|Parent||Chang'an Automobile Group|
Hafei, officially Hafei Motor Co., Ltd. (Chinese: 哈飞汽车), is a Chinese automaker that manufactures sedans; MPVs; and mini vehicles, small trucks and vans for commercial use. It is currently a subsidiary of the Chang'an Automobile Group.
Hafei was formerly owned by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, but in 2009 the Chang'an Automobile Group purchased most Hafei-related assets prompted by a Chinese State policy aimed at consolidating the domestic automobile manufacturing industry.
The earliest Hafei products were Suzuki Carry-based microvans and trucks sold under the Songhuajiang brand, named after the Songhua River, but since 2002 they have been sold directly as Hafeis. Their vehicles have always carried the "HFJ" identity code, no matter the brand.
Hafei has production facilities in Northern China.
Hafei has produced small cars and MPVs in addition to small trucks and commercial vans. These so-called mini vehicles make up the majority of the Hafei model line. Many Hafei consumer offerings were designed by Pininfarina.
