China’s newest car maker Yangtze River Jialing Motor Manufacturing has applied for patent on a mid-size SUV that seems design-wise inspired by the Ford Flex. The vehicle seems about 5 meters long and will likely compete in the 80.000-130.000 yuan SUV market.

Sporty spare wheel and double exhaust. Yangtze River Jialing Motor Manufacturing is a somewhat mysterious company, it is likely a subsidiary of the ‘China Jialing Group‘, aka ‘China Jialing Industrial Corporation’, one of the biggest motorcycle manufactures in China with close ties to Honda. Earlier on we saw spy shots of a smaller SUV that will sell in the 60.000 to 80.000 range.

  1. Chuanjiang is not Changjiang: the name of the factory is Chongqing Jialing Chuanjiang Automobile Co. Ltd. This company is related with Weichai.

    Weichai Power Company Limited is a state-owned enterprise in Weifang, Shandong, China specialized in the research and development, manufacture and sale of diesel engines. Its products are used in vehicles, vessels and power generators.

    Weichai bought Chongqing Jialing Chuanjiang Automobile Co. Ltd., a company which produced trucks (Yuzhou YZ1040) since the 1980s, via a company named Chongqing Lokon (Longjiang) Light Auto Co. Ltd. Lokon belongs to the Chongqing Wanglong Group.

    The aim is to produce mpv, suv and pickup under the Weili (Vellome) brand.

    First car is a small SUV of the size of the Jinbei S30, formally registered as Yuzhou YZ6410.

  2. Hi Tycho and Eric:
    Since 2009, Weichai owns 80% of this company and created the name Jiachuan Auto from the contraction of the names Jialing and Chuanjiang.


    The logo apparently originated with Jialing motorcycle,


    so it will be interesting to see if it will be retained for these passenger car models, or Eric, whether a new one will emerge for the “Weili” brand line-up.

    Seems the latest acquisitions and mergers aren’t shrinking the total number of China carmakers much. 🙂

  3. This was pretty much a clean sheet design. Start with a blank drawing board and build a world class product from scratch. With passion. And world class engineering skills.

    This should be very special indeed.
