2011/04/25

Summary

 In China, the government has rapidly been enhancing and preparing the dissemination and expansion of the new energy vehicle business as part of China's national strategy in recent years. The Chinese government is scheduled to announce plans for the development of a new energy vehicle industry soon.

 In the draft, China aims to be the largest seller of new energy vehicles in the world in 2020. Specifically, it targets ownership of 5 million new energy vehicles (PHEV, EV, FCV, etc.) by 2020. In addition, it aims to produce and sell 15 million energy-efficient vehicles such as HEV (including fuel-efficient gasoline vehicles) a year, aiming to be the world leader.

 In order to achieve the target, the Chinese government will contribute a total of 100 billion RMB during the next ten years until 2020 for the development of related industries. It is said to be intending to mainly promote the development of EVs, aggressively.


 The following report outlines the business plans and model plans for new energy vehicles (PHEV, EV, FCV, etc.) in its own-brand passenger car business by six Chinese private equity-backed OEMs - Chery Automobile, BYD Auto, Brilliance Automobile Group, Jianghuai Automobile Group (JAC), Geely Holding Group, and Great Wall Motor.


 For details of the HEVs, EVs, and FCVs passenger car plans by six Chinese state-owned OEMs (SAIC Motor Corp., Dongfeng Motor Corp., China FAW Group, Changan Automobile Group, BAIC Group, GAC Group [Guangzhou Automobile Group]), please refer to "China's major OEMs plan their own-brand HEVs, EVs, FCVs (1) " (No. 961 dated on April 13, 2011).


(Note) "New energy vehicle" in the government's draft means "Clean Energy Vehicle" in Japan, which mainly includes PHEVs, EVs, and FCVs. Including Micro HEVs which represent vehicles with an idle reduction system, HEVs are classified as energy efficient vehicles.

Chery Automobile to additionally introduce PHEV in 2011, targeting to sell 50,000 HEVs/EVs a year by 2015

 Chery Automobile intends to market HEVs, PHEVs, EVs, and FCVs as new energy vehicles.

 Concerning HEVs and EVs, the company plans to start production of HEV/PHEV, which improves fuel consumption by about 20% compared to the same type base model, and an EV and a PHEV (Range-Extended version) that uses its own lithium-ion drive battery in 2011. In addition, it will form an alliance with State Grid, which is China's state-run company that invests in, builds, and manages an electric power transmission system, on the development of EVs that come with a replaceable secondary drive battery, and with plans to start test runs in the first half of 2011.

 Further, Chery Automobile says that it is targeting the sales of 50,000 HEVs/EVs (2.5% of the company's total vehicle sales volume)a year by 2015. Regarding the development of technology, the company intends to promote volume-production of HEVs/EVs including micro HEVs (which comes with ISG) that improves fuel consumption by 30% compared to the same type base model by 2015.


 As for FCVs, it won approval and permission for production of a volume-production model, "Eastar FCV," from the government in 2010, moving up the original plan to announce a volume-production model by 2012.


 Incidentally, Chery Automobile's four models - Chery A5 BSG, A5 ISG, S11 (QQ3 EV), S18 EV (Riich M1 EV) - were already selected as the government's recommended energy-saving and new energy vehicles in September 2009.

BYD Auto has started marketing PHEV and EV in China and will begin export to Europe and the US in 2012

 BYD Auto intends to market two models, PHEV and EV, as new energy vehicles.

 In China, the company already started marketing of a PHEV sedan (F3DM) and an EV crossover (e6) for taxis earlier than other companies at the end of 2010. However, the company originally targeted the sales of 1,000 (EVs/PHEVs) in 2010, but only sold 480 (including 417 units of the F3DM and 63 units of the e6). In 2011, it shifted from a strategy in which it mainly sells them for individual customers to the promotion of the EV solution business for urban public transportation system centered on the e6 (EV Crossover) and the K9 (EV large bus).


 In April 2010, the company set up BYD North American Sales Headquarters in California, USA. By preparing 10 dealers in North America by the end of 2012, it intends to foster the US market as a major overseas market for new energy vehicles. In addition, as of May 2010, the company will begin the construction of a KD plant in North America, for which Los Angeles is a likely candidate, as early as in 2011.

 In Europe, the company will start importing and selling models designed for Europe including the e6, the S6DM, and the F6DM in 2012 with Spain, the Netherlands, and France as the main markets.

 Jianghuai Automobile Group intends to market EV/HEV/PHEV as new energy vehicles.

 Under the 5-year business plan announced in December 2010, the company will increase its production capacity for new energy passenger cars to 100,000 a year by the end of 2015, targeting sales of 80,000 per year (5% of the group's total annual sales of vehicles). It mainly intends to make models such as the Yueyue and the Tongyue as base models for EVs, and the Heyue and the Binyue as those for HEVs.

 In July 2010, the company already initiated small-lot production of the Tongyue EV passenger car, targeting to sell 2,000 in 2011 (It sold 585 from January to March 2011).

 In a related move, in August 2010, Jianghuai Automobile Group signed an agreement on an alliance for new energy vehicle joint venture with HKMC Equity Investment Fund Management *(Note). The fifty-fifty joint venture company (located in Hefei, Anhui prov.) is planned to have an annual production capacity for 1 million new energy vehicles by 2018. The company will also make a power system and a lithium-ion drive battery in-house.


*(Note) HKMC Equity Investment Fund Management is a subsidiary of the US-based Hybrid Kinetic Motors Corp. and was established at the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) in January 2010 (capitalized at USD2 million,  total investment of USD2.8 million). Hybrid Kinetic Motors Corp. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Hybrid Kinetic Group Limited, which is led by Yang Rong, a former Chairman of Brilliance Automobile Group.

Great Wall Motor to introduce its first EV passenger car in 2012

 Great Wall Motor intends to market three models - EVs, HEVs, and PHEVs - as new energy vehicles.

 The company will invest about 1 billion RMB to develop an EV and will introduce its first EV passenger car on a trial basis in 2011, planning to launch it in 2012.

 In 2011, the company will introduce 10 new models including new energy vehicles such as EV, HEV, and PHEV.


 Incidentally, in order to promote the energy-saving vehicle business, the company signed a memorandum of understanding on a strategic alliance with UK-based Ricardo in March 2011. Ricardo mainly provides technology for gasoline engines and 6-speed DCT for vehicles and the management know-how.
