Introduction: On the afternoon of June 26, 2018, Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission director Xie Feng and his entourage visited Shanghai Wanxiang Automobile to provide guidance on the developing and manufacturing of new energy vehicles. CCI Holdings chairman William Chen, CCI Holdings vice president and Military Equipment Division general manager Wang Ge and Wanxiang Automobile deputy general manager Chen Guoliang accompanied the visit and were present at the research symposia.
Director Xie Feng and his entourage first visited Wanxiang's new energy vehicle manufacturing plant and equipment and facilities of newly produced vehicles, they also experienced the new energy bus and coach in person, and carefully investigated the vehicles' comfortability and safety.
During the subsequent symposia, vice president Wang Ge introduced Wanxiang's maintenance situation of Shanghai bus market and highlighted Wanxiang's "Nanny Service" for new energy vehicles and new energy coach monitoring platform which focuses on big data collecting, diagnosis, analysis, processing and service of new energy vehicles.
Director Xie Feng said that Wanxiang is famous for offering comprehensive and reliable maintenance service to solve the problem lacking of maintenance capability of some Shanghai bus companies. Facing the technological innovation of new energy vehicles and external competition, Director Xie Feng expressed his hope that Wanxiang could strengthen its technological innovation, continue to provide quality service and guarantee citizens' daily transportation; and continue to pay attention to national policy and regional policy of Shanghai, produce special bus for the senior and the disabled, etc., and implement its development, production and usage.
Made in China 2025 indicates that the new energy vehicle is one of the ten key areas that will be vigorously promoted to seek breakthrough development in the next 30 years. We should also develop new energy vehicles for the reason of environmental protection. New energy vehicles play an important role in both haze elimination and energy saving and environmental protection. They have become the core of next round competitive developments of automobile companies. How to focus resources on the quality of new energy vehicles to develop vehicles with high endurance power and high energy efficiency? It is an urgent task!
After wholly owning Wanxiang Automobile, the group makes full use of the market and capital advantage to help Wanxiang Automobile develop at full speed. On the original basis of providing Shanghai bus companies with new energy vehicles, Wanxiang continues to expand the domestic market of new energy buses, enter the market of new energy urban logistics vehicles, new energy sanitation vehicles, military-civilian integration vehicles and exported vehicles. Currently, Wanxiang Automobile is focusing on the development of "light-weight" structure of new energy vehicle's body to promote the updating to a new generation of urban buses. Bus projects characterized with new energies and new materials, which have been jointly launched by the leading enterprises of the new material industry, take the advantage of domestic mature technologies to open up new business, and possess fully-independent intellectual property rights. In addition to the current production line, the production lines of military-overhauled vehicles, new energy light logistics vehicles will be added. CCI Holdings and its subsidiary Shanghai Vientiane Automobile will give full play to independent innovation, strengthen its efforts in R&D, and pursue the quality development. They aim to integrate such composite materials as aluminum alloy and carbon fiber in the new-energy field, and bring more benefits to the public and fulfill its social responsibilities during "military-civilian integration".
