On January 6th, Haval H-DOG made its debut at the Haikou New Energy Auto Show. The new car is equipped with Great Wall’s 2-speed DHT hybrid technology and positioned for urban commuting and light off-road.
Exterior & Interior
The length, width, and height of Haval H-DOG are 4705×1908×1780 mm, and its wheelbase is 2810 mm. The overall size is larger than that of Big Dog, making it the largest model in the Haval “Dog” series.
In terms of exterior design, Haval H-DOG is more exaggerated and tough than Big Dog. Compared to the straight lines on Big Dog, Haval H-DOG has added many lines that highlight a “muscular” feeling, and is more inclined to a mecha style. The taillights of Haval H-DOG also do not adopt a through design, and the two independent areas on both sides look more individual.
In terms of passing ability, Haval H-DOG has an approach angle of 24°, a departure angle of 30°, a longitudinal passing angle of 19°, a minimum ground clearance of 200 mm, and a wading depth of 560 mm, which provides a certain degree of light off-road capability.
In terms of interior, Haval H-DOG’s intelligent cockpit is equipped with the latest generation of Coffee Intelligence System, using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip. The voice assistant supports 250 ms quick wake-up and can perform continuous commands. Haval H-DOG uses a more vibrant color scheme in the interior, creating an atmosphere through the rugged decoration on the door handles.
## 1.5T Engine + 2-speed DHT
In terms of powertrain, Haval H-DOG is equipped with a 1.5T engine + 2-speed DHT powertrain, with a system maximum power of 240 kW and a maximum torque of 530 N·m.
Haval H-DOG’s official NEDC fuel consumption is 5.52 L/100km, with a pure electric range of up to 105 km and a comprehensive range of over 1000 km. In terms of charging efficiency, Haval H-DOG has a fast charging power of 33 kW, and it takes 22 minutes to charge from 30% to 80% battery.
In addition, Haval H-DOG has a 220 V reverse discharge function with a discharge power of 3.3 kW. The official statement shows that it can discharge for more than 30 hours when fully fueled and fully charged.
At the same time, Haval H-DOG is equipped with level 2 advanced driving assistance system, including 12 ultrasonic radars, 2 millimeter-wave radars, and 5 cameras.
In terms of safety, Haval H-DOG has a key component steel plate strength of 2000 megapascals, with high-strength steel accounting for 74.2%, and a torsional stiffness of 20,352 Nm/°.
Haval did not announce the price of H-DOG at this Haikou Auto Show. However, it can be seen from the release of Haval H-DOG that through the downward coverage of DHT technology, the cost of this powertrain is expected to be reduced and applied to lower-priced models, thereby improving Great Wall’s competitiveness in the hybrid SUV market.
