Hafei Motors (哈飞汽车) was founded in 1950 and based in Harbin, Heilongjiang province. It was a subsidiary of Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation (HAMC), a large military-airplane maker.

Originally, Hafei was just a repair and assembly shop, without much manufacturing. That changed in the mid-1990’s when Hafei signed a license agreement with Suzuki to manufacture the Suzuki Carry minivan.

Initially, Hafei sold these cars under the Songhuajiang brand, named after the Songhua River, which crosses Heilongjiang. Designation was HFJ. As Chinese carmakers are wont to do, Hafei soon made more variants of the Carry than Suzuki ever did. In 2002, the Songhuajiang name was dropped and Hafei Motors started selling under the Hafei brand.

In 1997 Hafei moved into real passenger cars with the Hafei Baili HFJ7090.
