Propelling this ride is a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that’s good for 150 hp and 210 Nm of torque. It is paired with a seven-speed wet-type dual-clutch gearbox, and it features eco, standard, and sport drive modes. 

GWM says that the Haval M6 will be entering the market soon. But for now, its exact launch date and its pricing details are yet to be disclosed by the brand. 

Our take

GWM’s showing at MIAS is a pretty varied lineup that’ll hit two huge segments in the market and that’s a great way of capturing the attention of the car-buying public. The brand’s two new hybrids though, are quite promising in terms of performance and that’s always a plus. The cute-looking Ora 03 is also offering plenty despite its relatively affordable price.
