Xu Huanzhi, General Manager of the Middle East division of GWM, announced this as part of the international presentation of the Tank brand, which took place in early July in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh.
According to Car News China, the debut in the Middle East will be the first stage in the brand’s globalization strategy, he said.
Subsequent stages include entering the markets of Australia, Russia, as well as a number of countries in Southeast Asia.
In Saudi Arabia, Xu Huanzhi said that GWM has been cooperating with local dealers since 2017.
When the Russian debut of the Tank brand could take place, the head of GWM Middle East did not specify; there is no clarity about what the model range of the brand will be in our country.
In 2021, as Dvizhok has already reported, Great Wall showed the Tank 300 small SUV in Russia, and then patented its design with Rospatent.
Another car of the brand that could become popular in Russia is the mid-size SUV Tank 500 presented at the event in Riyadh, which will be available in two versions: a 7-seater Sport and a 5-seater Luxury.
