Al Habtoor Motors, the Dubai-based car dealer, has announced plans to launch vehicles by Chinese auto maker JAC Motors in the UAE.

The Chinese car manufacturer will make its foray into the UAE with its line-up of passenger cars and trucks following an agreement signed with Al Habtoor.

Part of Al Habtoor Motors strategic long term vision, this new partnership aims to make JAC Motors one of the car brands in the UAE in the next five years, a statement said.

Joe Rogan, director of sales at Al Habtoor Motors, said: "Al Habtoor Motors plans to open the first JAC Motors showroom in Dubai followed by Abu Dhabi in the first quarter of 2014.

"We have plans to expand its dealership network to other emirates within two years after the first showroom is launched."

With an annual production capacity of more than 700,000 units, JAC, officially known as Jianghuai Automobile Co Ltd, was established in 1964 and has been listed in Shanghai Stock Exchange since 2001.

Currently, JAC Motors has over 500 dealerships and 14 assembly plants in over 50 countries in the world spread across Latin America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, South Asia and South East Asia.
