Information about Hafei

Hafei Motor Co., Ltd., once a prominent player in China’s automotive industry, began its journey in the 1950s. Established in Harbin, Heilongjiang, Hafei initially thrived by manufacturing a range of vehicles, including sedans, MPVs, and small commercial vehicles. Their production leveraged partnerships with international designers like Pininfarina, enhancing their product appeal through sophisticated design touches.

Despite its promising start and a diverse vehicle lineup, Hafei faced turbulent times in the rapidly evolving automotive market. The turning point came when the brand was absorbed by Changan Automobile as part of a broader industry consolidation orchestrated by major Chinese automotive groups. This acquisition marked the end of Hafei as an independent brand, transitioning its facilities and capabilities to support Changan’s joint ventures, particularly with Ford. This shift led to the cessation of the Hafei brand, with its resources being redirected to bolster Changan Ford’s operations in the region.

Today, the legacy of Hafei lives on more in the contributions it made to Changan’s growth rather than through its own branded vehicles. The Harbin plant, once the heart of Hafei’s manufacturing prowess, now serves as a vital component of Changan’s expanded production capacity, illustrating a common narrative in the fast-paced automotive industry where legacy brands often get woven into the fabric of larger conglomerates.
