International News GWM’s Tank 300 Achieves A 5-star Ancap Rating
The TANK 300 HEV has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by ANCAP, Australasia’s independent voice on vehicle safety.
The TANK 300 HEV was tested and assessed for its ability to physically protect occupants and other road users in an accident through the suite of destructive crash tests, its ability to prevent or minimize the severity of a crash with another vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist and through the range of active collision avoidance performance tests.
The overall results in 4 areas of performance for the TANK 300 HEV were:
Adult Occupant Protection 88%
Child Occupant Protection 89%
Vulnerable Road User Protection 81%
Safety Assist 85%
Showcasing bold exterior design backed with world-class 4WD technology, a luxurious interior and advanced technology, the Tank 300 is confidently positioning itself as a strong leader in its class.
“Normally, perceptions for such boxy 4x4s are more focused on the terrain performance. However, GWM’s TANK 300 can offer both performance and safety at the same time thanks to great engineering efforts put into the structure and tech level of this beast.” said Parker Shi, head of overseas division of GWM.
“GWM’s TANK 300 is launched with a hybrid model to show that the commitment of GWM’s electrification strategy rollout is solid.” Parker added.
Built on GWM’s global off-road platform, the Tank 300 has been designed to perform in all conditions with proven 4WD technology to take on challenging off-road adventures whilst in a cabin boasting with ultimate luxury and comfort.
The brand new Tank 300 is now on sale in global regions in the Middle East, China, Australia and other key markets, and will be hitting South African shores in 2023, offering buyers unbeatable levels of toughness, sophistication and top level safety.
