GWM Set To Shine At JIMS


GWM is gearing up to stun the local market at the forthcoming Johannesburg International Motor Show, occupying one of the biggest stands in Hall 7 with 13 of its products which will be introduced locally during the coming months.

Years of commitment

The models exhibited are the results of the Chinese brand’s continuous commitment to the local market and its customers. Over the last seven years of its existence in South Africa, the company has grown rapidly and built a comprehensive dealership network and a fast growing product line.

According to GWM these products are representative of a brand that has evolved into one that can compete in terms of product quality, sophistication and desirability, rather than just price.

The range

Their bold new C20R model which was launched earlier this month will be joined by the H6 SUV, C30 B-segment sedan, C50 C-segment sedan and M4 crossover. The brand will also display one of its future vehicles whose identity remains a secret for now.

The C30 and C50 will be the first four-door sedans to be offered locally by GWM featuring generous passenger and luggage space, a long list of standard features and high-value pricing.

Set to replicate its stellar Chinese sales success in the South African market, the unique and trendy SUV-themed M4 is also expected to do very well as there is currently no direct rival at its likely price point.

Another representation of the company’s performance-oriented range is China’s top selling SUV, the GWM H6, due to arrive in SA soon. The model will be available with two engine options – a 2.0-litre turbodiesel and 1.5-litre turbopetrol. It is also GWM’s first unibody, front-wheel drive SUV to be launched locally and to compete in a fiercely contested segment in the marketplace.

What sets it apart from the rest “is its ultra-spacious and flexible interior as well as the power and economy balance offered by the all-turbo engine line-up,” claims GWM.

The Johannesburg International Motor Show will take place at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec, from the 16 – 27 October 2013.
