Greatwall is apparently planning to sell the Coolbear MPV in Europe sometime next year, as Greatwall has recently been awarded European Whole of Vehicle Type Approval (WVTA) which was awarded by the Vehicle Certification Agency based in the UK.
The WVTA testing is quite comprehensive and covers 48 different tests, 13 on active safety, 13 on passive safety and eight on emissions and environmental protection, all of which Greatwall Motors was able to successfully pass.
Greatwalls current European market is made up of Italy, although Greatwall does expect to expand aggressively in Eastern and central Europe over the coming months.
The forefront of Greatwalls export drive has been the Greatwall Hover SUV which has seen exports of the model rise by 57% this year with cars being sent to 128 different countries and territories according to GreatWall. The Hover is reportedly built to a four star Euro NCAP level, however it has yet to be tested independently in Europe.
