Changan Suzuki (officially Changan Suzuki Automobile Co., Ltd.) is an automobile manufacturing company headquartered in Chongqing, China and a joint-venture between Chang'an Automobile Group and Suzuki. Chang'an began assembling subcompact commercial trucks under license from Suzuki in 1990, and in 1993 the two companies formed Chang'an Suzuki to build licensed versions of the Suzuki Alto and Suzuki Cultus.
Changan Suzuki was formed in June 1993 with a registered capital of US$190 million. It was the first automobile manufacturing joint venture to be established by a Japanese company in China (although Isuzu Motors, Mazda and Nissan Motors had already established joint-ventures for truck assembly). The first SC7080 Alto, based on the Suzuki Alto/Fronte SB308 which was originally presented in 1986, rolled off the production line in November 1995. The car had already been produced by the Changan mother concern since 1991, and continued to be built by them until 1997. By the end of 2010 Changan Suzuki had over 1,000 car dealerships across China. In July 2011, it was announced that Changan Suzuki would build a second assembly plant in Chongqing, in a two-phase project. The first phase will involve a total investment of five billion yuan (US$777 million) and expand production capacity of vehicles and engines by 150,000 units each. Construction of the plant began in April 2012.
