"This is indeed a proud moment for us as we are on the verge of entering the Indian automotive market. We are excited at the limitless possibilities that lay ahead as India is an important market for us," GWM Chairman Wei Jianjun said in a statement.

The company aims to set new benchmarks in the Indian automobile industry and hope to create an everlasting relationship with the discerning Indian customer, he added.
