Haval, the SUV brand of China’s Great Wall Motors Company, has broken ground on a new automotive factory in Yangchuan, Chongqing province, China. The new factory is said to be the result of a $1 billion investment and will be based on the company’s Xushui, Baoding facility, which is said to feature state-of-the-art equipment including the latest assembly and automated production technology.

The factory is expected to begin production in late 2019, with an initial production capacity of 250,000 units. Haval states Yangchuan was chosen over twenty other potential sites due to its strategic transportation and logistical links in China’s south-west region, with access to the Yangtze River and major rail links.

The Chongqing province is China’s largest automotive manufacturing hub, giving Haval access to skilled automotive workers and suppliers. The new factory is expected to provide employment for around 10,000 staff.
