Because of this, HAVAL JOLION delivered a satisfactory result by virtue of the outstanding sales data in the first month after launch.

Innovation beginning, leading a new journey
To implement the communication strategy of "from pure preaching to emotional communication", story-telling were used to convey the theme of "love" and "gift" in the launching activity of HAVAL JOLION, showing the brand's emotional value by emotional marketing.
