Haval has delivered on its safety pledge after being awarded its first five-star ANCAP safety rating.
The H2 has been awarded the maximum five-star safety grade by the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). This rating applies to all H2 vehicles sold in New Zealand.
“This is a very proud day for everyone in the company and an important step in our quest to become one of the world’s leading SUV companies,” said Haval Australia Chief Marketing Officer Tim Smith.
“I would like to thank each and every one of the hard-working team of engineers at Haval for their efforts in so quickly developing a five-star car for the global market.
“Customer safety is paramount for the continued development of Haval as a global brand and this recognition by ANCAP is just reward for the company’s efforts.
“We will continue to develop our safety systems, with the introduction of key features such as autonomous emergency braking and lane assist systems in the next wave of HAVAL SUVs,” said Mr. Smith.
The addition of the five-star ANCAP rating is the latest in a remarkable run of success for China’s number one SUV manufacturer.
After notching up its one millionth sale in 2012, it achieved a record one million sales in 2016 as it maintained its unbeaten run as the biggest selling SUV brand in China – the world’s largest automotive market.
