The off-roading 2023 GWM Tank 300 hybrid SUV has arrived in Australia.
- 2023 GWM Tank 300 pricing and features
- Hybrid off-roader joins local range from $55,990 drive-away
- Two grades available, with both powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder hybrid system
The GWM Tank 300 is designed and sized comparably to a four-door Jeep Wrangler, but with closer similarities to a body-on-frame large SUV – such as the Toyota LandCruiser Prado and Ford Everest – under the skin.
GWM claims the Chinese-built Tank 300 could "become a strong option for those looking to explore Australian roads, tracks and beyond," with a 2500-kilogram braked towing capacity, a hybrid powertrain, and an on-demand four-wheel-drive system.
Two grades will be offered in Australia – Lux and Ultra – with the entry-level variant priced from $55,990 drive-away – making it similar to a base Isuzu MU-X and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, but below the Ford Everest, Toyota LandCruiser Prado and Jeep Wrangler.
In addition, it sees GWM's electrified vehicle line-up grow to three in Australia, with the addition of the Haval H6 and Haval Jolion hybrids earlier this year.
The brand plans to launch “more than 50” electric and hybrid-powered vehicles by 2025, ahead of a plan to dump petrol and diesel cars by 2030.
