How will the fight erect two Chinese dragons — Geely and Haval?

The European Business Association (AEB) published by the Committee of Automobiles (AEB), data for sales of new cars brought sensation. Chinese brand number 1 for the second month in a row in the Russian Federation is Geely. He was ahead of another Chinese brand HAVAL. Back in August, Haval was the first in this conditional competition for the title of the most popular Chinese in Russia.

Today, the Russian dragon came together in the Russian car market, which will challenge the championship from each other for the title of the most popular Chinese brand in the Russian Federation.

Our channel told that the heads of the Moscow office of Haval put in front of the brand

Now it is not to surprise anyone that the two main Chinese brands, openly declared expansion to the Russian market, have the highest sales dynamics. So, in the past October, the Chinese brand Geely increased sales by 2.2 times, in comparison with the period a year earlier. And at the end of the ten months of 2020, 11,757 cars of this Chinese brand were sold in Russia, which resulted in 62%.

The most-selling Geely model in the Russian market in October was the flagship crossover Atlas, whose sales increased by 35%. The second place in popularity was taken by a new compact crossover.

Do you think Geely will stop at this? Nothing like this. Three main strikes prepared a Chinese automaker on the Russian market.

First

Today, the Geely Atlas crossover is produced at a complete cycle with a body welding, colorful and assembly. And today, the company is preparing for release on the full cycle of another model —

But the most important thing, Gennady Svidersky told that in 2021, the release of the «Beldi» will begin

By the way, the new items are the third factor. Novelty works well. Especially for those brands that are already known and tested. And then it is worth a couple of words to say about the novelty Geely Tugella. She fits into a new trend of our Coupe Coupe Market.

His appearance was designed under the leadership of Peter Horbury, who was previously the main VOLVO designer. The model received its name in honor of the waterfall Tuela in South Africa — the second in the height of the waterfall in the world (933 m). The Geely Tugella crossover is created on the CMA modular platform (Compact Modular Architecture) known in the Volvo XC40 model: it has a rear independent suspension, electric power steering and disc brakes on all wheels. According to the format, the novelty is close to Arkan, but Tugella is slightly larger. The overall length of the car was 4605 mm, width — 1878 mm, height — 1643 mm, and the wheelbase is 2700 mm. The volume of the luggage compartment varies from 326 to 1077 liters.

The cross-coupe of Tugella for the Russian market will be equipped with a 2 liter power plant. Judging by the Russian FTS, the engine will be available in two options for forcing (199 and 237 hp). The motor will work in a pair with an 8-speed «automatic» AISIN.

The merchant crossover is positioned as the flagship of the Russian Gamma Geely, therefore there will be no simple sets.

But back to the question set in the title of the material. It turns out that the Geely brand, like the HAVAL brand, lead the «mastering» of the Russian market among the same ways and tools. But there is a small difference. The fact is that the newly Chinese brand Haval signed a special conflict with the Ministry of Industry RF. It means that Haval may apply for various state support measures. But Geely will not sign a similar contract — he develops a production base in the neighboring state. Accordingly, Haval has the ability to flexibly approach the pricing policy. The fighting of two Chinese dragons on the Russian market promises to be interesting. Who will eventually get a bigger prize in the Russian market?
