Haval Raptor PHEV

Haval Raptor first entered the Chinese market in October 2023. It is a plug-in hybrid SUV based on the Lemon modular architecture from Great Wall Motor. After the launch, Raptor sold around 6,000 units for three months in a row. But then the sales volume decreased to approximately 2,000 cars per month. It seems that GWM is eager to increase Raptor’s sales volume by launching the variant with an updated exterior styling and the ICE powertrain.

The exterior styling of the Haval Raptor was likely changed to differ from the recently released Haval H9 flagship off-roader. These two models appeared to be quite similar in terms of exterior styling. Now, the adjusted variant of the Raptor looks more distinctive.

New Haval Raptor powertrain

The current variant of the Haval Raptor is available in China as a plug-in hybrid. Its powertrain adopts the 1.5-liter turbocharged ICE for 123 kW (165 hp) paired with two e-motors with a combined power of 220 kW (295 hp). However, the Chinese regulator revealed that Great Wall Motor is working on the ICE variant of the Raptor. 

The petrol-powered version of the Haval Raptor adopts the 2-liter turbocharged GW4N20A engine with a peak power output of 175 kW (235 hp). There is no information about the Raptor’s gearbox. However, we do know it is an all-wheel-drive crossover. Its top speed reaches 200 km/h. The ICE variant of the Haval Raptor will enter the market this year.
