Haval Raptor Plug-in Hybrid SUV to be Cheaper than Expected

The upcoming Haval Raptor plug-in hybrid SUV will be more affordable than initially anticipated, according to promotional materials released by a Great Wall Motor dealership. Official sales for the latest Haval SUV are set to commence on September 20, with prices ranging from $22,000 to $26,000. It is worth noting that the previously announced starting price of $27,000 has been revised.

The Haval Raptor will come equipped with a Cafe Intelligent Cockpit system, boasting a 12.3-inch full-screen instrument panel and a 14.6-inch central control unit.

Other notable features include a panoramic image system with a 540-degree viewing angle, a W-HUD head-up display, four cup holders, a temperature-controlled armrest, 50 W wireless charging, and up to 10 speakers in the older version (8 in the base version).

In terms of dimensions, the car will have a body measuring 4680 x 1916 x 1822 mm with a wheelbase of 2738 mm. The external spare wheel will extend the length by an additional 120 mm, resulting in a total length of 4,800 mm. The ground clearance will be at least 170 mm when fully loaded, increasing to 200 mm when unloaded. Moreover, the fording depth is expected to be 560 mm. The trunk volume will be 586 liters, expandable to 1404 liters by folding the rear seats.

The Haval Raptor will be available in two power versions: base and high-performance. Both versions will utilize Great Wall Motors’ Hi4 hybrid system, which comprises a 1.5-liter engine and two electric motors. The base version will offer a combined output of 377 horsepower, along with a 19.09 kWh battery enabling a pure electric range of 102 km. On the other hand, the older version will provide a combined power of 383 kW and a 27.54 kWh battery, resulting in a pure electric range of 145 km.
