Automobile Industry


Automobile industry is the largest pillar industry in Jilin Province. Centering around the full vehicle production of FAW Group, a relatively complete automobile industry system, integrating the full vehicle manufacturing, auto parts and accessories production, and special vehicle production, has come into being. Focusing on production as well as research and development of full vehicles, an automobile base with great international competitiveness has also formed, composed of such key enterprises as FAW Group, FAW Volkswagen, and FAW Car. Hence, the new competitive edge follows. Product mix is undergoing optimization, which is to increase the proportion of marketable new models such as medium and high-end cars, SUVs and MPVS, with an eye on the steadily improved production capacity of full vehicles. Great efforts are being made to develop self-owned brand new energy vehicles, such as electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and special vehicles, including high-end fire trucks, school buses, recreational vehicles, special snowplows, refrigerator wagons, urban sanitation vehicles. Innovation and development of intelligent connected vehicles are also being conducted. Merger and acquisition of overseas companies, together with independent research and development, is expected to help overcome technical difficulties, improve the supporting capacity of important auto parts, and in turn form an auto parts industry cluster with an output value of 100 billion RMB.
