FAW Jiefang is consistent on independent technology development and open cooperation. Driven by China's carbon neutrality target, the company is accelerating its new energy reformation by digging into commercial vehicles’ core new energy technology field and aiming to lead the commercial vehicle industry in China.
Energy conservation and environmental protection have become the mainstream trend among the entire auto industry, including commercial vehicles. Chairman of FAW Jiefang, Hu Hanjie, said that self-developing key technology is the only way to maintain a controllable and safe industrial and supply chain.
At the end of 2017, FAW Jiefang established a new energy vehicle production base in Qingdao, marking the start of developing a new intelligent and connected new energy vehicle platform for cabins and chassis.
In November 2019, FAW Jiefang unveiled a slew of battery-electric commercial vehicles, including food waste garbage truck, battery-powered carriage detachable garbage truck, and battery-electric sweeper truck.
In July this year, the company released its first smart power domain brand and set up four platforms, the G, the H, the E, and the F. Aside from the G platform, the other three platforms all achieved total coverage of new energy technologies, namely hybrid, battery-electric and fuel cell electric.
Notably, FAW Jiefang has launched 141 models of new energy commercial trucks in all sizes, successfully realizing the electrification of traditional trucks.
