July 09,2024

Recently, the "Redefining the POWER" themed launch event for GWM POER took place in Mexico City, marking the entry of GWM's fifth model into the Mexican market, following the HAVAL H6, HAVAL JOLION, ORA 03, and TANK 300 HEV. The launch of GWM POER in Mexico further expands its global sales network and accelerates the global popularity of GWM pickups.

Over 400 attendees, including local automotive and lifestyle media, bloggers, GWM dealers, business partners, POER owners, and GWM Mexico executives, participated in the launch event and test drive activities, witnessing a new milestone for GWM in the Mexican market.

The launch event showcased the POER pickup in various scenarios, including urban settings, forests, off-road terrains, and sand dunes, blending vibrant music to immerse the audience in the multifunctional applications of the pickup. The test drive segment featured smooth urban roads and complex terrains such as pits, steep slopes, climbs, and water crossings, allowing attendees to deeply experience the powerful performance of the POER. A recreational area sponsored by GWM featured an LMB baseball experience zone, enabling guests to enjoy the synergy of GWM vehicles and LMB sports during breaks.

Before its launch in Mexico, the POER underwent localized road testing and adaptation based on local road conditions, traffic regulations, driving habits, and environmental factors, ensuring the vehicle is tailored to local drivers' preferences. The launched POER models include passenger and commercial versions, four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive options. As a mid-size pickup, the POER measures 5.4 meters in length, 1.93 meters in width, and 1.86 meters in height, with a wheelbase of 3.2 meters providing stable handling and comfortable driving. Its 2.0L turbocharged engine paired with an 8-speed transmission balances power, economy, and reliability. This powerful combination allows the POER to handle a payload capacity of 1050 kg and a towing capacity of 2250 kg, making it an excellent choice for commercial needs.
GWM Mexico Country Manager Yao Bin introduced the development history of GWM pickups and the global performance of the GWM POER to guests, media, and users.
