BAODING, China and MELBOURNE, Australia, Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

In Melbourne on 12th November, Australasia's independent vehicle safety 
authority, A-NCAP SAFETY, announced a 5 star A-NCAP safety rating for all GWM 
Ute dual cab utilities built from 1 August 2021. The Ute has been assessed 
against A-NCAP's current and most stringent 2020-2022 test criteria, providing 
a high level of safety to occupants and other road users. The GWM Pickup (also 
known as POER, P-Series, Cannon Ute) becomes the third vehicle in its segment 
to achieve 5 stars under the latest protocols.

GWM pickup performed well in A-NCAP testing, achieving full points in side 
impact and far-side impact tests (for both adult and child occupants), full 
points in testing of active lane support system functionality, strong scores 
for driver protection in frontal impact crashes, and a high level of protection 
in rear impact whiplash crashes.

"GWM has shown its dedication and commitment to providing its customers with 
the highest levels of safety by swiftly incorporating improvements to its 
pickup models, and its global consumers are being supplied with a safer 
vehicle," said one GWM spokesman.

"Australia A-NCAP has a very mature assessment system and is one of the most 
stringent safety certification authorities in the world. In 2020, the A-NCAP 
standard has been upgraded and revised again just after 2 years aligned with 
ENCAP standards, and it is most stringent standard ever in history. We 
appreciate the engineering efforts done by GWM R&D team and are happy to see 
that with the concept of 'smart safety' in mind, GWM pickup particularly 
performed well in terms of ADAS features test items such as SAS, AEB, LDW, LKA 
have been added across the range," Charles Zhao, MD of the GWM Australia added.

As one of the three major pickup markets in the world, Australia is a cultural 
mecca for lifestyle pickup lovers. Whether it is in the sparsely populated 
outback in Australia, or the great ocean road stretching for thousands of 
kilometers, off-road lovers can always find their favorite place here. 
Recognition from Australasian consumers are a solid proof for the quality of 
the GWM pickup.

Since it was launched in overseas market, GWM pickup has always put safety in 
the first place, especially its outstanding performance in the smart safety. It 
shows the unremitting efforts of GWM in automotive future direction and its 
firm direction in safety improvement. In the future, GWM Ute will continue to 
lead the development of pickup in the world with the industry's benchmark in 
technological innovation.
