Ⅲ. Zongshen Power was listed into“The Fourth Batch of Industrial Product Green Design Demonstration Enterprises”& CFMOTO Power and Chongqing XIEMA Machinery Crankshaft were listed into “2022 Smart Manufacturing Demonstration Factory Unveiling Unit and Excellent Scene.”
On November 21, 2022, the MIIT announced the list of “Industrial Product Green Design Demonstration Enterprises (the fourth batch)”, and Zongshen Power was included in this list.
On December 20, 2022, the MIIT, the NDRC, the Ministry of Finance, and the State Administration for Market Regulation announced the list of “2022 Smart Manufacturing Demonstration Factory Unveiling Unit and Excellent Scene.”CFMOTO Power was listed into “2022 Smart Manufacturing Demonstration Factory Unveiling Unit ” , and Chongqing XIEMA Machinery Crankshaft was listed into “2022 Smart Manufacturing Excellent Scene”.
Ⅳ. The transformation and upgrading of motorcycles & the popularity of recreational motorcycles
In 2022, the production and sales of the large-displacement recreational motorcycles (displacement of over 250CC) in China will be about 600,000, a year-on-year increase of more than 50% against the trend, and the sales of motorcycle recorders, helmets, and clothing have increased exponentially.
