The history of Jiangling Motors Corporation., Ltd. can be traced to a truck repair shop opened in Nanchang in 1952 which operated under the name Nanchang Motors Repair Factory. In January 1993, the company entered into the Isuzu Joint Venture with Isuzu and Itochu. The joint venture acquired the non-exclusive right to produce the cab compartment and certain components of N-Series light truck and to assemble vehicles. The company was granted the approval of Jiangxi Province Economic Restructuring Commission to be reorganized to establish a joint stock limited company on February 20, 1993. JMC A shares and B shares got listed on Shenzhen Stock Exchange on December 1, 1993 and September 29, 1995, respectively.
At the 2006 Paris Motor Show, Landwind returned to Europe and displayed an updated version of their sport utility vehicle, now called X-Pedition, as well a compact MPVcalled Fashion that would compete in the same size class with products such as the Kia Carens.
In late 2010, Jiangling released the first JMC-brand passenger car, the Yusheng SUV.
