CHANGCHUN (Xinhua) – Sales of the Jiefang J6 heavy-duty trucks have reached one million units, making the J6 a leading truck model in China, according to FAW Group Corporation.

A ceremony to witness the one millionth J6 truck rolling off the production line was held on Monday in Changchun, capital of northeast China’s Jilin Province. The red truck was delivered to its buyer at the ceremony.
