When Chinese truckmaker FAW Jiefang talks sales numbers, the numbers are very, very BIG.
Last month, for instance, the company celebrated the production of its one-millionth truck. And that's of just one model!
The milestone for the heavy-duty Jiefang J6 makes it "a leading truck model in China," according to the FAW Group. Realistically, that could be THE leading model.
It took just 12 years from the launch of the J6, which is a tipper-spec model, to clock up a million of them.
FAW Jiefang, which started building trucks in 1956, now exports to 80 countries. It launched its seventh generation J7 model last year, aiming to compete with imported truck brands and enter the European market. The J7 has been judged the Chinese Truck of the Year 2019.
FAW Jiefang sold a record 205,000 trucks in the first six months of this year and is targeting 350,000 sales next year….and 500,000 by 2025.
