The Tank 700 Hi4-T sits on a 5113/2061/1952 mm chassis and a wheelbase of 3000 mm. It has a 3-liter bi-turbo V6 for 360 hp and 500 Nm. The engine is paired with a 9AT transmission and an electric motor. The powertrain’s output is 517 hp and 750 Nm.
The Tank 700 Hi4-T is the third PHEV model under the Tank brand. It is the first car with a Hi4-T system powered by a 3-liter V6. Other PHEVs under the Tank brand use a 2-liter, in-line 4-cylinder engine.
The Tank 700 Hi4-T is a rugged SUV with huge headlights, wide wheel arches, a sporty front bumper, and a slot in the bonnet. From the rear, it has a roof spoiler and a rear diffuser. It has a swing-out trunk door with a spare wheel mounted on it. The 700 Hi4-T rides on R22 wheels with 275/50 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV tires.
Tank was launched by Great Wall Motor in 2021. Its first model is the Tank 300 SUV. It was previously a model under Wey, another GWM brand. Thanks to the market success, Tank has become an independent brand. Its model line comprises three vehicles: Tank 300, Tank 400 Hi4-T, and Tank 500 (with Tank 500 Hi4-T variant). Soon, the Tank 700 Hi4-T will also hit the market.
