Chinese cars buck the sales trend, up 36 per cent

Chinese car makers continue to defy the downward trend in Australia’s new-car market, with latest figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries showing a 36 per cent increase in the first five months of this year versus the same period in 2019. That’s bucking the current trend where new car sales have taken a hammering thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting recession.

VFACTS: Chinese brands continue to rise

Despite the continued decline in overall new car sales, brands from China are posting triple-digit growth – namely Haval and MG. For the month of July the overall market slid 2.8 per cent, with the year-to-date figure 7.7 per cent down on the first seven months of 2018. However, SUV specialist Haval recorded a 164.2 per cent increase on July 2018 (albeit off a low base) to 140 registrations, while its YTD tally of 783 vehicles is up 155 per cent on the same period last year.

Haval: Next-generation SUV range not due until 2021

Haval is weighing its future SUV plans in Australia, as it prepares for a new wave of right-hand drive product arriving from China in 2021. The current H2, H6 and H9 line-up looks likely to be bolstered by some combination of the F7, coupe-style F7X, and H6 model ranges currently offered in China. Exactly which remains to be seen, as the company works out an approach that’ll help it cut through in Australia’s overcrowded SUV market.

Haval H2, H6 given drive-away price cut

Haval has trimmed the price of its H2 and H6 SUVs, lowering the cost of entry to $22,990 drive-away and $28,990 drive-away respectively. In the case of the front-wheel drive H2 Premium Automatic, that represents a $1000 price cut on the regular drive-away price, which itself is well down on the $26,490 (before on-road costs) Haval was asking for when the car touched down in October 2015.
