JAC Motors is a powerful Chinese state-owned automobile company and a serious player
The Chinese state-owned automobile company Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co., Ltd was established in 1990 on the basis of the Hefei Jianghuai Automobile Factory, which in turn was founded in 1964. We are talking about the car plant "Chianghuai", which became part of JAC Motors. Today, the manufacturer and the brand of the same name are well known to consumers in the Chinese market. The company exports cars to 100 countries around the world. Its capacities make it possible to produce 500,000 vehicles per year.
In the past, JAC Motors cars could be found on the Russian market under the TAGAZ brand. The expansion in the early 2000s was unsuccessful. A second attempt to offer products to Russian buyers in 2014 also failed.
The company is currently in the final stages of launching a new electric vehicle factory in China with Volkswagen.
