Daniel Cotterill from Great Wall’s Australian importer, Ateco Automotive, confirmed the April updates would not include the introduction of a diesel engine (X200, V200 models) or an automatic transmission. He said those additions were on track to occur early in the second half of the year.
Mr Cotterill said “I think Q3 is still a pretty good bet,” and also says “Things like this never happen as soon as you would like. It’s always a complicated process.” According to official VFACTS data released by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries, two Great Wall X200 diesel SUVs were registered in Australia in March. Mr Cotterill confirmed these vehicles were “homologation cars” used by Great Wall Motors Australia to be subjected to a range of tests to ensure the cars were ready to enter the market.
The X240 and V240 are currently only available with a 100kW/200Nm 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a five speed manual transmission. The third quarter updates will add diesel and automatic transmission to the X240 range.
