The new WEY VV7 SUV was launched on the Chinese car market last month. Time thus for a visit to the WEY dealer in Beijing. Yes, the dealer, because as for now there is only one. They are based in a brand new building just outside the eastern section of the Fifth Ring Road.

The WEY VV7 SUV has been launched on the Chinese auto market. The VV7, formerly known as the 01, is the first car of Great Wall’s new “premium SUV” WEY brand. The VV7 comes in two kinds: a basic version called VV7c and a sporty version called VV7s. Price starts at 167.800 yuan and ends at 188.800 yuan ($24.388 – 27.384). Hardly premium money and not even that expensive for a Great Wall.

WEY wins the prize for the Best New Car Name (BNCM) on the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show in China. This red vehicle is called the Pi4 VV7x. So easy to remember, so easy to pronounce, so easy to write down, so catchy! Just say it slowly… Pi4 VV7x. Wonderful! Congrats to WEY.

The very first photos of the WEY VV7, formerly known as the WEY 01. The VV7 will be launched on the Chinese car market later this month. Somewhat confusingly the white car on the photos appears to be the sportier S model (compare with base model) with a racy bumpers and four big exhaust pipes, but it doesn’t have the S badge on the back. In anyway, we expect WEY to confuse us a many times more.

It appears we have the initial WEY range complete. Earlier on we saw the WEY 02 and WEY 02 S, the WEY 01, and now we got the WEY 01 S. The names are a tad confusing in their simpleness. The WEY 01 is the larger car, the 02 the smaller one. Each has a base version and a sporty version called S.
On these photos the WEY 01 S. It comes with a racy bumper, different alloys, and four round tail pipes instead of two square ones. Otherwise there don’t seem to be any clear differences.

Great Wall Motors has launched its new WEY brand on the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. Sales will start in April next year. WEY is a “premium SUV brand” which will sell a line of luxurious and sporty SUVs. The WEY brand will be positioned above the Haval brand to compete with the likes of Lexus, Infiniti, Lincoln, and Volvo. Very ambitious indeed. Can they pull it off? Let’s have a closer look:
