Haval Plans To Stop Fuel Powered Vehicles Production From 2030
As we know, many car manufacturers have already announced to quit selling fossil-fuel vehicles. After Volvo made its pledge a long time ago, Mercedes Benz and Cadillac have also taken firm decisions to put a stop to fuel-powered vehicles.
Haval by Great Wall Motors has also decided to follow these car giants, implementing the international go green campaign. According to some reports, Haval has announced a halt to internal combustion engines by 2030. This means that Haval will say NO to petrol and diesel engines in the coming future.
Li Xiaorui, the brand manager of GWM, put forward the plan to commence the production of Hybrid and electric vehicles in 2030. According to Li, this will account for 80 percent of sales in 2025, seems a huge target to achieve in a very small time, doesn’t it?
Li Xiaorui further stated that the recent growth in the sales of electric vehicles has stimulated the company to produce EVs and welcome the green future.
Since March 22, BYD, the first company to give up on fuel engines, has sold more than 100,000 units thus surpassing TESLA sales. According to the reports, the new electric vehicle market is challenging the traditional market, which is why the traditional market players have shown interest in producing hybrid electric vehicles.
Reports also confirm that BYD Song, a crossover utility vehicle, has surpassed the sales of the best-selling unit of Haval, Haval H6. The sales charts from January to July 2022 show that Haval H6 sold 123,496 units of Haval H6 while BYD sold 162,573 units of Song in the same time period.
Not only manufacturers have decided to stop the production of internal combustion engines, but Hainan province in China has publicly announced to ban the sales of ICE from 2030 onwards. This is a huge step towards saving the environment. Again, China is the first one geared to push the electric button!
