Jiangling Motors Corporation Limited, abbreviated JMC, is a Chinese automobile manufacturer. According to company and press reports, the largest shareholder of JMC is Jiangling Investment, a company controlled equally by the state-owned enterprises Changan and Jiangling Motors Corporation Group (JMCG).[2][3]



The history of Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC) can be traced to a truck repair shop opened in Nanchang in 1947 which operated under the name Nanchang Motors Repair Factory. A JMC predecessor started assembling vehicles in 1968. The company was granted the approval of Jiangxi Province Economic Restructuring Commission to be reorganized to establish a joint stock limited company on February 20, 1993. JMC A shares and B shares were listed on Shenzhen Stock Exchange on December 1, 1993, and September 29, 1995, respectively.[citation needed]

In the 1990s, Ford lost a bid against American rival General Motors for getting a joint venture deal with the Chinese manufacturer SAIC Motor.[4] In 1995, as part of its push for getting new Chinese partners, Ford acquired B shares equivalent to a 20% equity in JMC, becoming the second-largest shareholder.[5][6] In 1996, JMC began selling its products in overseas markets, initially Egypt and the Middle East.[6] As of 2021, the largest overseas market by volume for JMC is Chile.[7] In 1997, JMC and Ford started the production of their first joint product, the Ford Transit, with JMC supplying various key components (as engines and axles)[6] and Ford the design. In 1998, after JMC issued additional B shares, Ford upped its stake to 30%.[5][6] In 2013, Ford purchased more B shares, increasing its stake to over 30%.[8]

In late 2010, Jiangling released the first passenger vehicle of JMC under the newly launched JMC Yusheng sub-brand, the Yusheng S350 SUV.[9]

In 2013, JMC reorganized the heavy truck manufacturer Changan Taiyuan as a wholly owned subsidiary named JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle.[10] In mid-2021, JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle was sold to Volvo Trucks.[11] Volvo Trucks later terminated the acquisition agreement, leaving JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle as a JMC subsidiary. As of May 2023, JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle production and sales are suspended.[12]

In December 2021, JMC and Ford established a Shanghai-based joint venture focused on the production of passenger cars. The venture is called Jiangling Ford Motor Technology (Shanghai) Company (Jiangling Ford). JMC owns a 51% and Ford a 49% of its stake.[13]



Production bases


JMC produces vehicles under the JMC, JMC Yusheng, Ford and other brands and sub-brands. It has assembly plants around Nanchang (at Qingyunpu and the Xiaolan Economic Zone).[14] JMC also has a new energy vehicle plant (the Fushan plant) in the Xiaolan Economic Zone.[15]
