Ural » URAL-Benz

Last year we learned that Ural Company was going to build a brand new truck in collaboration with Chinese company named Beiben. Since then we havent heard a thing about this project. Perhaps theyve canceled it? Not at all. A few days ago on Instagram we ran into a couple of photos, depicting some new truck with URAL logo on it. Later it turned out to be a Beiben V3 clone.

The photos quickly became viral, and later it emerged that those were secretly taken in the URAL factory. A few days later Ural representative told that the project was still alive, so it was not hard to realize that this is exactly what we had seen on those photos.

You may ask Why Ural-Benz?. Beiben is an acronym for Beifang Benchi, which means North Benz. The company builds large variety of trucks in collaboration with a German society named Daimler-Benz. Their contract was signed in 1988. The most part of their products are Mercedes-Benz trucks clones, built using Chinese details.

Why do Russian Ural need to collaborate with China? In fact there are a lot of advantages. First of all it allows Ural to go to a whole new level as long as their trucks became competitive and less expensive. Secondly, factories will now work harder and there will be more vacant positions. And finally, all spare-parts will now be produced in Russia.

Norinco is a gigantic Chinese company which produces lots of military equipment from rifles up to tanks. Automobile manufacture is one of multiple business branches, lead by Norinco Motors Co., Ltd, which includes several factories and societies.
