New Haval H6 Hybrid Set To Land At $44,990 Driveaway

Production of the new Haval H6 Hybrid for Australia has commenced with the first arrivals expected in the coming weeks.

Based on the range topping H6 Ultra, the new H6 Hybrid will be made available initially with just one grade, the H6 Hybrid Ultra 4×2 priced at $44,990 Driveaway.

Powered by a 1.5 litre turbo petrol engine mated to a two-speed 130kW electric drive motor, the Haval H6 Hybrid offers a segment-leading combination of 179kW and 530Nm and fuel efficiency of just 5.2 litres per 100km using regular unleaded fuel.

GWM’s DHT (Dedicated Hybrid Transmission) smart hybrid system combines a petrol engine and electric motor with an electronically controlled transmission to offer excellent acceleration and performance at low speeds with increased efficiency and power at higher speeds to deliver a driving experience similar to that of a BEV.

With the ability to operate in multiple drive modes including EV, Series, Parallel and Regeneration, GWM’s DHT smart hybrid system has been designed to provide maximum efficiency across all speed and load conditions.

With highly integrated and compact design for lighter weight, the DHT system also offers excellent reliability and NVH performance.

Visually, the H6 Hybrid will differentiate itself from the current H6 with a new front grille, added door trims and rear centre brake lights.

  • 19- inch alloy wheels
