Great Wall Motor’s auto sales rise YoY for five straight months
Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Great Wall Motor (GWM) had gained year-on-year growth in both monthly auto sales and year-to-date sales for five consecutive months as of October, 2019.
The Chinese biggest SUV and pickup manufacturer said its Oct. sales climbed 4.48% from a year ago to 115,015 units, which made this year’s cumulative sales total 839,128 units (+6.66%).
With its overseas market expanding, GWM exported 55,117 vehicles between January and October, a year-on-year jump of 37.96%. Of that, the Oct. export volume also rose 10.9% to 4,363 units.
The mainstay SUV brand Haval saw its Oct. sales volume edge up 1.74% year over year, versus the 22.14% growth in Sept. volume. The smaller increase partly resulted from the larger decrease in the sales of the Haval H2 and the Haval H4. Besides, the Haval F5, which hit the market in late September of 2018, was for the first time available for calculation of sales growth, while it failed to outsell the prior-year period, which partially led to the weaker growth as well.
It is worth noting that the Oct. sales of the hottest-selling Haval H6 only slid 1.24%, 9.43 percentage points less than that of September.
The popular domestic SUV brand rolled out three new models of F series on November 6—the 2020 F5, the 2020 F7 and the F7x Performance, expecting a better sales performance in the future.
WEY, a SUV brand embodying GWM's ambition to move upscale, sold 10,364 vehicles (-4.78%) in October. On October 22, the brand saw its 300,000th vehicle come off the production line at GWM's Xushui plant, a milestone for China's indigenous premium brands.
Pickup sales volume amounted to 16,000 units, including 10,980 Wingle pickups and 5,020 P series pickups. Notably, the PV and CV models of the P series pickup just went on sale in September and October, helping GWM further consolidate its championship in China's pickup market.
Last month, the combine sales of the ORA R1 and iQ EVs reached 1,774 units. For the first ten months of 2019, the young NEV brand had sold 33,960 vehicles in total (photo source: Great Wall Motor).
