On May 10, a customer slowly drove a car up to a display stand at Chang’an Automobile’s factory in Chongqing Liangjiang New Area using a remote control. The car is a Chang’an UNI-K model that just came off the assembly line, bringing the total number of cars made by the same company to 20 million.
This special event is also the start of the first Chinese auto brand that can make 20 million cars.
In 1984, Chang’an began making cars. In 2001, the number of units made reached one million. In 2014, the total number of cars sold went over 10 million, making it the first Chinese automaker to reach that number.
Chang’an Automobile has now made 20 million cars, which is a big deal. Also, both production and sales have increased by 20 times in the last 20 years, which shows that the company is growing quickly and well.
This is because it has a wide range of products for different types of markets, has built a good reputation over many years, and people trust the quality and technology of its products.
More importantly, Chang’an has made its products more appealing by improving their designs and giving users a better experience by using new energy and smart networking technology in the past few years. So, the company has fought its way out of the bad market and is now one of the most important Chinese auto brands.
Chang’an Automobile sold 843,342 cars from January to April 2021, which is 82.3% more than the same time last year. The company has grown from the previous year for 13 months in a row. At the same time, the average price of passenger vehicles made by Chang’an has gone up by 34%.
Chang’an Automobile has grown into a global automaker with 88 branches or subsidiaries and a sales network that covers more than 50 countries and regions. It supports 1.5 million jobs in the upstream and downstream parts of the industry chain.
