China SUV King
In this Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017 photo, Wei Jianjun, chairman of Great Wall Motors Ltd. speaks during a press conference after attending a reception celebrating it sales passing the one million mark, at the Great Wall headquarters in Baoding in north China's Hebei province. A decade ago, Wei saw opportunity as the bulky vehicles started to shed their image as a farm tool. Wei cut back making sedans and poured resources into its fledgling line of Haval SUVs.
