Great Wall Motor has entered Indonesia, one of the largest markets in Southeast Asia, as the largest SUV and pickup truck maker in China revs up its global expansion.

The carmaker said in a statement on Friday that it now has a presence in every major market in the ASEAN countries except East Timor.

The Baoding, Hebei province-based carmaker started its foray into the ASEAN region in 2021. It offers a complete lineup of electric vehicles, hybrids and plug-in hybrids in the ASEAN countries.

Statistics from GWM shows that the company's overseas sales reached 27,007 units in July this year, representing year-on-year growth of 83.6 percent.

July marked the fifth consecutive month GWM's overseas sales had exceeded 20,000 units. Its overseas sales from January to July totaled 150,937 units, up 94.7 percent year-on-year.
