Major companies producing automotive engines

2020-07-23


1. Engine design

Austria AVL, Germany FEV, and UK Ricardo are the world’s three largest independent engine design companies today. Together with the Italian VM that focuses on the diesel engine field, the engines of China’s independent brands are almost designed by these four companies. At present, AVL's customers in China mainly include: Chery, Weichai, Xichai, Dachai, Shangchai, Yunnei, etc. The main customers of German FEV in China include: FAW, SAIC, Brilliance, Lufeng, Yuchai, Yunnei, etc. The main achievements of British Ricardo in recent years are the design of DSG transmissions for Audi R8 and Bugatti Veyron, helping BMW optimize the K1200 series motorcycle engines, and helping McLaren design its first engine M838T.

2. Gasoline engine

Japan's Mitsubishi supplies almost all gasoline engines of its own brand cars that cannot produce its own engines.

With the rise of independent brands such as Chery, Geely, Brilliance, and BYD around 1999, when they were unable to produce their own engines at the beginning of their construction, the performance of the two engine companies invested by Mitsubishi in China increased by leaps and bounds.

3. Diesel engine

In light diesel engines, Isuzu is undoubtedly the king. The Japanese diesel engine and commercial vehicle giant established Qingling Motors and Jiangling Motors in Chongqing, Sichuan, China, and Nanchang, Jiangxi, respectively, in 1984 and 1985, and began to produce Isuzu pickups, light trucks, and 4JB1 engines that match them.

With the off-line of Ford Transit, Foton Scenery and other light buses, Isuzu engines have found a blue ocean in the light passenger market. At present, almost all diesel engines used in pickup trucks, light trucks and light passenger vehicles in China are purchased from Isuzu or produced using Isuzu technology.

In terms of heavy-duty diesel engines, Cummins of the United States takes the lead. This American independent engine manufacturer has established 4 companies in China only in terms of complete machine production: Dongfeng Cummins, Xi'an Cummins, Chongqing Cummins, Foton Cummins.
