  • Great Wall Motor has announced its India entry on Twitter
  • The GWM India will showcase the Haval range of SUV at the Auto Expo 2020
  • GWM might be planning to invest about Rs. 7,000 crore in India

China's Great Wall Motor has officially announced its entry into the Indian market on social media. The company has recently created a new twitter handle for India with its first tweet saying - "Namaste India! All set for great things ahead". The post also has a small teaser video featuring the outline of an SUV, which is indicative of the company's plan to begin its operations with the launch on an SUV. It makes sense considering the brand is known for its SUV and pick-up range in China and right now, it is the hottest segment in India.

Interestingly, the new Twitter page also has the Haval H6, H9 SUVs, and the Ore R1 electric car. While this in no way confirms that these are the models coming to India, there have been reports that the company will enter India with the Haval range of SUVs. Having said that, Great Wall Motor will be participating at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020, and we are likely to get more information about the company's India line-up at the auto show.
