Booth visitors also singled out the TANK 500 HEV and the first-ever showcase of ORA Grand Cat for special attention due to their remarkable exterior and interior designs. The top four factors that influenced the survey respondents’ decision to buy a HAVAL vehicle (either the All New HAVAL H6 Plug-in Hybrid SUV, the HAVAL H6 Hybrid SUV or the HAVAL JOLION Hybrid SUV) are 1) affordable price, 2) elegant design, 3) specifications, technologies and performance and 4) extended warranty respectively.
