Summary

東風汽車グループの販売台数

 Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter Dongfeng Motor Group), which changed its name from Dongfeng Motor Corporation in November 2017, is headquartered in Wuhan, Hubei Province, and is the second largest government-affiliated automotive group company in China in terms of the number of vehicles sold (2018). Although the Dongfeng Motor Group steadily increased its annual sales volumes every year in the past, its sales volumes have been trending downwards since 2017, falling 7.0% in 2018 year-over-year (YoY) to 3.783 million units, the same level as that in 2014. Approximately 70% of the group's sales are dependent upon its foreign equity joint ventures.

 Against the backdrop of reforms and reorganizations of state-owned enterprises being promoted at the national level, the three Chinese government-affiliated companies China FAW Group Co., Ltd. (FAW Group), the Dongfeng Motor Group, and Chongqing Changan Automobile Co., Ltd. (Changan Automobile), signed a strategic framework agreement in December 2017. Looking to the future, the 3 OEMs plan to construct a collaborative system focusing on areas such as technological innovation, supply chain, overseas expansion, and new business models.


 At the beginning of 2019, the Dongfeng Motor Group established its twin 400 targets (operating income of CNY 40 billion, and sales volumes of 4 million units), but is unlikely to overcome the obstacles to achieve those targets because the number of vehicles it sold in the January to October 2019 timeframe fell to 2,851,000 units, reflecting a decline of 6.1% YoY. Sales of Dongfeng’s foreign equity joint ventures, with the exception of Dongfeng Honda Automobile Co., Ltd., have also fallen YoY. In the midst of these financial circumstances, on December 18, 2019, Groupe PSA (PSA) announced that it would be merging with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA). Dongfeng Motor Group agreed to sell a part of its shares in PSA resulting in a reduced equity stake in PSA; PSA is one of the major shareholders in Dongfeng PSA (Dongfeng Peugeot-Citroën Automobile Co., Ltd.).

Sales overview: Foreign equity joint ventures are sluggish, and 2019 group sales are below the target of 4 million units

 Although the Dongfeng Motor Group steadily increased its sales volumes every year in the past, its sales volumes have been declining since 2017, and in 2018 sales fell by 7.0% YoY to 3.783 million units, the same level as that in 2014. Sales of Dongfeng’s foreign equity joint ventures accounted for about 70% of its total sales volume in the 2016 to 2018 timeframe. As a result, the decline in sales of its foreign equity joint venture OEMs negatively impacts the entire Dongfeng Group's overall sales.

 Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Co. (Dongfeng Nissan), which has the highest sales volumes within the group, sold 1.317 million units in 2018, accounting for 34.8% of the entire group’s total sales. Despite the introduction of the completely remodeled, all-new Sylphy and Altima, Dongfeng Nissan sales volumes during the January to October 2019 timeframe have remained unchanged from the previous year.

 Although its other foreign equity joint ventures have struggled, Dongfeng Honda, which has been steadily increasing sales, enjoyed strong sales of its global models, the CR-V and Civic, showing a 14.7% increase YoY in the January to October 2019 timeframe to 648,000 units. In October 2019, Dongfeng Honda released its first EV, the X-NV.

 Renault is expanding its model portfolio and launched the City K-ZE compact pure-electric SUV manufactured by eGT New Energy Automobile Co., Ltd., and continues to accelerate its electrification efforts. Dongfeng Peugeot-Citroën Automobile Limited (Dongfeng PSA), whose sales volume has been declining significantly, has announced a restructuring plan and is working to revitalize both its manufacturing and sales operations. As a result of the merger of PSA and FCA announced on December 18, 2019, Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd., a major shareholder of PSA, decreased its shareholding in PSA from 12.23% to 4.5%.

In 2016 Dongfeng PSA sold 600,000 vehicles, but in 2018 its sales volumes fell to 253,000 units. Sales in the January to October 2019 timeframe have decreased by 54.8% YoY to 101,000 units, with the decline in sales showing no signs of stopping.

