Haval is making another SUV because 10 is not enough
If you’re looking to buy an SUV from Haval in China, you have up to ten models to choose from. That, however, is not stopping them from making more.
Another round of spy shots has gone online showcasing yet another new SUV model from the Chinese manufacturer, which is said to be launched in the country sometime within the first half of 2023.
11th SUV model? Nope, 12th model
This brand-new Haval model is said to be positioned between the Haval H6 and H9. In other words, it’s a full-sized SUV that features the brand’s most premium-looking interior.
Based on what was reported by CarNewsChina, this sleek yet large SUV is destined to be the brand’s 12th SUV model. Why 12th? Haval is also looking at launching its latest H-Dog model, also within the first half of 2023. Do you know any other manufacturers that have 12 different SUV offerings that you can buy today?

Said to be built on the new Lemon platform from Great Wall Motors, this new Haval SUV will most likely be offered in two different powertrains – a 2.0 turbo ICE and a 1.5 turbo PHEV. The one that you’re looking at is possibly the ICE version.
Skip all that to the interior, what you’re welcomed with is a completely circle steering wheel positioned in front of quite a large instrument cluster together with an even larger centre screen that spans the length of the front passenger side.
Other features include a couple of wireless charging pads and other buttons for different functions but no gear selector. Perhaps it is positioned near the steering? More details to come soon. For now, expect the official launch of the Haval H6 and Jolion here in Malaysia soon.
