Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Introduction
3 Attachment(s)
One of country's major automobile producer, the roots of the company goes back to 1958 when Beijing Auto Works introduced its Jingganghsan sedan soon to be followed by the Beijing CB 4, a V8-engined convertible and limousine.
This company was chosen to manufacture the locally designed 4wd jeeps which replaced outdated American off-roaders and the Russian GAZ. The Beijing BJ210 and its bigger brother, the BJ212 became the standard military vehicles for decades to come.
The first foreign JV of the company was set up in 1983, the Beijing-Jeep. Currently the Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, various Mitsubishi off-roaders are being manufactured at that company plus an updated version of the BJ212, called the City Cruier (BJ2020).
Currently the holding company is also engaged in another JV with the Korean Hyundai company. Altogether BAIC has 10 manufacturing plants in the country with a cumulated capacity of over 300,000 cars.

The Beijing Hyundai Motor Co. is a joint venture between Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co. and Hyundai Motor of South Korea. The memorandum for understanding was signed on February 2002. The Sonata sedan was scheduled to be produced from October, 2002 but the first car was completed only in the middle of November.
The Elantra was introduced at the end of 2003, while the Tucson joined in 2005. Beijing Hyundai is now one of the market leaders in China.

Beijing-Benz DaimlerChrysler Automotive Co Ltd (BBDC, in Chinese: 北京奔驰-戴姆勒·克莱斯勒汽车有限公司) is a 30-year joint venture between DaimlerChrysler and Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Corp. DaimlerChrysler holds a 50 percent stake in the venture.
The venture constructed a factory in Beijing in 2005 to assemble up to 25,000 Mercedes-Benz E- and C- Class sedans per year. The factory commenced operations in the beginning of 2006. A second new factory adjacent to it produces vehicles that were previously assembled by Beijing Jeep Company, the predecessor to the new joint venture. Jeep and Mitsubishi SUVs are assembled there.

BAIC in Mexico
Since May 2017, BAIC D20 and X25 have been assembled at a facility in Puente Nacional, a municipality in the state of Veracruz. It is a very small-scale operation, carrying out "large-unit" SKD assembly only. Reportedly, about 60 persons are employed and up to 10 BAIC cars are assembled per day alongside Foton trucks. The site, looking more like an indoor sports arena than an auto workshop, is owned by AT Motors and was previously an unused Agrocentro*.


*defined as "a center for the collection, cleaning, classification, processing, packaging and marketing of primary (agri)products"