 In light of these circumstances, in September 2019 the company announced a revitalization plan targeting an annual sales volume of 400,000 units by 2025. Dongfeng PSA plans to launch 14 new models in the 2020 to 2022 timeframe. The introduction of eco-friendly vehicles has been slow compared to other companies, but Dongfeng PSA plans to launch four electrified models in 2020, which will begin with the brand's first electric SUV, the e-2008, that was introduced at the Guangzhou Motor Show in November 2019. On the sales distribution side of its operations, to reduce investment and operating costs at dealerships, the company opened its first dealership in September 2019 that will in parallel be distributing vehicles for both the Peugeot and Citroen brands.

 On December 18, 2019, the merger of PSA and FCA was announced. Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd. is a major PSA shareholder, and its stake in PSA will decline from 12.23% to 4.5% in the new company after completion of the merger. According to the merger announcement, the business of Dongfeng PSA will be extended until 2037, and Dongfeng PSA will export PSA models, and release new brands and new models.

Revitalization plan ・ In September 2019, Dongfeng PSA announced ‘the bottom line’ of its revitalization plan. The plan is divided into three phases, with the goal of selling 400,000 vehicles by 2025.
・ The goal of the first “stabilization” phase is to reduce its break-even point to 180,000 units or less and return its cash flow to profitability by the end of 2019. In the second “recovery” phase the company plans to sell 250,000 vehicles a year, with an even lower break-even point of 150,000 or less in the 2020 to 2021 timeframe. In the third “development” phase, Dongfeng PSA is targeting to sell 400,000 units annually in the 2022 to 2025 timeframe.
・ In addition, the company plans to launch 14 new models during the period from 2020 to 2022, as well as develop eco-friendly variants for all new models. There are three types of eco-friendly vehicles: EVs, PHVs (plug-in hybrids) and MHVs (mild hybrids). The company plans to sequentially launch 4 eco-friendly vehicles in 2020.
Peugeot and Citroen to be sold jointly ・ On September 30, 2019, to reduce investment and operating costs at dealerships, the company opened its first dealership that will in parallel be distributing vehicles for both the Peugeot and Citroen brands.
Established mobility service company ・ In January 2018, Dongfeng PSA signed an agreement to establish a joint venture to provide mobility services with the investment amount shared among Dongfeng Electric Vehicle Co., Ltd., Wuhan Electrical Automobile Demonstration Management Co., Ltd. (Wuhan EADM) and the Group PSA.
・ In September 2018, the company announced the launch of its brand Free2Move Carsharing service that will operated by its joint venture Fengbiao Carsharing Company. The model that will be launched into service is Dongfeng Fengshen's E30L compact EV, and the service in Wuhan will be initially launched with a fleet of 300 vehicles. Wuhan City plans to expand the fleet to 3,000 units.
・ In March 2018, Dongfeng Motor Group and Group PSA signed an agreement to form a financial leasing joint venture, capitalized at CNY 300 million. The equity sharing ratio of the JV is 50% for Dongfeng PSA, 25% for Dongfeng Motor Group, and 25% for PSA Finance Nederland D.V. The JV will develop mobility services using Dongfeng Citroen brand vehicles and DS Automobile brand vehicles.
・ In April 2019, the company will open an office in Beijing.

 

Dongfeng Liuzhou

 Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor Co., Ltd. (Dongfeng Liuzhou) is a joint venture that is 75% owned by the Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd. and 25% owned by the Guangxi Liuzhou Industrial Investment Development Group Co., Ltd. According to Dongfeng Liuzhou, the company sold 183,039 vehicles in 2018, 55,033 units of which were commercial vehicles. The two main brands of Dongfeng Liuzhou are the “Dongfeng Fengxing” brand, which sells passenger cars, SUVs, and MPVs, and the “ChengLong” commercial vehicle brand, which sells tractor trailers and freight vehicles. The Lingzhi, a top 10 best-selling MPV in the first half of 2019, is also a model of Dongfeng Liuzhou. Dongfeng Liuzhou, which offers a broad commercial vehicle model lineup, opened a commercial vehicle manufacturing site in the Liudong New District of Liuzhou City, Guangxi Province, and engaged in a project relating to the construction of an R&D center.

 On December 15, 2019, Dongfeng Fengxing brand announced that it is forecasting sales of 125,000 units in 2019. Also, its sales target for 2020 is 160,000 units. The company will be focusing on MPVs in its model lineup.

