HEFEI, China - Thursday, August 13th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Leading the industry, JAC Motors’ export grew by 41% year on year during H1 2015. The company’s export size jumped to the third position in China with a total of nearly 40,000 units, undeterred by slow economic growth.

Although the global economy has risen moderately, the emerging and developing markets are recovering slowly. In H1 2015, China’s automobile export was predicted to decrease by 12% due to weak demand and the rising RMB exchange rate, which in turn will cause a reduction in the country’s automotive production.

In terms of truck export, JAC exported over 8,000 of its continuously optimized light-duty trucks, among which the high-end N series have accounted for up to 86% of all exported light-duty trucks. In markets such as Algeria and Chile, JAC trucks remained the largest Chinese exporting brand. JAC was also a leading automotive exporter in the Sout ... Read more »
