GWM has filed for market homologation for the Tank 300 Hi4-T, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has recently disclosed the application, along with detailed images and specifications.

In terms of dimensions, the Tank 300 Hi4-T maintains the same measurements as the standard 300 model, with a length, width, and height of 4760/1930/1903 mm, respectively, and a wheelbase of 2750 mm. Notably, the curb weight sees a significant increase, with the Hi4-T variant weighing in at 2645 kg compared to 2165 kg for the base 2.0T model, 2187 kg for higher-spec versions, and 2200 kg for the mild hybrid. The SUV features 18-inch wheels and accommodates up to five passengers. Towing capacity stands at 750 kg for an unbraked load and 2000 kg for a braked load.

According to MIIT, the power output for the 2.0-liter turbo engine is rated at 180 kW, slightly lower than the 185 kW found in the PHEV configuration of the Tank 500 Hi4-T. The battery utilized is a ternary lithium type employing nickel-cobalt-manganese chemistry, with a capacity of 37.1 kWh, consistent with both the Tank 400 Hi4-T and Tank 500 Hi4-T models.

It is anticipated that sales of the Tank 300 Hi4-T will commence in the first half of the current year. In China, prices for the Tank 300 range from 199,800 to 302,800 yuan (approximately 28,080 – 42,550 USD).
