HAVAL Jolion HEV: The Affordable Compact SUV That Brings Hybrid Motoring to the Masses

HAVAL South Africa is expanding their hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) product offering with the launch of the self-charging hybrid electric HAVAL Jolion HEV. This affordable compact SUV is set to make hybrid motoring more accessible and allow more South Africans to benefit from this innovative powertrain configuration, which offers notable benefits both in terms of performance and fuel economy.

The Jolion HEV is differentiated from the rest of the Jolion range by LED Premium Vision headlights and fog lights that now feature blue accents, a standout diamond front grille, a redesigned front bumper, silver roof rails that mimic its natural lines, flared rear brake lights, a sporty rear diffuser and dual vent rear spoilers. 17 or 18-inch sports alloy wheels round off the package, depending on the specification grade. All these features combine to deliver a visual experience that is stylish, distinctive and bold.

The Jolion HEV features a 1.5-litre hybrid drivetrain that combines a petrol engine with an electric motor. Sophisticated power balancing allows the vehicle to operate solely on electric power or through a combination of the electric motor and the internal combustion engine. During normal driving, when certain parameters are met, pure electric power is seamlessly activated. Once increased speed and acceleration is required, the internal combustion engine is activated and supplies extra power.

The Jolion HEV can seamlessly transfer between configurations including EV, Series Hybrid, Parallel Hybrid and Regeneration depending on the driving conditions and driver input. A Dedicated Hybrid Transmission (DHT) combines the outputs of the internal combustion engine and the hybrid system, resulting in a total power output of 140kW and 375Nm. Unique for this segment and for hybrid vehicles is a performance inspired launch control system that facilitates rapid acceleration from standstill. The HAVAL Jolion HEV is capable of using as little as 5.0 litres per 100km, taking fuel consumption to a previously unimagined level.

The interior offers ample legroom for all passengers and generous boot space. Heated front seats, a six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat and a four-way mechanically adjustable front passenger seat ensure optimum comfort. Premium, soft touch materials and a sophisticated, modern design create a cabin that leaves nothing to be desired.

In the interests of safety, all HAVAL Jolion HEV models feature an Electronic Stability System, Traction Control, ABS and EBD. Passenger safety is ensured thanks to dual front, side and curtain airbags. All models are also fitted with Anti-Roll System and Secondary Collision Mitigation, Uphill and Downhill Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Rear Parking Sensors.


The HAVAL Jolion HEV is sold with a 5 year/ 60 000km service plan, a 5 year/100 000km warranty and an 8 year/150 000km hybrid battery warranty.
