Great Wall Motors will launch an automatic version of its self-developed Hover H5 SUV at the 8th Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition, scheduled to be held in Guangdong Province between 21 and 27 December.

Chinese media reports said the vehicle would have a five-speed automatic coupled to a Lvjing 2.0VGT high-efficiency diesel engine.

It was launched earlier this year with a 2.4-litre Mitsubishi petrol engine and manual gearbox.
