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.

Auto Insurance

Defined as: The contract by which the insurer assumes the risk of any loss the owner or operator of a car may incur through damage to property or persons as the result of an accident. There are many specific forms of automobile insurance, varying not only in the kinds of risk that they cover but also in the legal principles underlying them.

In “plain” English, this means coverage that is carried by someone who is driving a motor vehicle that is involved in an accident that causes property damage or personal injury to someone.

Currently, New Hampshire and Wisconsin do not have “compulsory auto insurance liability laws”. Simply put, this means that these states do not require licensed drivers (and there should not be any other kind of driver) to have some type of auto insurance policy that provides at least minimum coverage. The remaining 48 states do have such insurance laws in effect.

You should check with the state you live in if you have questions concerning whether or not you are required to have auto insurance, and also to determine if you are required to have a certain amount of coverage. If you are required to have a certain amount, you will then need to check to see if there is a minimum amount and maximum amount.
