Of all the trucks that entered the market last year, 265,000 were medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, holding the biggest market share in China at 19.7 percent, it added.

The company exported 6,729 units of medium- and heavy-duty trucks in 2017, up by 26.7 percent annually. Among them, 1,138 units were sold to Vietnam and 460 to Russia, registering an annual growth of 108 percent and 360 percent, respectively.

Since the first Jiefang truck was rolled off the line in 1956, the brand has sold more than 6.6 million vehicles and has expanded its presence to 80 countries and regions.
