GWM’s Tank 800 full-size SUV prototype was unveiled overnight at the 2021 Shanghai motor show, set to become the brand’s flagship luxury offering.

Much like the Rolls-Royce Cullinan – from which inspiration was clearly drawn – the Tank 800 gets a star-studded roof lining, privacy curtains, full-size reclining rear seats, integrated door umbrellas, passenger touch screens, custom cushions, a champagne bar, and automatic doors.

The interior appears to be cladded with an Alcantara-esque microfibre, while aluminium highlights line the dashboard, steering wheel, centre console, and door sills.

Drive for the "near-production" vehicle comes from a 3.0-litre V6 plug-in hybrid unit, and this is sent to all four wheels via a nine-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.

A production variant is reportedly slated for launch in China sometime next year. GWM is yet to comment on the prospect of an international launch, but, at least in the short term, this seems unlikely.

Earlier this week the Tank sub-brand – formally badged as Wey or Haval – launched its Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen-rivalling Cybertank concept to much fanfare in Shanghai.
