AutoBeta( Report--

On April 30, Huang Yong, party committee secretary and executive deputy general manager of FAW Toyota, was transferred to Dongfeng Company and promoted to deputy general manager. At present, Huang Yong's position has been updated on the official website of Dongfeng Automobile Group. So far, the leading group of Dongfeng Automobile Group is composed of Yang Qing, Zhou Zhiping, Zhang Zutong, you Zheng, Feng Changjun, Huang Chuan and Huang Yong.

According to public data, Huang Yong was born in March 1970 in Guang'an, Sichuan Province. he graduated from the School of Automotive Engineering of Jilin University of Technology with a bachelor's degree in internal combustion engine and a master's degree in material Engineering from the School of Materials Science and Engineering of Harbin Institute of Technology. He graduated from university in 1992 and worked as an intern in the engine factory of China first Automobile Group. This year, he joined the group as a technician, and later served as office secretary and deputy section chief. Reviewing his work experience, Zhou Zhiping has rich work experience in the automotive field. He has successively held relevant leadership positions in FAW bus and FAW Jiefang, and served in a number of functional departments of FAW.

Before taking office this time, Huang Yong served as party committee secretary and executive deputy general manager of FAW Toyota in April 2020. It is worth mentioning that Huang Yong was transferred to deputy general manager of Dongfeng Company after March 27. After Zhou Zhiping, deputy general manager of China FAW, was promoted to general manager of Dongfeng Company, another senior executive from China FAW. On March 27, Dongfeng Motor announced that Comrade Zhou Zhiping was appointed director, general manager and deputy secretary of the party committee of Dongfeng Automobile Group Co., Ltd., and removed from his post as deputy general manager and member of the standing Committee of the Party Committee of China first Automobile Group Co., Ltd. The appointment and removal of relevant posts shall be handled in accordance with the provisions of relevant laws and articles of association.

According to the official website, Dongfeng Automobile Group Co., Ltd. is a super-large automobile enterprise under the direct management of the central government, the predecessor of which was founded in the second automobile factory in 1969. In September 1992, it changed its name to Dongfeng Motor Company. In September 2003, the headquarters moved from Shiyan, Hubei to Wuhan. In November 2017, it changed its name to Dongfeng Automobile Group Co., Ltd.

At present, most of the Dongfeng Automobile Group Co., Ltd. are joint venture brands, the main joint venture brands include Dongfeng Nissan, Dongfeng Honda, Dongfeng Infiniti, Shenlong Automobile, in which the joint venture brand is the main source of Dongfeng automobile sales; independent brands include Dongfeng Lantu, Dongfeng Fengshen, Dongfeng New Energy, Dongfeng Hong, and so on.

Data show that in the first quarter of this year, Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd. accumulated sales of 660542 vehicles, up 28.3% from the same period last year; subsidiary Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd. accumulated car sales of 45232 vehicles, up 31.1% from the same period last year.

Among the brand segments, Dongfeng Nissan (including Dongfeng Infiniti and Qichen) sold 171486 vehicles in the first quarter of this year, up 4.4 per cent from the same period last year, while Dongfeng Honda, another Japanese joint venture brand, sold 136187 vehicles, up 25.6 per cent from the same period last year. However, DPCA fell, with cumulative sales of 19473 vehicles in the first quarter, down 6.3 per cent from a year earlier.

In terms of new energy vehicle sales, although Dongfeng Automobile New Energy Transformation Road is not late, but the performance is not good. Data show that in the first quarter of this year, Egett New Energy fell 91.0% to 1786 vehicles compared with the same period last year, while Lantu's cumulative car sales increased by 187.7% to 16345 vehicles. Although Lantu Automobile has increased significantly compared with the same period last year, it is still a far cry from the new car-building forces in the mainstream of the car market, and this growth is tantamount to a drop in the bucket for the decline in sales of the entire Dongfeng Group.

On the whole, although the sales of Dongfeng Motor picked up in the first quarter of this year, the growth rate of the joint venture brand has been much slower than before. In addition, it is still a long way for Dongfeng Motor to rely on new energy to achieve growth. In this context, including Yang Qing, Zhou Zhiping and other management burden on the shoulder, and this time Huang Yong took up the new position, "Dongfeng Motor follow-up sales growth" will also become an important task.

At the previous 2023 annual meeting, Yang Qing said that Dongfeng Group had set a "challenging" target for passenger vehicle sales and commercial vehicle sales in 2024, with a year-on-year growth rate of 30.7% and 20.7% respectively, with a total sales target of more than 3.2 million vehicles.
