A few new names looking to enter the Indian automotive market are expected to attend the upcoming 2020 Auto Expo. Among them is Chinese carmaker Great Wall Motors (GWM), who has teased its official arrival with a tweet from its new handle: ’Namaste India! All set for great things ahead.’
GWM is expected to bring more than 10 models from its extensive portfolio to the Expo. The Chinese carmaker may showcase some of its EVs too. GWM’s Twitter cover features the ORA R1 electric compact car. It will likely focus on introducing SUVs when entering the market.
The Chinese carmaker is expected to arrive in India with an SUV offering called the Haval H6, probably in 2021. The H6 is a mid-size SUV, which will likely be positioned against the likes of the Tata Harrier and MG Hector. It is available with two turbo-petrol engines in the global market: a 1.5-litre motor(163PS/280Nm) and a 2.0-litre unit(190PS/340Nm), both mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
