2021 Haval H6: Everything we know so far

The Chinese carmaker, Great Wall Motors (owners of Haval, Wey, Ora, and Great Wall), has recently made its official entry in Thailand, where it will be soon launching its two highly popular models - Haval H6 and Ora Good Cat. For this, the company has taken over the General Motors' Rayong plant in the Land of Smiles, which will be now GWM export Hub for other South East Asia countries, including Malaysia and Indonesia. 

Talking about the Haval current range in Malaysia, the brand has two models on offer - Haval H1 and H2. Back in 2017, the previous-gen H6 model was slated to land in the country as a fully imported model from China, but as we can see, it could not happen. So, now when the latest-gen SUV is all set to hit the Thai-market, we can expect that GWM will be soon launching the updated version in Malaysia as well.
