The presale of Jiaxing-made vehicle Haval Red Rabbit began after premiering at the 2021 Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, which is taking place from April 19 to 28, local media reported on April 25.
That the presale started as scheduled would not have been possible without the efficient workshops of Great Wall Motors' branch company in Pinghu, a county-level city in Jiaxing.
At the branch company's welding workshop, 91 industrial robots are busy carrying, welding, as well as sorting auto parts, ensuring the quality of welding and the strength of car bodies.
At the assembly shops, there are 265 workers working at four main production lines and six auxiliary production lines, in which a finished automobile can come off the production line in 228 seconds on average.
The Pinghu branch is expected to manufacture more than 4,000 vehicles this month, 3,000 more than two months ago.
In addition, construction on the research and development center of GWM in Pinghu began last month, the first such project of GWM's outside of its headquarters in Baoding, Hebei province.
The R&D center is expected to hold more than 5,000 technical talents, including nearly 1,000 foreign and Chinese experts. It will receive more than 1 billion yuan ($154.16 million) from GWM for research and development per year.
