Great Wall deliveries jump 49% on crossover demand

Deliveries at Great Wall Motor Co., China's largest crossover maker, surged 49 percent year on year to 97,685 last month, led by the Havel H6 crossover.

Sales of the H6 soared 74 percent to 53,268 vehicles. With a starting price of 80,000 yuan ($11,905), it has long been the top-selling crossover in China.

Haval H6 demand is also benefiting from a lower China sales tax on vehicles with smaller engines. The crossover is available with several engines -- a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine as well as a 2.0-liter gasoline or diesel engine.

Overall, Great Wall's sales of crossovers and SUVs jumped 59 percent to 87,627 vehicles.

Great Wall also is China's largest manufacturer of pickups, although it is a niche market. In September, Great Wall's pickup sales rose 17 percent to 8,156 vehicles.

While Great Wall has expanded its lineup of crossovers and SUVs, the company has reduced its sedan portfolio to only one model, the C30 compact sedan.

As a result, sedan deliveries in September shrank 49 percent to 1,902 vehicles.

In the first nine months of the year, Great Wall sold 689,992 vehicles, up 18 percent from the same period last year. For the year to date, sales of crossovers and SUVs rose 23 percent to 590,300 vehicles.

Great Wall, based in the north China city of Baoding, is listed in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
