  • A stronger electrified lineup with a new fully-electric vehicle model and two new plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV)

April 4, 2024 – Pasay City, GWM Philippines, under the distributorship of Luxuriant Automotive Group, Inc. (LAGI), expands its lineup with the introduction of its first fully-electric vehicle for the Philippine market and the preview of its upcoming new energy vehicles at the 2024 Manila International Auto Show (MIAS).

“Today marks a significant milestone not just for GWM, but for the Philippine market as well. Since we launched, our goal has been to provide automotive products that will respond to the needs and wants of every Filipino. So far, I believe we are successful in doing so,” said Fritz Gerald De Ocampo, Product Planning Manager of GWM Philippines.

GWM launched at the motor show the ORA 03, and is previewing the WEY GaoShan PHEV, Haval MengLong PHEV, and Haval M6. The company is also showcasing the Tank 300 off-roader SUV which it launched a few months ago and has easily become one of its most in-demand models.

ORA 03

The ORA 03 is GWM’s newest offering for the Philippine market, and also the first fully-electric vehicle in its lineup. Available in two variants—the ORA 03 400, and ORA 03 500–it is the essence of a statement car with its fashionable, iconic, and eye-catching design. 

Following the “Retro-Modernistic” concept, the ORA 03 combines a retro look with modern features. Round full LED headlamps with round daytime running lights give it a recognizable appearance. Meanwhile, its interior continues with the retro-modern aesthetic with clean surfaces, pastel upholstery, matched with dual displays for the driver’s information screen and infotainment system.

Comfort and convenience are key with loads of standard equipment such as a Panoramic Sunroof, 10.25” Infotainment Screen with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Leather Seats, Front Seat Ventilation with Massage Function, Automatic Climate Control, and a Wireless Phone Charger, among others.

The ORA 03 is powered by an electric motor that produces 169 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. With a 48 kWh battery pack on the 400 variant, it can drive up to 310 kilometers on the WLTP cycle. On the other hand, with a 63 kWh battery pack on the 500 variant, it can drive up to 420 kilometers on the WLTP cycle.

Safety is uncompromised with the GWM ORA 03 as both variants come standard with a comprehensive list of Active and Passive Safety Features which include but are not limited to Six Airbags, 3-Point Seatbelts for all passengers, ISOFIX Tethers, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HSA), Roll Movement Intervention, Secondary Collision Mitigation, Traction Control System (TCS), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and a 360-Degree View Camera, among others.

WEY GaoShan and Haval MengLong PHEV

GWM Philippines also took the opportunity to preview its upcoming plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV)—the WEY GaoShan luxury MPV and Haval MengLong compact SUV.

Both these models are powered by 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engines paired to an electric motor. In the WEY GaoShan, this powertrain produces 480 horsepower and 762 Nm of torque with its 39.48 kWh battery, while in the Haval MengLong it produces 373 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque with its 19.09 kWh battery. The former has an all electric driving range of 140 kilometers on the WLTP cycle, while the latter has an all electric range of 102 kilometers on the NEDC cycle.

They also feature GWM’s Hybrid Intelligent 4WD or Hi4 technology, the world’s first intelligent control four-wheel drive hybrid technology. This provides a four-wheel drive experience, two-wheel drive price, four-wheel drive performance, and two-wheel drive energy consumption achieving optimal efficiency in all working conditions leading to worry-free driving in all scenarios.

Haval M6

A compact SUV for the price of a subcompact sedan? That’s the GWM Haval M6 which will be available in the coming months. This compact SUV will be GWM’s entry-level SUV for the Philippine market.

Despite being low on price, the Haval M6 is high on standard features. Customers can expect the GWM Haval M6 to come standard with LED Headlamps with Daytime Running Lamps, Power Sunroof, 17” Alloy Wheels, Leather Seat Upholstery, Automatic Climate Control, Rear A/C Vents, a 10.25” Infotainment Screen, and Smart Keyless Entry with Push Button Start, among others.

Drives certainly won’t be boring with the Haval M6’s 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, producing 150 horsepower and 210 Nm of torque, mated to a 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission (DCT). It also features three driving modes—Eco, Standard, and Sport—to ensure that the vehicle can adjust to any driving situation.

TANK 300

Also being showcased at the GWM booth at the MIAS 2024 is the brand’s new TANK 300 premium off-roader SUV which was introduced to the market a few months ago.

The TANK 300 wears soft curves and flowing lines for a tough, commanding design language. Its front fascia is characterized by a rectangular, three-slatted grille, matched with horizontal LED Daytime Running Lights that run along the center of the rounded LED Headlamps, creating a distinctly modern twist on off-road SUV designs of the past.

What truly defines the TANK 300 as a premium and modern off-road SUV is its cabin. It features standard Nappa Leather upholstery with diamond-pattern stitching, normally seen in high-end luxury sedans. Also standard are a pair of 12.3” digital displays for the driver’s instrument cluster and infotainment system, paired with a 9-speaker Premium Infinity Audio System.

The TANK 300 is truly a capable vehicle with its turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine that pumps out 217 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque, mated to a German ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. 

The GWM TANK 300 is available for Php 2,678,000.
