Re: Kawei auto
Can you tell us what a JNQ license is?
And can we now expect the newcomer Huazi , holder of the much coveted license, to pick up and run with Kawei's unusually wide range of model offerings?
Going forward it also seems there should be some prospect of EV production in the transition.
Re: Kawei auto
"JNQ" is the enterprise code for Zhangjiagang Jiangnan Auto → Jiangsu Kawei Auto → Jiangsu Huazi.
An enterprise code is awarded by NDRC (earlier SDPC) to an enterprise when it receives its production license. When it passes from one enterprise to another during any transaction, e.g. acquisition, merger, or restructuring, the code might remain the same or be changed on application (the underlying license does not change). Several enterprises within a group, or somehow connected, may share the same enterprise code (like "BJ" for a number of BAIC-affiliated companies) even though production licenses may have been granted separately. Often we say "XX license" to refer to that production license and to the concerned enterprise by way of shorthand.
When vehicles (models) are granted type approvals, the 4-digit numeric code + any alphanumeric differentiator are prefixed with the enterprise code, such as "JNQ6463E5" where JNQ is the enterprise code, 6463 is the 4-digit numeric code, and E5 identifies a particular variant.
I don't know what Huazi will do with the production license, i.e. whether they'll continue to produce existing models, come up with new ones, or help some other unlicensed companies to produce their vehicles under OEM contracts. Huazi's plans are not public as of now. As far as EVs are concerned, that is entirely possible; even Kawei used to have a few electric vehicle models in its program.
