In 2013, Great Wall Motors (GWM), China’s biggest SUV and pickup manufacturer, celebrated the delivery of its one millionth SUV in Beijing since being founded in 2002. In the same year, the company launched its very own specialist SUV brand, HAVAL, at an event attended by a thousand delegates, including distributors and journalists.
Just two years later, in 2015 HAVAL’s best-selling SUV model hit an incredible milestone as the millionth HAVAL H6 rolled off the production line. One year after that, GWM celebrated its own major milestone as it celebrated a sales figure of over a million units of SUVs and pickups sold around the world in a single year.
These incredible numbers provide some indication as to why brand valuation consultancy Brand Finance listed HAVAL as the “world’s most valuable SUV brand” in their Global 500 2018 list.
HAVAL’s Bahrain dealership established on November 2019 in an exclusive partnership with Tas’heelat Automative Company.
