Recently, Great Wall Motors announced several new SUVs under its Haval brand, including the 2024 Haval Big Dog, the re-branded H5, and the third-generation Haval H6. Its ambition is obvious that it wants to stay competitive in today’s competitive Chinese auto market. In June this year, the sales volume of Haval H6 was only 14,267 units, a year-on-year decrease of 40.08%. Will Haval Raptor be able to further expand Great Wall Motors’ SUV market share?
