The assembly of Chinese vehicles began in Russia

The presentation of the company “JBC Rus” for the production of light commercial vehicles JBC for the Russian market was held in Moscow on January 16th. During the presentation there were shown three small - and medium trucks of series 1041, 1060 and 1090 to journalists, dealers, customers and potential partners.

All these models are aggregated with 4- cylinder diesel engine Deutz of ecological standard Euro-4, with a power of 104 and 120 horsepower (76 and 88 kW).

It was noted that there will be opportunity to equip cars with 4-cylinder 121- horsepower diesel engine Cummins in the future. There are several versions of the cabins, including Sleeper, for medium-duty trucks (line 1060 and 1090).

According to the CEO of “JBC Rus”, Michael Blokhin, the project realization of truck production in Russia will take place in two stages. It is planned to assemble 5000 cars per a year at the production facilities of the company “RosLada” (Syzran, Samara region) before 2015, where the installation of the necessary equipment was already finished. As stressed Mikhail Blokhin, it will be a full production cycle. There is already implemented assembly, welding, painting in the plant. Body panels, basic units and components will be ordered in China, and the batteries, tires and passive safety elements - from Russian producers. At the same time the frame and cabin are made in Russia.

The initial investment is $ 10 million.

The second stage (after 2015) provides a gradual build-up of production volumes to 20,000 vehicles a year, and a significant increase of the level of production localization. It will require the extension of shops and, as a consequence, more investments.

Company “JBC Rus” is a joint venture in Russia of a major Chinese manufacturer of commercial trucks and construction equipment Shenyang Junbei Vehicle Manufacturing, which since 2005 is expanding actively its presence in South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. In 2012, the company began to enter the Russian market.
