Great Wall launched the Tank brand in March and has now built a special series Cybertank based on the Wey Tank 300 SUV to celebrate the event. The vehicle will be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 19. Like the regular Tank 300, the “cybernetic” one will receive a turbocharger 2.0 E20CB (227 hp, 387 Nm), an eight-speed “automatic” and four-wheel drive with three locks.
Cybertank has a new grille with a luminous stripe, wheel arch extensions in body color, a new bumper with Y-shaped running lights, LED headlights, a hood with an air intake, forged wheels.
Between the LED cyber-lights sits a Y-shaped gear box that replaces the standard model’s external spare. The roof has been redrawn with a diode off-road light.
The usual black and gray interior in the cyber version of the usual Tank got snow-white leather with a diamond pattern and stitching, and many black interior elements (on the steering wheel, front panel, tunnel) were replaced with chrome ones.
The Tank 300 is on sale in China starting at 175,800 yuan ($ 26,900). In January-February of this year, 9,318 units were sold, and so far the Tank 300 cannot be called popular (it ranks 52nd among crossovers and SUVs of all classes in China). However, the Tank sub-brand expects to strengthen its positions with other models (the Tank 600 and Tank 900 will appear). There is still little information about the “cybernetic” SUV. It is unclear if it will remain a concept or a limited special edition (as suggested by some Chinese media).
