Besides, the sales of the Wuling Asta, the first Wuling-branded global strategic SUV, stood at 19,073 units in Dec., jumping 22% from the previous month. Hitting the market in last Sept., the SUV model recorded cumulative sales of 54,563 units in 2021.

SGMW said its annual export volume hit record highs in 2021 despite such headwinds as the coronavirus pandemic and the increase in sea freight. The company exported a total of 145,550 complete vehicles and knock down kit(s) last year, an 88% leap year-on-year.

Up until now, SGMW's footprints have expanded to 40 countries in Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and other regions.
