Company Background

Chongqing Changan Automobile is a core company of Chongqing-based Changan Automobile Group.

It aims to produce and sell 1.17 million such vehicles a year from 2017.

Chairman Xu Liuping said his company will focus on developing new-energy vehicles, with the aim of raising the share of such cars to total production to 30% by 2020. The company sees Russia as an important overseas market, and also has production facilities in Iran and Brazil. It has about 80,000 employees.
