Hybrid technology is an integral part of GWM’s overall strategic plan. Motivated by the “big investment” R&D concept, GWM has independently designed and developed the LEMON platform through five years of effort by investing 20 billion RMB. This platform can be adapted to two different hybrid architectures, namely the Dedicated Hybrid Technology (DHT) architecture and the P2 / P2 + P4 architecture.

The LEMON DHT, a highly integrated gasoline-electric hybrid technology, can achieve optimal performance in all speed ranges and all scenarios through the coordination between an efficient hybrid engine and a two-engine hybrid system in order to offer the user fast, smooth, quiet and economical driving experiences.

HAVAL H6 HEV, which will have its world premiere in. celebrated Thailand in June was equipped with this technology. After its release, it has moved the local market for new energy vehicles and has been favored by local users. Its market sales rank # 1 in the market segment of Thailand in a short time.

This technology was also adopted by WEY MAQIDUO (Chinese name) which was shown at the Tianjin International Auto Show on. was presented September 29, 2021. This new model was able to achieve quick force response, strong acceleration ability, smooth gear changes and smooth and comfortable driving in various scenarios. By using a powerful and large-volume HEV battery, it is quite fuel-efficient with a total range of up to 1,100 km and a total consumption of only 4.7 l / 100 km.

In addition, WEY Coffee 01 PHEV uses a hybrid architecture of P2 + P4. The vehicle appeared at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Munich At September 6, 2021. This drive motor is installed on the front and rear axles in order to compete with the electric all-wheel drive without a drive shaft. This combination is characterized by strong performance, solid economy when used in multiple scenarios, diverse driving modes and flexibility. Coffee 01 PHEV is thus equipped with a plug-in hybrid drive, which is suitable for several scenarios and supports an acceleration of 5 s / 100 km and a top speed of 235 km / h.

Models equipped with LEMON hybrid technology currently cover two major brands, namely HAVAL and WEY. Later on, more hybrid electric vehicles will come onto the market in order to continuously offer users around the world a clean and efficient driving experience.

Additionally, GWM insists on multiple technology lanes including hybrid, all-electric, and hydrogen power, as well as owning multiple technical reserves such as cobalt-free batteries and Dayu batteries in order to create a comprehensive clean energy technical plan.

As Jack Wei, Chairman of GWM, said at the 2025 Strategy Conference that GWM is expected to grow up to total over the next five years RMB 100 billion in R&D, especially in pure electric, hydrogen-energy and hybrid technologies, in order to maintain its technical leadership position.
