BAODING, China, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --


Aiming for carbon neutrality, GWM recently released several hybrid electric

vehicles that showed its latest R&D results in hybrid technology in order to

promote the R&D of hybrid technology and the upgrading of models.


The Hybrid technology is an essential part of the overall strategic plan of

GWM. Motivated by the R&D concept of "large-investment", GWM has independently

designed and developed the L.E.M.O.N. platform through five-year efforts,

investing RMB 20 billion. This platform can be adapted to two different hybrid

architectures, namely Dedicated Hybrid Technology (DHT) architecture and

P2/P2+P4 architecture.


The L.E.M.O.N. DHT, a highly integrated petrol-electric hybrid technology, can

achieve optimum performance in all speed ranges and all scenarios through

coordination between efficient hybrid engine and the dual-motor hybrid system

to bring users fast, smooth, quiet and economical driving experiences.


HAVAL H6 HEV, which made its global debut in Thailand in June, was equipped

with this technology. Once released, it stirred the local new energy vehicle

market and was favoured by local users. Its market sales ranked No.1 in the

market segment of Thailand in a short time.


This technology was also adopted by WEY MAQIDUO(Chinese name), which was

launched at Tianjin International Auto Show on September 29, 2021. This new

model was capable of fast power response, strong acceleration capability,

smooth gear shifting, and quiet and comfortable driving in various scenarios.

Because of using a high-power and large-capacity HEV battery, it is quite

fuel-efficient with a total driving range of up to 1,100 km and comprehensive

fuel consumption of only 4.7 L/100 km.


Additionally, WEY Coffee 01 PHEV adopts a hybrid architecture of P2+P4. The

vehicle appeared at the International Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) held in

Munich on September 6, 2021. This drive motor is respectively installed on the

front and rear axles to rival the electric four-wheel drive system without the

driveshaft. This combination features strong power, sound economic efficiency

while being applied in multiple scenarios, diversified driving modes and

flexibility. This brings plug-in hybrid power suitable for multiple scenarios

to Coffee 01 PHEV, supporting an acceleration capability of 5s/100km and a

maximum speed of 235 km/h.


Currently, models equipped with the L.E.M.O.N. hybrid technology have covered

two major brands, namely HAVAL and WEY. Then, more hybrid electric vehicles

will be launched later to continuously provide a clean and efficient driving

experience for global users.


Also, GWM insists on multiple technology routes including hybrid, pure electric

and hydrogen energy as well as possessing several technical reserves such as

cobalt-free batteries and Dayu batteries, making a comprehensive technical plan

in clean energy.


As Jack Wei, Chairman of GWM, said at the 2025 Strategy Conference, in the next

five years, GWM would expect to invest up to a total of RMB 100 billion in R&D,

especially in pure electric, hydrogen energy and hybrid technologies, to

maintain its technical leading position.
