Huang Qifan: Chongqing will become a world famous car town


Recently Chang’an Ford Mazda started the construction of a new transmission plant in Liangjiang New Area. This is the first transmission plant of Chang’an Ford Mazda in China, with total investment of 350 million USD, which is estimated to be completed and put into production in the 4th quarter of 2013. The new plant has the world leading transmission production line and its preliminary design annual production capacity is 400,000. After the construction, the new plant will produce the advanced and fuel-efficient 6-shift automatic transmissions and the plant is mainly to provide auxiliaries for the Chongqing Production Base of Chang’an Ford Mazda.


Huang Qifan said that an integral automobile industry shall include systems of five levels, namely (I) assembly production line; (II) engine, transmission and other core components; (III) local production of 70~80% of automobile parts and components; (IV) strong R&D capacity; (V) integral after-sales service system. Chang’an Ford has been gradually perfecting the five systems during the past 10 years since its establishment. The establishment of the new transmission plant is a symbol that Chang’an Ford Mazda has formed the five major systems of automobile industry, which will further secure and promote its position in China’s automobile industry.


According to Mr. Huang, the target of Chongqing is to build a world famous car town from two aspects. One is the car production of China Chang’an Automobile Group (CCAG) with headquarters in Chongqing shall exceed 4 million in 2015; the other is the car production in Chongqing shall exceed 4 million, including the over 2 million cars produced by CCAG in Chongqing and over 1 million cars produced by other domestic and foreign automobile manufactures in Chongqing. Now Chang’an Ford has laid a solid foundation for the realization of this target.


Alan Mulally said that the new transmission plant will produce the most advanced 6-shift automatic transmissions and that both the transmission plant and the engine plant, the construction of which started not long before are for the future development of Chang’an Ford. According to Mr. Mulally, Plant 2 of Chang’an Ford will be put into production in the 1st quarter of 2012 and the new Ford Focus is now in the stage of mold testing.


Earlier, the construction of the second assembly plant in Chongqing with investment of 490 million USD and the engine plant with investment of 500 million USD from Chang’an Ford Mazda started. When all of these new plants are built, Chongqing will become the largest production base of Ford except Detroit and provide strong support for the rapid expansion of Ford in China, the world largest automobile market.
