The models that have been introduced in Batam are the H1, H2 and H8 with almost 100 bookings having been recorded so far.
According to Go Auto CEO Ahmad Azam Sulaiman, the company is optimistic that the numbers will increase after its official launch and have targeted to sell 400 units in Batam for the remainder of this year.
The company’s plan is to turn Malaysia into a Haval Sports Utility Vehicle assembling hub with Energy Efficient Vehicle status for export to other Asean markets,
“We also have demands coming in from Singapore which we think is fascinating. It’s not due to market value but more on the brand itself. Haval’s arrival in Singapore will be a benchmark for the brand in Asean”, said Azam.
After Cambodia, Brunei and Batam, the company now plans to expand into Vietnam, Philippines and Myanmar from now towards the end of 2018.
