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. 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%.[7]

In late 2010, Jiangling released the first passenger vehicle of JMC under the newly launched JMC Yusheng sub-brand, the Yusheng S350 SUV.[8]

In 2013, JMC reorganised the heavy truck manufacturer Changan Taiyuan as a wholly owned subsidiary named JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle.[9]

JMC produces vehicles under the JMC, JMC Yusheng and Ford brands. It has assembly plants around Nanchang (at Qingyunpu and the Xiaolan Economic Zone).[10][11] JMC is also building a new energy vehicle plant (the Fushan plant) in the Xiaolan Economic Zone. JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle has a single assembly facility in Taiyuan.[10]
