The new Great Wall Motor’s SUV, Tank 700 Hi4-T, will debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show, the brand’s general manager revealed on his microblog. The mid-size off-road SUV is a plug-in hybrid version of an internal combustion engine model, Tank 700, that first debuted in 2021 at the Shanghai Auto Show when the Tank brand was revealed.
Based on the drawings that Tank’s GM attached to its microblog, the plug-in hybrid SUV keeps the Mecha style seen in Tank 400 Hi4-T. Its body resembles the one seen in Tank 300 and 500 as it is also a non-load-bearing body. The off-road features are enhanced as the Chinese-made plug-in hybrid has a high ground clearance and big approach and departure angles paired with all-wheel drive.
The vehicle is closer to the previously revealed Cybertank 700 as its air intake is protruding, and it has a dot-matrix grill, similar front bumpers, and overhead lights.
Based on earlier information, the off-road SUV is built on a 5090(5113)/2061/1952 mm with a 3000 mm wheelbase. The PHEV’s powertrain might comprise a 3.0T V6 engine. The powertrain’s output should be 380 kW and 750 Nm.
