Jinbei China Sales Figures & Recent Highlights

Jinbei was founded in 1989 as a joint venture between Brilliance Auto and Toyota. The company’s first vehicle was the Jinbei Haise, a licensed version of the Toyota Hiace. Jinbei has since expanded its product lineup to include a wide range of vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, MPVs, and commercial vehicles.

The brand’s most notable model is the Jiangnan TT, which became known for its striking resemblance to the Suzuki Alto. The TT became famous for being one of the cheapest cars available in China. Despite its low price, the Jiangnan TT was equipped with basic features and was primarily targeted at consumers in smaller cities and rural areas where there was demand for affordable transportation.

In 2009, Jiangnan Auto was acquired by Zotye Automobile, another Chinese automaker. After the acquisition, Zotye continued the production of the Jiangnan TT for some time but later shifted its focus to other models under the Zotye brand. Zotye’s acquisition allowed the company to leverage Jiangnan’s manufacturing capabilities and expand its product lineup.

While the Jiangnan TT’s low price was its main selling point, the car faced challenges in terms of perceived quality and safety, especially when compared to slightly more expensive competitors that offered better features and reliability. As the Chinese auto market evolved and consumers’ expectations grew, ultra-cheap vehicles like the Jiangnan TT struggled to maintain their appeal. Additionally, rising competition from other low-cost domestic brands further squeezed Jiangnan’s market position.
