at the same time on the Chinese auto market. Price starts at 201.800 yuan and ends at 236.800 yuan, making the H8 not only the largest but also the most expensive vehicle in the Great Wall Haval range.
The Haval H8 will be powered by a brand new 2.0 turbo with 218hp and 324nm, mated to a 6-speed automatic.
The engine is the strongest power plant in the whole Great Wall
empire, and one of the strongest engines ever build by a local Chinese
automaker. However, the Haval H8 will soon be surpassed by the even
bigger and even stronger Haval H9 that will arrive sometime next year.
Very clean design although not overly exciting. The Haval H8 will be
exported as well, to markets as far as Australia, Europe, North Africa,
Russia, and the Middle East. Great Wall recons the Haval H8 will be its
most profitable export product. The current export range consists mostly
of low-spec pickup trucks and cheaper SUV’s with much lower margins.
The H8 will bring in cash, or so Great Wall hopes.
