GWM Tank 300 2023: petrol variant joins hybrid SUV in new Tank off-roader range


The petrol version of the Tank 300 has been confirmed for Australia, and it’ll be almost $10,000 cheaper than the hybrid variant 

GWM Australia has confirmed it will bring a petrol-powered Tank 300 to Australia to join the existing hybrid lineup. 

The petrol-powered Tank 300 range will enter with the entry Lux priced from $46,990 driveaway, while the top-shelf Ultra will cost $50,990 driveaway. 

That puts the petrol Lux variant at $9000 cheaper than its hybrid equivalent and the Ultra variant $10,000 more affordable than its hybrid counterpart
