Haval Jolion HEV combines performance and efficiency
Haval South Africa have expanded their HEV product offering with the launch of the self-charging hybrid electric Jolion HEV.
Haval said the new model makes hybrid motoring more accessible and allows more South Africans to benefit from this innovative powertrain configuration, which offers notable benefits both in terms of performance and fuel economy.
The Haval Jolion HEV
The Haval Jolion HEV is differentiated from the rest of the Jolion range by LED headlights and fog lights that now feature blue accents, a diamond front grille, a redesigned front bumper, silver roof rails and dual vent rear spoilers.
17 or 18-inch sports alloy wheels round off the package, depending on the specification grade. All these features combine to deliver a visual experience that is stylish, distinctive and bold.
The Jolion HEV features a 1.5-litre hybrid drivetrain that combines a petrol engine with an electric motor.
Power balancing allows the vehicle to operate solely on electric power or through a combination of the electric motor and the internal combustion engine.
Haval said during normal driving, when certain parameters are met, pure electric power is seamlessly activated.
“Once increased speed and acceleration is required, the internal combustion engine is activated and supplies extra power. The Jolion HEV can seamlessly transfer between configurations including EV, Series Hybrid, Parallel Hybrid and Regeneration depending on the driving conditions and driver input.”
A Dedicated Hybrid Transmission (DHT) combines the outputs of the internal combustion engine and the hybrid system, resulting in a total power output of 140kW and 375Nm.
Haval said the Jolion HEV is capable of using as little as 5.0 litres per 100km, taking fuel consumption to a previously unimagined level.
Two premium variants
The interior offers ample legroom for all passengers and generous boot space.
Heated front seats, a six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat and a four-way mechanically adjustable front passenger seat ensure optimum comfort.
The Haval Jolion HEV is available in Luxury and Super Luxury variants.
Smart keyless entry with push button start, a panoramic sunroof that adds space and dimension to the already roomy cabin, a seven-inch colour instrument cluster and wireless charging are standard on both Luxury and Super Luxury models.
Luxury models feature a 10.25-inch Multimedia Touch Display while super Luxury derivatives feature 12.3-inch Multimedia Touch Display and a Head-Up Display.
The Jolion HEV models feature an Electronic Stability System, Traction Control, ABS and EBD. Passenger safety is ensured thanks to dual front, side and curtain airbags.
All models are also fitted with Anti-Roll System and Secondary Collision Mitigation, Uphill and Downhill Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Rear Parking Sensors.
In addition, Super Luxury models feature a 360-degree panoramic camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist and Intelligent Turning Assist, Lane Departure Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist.
The Haval Jolion HEV is sold with a 5 year/ 60 000km service plan, a 5 year/100 000km warranty and an 8 year/150 000km hybrid battery warranty.