Establishment of commercial vehicle manufacturing site ・ In December 2017, Dongfeng Liuzhou held a line-off ceremony to commemorate the start of construction of the Liudong Commercial Vehicle Plant. The newly constructed Liudong Commercial Vehicle Plant will have a total site area of 3,191.5mu (about 316,512 square meters), with a first phase investment of CNY 2 billion and a future annual production capacity of 100,000 units (medium- and heavy-duty trucks).
Announced CV model with autonomous driving technology ・ In September 2019, Dongfeng Liuzhou and the Changsha Intelligent Driving Institute (CiDi) released the Chenglong T7, a heavy-duty truck equipped with jointly-developed Level 4 autonomous driving technology. In addition, Dongfeng Liuzhou and CiDi also signed a strategic alliance agreement to jointly promote the manufacture of intelligent trucks and the popularization of intelligent drives in commercial vehicles.

 

Dongfeng Sokon (DFSK)

 Dongfeng Sokon Motor (DFSK) is a finished vehicle manufacturer focused on the production of small vehicles, which was established in 2003 as a 50:50 joint venture between the Dongfeng Motor Group and the Chongqing Sokon Industry Group Co., Ltd. According to the 2019 first half (H1) financial report released by DFSK, the company was ranked 10th in sales of own-brand passenger cars in 2018. DFSK operates 4 plants and is currently relocating its No. 1 Plant in Shiyan to the Shiyan Economic and Technological Development Zone in Hubei Province, which will have an annual production capacity of 200,000 units, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021.

 In September 2019, it was announced that the Dongfeng Motor Group would acquire an additional 50% stake in Dongfeng Sokon (DFSK). After the transaction has been completed, Dongfeng will own 100% of Dongfeng Sokon, making it a wholly-owned subsidiary. In parallel, the Dongfeng Motor Group will acquire a 25.8% stake in Sokon (Chongqing Sokon Industry Group Co., Ltd.).

EV production activities in Indonesia ・ PT Sokonindo Automobile, which manufactures DFSK brand vehicles in Indonesia, again on December 16, 2019 urged the Indonesian government to clarify its regulations related to electric vehicles in Indonesia.
・ Although PT Sokonindo Automobile is capable of manufacturing EVs at its plant in Chikande, Indonesia, the company believes it is too early to decide whether to manufacture EVs because of a number of uncertainties that may affect production such as the spread of infrastructure and the market reaction to EVs.
Export of light commercial vehicles from Indonesia to the Philippines ・ In September 2019, DFSK announced a partnership with local QSJ Motors to sell the Indonesian-made light commercial vehicle Super Cab in the Philippines. The company will supply left-hand drive vehicles produced at the Chikande plant in Indonesia to the Philippines as CBUs (completed built units).

Production forecast by LMC Automotive: Dongfeng's own brand production to decline 612 thousand units in 2022

(LMC Automotive, October 2019)

東風汽車グループの自主ブランドの生産予測

  According to LMC Automotive's production forecast (Octber 2019), Dongfeng's own brand production is expected to be 624 .8 thousand units in 2019, down 18.4% year-over-year (y/y). After that, production is expected to decline further in 2020. In the medium-term, Dongfeng production will level off, to 611.5 thousand units in 2022.

  China’s Personal Vehicle production improved in August, with a drop of only 0.7% to 1.66 mn units, recovering from the double‐digit declines seen in recent months. LCV output fell by a slight 0.9% to 0.24 mn units. Light Vehicle output in the month was down by 0.8% YoY, on total build of 1.90 mn units. This indicates an improvement given that overall Light Vehicle production for the January‐August period declined by 12.5% YoY. Now that vehicle stocks have been unwound, OEMs no longer bear the burden of bloated inventories and are preparing to resume normal production rhythms.

  The CADA inventory index stood at 1.51 months at the end of August, 13.7% lower than in July, and 9% lower than in the same month of 2018. Inventory levels fell closer to the warning line of 1.5 months again from July, indicating that the stocks added in July were run down during August.

  Once one of China’s leading LCV manufacturers, Dongfeng has seen its sales dwindle in the face of fierce competition from rival companies such as Wuling, Foton and JAC. Following a management reshuffle, however, Dongfeng is now committed to returning to its former glory.

  Dongfeng’s main challenge at present is the need to give its subsidiaries greater autonomy to allow them to be more dynamic in terms of market performance, while simultaneously strengthening the integration of resources across the group to avoid internal competition.
