TEDA: With Solid Industrial Foundation, We Make a 100-bln-scale Auto Industry Cluster Possible
TEDA, the birth place of IFCAID and the permanent venue of it since 2020, boasts superior location and strong industrial foundation. Its mother city Tianjin is situated at the heart of the Bohai Economic Rim as the maritime gateway for not only the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Megalopolis but also East China, North China and West China. With solid industrial groundwork, Tianjin is a major auto production base in China. TEDA, as the main carrier of Tianjin’s auto industry, is a national-level auto and auto parts export base, and one of China’s earliest demonstration bases for neo-industrialization. Local auto industry has maintained robust growth and become an important propeller for the region’s economy. Meanwhile, TEDA’s 100-billion-scale electronic & IT industry cluster also provides infinite potential for its auto industry now and in the future.
TEDA Accounts for 99.9% of Tianjin’s Vehicle Output with Fully-fledged Industrial Chain
The auto industry in TEDA grew robustly.We not only gathered a galaxy of well-known joint ventures and indigenous car brands, but also formed a fully-fledged auto industry chain. So far, TEDA has been home to carmakers leading the whole chain like FAW Toyota, FAW Volkswagen and Great Wall Motors. Besides, over 200 auto parts and service suppliers complement the industrial map with key players like Samsung SDI, Volkswagen Automatic Transmission, Tianjin AW Automatic Transmission, FAW Toyota Engine, Yazaki, Hyundai Mobis, FAWAY, Great Wall Automotive Finance, etc. TEDA’s vehicle output accounts for 99.9% of that of Tianjin. In 2021, 942,000 vehicles rolled off production lines from here, with a total output value of 141.55 billion yuan.
Renowned R&D Institutions at Home and Abroad Driving Robust Auto Growth
With great vitality in S&T innovation, TEDA has formed a R&D system covering the whole auto chain. We are home to six domestic R&D institutions, including R&D Center of Qingyuan Electric Vehicle, FAW Technology Center Tianjin Branch, CATARC (Tianjin) Automotive Engineering Research Institute, Heavy Equipment Technology Research Center, Tianjin Electric Vehicle and Hybrid Vehicle Research Center and Tianjin Rapid Prototyping Technology Engineering Center, as well as six foreign-funded independent R&D institutions, such as Stanley Electric, Denso Ten R&D, Panasonic Automotive Electronics, Kumho Tire, AVL List Technical Center and FAW Toyota R&D Center. These institutions inject new impetus into the auto industry.
In the future, TEDA will keep up with the needs of industrial development, with a focus on the chain of new energy vehicles and core components.We will improve the auto eco system, and make ourselves a world-class auto city.
