Tank hits local market
The GWM Tank 300 has gone on sale in New Zealand and it’s being offered in two electrified variants, the Lux Hybrid and Ultra Hybrid.
Both variants of the 4x4 feature turbocharged two-litre four-cylinder petrol engines combined with an electric motor for 258kW of power and 615Nm of torque, and mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The line-up starts with the 300 Lux Hybrid, which is priced from $56,990 before on-roads. Standard kits includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a 360-degree camera system.
The 300 Ultra Hybrid builds on the entry-level model’s appointments with bigger 18-inch wheels, nappa leather accented seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, wireless phone charging nine-speaker sound system and a locking front differential.
Standard safety and driver-assistance systems on both variants include adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist, rear cross traffic alert and traffic-sign recognition. Pricing for the highest-specification model starts at $61,990 plus on-road costs.
