The first models of the factory of Great Wall in Russia will be crossovers Haval Haval H6 and F7

Priladozhie production will start at the Russian factory of Great Wall already this year and in the first quarter of 2019, the new H6 will begin to roll off the production line.

Great Wall Motors, which owns the trademark Haval became the first Chinese company opening its own plant in Russia, and not having specinvtehnica with the government of the Russian Federation! What does this mean? This means that if the list suddenly is not signed, the Great Wall will continue to deliver components from China without any hope for industrial subsidies (PS), which aimed at a partial compensation tax import duties. Now they account for 25%. This tax is paid by all importers of cars and the Russian representative office of Haval Motor Rus including.

However, Great Wall Motors has been a few years ago a resident of the Tula industrial Park “Uzlovaya”, where he built the hull of the new enterprise. This project is still in 2016, was included by the Ministry of industry in the list of recipients of Federal subsidies. Moreover, the state has invested in the power station “Node” (for it was even purchased transformers from Siemens) and the goal of this power plant to give electricity including the plant Great Wall. And if you remember that at the invitation Haval current Governor of Tula region Alexey Dyumin visited the motor show in Shanghai in 2017, Speke is possible not to worry. By the way, according to rumors, Dyumin was impressed by the cars of Haval.

So, what to expect from the run of the mill Great Wall in Russia? It may be that the prices of the models will fall – even in the winter in an interview with our publication it was stated by the Deputy Director-General “Haval Motor Rus” Mikhail Rockin. However, by far to say this is not necessary. The fact that the first two models Haval, which will be produced at the Tula plant is a compact crossover H6 of the second-generation mid-size crossover F7 we have not yet presented. Moreover, F7, and all will celebrate the world premiere in Russia – at the upcoming Moscow motor show!

Note that Russia is likely to start production of H6 with a “red” type label. Recall that in China, the brand produces almost all models in four versions: normal and with the letter S, each of these “branches” can be executed in a “blue” label (youth, sport) or “red label” (family). Michael Rotkin winter told usthat while talking about the launch version with a blue signboard in Russia is not necessary. Note that all these versions of the same model differ in the design of the front and aft, trim, interior designs, and may even have “their” power units.

Interestingly, in contrast to the Belarusian plant BelGee, or rather, his platform in Zhodzina, the Great Wall plant will begin its work with the stamping of parts at a time, as all the stamping for Geely Atlas imported from China. In the first stage of body welding, stamping and molding items, interior and exterior, localization will amount to about 30%, and engines and transmissions will come to the “Hub” from China. Priladozhie production needs to finish this year and the first quarter of 2019 to release the first batch of the new H6.

In the first stage power plant will be 80,000 cars per year. It is clear that this volume of the Russian market simply does not digest, so as the export destinations considering the CIS countries. On the supply of “Russian” cars “far abroad”. And, of course, at full capacity will depend on demand.

It may well be that with the launch of the plant for model Haval will be increased and the service interval, which is now the traditional Chinese Toyota 10 thousand miles. It was Mikhail Rodin also mentioned in an interview with Kolesa.ru.

By the way, along with mid-sized Haval F7 MIAS 2018 should bring one of the concept cars created by Pierre Leclerc, the author of the BMW X6. We will remind, in he August 2017 Leclerc left Haval in Kia. Apparently we are talking about HB-02, which became the prototype not only for Haval F7, but for the entire line F, the first model which – with index F5 will go on sale to Chinese dealers Haval in the near future.

Interestingly, the Chinese decided to abandon the demonstration in Russia is very extravagant, not to say controversial concept WEY XEV Streamed SUV, which was first shown to the public in Frankfurt last year. But the appearance on the stands of “Crocus” is one of serial crossovers brand WEY very likely: there are persistent rumors about the launch of this luxury brand Great Wall in Russia.
