Great Wall sales advance behind crossovers, pickup gains
Automotive News China | 2018/2/16

Great Wall Motor Co.¡¯s January deliveries jumped 21 percent to 110,040 from a year earlier behind demand for two crossovers marketed under its newly created premium Wey brand, and higher pickup volume.

Combined sales of the VV5 and VV7 compact crossovers, the first two models introduced under the Wey brand last year, reached 20,289 last month. 

Great Wall¡¯s January pickup deliveries rose 20 percent to 11,023 vehicles. 

By contrast, sales of the company¡¯s Haval-brand crossovers and SUVs dropped 3.8 percent to 78,459. 

Great Wall stopped developing new sedan models several years ago. In January, sales of its only sedan, the Great wall-badged C30 compact, plunged 49 percent to 269. 

Great Wall, based in the north China city of Baoding, is listed in Hong Kong and Shanghai. It is the largest manufacturer of pickups and crossovers in China.

Great Wall disclosed in October it had held talks with BMW AG on establishing a joint venture to assemble Mini vehicles in China. The company hasn¡¯t released additional details about the joint venture project.
