Majority rules: The brands pinning sales success to a single model

Every brand has a top-seller. Differences in price, positioning and market acceptance mean this will always be an inescapable truth. Some brands, more than others, have a clear top seller. To the end of July 2020 there are 17 individual brands relying on a single model for over half their sales tally.

2020 Haval H2 pricing and specs

Haval’s entry-level soft-roader, the H2, has received a modest nip-and-tuck and some extra equipment for 2020. The most notable change to the exterior is the grille. The H2 appears to have adopted the fascia of the Chinese-market H2 Blue Label, a sportier H2 variant introduced in 2016. The six-sided grille gains some horizontal chrome bars, making it rather reminiscent of the outgoing Ford Escape.

Haval design boss: Doubt Chinese cars at your peril

Haval preparing marketing-led makeover Down Under

Haval is moving away from price-led marketing, as it pushes to reposition itself in the crowded Australian market. Don't expect to see slogans like "luxury you don't have to sell the house for" going forward. Rather than parroting drive-away prices, the brand is keen to shine a light on the global engineering talent behind its products. Unfortunately, a fresh range of products to back up the revised advertising approach won't be arriving until 2021.

Haval H2 'MT' launches from $19,990 drive-away

Haval Australia has launched the H2 MT, a new entry-level manual version of its smallest crossover that dips under the $20,000 barrier for the first time. Priced from $19,990 drive-away, the H2 MT is powered by the same 110kW/210Nm 1.5-litre turbo four as the wider range, though is exclusively offered with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. Fuel consumption is rated at 8.2L/100km on the combined cycle, 0.8L down on versions equipped with the six-speed auto.
