Hawtai Terracan Sales Figures

Hawtai Terracan

The Hawtai Terracan was made in China by the Hawtai-Hyundai joint venture. It was basically a Hyundai Terracan with some minor changes. It had a Hyundai badge on the front but Hawtai badges on the back. It was marketed as a Hawtai. The joint venture also made the Galloper.

The Hyundai Terracan was made in South Korea from 2001 until 2007. In China, the Hawtai Terracan was made from 2004 until 2012, with various facelifts and updates in between. The car we have here is an early pre-facelift example, made in China from 2004 until 2007.

The Hawtai Terracan never sold very well, mostly due to the diesel engines that dominated the lineup, at least until the 2.4 arrived. Passenger cars with diesel engines aren’t allowed in most Chinese city centers, so expensive diesel-powered SUVs rarely sell well. The area where I found this car is far outside the center area, so that’s okay. Sadly, ever stricter environmental regulations may soon spell the end for any Terracan anywhere in China.
