Great Wall

Great-Wall-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeChinese automaker Great Wall is the only Chinese car manufacturer with their own factory in Europe, as Chery vehicles are produced and marketed under the DR Motor brand in Italy. In 2011, Great Wall started production of three of its vehicles in Bulgaria, with a local manufacturing partner. Great Wall has a dealer network in the following European countries: Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, Italy, Moldova, Russia, the UK and Ireland, and Ukraine, of which only Italy, the UK and Ireland are counted in the statistics below.

Great Wall sells the Steed pick-up truck in the UK and Ireland, and also a subcompact hatchback Voleex C20R in Italy until 2015. The Hover H5 SUV, has been on sale until 2011 and was supposed to be replaced by the (Haval) H6 SUV in 2015. The Haval H6 is China’s best selling SUV and parent company Great Wall is serious about its intentions: it wants to become the world’s largest producer of SUV’s. Haval sold 280.000 SUV’s in 2012 and grew to 662.000 in 2015, already overtaking Land Rover which produced just under 500.000 SUVs that year. However, Jeep still sells almost twice as many SUVs and will continue to progress thanks to the addition of new models like the Renegade and the replacement to the Patriot and Compass, and thanks to Jeep’s start of local production in Great Wall’s backyard China.

In order to reach its goal, sales of SUV’s in Europe and the United States are essential, even when SUV sales in China are the fastest growing segment and Haval is riding that wave successfully. The brand offers a six year/125.000 miles powertrain warranty on the Steed pick-up truck in the UK to reduce fears of bad Chinese quality. Great Wall’s European sales all but came to a halt in 2016 when volume sank to just over 100 units.

The figures below don’t include sales of Great Wall in its European “home” market, which were 573 units in 2014, down from 672 in 2013 and 1.461 in 2012.

  1. you should put bulgaria sale as well, as great wall have production plant in bulgaria

  2. Bart Demandt says:

    Hi Ivajlo,
    if you have a source for sales figures of Great Wall in Bulgaria, I’m happy to include them here!
    I’d love to know how they’re doing in their European “home” market.

  3. Hello Bart. SAIC lease the Longbridge plant in the UK to make MG cars. They are not made under licence to another company like I assume DR do in Italy. However, it’s not their own factory as GWM seem to have in Bulgaria. So perhaps half way between the two.

Let me know what you think of this article. Thanks!
