About Changan

Chang'an Automobile (Group) Co., Ltd. (simplified Chinese: 重庆长安汽车股份有限公司; traditional Chinese: 重慶長安汽車股份有限公司; pinyin: Chóngqìng Cháng'ān Qìchē Gǔfèn Yǒuxiàn Gōngsī) (also called Chang'an Motors, Chang'an Auto and Chana Auto) is an industrial manufacturer in Chongqing, China. The company has three joint ventures to build automobiles with Chinese, Japanese, and Western auto companies, and plans to build self-designed models for export in the near future. As of 2005, Chang'an ranks the fourth among the "Big Five" automobiles makers in China (The other four are First Automobile Works, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, and Chery Automobile). Its corporation, Chongqing Changan Automobile Company Limited (SZSE: 000625) is listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

The company began assembling inexpensive commercial trucks under license from Suzuki Motors in 1990. Shortly thereafter, in 1992, the two companies formed Chang'an Suzuki to build licensed versions of the Suzuki Alto and Suzuki Cultus. In 2001, Chang'an Ford was formed to build CKD Ford Focus, Fiesta, and Mondeos. The company is currently building a new factory in Nanjing to build Mazda cars. The company's own self-branded vehicle, the Chang'an CM8, was launched in 2005; a hybrid version of the same is expected to debut in the second half of 2008.

In June 2008, the Ford Motor Company announced that they would begin supplying transmission components and parts to Chang'an Automotive as part of that company's $800 million contract with the Chinese government.

Six Major Factors that Influence Auto Insurance Rates

No two car insurance rates are the same. From driver to driver, several factors will change how much a policyholder pays for even the same coverage. Here we review the six main components that go into the auto insurance rates recipe.

1. How Much You Drive

Car insurance companies measure rates based on risk. The more miles you drive, the higher the risk you will be in a car accident. You’ll pay more if you drive more. If, on the other hand, you drive fewer than 10,000 miles annually, you may qualify for a low mileage discount from your auto insurer. People who carpool often receive discounts because they drive less frequently.
