In the field of hybrid power, it has made breakthroughs in six core technologies, including ultra-high compression ratio Miller cycle and low-pressure EGR (exhaust gas recirculation).

In light of independent development, the brand value of “Hongqi” and “FAW TRUCKS” has always maintained the first place in Chinese autonomous cars and commercial vehicles. “Hongqi” L series has become the designated vehicle for major Chinese events, demonstrating the style of Chinese vehicles. The mid-size and heavy truck market share of “FAW TRUCKS” maintains top in the industry. The market positioning of “BESTUNE” is a medium and high-end brand in China’s mainstream automobile market. So far, new energy vehicles have already been mass-produced, with pure electric models such as Hongqi E-QM5, BESTUNE E01 and Hongqi E-HS9 already on the market.

The establishment and development of brand is indispensable to the core technology breakthroughs and independent innovation of key technologies. The first V-8 cylinder direct injection supercharging (“V8TD” for short) engine independently designed by China FAW has passed trials in 2021, reaching the leading level of similar models in the world. The domestic snowmobile jointly developed by China FAW and China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation has broken the long-standing monopoly of foreign brands in Chinese snowmobiles.

The sales volume exceeded 300,000 in 2021, a 63-fold increase compared with 2017. The brand “FAW TRUCKS” and other fist products have achieved “the best sales of the global heavy truck for a consecutive fifth year”. BESTUNE brand launches new products, so as to promote product modeling, upgrade and update experience, significantly improve the overall management quality of the enterprise and continue to consolidate and expand the development trend that ‘the landscape here is beyond compare’.”

Striving to be the “leader” of Global Automobile Industry by Expanding Overseas Market
