A newly introduced range of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) from Haval H6 has been introduced in Thailand for sale. It was revealed at a car show late last year that the company will be producing the crossover.

There is only one significant difference between the final version of the Haval H6 and its original third-generation versions, namely a more aggressive front fascia, but it boasts some outstanding performance figures in comparison to its predecessor.

More information

It will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine which will be capable of producing an estimated 167 horsepower (hp) and 285 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque in the haval H6 Plugin Hybrid. With the electric motors integrated, this car produces 326 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque with a combined output of the two engines.

In order to send this power to the front wheels, Haval has developed a dedicated hybrid transmission (DHT) designed specifically for this car. Using a dual planetary gear set is how the transmission modulates power between the engine and the electric motor, and sends it only to the front wheels.

The company claims that the GWM has an electric-only range of 201 km and a fuel economy of 35.5 km/liter. Powered by a 41.1 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, it will be able to perform at the levels of range and fuel economy that have been mentioned above.

Additionally, advanced features include the following:

  • 6 Airbags
  • 360º Camera
  • Hill Start Assist and Descent Control
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

H6 PHEV is a major upgrade over its other variants, especially in terms of performance and range. Yet, its base variant in Thailand is equivalent to Rs. 4.8 million while a fully optioned variant is worth Rs. 5.3 million when converted to PKR.

While not exactly cheap, H6 PHEV in Thailand is significantly cheaper than its Pakistani counterparts.
