Great Wall's Haval H6 crossover
Great Wall's 2017 sales edge down despite pickup gains, new brand
Automotive News China | 2018/1/12

Great Wall Motor Co., China's largest maker of crossovers and pickups, had its 2017 deliveries slip 0.4 percent from a year earlier to 1,070,161 vehicles despite strong pickup sales and the addition of the Wey premium brand. 

The sales stagnation resulted mainly from weak demand for the company¡¯s top seller, the Haval H6. Last year, deliveries of the compact crossover fell 13 percent year on year to 506,418. 

Because of the H6 decline, total Haval crossover and SUV deliveries fell 9.2 percent to 851,855 vehicles last year. 

Great Wall stopped developing sedans a few years ago. Last year, sales of its only sedan, the Great Wall-badged C30 compact, plunged 61 percent to 12,033. 

But the company¡¯s pickup sales jumped 13 percent to 119,846 in 2017. 

Deliveries of Wey¡¯s first two models, the VV5 and VV7 compact crossovers, totaled 86,427 since going on sale in the first half of 2017. 

Great Wall plans to roll out new Haval and Wey models in 2018. It wants to boost annual sales 8 percent to 1.16 million vehicles in 2018, the company said in a statement. 

Great Wall is headquartered in the north China city of Baoding and listed in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
