Great Wall Motors (GWM) is another Chinese brand looking to enter the Indian market. It was in the very advanced stages of buying General Motors Talegaon factory. But the border escalation between India and China has hampered its progress. GWM is still hopeful that it can enter the Indian market in the coming days. In China, the GWM brand sells cars under various sub-brands, one of them being the Tank brand. The Tank 300 is a vehicle that can fit well into the Indian market. In today’s article, we will see the GWM tank 300 – Do we want this in India?.

If GWM does enter the Indian market, it should surely bring the Tank 300 to India. The Tank 300 only competition will be the Jeep Wrangler. If it can undercut the Wrangler it can surely find a lot of new customers. It can also help establish GWM’s image in India as a rough and tough car manufacturer.
