I.Current State

The automobile and autopart industry, the backbone industry of Jiangxi's economy, has formed a rather complete industrial chain integrating finished vehicles, chassis, engines, transmission system and other key components and a well-established industrial development structure headed by finished automobile manufacturers including Jiangling Motors Corporation, BAIC Changhe Auto and Hanteng Auto and supported by Nanchang Xiaolan Economic and Technological Development Zone, Nanchang State-level Economic and Technological Development Zone, Fuzhou National High-tech Industrial Development Zone and other autopart industrial bases. There are a dozen of well-known brands including JMC, Changhe, Transit, Landwind, Yusheng, Suzuki Beidouxing and Hanteng; the category of lightweight commercial vehicle takes a leading place nationwide with JMC commercial vehicles the top 5 bestseller and minibus top 1 bestseller nationwide. By the end of 2017, Jiangxi had an annual capacity of 1 million vehicles, an annual output of 603 thousand vehicles and an annual prime operating revenue at CNY 162.53 billion.

The new-energy automobile, one of the key industries of Jiangxi Province, has for 4 consecutive years contributed double output from the previous year. In 2017, Jiangxi sold 42 thousand new-energy automobiles, 1.3 times of that of the previous year and accounting for 5.4% of the national total. The annual capacity of new-energy automobiles totaled 100 thousand, double of that of the previous year. JMC New-energy, among others, sold 32 thousand automobiles, double of that of the previous year and placed top 5 nationwide, also JMC secured manufacturing qualification of new-energy passenger vehicles, 3 of its kind in China. Farasis is among the top 100 core electromobile component manufacturers in China, placed 2nd in battery category and 5th in sales of EV battery category.

II. Development Goals

To expand production of passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles and persistently improve the mass manufacturing and smart manufacturing capacity of passenger vehicles; to highlight the construction of low-emission high-efficiency energy-saving fuel engine manufacturing platforms and foster a number of autopart manufacturers with core advanced technologies, independent brands and R&D capacity. Priority would be given to develop new-type key assembly and system components as well as key components like automatic transmission, automotive electronics, etc.. In 2020, the local automobile and autopart industry is expected to contribute CNY 220 billion in prime operating revenue and an annual capacity of finished vehicles at 1.4 million.

Development goal of new-energy automobile industry: to secure the development trend of new-emery automobile industry and accelerate its development and market cultivation. In 2020, the annual output of new-emery automobile is expected to total 250 thousand and annual capacity at 500 thousand, the number of new-energy vehicles sold and used would amount to 100 thousand, capacity of EV lithium battery amount to 40Gwh, capacity of drive motor amount to 200 thousand and prime operating revenue come to CNY 50 billion. It’s expected one finished automobile manufacturer would achieve an annual sales revenue over CNY 10 billion and new breakthroughs to be made in ICVS development.

III. Industrial Distribution

Key areas: Nanchang, Jingdezhen, Jiujiang, Ganzhou, Shangrao and Fuzhou. Nanchang: to focus on the construction of automobile industrial area of Xiaolan Economic Development Zone, automobile industrial area of Changleng Industrial Park in Xinjian District and the bus export base of Nanchang State-level Economic and Technological Development Zone and vigorously develop compact SUV, high and medium-end pickup truck, lightweight bus, large and medium-sized bus and multi-purpose urban vehicles; as for autoparts, importance would be placed in developing DCT transmission, air suspension, high-efficiency environmentally-friendly motors, lightweight automobile materials and automotive electronics. Jingdezhen and Jiujiang: to focus on BAIC Changhe and fully explore the in-depth cooperation between Suzuki and BAIC to highlight the development of small and mini cars, urban SUV, MPV, lightweight trucks, low-emission high-efficiency and energy-conserving motor series and build up the BAIC south base integrating manufacturing, supply, sales and R&D of finished vehicles and motors. Ganzhou: to urge the accelerated development of lightweight trucks and special vehicle manufacturers and facilitate the development of Getrag, Qunxing Machinery, Jingwei CAD/CAM and other leading autopart manufacturers, to highlight the development of DCT and AT transmission and build up the transmission manufacturing bases. Shangrao: to step up the construction of Jiangxi bus manufacturing base focused on lightweight buses and large and medium-sized passenger vehicles with B-energy Shangrao Bus as the core driving force. To build automobile and autopart manufacturing bases with Hanteng Auto as the core driving force, attaching importance to development of compact SUV. As for autoparts, Hanteng Auto is expected to make breakthroughs in low-emission turbocharged engine while Tongxin Machinery is expected to make solid progress in the adaptability of motor camshaft. Fuzhou: to focus on development of medium-end pickup trucks, compact SUV and special vehicles with JMCJL as the core driving force. To settle down the transfer of autopart industry from developed areas in Fuzhou National High-tech Industrial Development Zone and its autopart industrial base and encourage JMC Chassis to enrich its product categories and expand production, build up well-known domestic chassis component manufacturing and purchasing base; to guide Rongcheng Machinery to improve the adaptability of its steering linkages assembly, steering lever arm assembly and joint assembly with mini vehicles and build up the mini vehicle steering system manufacturing base.                                    

As for new-energy automobiles, to improve its industrial chain focused on finished vehicles and key components including batteries, motors and electronic controls. As for finished automobiles, to focus on the construction of 5 manufacturing bases known as One Core and Four Areas with the core in Nanchang and four areas in Ganzhou, Shangrao, Jiujiang and Pingxiang respectively; to build a power battery industrial base headed by ternary batteries and LiFe batteries and the industrial competence of Ganzhou, Yichun, Fuzhou, Xinyu and Ganjiang New Area; to facilitate the development of drive motors with Yichun as the core driving force and Ganzhou the collaborator; to develop finished vehicle controllers, drive motor controllers with Nanchang and Shangrao at the core. To encourage JMC, BAIC Changhe, Hanteng and other major manufacturers to reinforce the R&D of ICVS by working with famous domestic internet, information communication and AI enterprises.
