Re: Baotou Bei Ben Heavy-Duty Truck

Baotou Bei Ben appears to be North-Benz by another name. The Mercedes cabs are the same and so is the logo.
The PLA is equipped with a small number of the North Benz 2629A heavy duty truck built by North-Benz heavy-Duty Truck Co. Ltd, a joint venture formed by Inner-Mongolia First Machinery Group Corporation (FIRMACO) of Baotou, Inner-Mongolia; China North Industries Corporation (NORINCO); and DailmerChrysler. The truck is based on the Mercedes-Benz NG-80 truck originally introduced in the mid-1980s. The truck mainly serves as heavy cargo and weapon equipment carriers in the PLA.

China signed the agreement with Daimler-Benz (now DailmerChrysler) to co-produce Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty trucks locally under license in September 1988. The deal aimed to fulfil the growing demands for high-performance heavy-duty trucks from both military and civil sectors in China then. FIRMACO, a NORINCO subordinate company, was chosen as the main Chinese contractor. The actual technology transfer however took place at rather slow pace. The truck assembly line was not finished until 1995, and the joint venture Baotou North-Benz Group Corporation was only formed in 1996 for the marketing of the Chinese-built North-Benz truck.

Although the truck manufacturing facility at North Benz has the capacity to build 6,000 trucks per annum, the annual production of North-Benz truck has been around 500~600 trucks over the past few years, mainly due to its expensive prices and incompetent marketing. Early production variants of the truck still relied on some German-made parts. Following the end of the co-production agreement with DailmerChrysler in 2003, North-Benz continued to build the truck with 100% Chinese-made parts.

Hyundai and Baotou Bei Ben commercial vehicles JV

Hyundai Motor Co said on Sunday it had signed an initial agreement to create a commercial vehicle joint venture with China's Baotou Bei Ben Heavy-Duty Truck Co Ltd with a total investment of $400 million.

The 50-50 venture with the Chinese truck maker will be launched next year, taking over Baotou Bei Ben's existing large truck business that has an annual capacity of 40,000 units, the South Korean carmaker said in a statement.

Hyundai will initially focus on heavy duty trucks with a sales target of 100,000 units in China by 2014 and gradually increase investment to expand its business to include the full line-up of commercial vehicles.

"Entering China's commercial vehicle market is essential in establishing Hyundai's reputation as the most comprehensive car manufacturer in the world's largest auto market," Choi Han-young, vice chairman in charge of Hyundai's commercial vehicle division, said in the statement.

"Our business in China will play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our global sales target of 200,000 units in commercial vehicles by 2013."
Choi told Yonhap news agency that Hyundai would differentiate with low-price, quality products in the Chinese market from competitors such as German truckmaker MAN and Volkswagen's Swedish unit Scania.

Hyundai was planning to enter U.S. commercial vehicle market within two to three years via a joint venture, before its foray into Europe, he was quoted as saying.
