Great Wall Motor Co all set to enter India

What if the Chinese car Premier Rio did not succeed, there are more Chinese offerings that have made India one of their prominent markets. The Chevrolet Sail UVA is the latest example. Now another car maker Great Wall Motor Co (GWM) is soon to enter India with its cars. The reports suggest that the car maker is aggressively looking for a location to set up its plant and as soon as it is finalized, it will be starting its operations in the country. It is expected that the Chinese car maker will be launching hatchbacks including Great Wall C20R, Great Wall C10 sedans Great Wall C50 and Great Wall C30 and SUVs Haval H6, Haval H5 and Haval M4. Out of these SUVs the Haval M4 looks almost like the new generation Ford Ecosport.

Thus it can be easily said that where the domestic car demand is barely increasing due to the high interest rates and other factors, the car maker foresee a bright future ahead.

With plans to place a car in the hatchback, sedan and SUV segment, GWM hopes to have excellent response in India.
