Mocha midsize SUV to be Wey’s new flagship

Chinese concern Great Wall showed the first photos of the Wey Mocha crossover. The model will enter the market in two versions: conventional and plug-in hybrid. Local journalists found out that for the petrol-electric version the fuel consumption is 1.4 liters per 100 kilometers. Full specifications will be revealed on January 20.

In the hierarchy of the Great Wall concern, the Wey brand belongs to the premium, and Mocha is the future flagship of the brand. According to Chinese journalists, the conventional and electrified versions will differ significantly in size – the difference in body length will be 207 millimeters, and in wheelbase – 170 millimeters. If the traditional crossover turns out to be a classmate of the Skoda Kodiaq, then the hybrid will be longer and wider than the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado!

The dissonant name Mocha for Russian speakers is a consequence of the difficulties in translating the Chinese character 摩卡 into English. The Wey crossover was named after the Moccachino coffee drink.

Photos of the exterior of the hybrid version of Wey Mocha have been officially published, but the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Trade has revealed the exterior of a simpler modification. Externally, the crossovers look like twins, but the similarity is only visual, because there are no common body parts. In addition, the optics, bumpers, radiator grille, door handles and wheels are decorated differently.

It is expected that crossovers Mocha will be equipped with a new “turbo four” 2.0 line 4N20 and a 9-speed robotized transmission. In the regular version, the 214-horsepower engine will be combined with the 9DCT preselection, in the hybrid – with a similar transmission with an integrated 9HDCT electric motor. The drive is only for the front axle.

Power and dynamic characteristics are still kept secret, but they promise enviable efficiency: an ordinary SUV spends 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers, and a plug-in hybrid – only 1.4 liters per 100 kilometers.

Wey plans to reveal all of Mocha’s specs and reveal interior photos on January 20. The public premiere of the crossovers will probably take place in April at the Shanghai Motor Show – prices may also be revealed there.
