About FAW

FAW Group Corporation (simplified Chinese: 中国第一汽车集团; traditional Chinese: 中國第一汽車集團; pinyin: Zhōngguó Dìyī Qìchē Jítuán) is China's first automobile manufacturer. FAW is one of the "Big Five" Chinese automobile manufacturers along with Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, Chang'an Motors, and Chery Automobile. The company was established in 1953 with ranges such as Jiaxing mini MPVs, Xiali saloon cars and Hongqi luxury cars.

History

FAW Group started out in 1953 as First Automobile Works with assistance from ZIL and finished in 1956. During its first 30 years, its major product was Jiefang CA-10 medium truck, the first mass-produced automobile in China based on ZIS-150. A couple of years after the CA-10, they introduced the CA-30 6x6 army truck based on ZIL-157. The next generation of Jiefang truck, CA-141 rolled out in 1988. In 1991, FAW formed joint venture with Volkswagen and began to focus on car manufacture. Since then, it has formed joint ventures with other automobile giants such as Toyota and Mazda. In the same time, FAW maintained its own car brand Hongqi since 1958. Through purchasing and expanding, it has become one of top three automobile manufacturers in China. (The other two are Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation and Dongfeng Motor Corporation) By 2004, its car sales had passed 1 million units.
