Chinese electric car brand is considering selling petrol cars

Last week it emerged that Great Wall Motor is laying off its employees in Europe. Now the Chinese brand is considering selling petrol cars.

Great Wall Motor will close its European headquarters in Munich, Germany, and handle sales to Europeans directly from China.

It came out in the end. At the same time, it is clear that several people who were hired for the brand's expansion in Europe do not have any jobs to work for anyway.

This is written by Automobilwoche .

And now the brand is considering whether to stick with the internal combustion engine anyway. The group's Haval brand has otherwise said that it will stop selling petrol and diesel cars by 2030 at the latest.

But disappointing sales of electric cars may well make top management have second thoughts. The Chinese are thus leaning on several European and American brands, which are currently busy with ambitious electric car targets.

Most recently, Ford has announced that it will not withdraw petrol and diesel cars from the European market in 2030. And at Mercedes, the electric cars are so disappointing that they have scrapped the development of several electric cars and a whole plan for the next decade. Read more about it here.

Back at Great Wall Motor, the Chinese have reportedly only succeeded in selling 6,300 cars throughout Europe in the course of 2023. In comparison, the Chinese brand Polestar also sold over 2,000 cars in Denmark alone in the course of the same period.
