Ford’s Massive New Nanjing Test Center a First for China



The Ford Motor Company is reinforcing its commitment to product development and innovation in China with the opening last week of the ¥680 million Nanjing Test Centre (NTC).

As part of Ford’s RMB 1.3 billion investment to further innovation at its 2,000-employee Research and Engineering Centre in Nanjing, the NTC is Ford’s first China-based facility capable of fully proving out new vehicles.

The NTC will enable Ford to develop the next generation of vehicles for China and the Asia Pacific at a quicker pace than ever before. The centre includes close to 80 different types of real-road surface conditions, a three-kilometre test track and sophisticated emissions testing facilities. There will also be a new laboratory for noise, vibration and harshness testing that will allow Ford to deliver vehicles that offer a smooth, quiet and relaxing driving experience.
