As one of the top four automobiles groups in China and the top selling domestic Chinese automotive brand, Changan Automobiles boasts an industrial history stretching back 153 years. With 32 years of experience in building and selling passenger vehicles, Changan is an early leader in the Chinese auto industry.
Chang’an’s early origins can be traced back to 1862 when Li Hongzhang set up a military supply factory, the Shanghai Foreign Gun Bureau.
In November 2012, Changan Ford Mazda Automobile was divided into two new joint venture companies: Changan Ford and Changan Mazda
In 2013, Changhe was transferred to Jiangxi provincial government for restructuring, and later became a majority-owned subsidiary of another Chinese automaker BAIC Group.
In 2010 Chang’an became the fourth most-productive car manufacturer in the Chinese automobile industry by selling 2.38 million units.
The company also released a new logo for its consumer offerings in 2010 while commercial production retains the former red-arch brand.
In 2009, Changan acquired two smaller domestic automakers, Hafei and Changhe.
In 1959 a predecessor entity, Chongqing Chang’an Arsenal, under contract to the government, began auto manufacturing and built Changjiang Type 46 vehicle which was the first production vehicle of China. Changan introduced minicar by licensing from Suzuki.
