MA’ANSHAN, Anhui – CAMC Hualing Xingma Automobile Co., Ltd. plans to sell 30,000 heavy-duty trucks in 2014 to achieve an increase of 30 percent from 2013, according to a report on find800.cn, citing information from a company insider.
As revealed by the insider, CAMC Hualing sold 23,047 heavy-duty trucks in 2013, up 52.94 percent compared with the 15,100 units in 2012. The company almost fulfilled the 25,000 units sales target of 2013 and jumped one place from the No. 10 to No. 9 on the top 10 selling list.
Special-purpose vehicles of CAMC Hualing posted sales of more than 6,000 units in 2013, a bounce back from the 4,349 units in 2012.
The self-developed Hanma Power engine posted sales of 2,158 units, almost fulfilling the year’s target of 3,000 units.
The company exported 2,580 vehicles in 2013, up 68.84 percent from 2012. Trailers accounted for 33.5 percent of the total export volume and altered the previous single mode of mixer truck export.
The company is optimistic about the 2014 China heavy-duty truck market. According to the insider, except regions strictly implementing the State IV emissions standards like Guangzhou, Shanghai and Nanjing, most dealers of CAMC Hualing are still making inventory of State III products.
The promotion of Hanma Power engines remains the priority of CAMC Hualing, said the insider. The company plans to sell 6,000 to 7,000 Hanma engines in 2014 and further open the self-made parts market. Price of the State IV-compliant Hanma engine will be ¥20,000-¥30,000 ($3,210-$4,815) more expensive than the State III-compliant ones, said the insider.
The insider also disclosed that CAMC Hualing will launch new models in 2014, and implement new measures to improve sales and aftersales services.
