The Haval H6 HEV hybrid crossover made its global debut at the Bangkok International Motor Show in March and is bound to be offered in as much as 60 countries around the world.
Haval currently owns an auto assembly plant in Rayong province, having purchased the facility from General Motors (GM) that decided to withdraw from the Thai market several years ago.The Chinese brand, one of five owned by Great Wall Motors (GWM), had just launched its marketing drive in Thailand, and will start selling vehicles during the second half of this year along with the ORA electric car brand.
In Thailand the H6 HEV will be officially launched in June and will compete against fellow Chinese automaker MG (HS PHEV) as well as market leaders like Honda (CR-V) and Mazda (CX-5).
Exterior highlights include a large front grille, LED headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels with 225/55 tires, LED tail light extending from left to right and power tailgate.
Inside, we were surprised by the champagne gold/piano black trim with leather and soft-touch surfaces, that gives the H6 hybrid a classy interior.
There is a digital dashboard as well as a wide touchscreen on the center console, along with a luxurious gearshift dial that makes you think Jaguar/Land Rover.
There is a total of four USB ports in the cabin (2 in front, 2 at the rear), along with a 12-volt outlet.
It also comes with several unique features including Integration Auto Parking, Auto Reversing Assistant and Wisdom Dodge System.
