GWM senior leaders and industry experts attended the event, including: Meng Xiangjun, GWM Rotating President; Mu Feng, GWM Vice President of Commodity Strategy&Research and Development; ShanHongyan, GWM Vice President of Research and Development, and Song Dongxian, GWM Vice President of Technology.
"L.E.M.O.N. DHT" has made its global debut
"L.E.M.O.N. DHT" is a highly integrated, high-efficiency, multi-mode petrol-electric hybrid system with dual-motor hybrid technology to achieve an all-speed and all-scenario perfect balance between high efficiency and high performance. The release of "L.E.M.O.N. DHT" is another embodiment of GWM's actively practicing the national development strategy for new energy. It is also a high-quality achievement of GWM to break the technical monopoly of the joint venture brands and show the excellent strength of "Science and Technology of GWM", which will create great value for the sustainable and healthy development of China's new energy industry and bring better mobility experience to global users.
One system with two architectures and three assemblies is a perfect balance of power and fuel consumption
Mu Feng, GWM Vice President of Commodity Strategy&Research and Development, explains the technical strategy of "L.E.M.O.N. DHT"
"L.E.M.O.N. DHT" is the world's leading high-efficiency and high-performance hybrid scheme, covering almost all mobility scenes such as medium-low speed mobility on urban roads, long-term parking, high speed/urban ring roads, etc., which can bring users lower fuel consumption, stronger power and more comfort. The technology is forward-looking and advanced, which is embodied in the "1-2-3", a hybrid system with two power architectures and three power assemblies.

One hybrid system refers to that "L.E.M.O.N. DHT" adopts dual-motor hybrid topological structure and has various working modes such as pure electricity, parallel-series connection, series connection, energy recovery, etc. Through intelligent switching of the control system, it can achieve an all-speed and all-scenario perfect balance between high efficiency and high performance.

Two power architectures refer to the HEV and PHEV power architectures derived from this, which are in response to different consumption needs. The HEV architecture focuses on ultra-low fuel consumption on urban roads and instantaneous acceleration capability on medium-high speed roads, with a combined efficiency of power system of above 50% and combined fuel consumption of HEV powered A-class SUVs as low as 4.6L/100km; The PHEV architecture offers the industry's highest performance with a pure electric range of up to 200km, relieving the "range anxiety". In addition, in actual tests, taking B-class SUVs adopting HEV architecture as an example, compared with fuel oil products, the rate of fuel saving can reach 35-50%, and the 0-100km/h acceleration time can be significantly shortened by 1.5s to only 7.5s, achieving the double wins on fuel consumption and the power.

Three power assemblies refer to the "1.5L+DHT100" and "1.5T+DHT130" power assemblies under the two architectures of HEV and PHEV respectively; and the four-wheel power assembly of "1.5T+DHT130+P4" under the PHEV architecture. They correspond to different levels of products respectively, providing users with diversified choices.
Song Dongxian, GWM Vice President of Technology, explains the technical features of "L.E.M.O.N. DHT"
Based on this, "L.E.M.O.N. DHT" can serve users with different needs in different regions of the world. It has a high degree of flexibility, fully energizes GWM's globalization strategy, and once again interprets the concept of "user-centered" of GWM, so as to create value with technology.
GWM has broken the joint venture monopoly, leading the industry upward
GWM has always been adhering to the research and development philosophy of "precise input in pursuit of industry leadership", committed to continuous innovation in core technologies, leading the industry upward. From the launch of the three major technology brands of L.E.M.O.N., TANK and COFIS, to a new power assembly off the production line, to the global debut of "L.E.M.O.N. DHT", GWM has been taking concrete actions to fulfill its responsibilities as a Chinese auto brand.
Shan Hongyan, GWM Vice President of Research and Development, discusses the present and future of hybrid technology with four industry experts
"L.E.M.O.N. DHT" is designed and developed by GWM independently, and it has completely independent intellectual property rights. It has a total of 199 patents, including 80 core patents. Its release has completely broken the long-term monopoly pattern of joint venture brands in the field of hybrid technology, and set up a new bellwether of hybrid technology in China, to make the names of "Science and Technology GWM" and "Created in China" conform to reality. At the same time, it also means that GWM has ushered in a historic breakthrough in core technologies, which has further consolidated the technical foundation of GWM's development of globalization and become an important support for GWM's globalization strategy.
Shan Hongyan,GWM Vice President of Research and Development, shares the research and development process of "L.E.M.O.N. DHT"
In fact, GWM has been laying out the hybrid technology for two or three years. "L.E.M.O.N. DHT" is highly consistent with "increasing input in hybrid technology and expanding the hybrid market" emphasized in the recently released Energy Saving and New Energy Vehicle Technology Roadmap 2.0. This will bring leading and demonstration effect to the industry, encourage more Chinese automobile brands to continue to make efforts in the hybrid power field, promote the overall realization of hybrid power products in the market, indirectly drive the vigorous development of China's new energy industry, and contribute to the sustainable development of China and the world at large.
In the past 30 years, GWM has gone through all kinds of hardships and kept moving forward. It always insists on leading the brand by technology and driving its development by innovation. Today, the automobile industry is undergoing a reform in full swing. "L.E.M.O.N. DHT" reflects GWM's comprehensive consideration on the coordinated development of energy, environment, car life, and shows that GWM is at the forefront of global hybrid technology research and development. The release of "L.E.M.O.N. DHT" will push GWM to make further progress in its transformation into a global mobility technology company, and provide global users with higher-quality, more energy-saving and environmentally friendly, and more diversified mobility services.
