SAIC merges and overhauls Naveco CV brands

February 25, 2009 - Fourteen months after it acquired Nanjing Auto, Chinese auto giant SAIC now has started its restructuring of Nanjing Iveco (Naveco), a commercial vehicle division of Nanjing Auto, said 21st Century Business Herald today.

The Naveco assets are handed over to SAIC's commercial vehicle business division. The Iveco and Guerin (Yuejin) brands will have separate departments for sourcing, quality control, and sales. This represents SAIC's independent double-brand strategy in the commercial vehicle segment just like it is doing in the passenger-car market. The joint venture SAIC-GM-Wuling has been a CV market leader in China.

Naveco can expand SAIC's CV market share and also support the Chinese auto giant's growth in the global market. Meanwhile, after the merger of Nanjing Auto into SAIC, it is also more possible for Iveco to have a larger platform for its operation in China, and the profits-making capability of Naveco has also boosted Iveco's confidence in this fast-growing market.

Back in May 2008, SAIC and Iveco unveiled their jointly developed first vehicle model -- Power Daily, which features the new generation the powerful 3.0L F1C engine and the second generation BOSCH common-rail electric injection system. As Iveco's Daily model specially designed for the Chinese market, Power Daily is expected to become the benchmark for China's future light commercial vehicles.

SAIC and Iveco began to cooperate in 2005 by establishing SAIC Iveco Commercial Vehicles Co Ltd., to produce commercial vehicles using Iveco's technology. The joint venture bought a 67% stake in Chongqing Hongyan Auto, one of China's leading trucks makers, to build another company making diesel engines.

Naveco aims to achieve a steady sales growth in the Chinese market by selling 25,000 Iveco trucks (up12.5%) and 52,000 Guerin trucks (up 10.1%) this year.

Nanjing Iveco electric light bus put into use

March 18, 2009 - Nanjing Iveco's electric light bus has been eventually put into practical use after around a year's R&D endeavor. Since last week, ten of these new energy vehicles featured with zero-emission and pollution-free functions have been used as the State Grid's official service buses.

Noticeably, this is the first time for the domestic auto industry to realize the volume production and practical application of electric light buses, the Beijing News reported today.

As the first China-made light commercial vehicle facilitated with total electric-driven technology, the Iveco electric light bus looks almost the same as the brand's common model. The very key difference lies in the energy it uses - the traditional diesel is replaced by renewable, zero-emission and pollution-free electric power.

Next to its environmental advantage, the Iveco electric light bus outperforms common light buses in energy-efficiency as well. For every hundred kilometers' driving the vehicle consumes approximately 40 KWH electricity, which is only equal to five liters' fuel consumption required by an ordinary passenger bus. And after recharging, the Iveco electric light bus is powered to drive for a 220-kilometer trip.
