Haval SUV brand launches in NZ

China’s number one selling SUV maker is coming to the New Zealand market.

Haval is set to launch the compact H2 and medium-sized H6 models in August with dealerships around the country. The all-new 7-seat Haval H7 will follow shortly after.

“The SUV market continues to grow in New Zealand and we are confident the HAVAL range can be a key player here,” said Haval New Zealand Chief Marketing Officer Tim Smith.

“While other manufacturers are spreading their talents across a wide range of vehicles and platforms, Haval is focusing and specialising in the fastest growing automotive sector in the world.”

“Since the launch of our first SUV in China in 2002, Haval has become the No.1 SUV manufacturer in the world’s largest automobile market and has been the top-selling SUV brand in China for 15 consecutive years. 

“We sold more than one million vehicles in 2016 and have been named the world’s most powerful SUV brand by leading business valuation firm Brand Finance.”

Haval and sister brand, Great Wall Motors, have been confirmed as main sponsors for NZ heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker’s first WBO title defence against Romanian contender Razvan ‘Bigfoot’ Cojanu in Auckland on May 6.
