SHANGHAI - November 6, 2007:
source : the auto channel. com

Chongqing Lifan Group, one of China’s leading motorcycle makers, said its Lifan 520 sedan produced by the company’s assembly line in Russia has passed the Europe R-94 crash test.

The test was performed by Russia's national collision experimental laboratory. The sedan's four doors can open easily after the car runs at 35 mph (56 km/h) into a deformable wall. Dual front airbags and side airbags work well and the dummy hasn't been damaged. The passenger compartment held its shape very well and there was no leak in the fuel tank.

Lifan said that this result has paved the way for Lifan’s expansion plan in Russian market. Lifan has established an assembly line this year and the company plans to sell 8,000 vehicles in Russia next year and 40,000 units annually by 2010, according to Mao Gang, general manager of an imports and exports unit under Lifan Group.

In August this year, Lifan Group signed a $160 million supplying contract with Russian company AutoMir. Under the contract, AutoMir will purchase 30,000 sedans in KD forms from Lifan in the next three years.

Another good news for Lifan.

Shortly after it passed a Russian crash test, the Chongqing-based Chinese automaker Lifan Auto has secured a $160 mln worth auto parts export contract with Russian partner AutoMir, local newspaper Chongqing Evening News reported today.

This is the largest single auto parts export contract that a Chinese company has ever signed with a Russia company, the newspapers said. Under the contract, Lifan Auto will export 30,000 sets of Lifan 520 knock-down auto parts in the next three years.

Lifan has established an assembly line in Russia this year and the company plans to sell 8,000 vehicles in Russia next year and 40,000 units annually by 2010, according to Mao Gang, general manager of an imports and exports unit under Lifan Group.

Earlier this month, Lifan 520 sedan produced by the company's assembly line in Russia has passed the Europe R-94 crash test.

The test was performed by Russia's national collision experimental laboratory. The sedan's four doors can open easily after the car runs at 35 mph (56 km/h) into a deformable wall. Dual front airbags and side airbags work well and the dummy hasn't been damaged. The passenger compartment held its shape very well and there was no leak in the fuel tank.

Lifan, a Chongqing-based private motorcyle maker, obtained automobile production license from government in 2005. By October this year, the company has sold 40,000 vehicles and it expected to sell 50,000 this year. Lifan has set up assembly lines in Russia, Vietnam, Egypt, Iran and Ethiopia.

China's Lifan Seals $160 Million Vehicle Export Contract with Russia

Lifan is ready to invade Europe.

Chongqing Lifan Group, one of China's leading motorcycle makers, have passed E mark accreditation from Netherland authorities, which indicates Lifan’s products can enter 18 European countries.

Lifan said every aspect of Lifan 520 car, including exterior parts such as lamps, tires, glasses, horns, and seats can well meet the requirements of the regulations.

The E mark is based on ECE regulations issued by the Geneva-based Economic Commission for Europe. It is the proof of compliance with directives (laws) required by the European Union. The Council of European communities in Brussels issues these directives and all members must accept approved products.

It allows auto manufacturers to demonstrate to existing and potential customers that their product meets the applicable automotive EMC requirements. Some of the automotive "extras", such as car stereos, alarm systems, power sunroofs, mobile phone adapters, navigational systems and high-mounted stop lamps, are also under scrutiny for EMC.

It can also simplify the certification process for the manufacturer significantly, i.e. if all relevant electronic and electric systems have been individually approved, no further testing is required on the vehicle. Additionally, components which are covered by the Automotive EMC Directive and comply with the EMC Directive 89/336/EEC may be marked with the CE Marking.

Earlier this month Lifan announced that its Lifan 520 sedan produced by the company's assembly line in Russia has passed the Europe R-94 crash test. The company also announced a $160mln worth export contract with Russian partner AutoMir after it passed the Russia crash test.

More on the 160 million USD Lifan - Russia deal

From China Car Times, Dec. 17, 2007

More on the 160 million USD Lifan - Russia deal

Previously on China Car Times we talked about the 160 million dollar deal that Lifan recently struck with Russian group, AVTOMIR in Moscows presidential hotel. The deal between the two companies was deemed important enough for Chinese Prime Minister, Wu Yi, to be in attendance.

The deal was that AVTOMIR would purchase 30,000 CKD vehicles from Lifan over the next 3 years. Russia is currently holding a ‘Chinese Year’ in Russia (a cultural exchange where a country of choice is promoted in Russia for a year)

Lifan have created several partnerships with overseas companies over the past few years, including car factories in Ethiopia, Vietnam, Russia, and Iran, each country has its own Lifan sales service. Lifan plans to build factories in Western Asia, South America, South Asia, and Southern Africa over the next few years.
